Bulger happy to have a new home

Posted on: July 15, 2010 3:52 pm
M. Bulger takes a pounding from Washington (Getty) When QB Marc Bulger spoke Thursday about his last three years in St. Louis, a weariness crept into his voice. Like he couldn’t believe what he went through as he quarterbacked the Rams to a 5-30 record as the starter from 2007-09.

Of course, Bulger – who signed with the Ravens last month, passed his physical this week and spoke with reporters on a conference call today – is a two-time Pro Bowler who’s thrown for nearly 23,000 yards and 122 touchdowns in his eight-year career. The fact St. Louis was so terrible with him as the quarterback these past three years obviously weighs heavy on his soul.

“I’m interested in football again,” Bulger said. “The last three years, they’ve been difficult out here. It just seemed like it was a job. We won five games here in the last three years, and it affects the whole building. To get a new atmosphere where you’re talking about trying to win a Super Bowl is exciting.”

Bulger is under no illusions. He knows Joe Flacco is the entrenched starting QB in Baltimore. He’ll wait to see how much advice Flacco might want from his new backup, but Bulger doesn’t see a problem with his new role.

“I’ve been starting for seven-plus years,” Bulger said. “It will be different role. It was clear to me up front that it would be my role there. Throughout this whole process, I was talking to teams where there were chances to be a starter and others where I had a chance to compete and obviously here as a backup. I understand that I’m coming in here as that, and however capacity I can help, I’ll do it.”

As long as he can help the Ravens, he’ll be pleased.

“Part of me wants to be a starter obviously. But if we’re winning games and if we’re headed to the playoffs, I’ll be just as happy as if I was the starter. Going through the last three years, it’s something I’ve never experienced. I’m upset I was a part of it. I just want to win games.”

Bulger happy to have a new home - YEA BULGER!!

i am glad that rams are not paying him to hold a clip board like they did with warner
Bulger is a true NFL player, not just a qb, give him the big contract, watch my fold up like a lawn chair.
Once he got used to being put on his back by EVERY defense, he became uncertain in his ability to make the throws an NFL qb has to make.
as far as being a backup, he just landed the dream job. Ravens are rebuilding an O-line that has been successful for a decade, so i think they know what they are doing there.
Flacco is young, but likes to take chances, if Bulger sees playing time from a Flacco injury, he should be able to step in fine and fill the position nicely.
Ray Rice will give him flashbacks of the pre-knee surgery Marshall Faulk that bulger go to watch Warner hand off/pass too

out of every NFL team out there, the Ravens seem to have made alot of great off season moves to position themselves for a big playoff run this year. only problem is that NFL is hardest sport to live up to the hype in, 1-2 bad games can easily cost you your playoff ticket, especially in the AFL
