After last weekend’s win over the Detroit Lions, the St. Louis Rams Coach Steve Spagnuolo has more reason to stick with current quarterback Marc Bulger, although the quarterback has thrown only three touchdown passes and has a passer rating of 68.2.
“I think Marc has done everything we needed him to do,” Spagnuolo said. “I’ve said this before; it’s not one position on the side of the ball, it’s everybody. He has been a leader, he manages the game, gets the ball to 39 (running back Steven Jackson), and there are pieces that he is working through, too.”
Bulger became the Rams won the job of starting quarterback over Kurt Warner, who was still wearing Rams jersey, in 2002 after he made his second Pro Bowl appearance. Since then, things did not go to the good direction. The Rams are 6-34 since 2007 and Bulger spent most of the previous two seasons taking a beating behind makeshift offensive lines, getting sacked a combined 75 times.
Will Rams have their favorable turn in 2009? It does not seem like possible. They lost seven straight games before last weekend and the win over the Lions was more like a fluke than a turn, still leaving the Nov.15th game against the 7-0 New Orleans Saints very little chance to win.
