It's no always about turnovers. It is about the plus/minus number. If you take the ball away more than you give it up, you have a great chance of winning and they are +5 coming into today.

I am watching the game and it looks to me that Bulger is making a lot of bad passes. On the previous possession bulger missed a wide open bruce and then a wide open Dane Looker.

I just picked up Warner cause I have bulger, im a little scared. :-o

I just don't think he is very good plain and simple. His arm strength is average at best and if doesn't make good reads he becomes exposed.

Dumbest move of the year for me this year, assuming Bulger was the man and dropping Chad Pennington for a bye week defense.

Yahoo 10 team league, 8-2 overall, 1st place

QB - Bulger*, Brooks
RB - Portis*, Henry*, D. Davis, Shipp, Hearst
WR - S. Moss*, Toomer*, J. Smith*, A. Johnson

that was a good drive, I still think Bulger is better than Pennington.

I'm hesitant to paste the following...however I'll warn you that this is from my Seahawks board from a regular Rams poster, I don't have a link to the article..or really anything for that matter.

So take it however you like.

End all be all, Martz is a tool. I've never seen such a bandwagon attitude towards his starters in all my life.

If you're starting Bulger regularly, you better lock Warner up (provided your back-up sucks).

Here's the post:


--------------------------


I know this post will probably be moved but I wanted to show you something that you don't see often.

Bernie took the time to post this on the message board before he did his article for the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

Bernie Miklasz of The Saint Louis Post Dispatch.

Martz was close to switching today

Quoted from BM in the Pressbox:

Greetings from Soldier field....i'm busy getting ready to transcribe and write but wanted to share a quick story with you....

Martz was prepared to change QB's during the game. At the half.
He asked Kurt if he was ready to go in there.
Kurt told Martz that yes, he was ready to play.
But then Kurt told Martz: don't do it. Stick with Bulger. Bulger will get through this.

Or as Martz told me privately, Warner said, "Don't do it to the kid, Mike. Stay with him."

Martz may not have made the switch, anyway, but after listening to Kurt's support of Bulger, he stayed the course.

Pretty remarkable fellow, this Warner, eh?

Postscript: Bulger in the second half was 18 of 25, 139 yds, 2 TD, 1 Int for a rating of 95.2. And we know what happened on the final drive. 6 of 9 (not counting the spike to stop the clock) to set up the winning FG.

Cheers,
Bernie

At least the team is still winning. Why isn't there as much speculation around Culpepper being benched? Frerotte was briliant in replacing him, Warner hasn't done a thing in years.

Maybe Rush has something about the media wanting certain QB
's to succeed. They do not seem to fuel the fire of benching certain QB's as they do other QB's.

How dumb would Martz look if he benched a winning QB. I mean his stats are not what they used to be but he is doing enough for the team to win. Would you rather him have 350 2tds every game and still lose or do what he is doing and manage to win.

lets be for real here people. all you warner fans will just have to wait for next year to see what team he goes to.
