Man I remember back in the day I cruised to a title with Bulger, Holt, and LJ. Those days are LONG gone.

when the Rams are on the field they are pretty good, but the problem is
1)Bulger is injury prone
2)O Pace gets hurt every year now, and when he is gone it changes their offense a lot and not in a good way
3)Torry Holt is getting old and is not as durable any more



One post also mentioned them getting a O lineman then getting Deshaun Jackson in the 2nd round
The dolphins took the only o lineman with value at #2 so they would have to trade down or basically be forced to take a diff position, and who knows where Jackson will go...I think he will be there, but some team might see Devin Hester+ in him and jump on him in the 1st round

Fantasy Football Impact Report: Marc Bulger
Adam McFadden

Marcu Bulger is looking to put his durability issues behind him.

Marc Bulger was one of the biggest disappointments in fantasy football last year. Coming off of a 24-touchdown season in 2006 in which he passed for 4,301 yards, Bulger went among the top-5 among quarterbacks in pretty much every draft last season. He followed up what was usually a third-round asking price with mediocre numbers in the rare times he was healthy enough to play. Fantasy owners must ask themselves how much of Bulger's nightmare 2007 season was due to the Rams' injury troubles and how much was due to Bulger's personal performance

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.

Agree. I'd throw McNabb in there as well.

i think if he stays healthy he could post some great numbers, especially if you can get him around the 10th QB drafted, but i'd make sure i had a solid backup to platoon him with...probably someone i will avoid though
