I think he got hurt trying to take down a defender who picked him off or something. Something like that.

Come to think of it, I think you're right, against Indy on Monday Night. Maybe it was '04.

I think it was both last year. The original injury was the tackle, and then he came back and reinjured his shoulder when he got smashed.

Are people drafting Bulger with confidence or are they readily planning to take a decent backup QB not too far down the line?

Perhaps the Trent Green experience will happen again.

Green gets knocked out in the preseason thanks to a missed block. Warner steps in. Rams win Super Bowl.

Maybe not.

I drafted Bulger in the 5th, but took Bledsoe with my next pick. Bulger's the man when he's on the field, but my boy can be a little fragile. :-o

Inexperienced or not, they have simply better TEs, 2 better TEs now. The Rams TE, whichever one they put in didn't matter. I'm sure they will keep one of those veterans around as a chief blocking TE, like Jason Dunn-lite if neither of these kids pick up pass blocking quick.

Last year the rams could not protect Bulger. It is troubling to hear that they still seem to be having trouble with that.

yeah, by everyone's favorite RB, S-jax

"Bulger was injured late in the second quarter on a blitz by Arizona safety Adrian Wilson. The Cardinals also sent a linebacker on the play on the same side. Running back Steven Jackson turned inside to take on the linebacker, allowing Wilson a free path to Bulger.

Vitt said the sack was the result of a blown blocking assignment, but he did not say who blew the assignment.

It was telling, however, that Jackson was benched at the end of the game, when another successful Arizona blitz resulted in a sack and a lost fumble by Bulger's replacement, Jamie Martin. Martin was shaken up on the play but kept playing."
All of my analysis is based on PPR
