Around the NFC West: Rams' QB picture hazy
Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando
Bill Coats of the St. Louis Post Dispatch says the Rams haven't committed to a starting quarterback for Week 11 after benching Marc Bulger during a humiliating defeat to the Jets. I don't see how the Rams can realistically give up on Bulger, unless the Rams feel as though Bulger has given up on them. The $65 million deal the Rams gave Bulger, coupled with backup Trent Green's advancing age, puts the team in a tough spot.
Also from Coats: Hands out three "F" grades for the Rams, but he reserves a "C" for the coaching. He's putting this one on the players.
More from Coats: The Rams' defensive line stood no chance against the Jets.
Jeff Gordon of stltoday.com says Rams coach Jim Haslett felt "humiliated" by the team's performance in the first half.
Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch says the Rams came close to suffering the worst defeat in franchise history. The Jets' decision to run out the clock deep in Rams territory might have spared them. Embarrassment is the key word in the Rams' locker room.
Also from Thomas: Running back Antonio Pittman gutted it out on a bad hamstring. Afterward, Haslett had "no idea" when Steven Jackson might return.
Brian Burwell of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch blames the Rams' front office for shortcomings exposed against the Jets.
