Former Rams Quarterback, Marc Bulger, To Be Honored Against Saints

The Rams have been all about giving their fans something to cheer about and give them a reason to come to the Edward Jones Dome. The Rams brought back the greatest show on turf as well as other former greats against the 49ers, they wore the throwbacks against the Titans, and have had other fun events.

This Sunday will be no different as the team will honor the man who took over for Kurt Warner and made his NFL debut in 2002. Bulger lead the Rams to the playoffs twice winning once, and was the last Rams quarterback to give the team a winning record.

With the Rams Bulger threw for 22,814 yards which is the second most in franchise history, behind only Jim Everett. Bulger also ranks second in completion percentage and third in touchdowns.

Bulger also represented the Rams in the Pro Bowl twice and was once name Pro Bowl MVP.  He holds the NFL record for reaching 1,000 completions faster than any quarterback in NFL history.

My fondest memoris of Bulger were in 2004 when he lead the Rams to three victories over the division rival Seahawks. One being a come from behind win in week 5 and another being in the wild card round of the NFC playoffs.

You also can’t forget about the 29-23 double overtime heartbreaking loss to the Carolina Panthers. Bulger came along at the end of an era which was the Greatest Show On Turf and finished his career with the Rams with a 96-95 record.

Feel free to share your thoughts about the Rams honoring Marc Bulger and share your memories of the end of the “good ol’ days”.
