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.

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.
very cool AwwC. I dig info like that
