The St. Louis Rams Have Released Marc Bulger

The wicked witch of the NFC West is dead! The St. Louis Rams released or as I prefer shit-canned Marc Bulger today. To top it off it is Marc's birthday! What a great day. Time to start saving for my Sam Bradford jersey.

Marc Bulger was absolutely horrible over the last 3 years compiling a 5-32 record when starting, leading to the Rams overall 6-42 record during that period. From 2004 through 2006 Marc had three straight seasons with a QB rating of 92.9 or greater, including 2006 when he threw for 4301 yards, so what happened?

The Bulger apologist like to blame Marc's poor production on the offensive line, poor play calling, lack of talent, but never on Marc Bulger himself. Well Marc had his best year in 2006 while being sacked 49 times, so how great did the O-line play that year? I do not want to question an athletes heart or manhood but here is my own opinion on what happened to Marc Bulger. Marc Bulger is a very good athlete from a family of very good athletes. Marc at 6'3" and 200+ pounds looks the part of an NFL QB. Marc's father Jim was a quarterback at Notre Dame. I believe Marc like many kids followed or was led down the path their family usually chooses. Marc has great accuracy and played very well while at West Virginia. Marc was finally given the chance to play in 2002 after a series of injuries to Kurt Warner. It is horrible to say but Marc comes across as someone that is gifted at something but does not really care or have a passion for that gift. Even when playing well I never believed Marc enjoyed or wanted to be a winner in the NFL. He appears to go through the motions and he is actually so good that he could get by on that for quite a while. After being sacked 49 times in 2006 Marc has been awful and afraid to stand in the pocket and make the throws capable of moving the ball down the field in the NFL. It is no longer worth it to him to stand there and take the pounding so he basically packed it in. If he was a gamer, or a fighter, or a true NFL player that leaves it all on the field this never would have happened. The 62.5 million dollar contract Marc signed after the 2006 season including 27 million guaranteed money set Marc up for life. Many other things contributed to the Rams fall from grace as well but the quarterback is the key and Marc can no longer even pretend to be one.

According to Chris Mortensen the Washington Redskins were interested in dealing for Marc Bulger but once the Redskins traded for Donovan McNabb there was apparently no more reason to continue to hold onto Bulger who was slated to make 8.5 million dollar in 2010. Will Lovie Smith continue to add ex-Rams to the Chicago Bears roster?

You are an idiot. Don't know anything about football. You are pretending to be a football fan or you would have clue why the team was horrible. You are an idiot for blaming it on Bulger. What a clown. That's why any clown can write a blog.

I'm a Steeler fan and there is a rumor going round town (Pittsburgh) that the Rams are offering a boatload of draft picks for Rothlisberger.

Any such rumors going on in Ramland?
