Profootballtalk.com has reported that Marc Bulger will be back as the starter in two weeks when the St. Louis Rams travel to play the Washington Redskins. This really should come as no surprise. Marc was just given a $65 million dollar contract and was benched when Scott Linehan was looking for a spark. While Trent Green played ok on Sunday the real issue is getting an O-line up to NFL standards, and Marc Bulger to regain confidence in that line and vice-versa. Marc and that line will be tested over the next few weeks as the Rams will play the Washington Redskins, Dallas Cowboys, and the New England Patriots in their next three contests.
One of the first nuggets we’ve heard in the aftermath of the Linehan-for-Haslett swap in St. Louis is that quarterback Marc Bulger will return to the starting lineup.
By the way, Bulger originally was drafted by the Saints in round six of Haslett’s first draft with the franchise. Haslett coached the Saints from 2000 through 2005.
Bulger generated a passer rating of 73.2 in three starts this season. His career rating is 87.6.
