I believe that Marc Bulger could be a valuable asset to struggling NFL teams. If he can stay healthy and have a quality team around him with a good offensive line, I believe that he could take a team to the play offs or even the superbowl. His production has trailed off quite a bit in the last few years, but so did the quality of Rams players. His offensive line was absolutely terrible as were his receivers for the most part. There are very few NFL quarterbacks who can succeed behind porous offensive lines.

He is Thirty-three years old, which leaves him with eight or so years of playing time according to Favre (really more like four years). I think that if Favre decided to not come back to the Vikings, they could continue their success with Bulger. I also think that he could be a good fit on the Raiders, but they would need to improve their offensive line in the draft. I also think that if he doesn’t mind being a back up the Eagles could draft him as an insurance policy for Kolb and Vick. I think and hope that Kolb will succeed, but if he doesn’t, I don’t want to rely too heavily on Vick. He hasn’t started for years. He didn’t look that great throwing the ball last year and he was always a better runner than passer. I don’t think that he is as fast as he used to be either. His decline could have just been because he was only back for one year, but I would rather be safe and have a third starting capable quarterback. The other option to getting Bulger in Free agency is to draft a QB. I’m going to look at some more middle round QBs for the Eagles to possibly draft. I think that I would almost rather have them pick up Bulger of another veteran because then we could focus more on the O-line and the defense, but we also have to think about the future after Kolb. Is it too early to draft another good QB to train and improve behind Kolb? I don’t think so. Kolb is twenty-seven years old, which would give a young QB five years of improvement when Kolb is thirty-two. At that point if the younger QB panned out we could either start him or trade him. We would get a lot more value for him than the original pick. If Kolb wasn’t working out too great or we just thought that he was too old, we could trade him and start the younger QB. I think that the best course of action though would be to get a veteran this year and either next year or the year after that draft a young potential starting QB of the future. That way we can focus on improving Kolb’s protection and our bolstering our defense.
