Just Being Honest

 

I am no fan of Bulger and quite frankly equate many of the problems we saw last year on his absolute atrocious play, but his year I am happy to say I am eating crow on some well put together drives this year. So let me be the first (for a Bulger doubter, and I still remain in that category) that Bulger is not the reason we are losing our games right now.  Though he does not play a dynamic game that reins in play and puts together victories, his play has been solid and in many cases the problems with the receiving corp have severely brought his play down.  To be right on the point Bulger has truly overcame some serious flaws in his game of late to show that he actually has manned up.  He is sitting strong in the pocket, delivering good balls, and hitting receivers in stride and delivering a decent long ball (the interception in the first half was his fault).  Truth be told Bulger is not the problem and nor is he the solution, so no this is not a total endorsement for him to be our QB, but simply a recognition that he came into this season scared and quite frankly a liability, now he is a slight benefit, not a game dominator, but not the game loser.  In fact to identify the problem with the team and its ridiculous start we can equate this to a primary fault of design.  That is the personnel decisions in the offseason obviously couldn't all be answered and our full knowledge of the lack of WR was apparent, but when I speak of design I should be clearer and state the obvious.  The Rams suffer from a form of dementia for identity crisis.  Our team simply put has no identity on offense, unlike a schizophrenic that has many identities, our team can't find one or perhaps maybe there is confusion in our identity.  Our play calling is highly reflective of the style that was employed with the Eagles where the running game was created by the passing game.  Instead of playing smash mouth football the team utilized misdirection’s and trickery to induce mis-position by the other team to elevate their running attack.  What our coordinators don't realize is that is Marc Bulger not Donovan McNabb and that is Stephen Jackson not Brian Westbrook.  Meaning McNabb's elevated play and leadership make him the game dominator and the primary focus of defenses, but our strength and focus is not our QB, but our all pro Tail Back Jackson.  Westbrook's stats and abilities are highly affected by the overall success of the passing game, but we are not that team.  Instead of trying to trick people out of position we need to get simple and mean and that is done with two TE sets, full back in the backfield and smash that stupid ball down teams throat.  That is in my humble opinion.
