I don't know why the Ram's would mess with what is working now anyways, unless Bulger is having problems picking up the new system.
What's working? The Rams are 14 - 18 the last two seasons. Bulger's never played a full 16 game slate (Culpepper has done it three times). Bulger's never thrown more than 22 TD's in a season(Culpepper's done it 3 times). Bulger needs time to aquaint himself with Linehan's offense (Culpepper doesn't). Culpepper clearly needs elite WR talent to compete at a high level (which QB other than Trent Green
doesn't). The Rams have it. The Vikings don't. Linehan likes to throw the ball downfield. Bulger can't. C-Pepp can. Sure, Culpepper's injury is a concern. But Bulger's various aches and ailments are always a concern. There's always a certain amount of risk associated with a move like this but if C-Pepp can be 75% of what he was pre-injury...this is an upgrade over Bulger.
On the other hand the Vikes could use a model citizen, a QB who's willing to hand over the reigns to Brad Johnson for another season without rocking the (love) boat. Frankly, they need the President and CEO of the "get-along-gang" and Bulger strikes me as exactly that.
Bottom line: I would be shocked if a deal this nutty (starting QB for a....starting QB?) actually materialized. But if it did I really wouldn't be surprised if it worked out for both teams.
