Bulger is picking up Saunders’ system

ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
MEQUON, Wis. — Like clockwork, the "tests" arrived at Marc Bulger's Pittsburgh home on a weekly basis.
"Every Tuesday that FedEx guy was at my house," Bulger said. "They started to know me."
The quizzes, which came compliments of new Rams quarterbacks coach Terry Shea, were a way of keeping Bulger's head in the playbook during the team's break from mid-June to late July.
(Actually, all of the team's quarterbacks received the packets.)
The tests consisted of "just drawing like 40 plays, the reads, the 'hots'... all that stuff," Bulger said.
So how'd he grade out?
"A 'C,' I guess," said Bulger, self-effacing as usual.
Obviously, the Rams are looking for more than a "C" grade from Bulger this season. But the tests helped Bulger get a mental grasp of the system being installed by new offensive coordinator Al Saunders.
