NFL Nation: Marcu Bulger
Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando
Quarterback situations are supposed to settle out during the course of an NFL season.
The opposite is happening in the NFC West.
- The Seattle Seahawks can't be sure when -- or if -- Matt Hasselbeck can return from injuries. Is Hasselbeck's body breaking down at age 33? Will the organization remain committed to him once Mike Holmgren departs after this season?
- The St. Louis Rams have benched $65 million starter Marc Bulger and hastily restored him to the lineup, with unconvincing results.
- The San Francisco 49ers appear no closer to identifying their long-term starter while working through a midseason switch from J.T. O'Sullivan to Shaun Hill.
Even the Arizona Cardinals can't be sure what awaits them at the position. Kurt Warner is putting up MVP-caliber numbers as the Cardinals threaten to run away with the NFC West title, but Warner doesn't have a contract for 2009.
As the uncertainty threatens the stability of every franchise in the division, we take an in-depth look at possible scenarios for each team:
