This just in. The St. Louis Rams announced that Marc Bulger will be their starting QB on Sunday against us:
The QB question has been answered. The St. Louis Rams will start QB Marc Bulger against Jacksonville in week 6. Kyle Boller has a concussion, a mild one, but Bulger will get the nod anyway, as long as he can practice injury-free this week.
OT Jason Smith is closer to a return, and some of the other lingering injuries players are dealing with seem to be moving in the right direction. SS James Butler is day to day. I'd really like to see this guy get back on the field, though Craig Dahl has done well filling in for Butler. CB Justin King might miss time with a bruise on his knee, or he might not.
Take a look at some of the positive things Spagnuolo commented on. One of them, offensive line play, was kind of an underrated plus this week. Alex Barron rebounded after his benching last week. I still don't see the Rams running through Jacob Bell much on the stat sheet, and that bothers me.WR Tim Carter is back.
After yesterday's blowout, and the fact that sadly the Jaguars are lacking to rush the passer, I don't know if I'm happy or not with this news. Our old freind (and my mentor) Vic ketchman said recently in "Jaguars Monday", that after watching the Rams against Minnesota yesterday (plus how the team played) it might be not a easy W as we might think now. I saw them against the 49ers just a week ago. They were awfull on offense (besides poor Stephen Jackson) and showed some signs on defense-James Laurinaitis might be such a threat what Aaron Curry were on Sunday. I hope he Rams will be the perfect candidate for bouncing back, but after yesterday I'm not sure on anything a bit.
Other news: Today in the jaguars locker room, Mike Sims-Walker and Quentin Groves apologized before the whole team after what they did on the weekend. Groves are fought with his tears, witnesses told (Vic said Groves panicked because he thought he would be late for the plane, and that caused most likely the accident) I hope the Jaguars can be unite as a team again on Sunday. And maybe this bitter experience will do good in the short and specially on the long way.
We have a rough week, but I think this defeat actully bring us back on track-this is a team in a rebuilding, with major problems (pass-rush; both lines just to name a few) and trying to bounce back from the horrible player selection on the Shack Harris era. We will see defeats (I hope not so big as yesterday) but the arrow still signs up.
Just be patient!
(PS: And for everything was happened yesterday blame me and my battle teal T-shirt incident, instead of Jack and his team)
