So the fact he got injured is almost completly out the window. As well, Bulger had a 1 to 1, TD to INT ratio, while Pennington had almost 4 to 1 two years ago. All in all, Pennington and Bulger are very close stat wise, but people just seem to like Pennington more.


If your from WV, why don't you like Pennington as well? He played his college ball at Marshall, another WV school.

I think Pennington is the slightly better QB, but Bulger has the much better team. So I give Bulger the edge in FF. Also look for Bulgers Int to TD ratio to get better this year.


LOL, I was thinking the same thing when I read it.

In any case, I like Pennington better but they'll both probably be battling between the #5 and #10 spots.

i think pennington is a much better QB, but i think bulger will have slightly better numbers this year because of the team around him. especially if he can dump the ball to a healthy faulk

Cheese, are you high? I have no idea what this statement means. His 5 INT's were against NE to clarify and I think you meant to say "he would NOT do that again." }:-)

Azarel, you read my mind, yes I did mean to say he would not do that again, this is the most efficient QB in the league.

I actually think that Bulger could be under-valued. He will go into the season as the #1 guy and get all of the practice reps in camps and preseason. That should help him run the offense better and the Vermeil's system is a fantasy players...uh...fantasy.
Penny is probably the better QB, but Bulger may have more of an upside.

I hate everyone on St. Louis so maybe a little biased but when I think of Penny I think of the Jets-Titans game. He was awesome. Haven't seen passes like that in a long time. The guy is a star.

I don't think the practice reps can be an excuse when you play the same the whole way through the year. Maybe the first quarter of the year. This will be his 4th year with the Rams. He should know how the offense is run by now.

I would be happy with either QB. IMO I would rather have Pennington, feel like he will make less mistakes.

I'm from WV to and would much rather pull for the QB from the better team(Marshall).

Bulger has the more talented supporting staff, but Pennington's swagger reminds me of Namath.

That said, I'm leaning toward Bulger. Faulk and Holt are the difference.
