Marc Bulger has no qualms about holding a clipboard

NFL_Bulger.jpgWhen Cardinals tight end Anthony Becht came to town several weeks back for the West Virginia edition of his annual youth football camps, we were talking about possible destinations for his former WVU teammate, Marc Bulger.  Becht strongly hinted that Bulger was willing to accept a backup job in 2010, especially in light of the magnitude of some of the offers he had received.

Only a few days later, Bulger agreed to terms on a deal with the Ravens that will pay him $3.8 million in base salary for 2010 to hold a clipboard for starter Joe Flacco.

On Thursday, Bulger finally met with the media after passing a physical and signing his contract.  And he has no misunderstanding about the fact that he’s the understudy to the team’s version of Bette Midler in Rochelle, Rochelle:  The Musical

“It should be a different role, but it was made clear to me up front that
would be my role there,” Bulger said, per Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun.  “I understand whatever capacity I
can help Joe, I’ll do it.  It’s just about helping us win football
games.”

Bulger also said that he won’t offer up any advice to Flacco that isn’t welcome.  “I don’t want to be the guy who comes in and thinks I know it all,”
Bulger said.  “I’m going to let Joe let me know how much input he wants
me to give.  I just don’t want to be the know-it-all backup.  It’s real
easy to stand in the background and stand on the sideline.  I’ll leave it
up to Joe how much help he wants.  But I’ll be there for anything he
needs.”

It sounds like Bulger has experienced a few know-it-all backups during his career.  We wonder who he may be talking about.

    Bulger doesn’t care. He’s happy to get a paycheck. He checked out a couple years ago when he got the huge contract. He could still have something left though. The Rams were just SO bad…

    3.8 mil to wear a hat and hold a clipboard. Who wouldn’t want to do that?!

    Where’s Ravensmuscle? Not even on his own teams stories? What an azz. Marc Bulger will start for this team, when lil’ joey gets his uni-brow ripped off.

    Flacco will through for over 4K yards this year and lead the Ravens to the superbowl. Add that to ray rices’ 2500 yards from scrimmage pass and catch and then ask yourself How can this team be stopped. Scary I know and with injuries and ego’s nothing is certain in the NFL. BUT it sure makes you count the days until the blackbirds go to NY to face chico and the FATMAN!
    Cue the your corners suck and the defense is old comments and then ask yourself if you really believe this team is going to lose because of it’s Defense led BY an aging GOAT! I think not.

    great guy this Marc Bulger. I have known him for a long time. Marc is a perfect gentleman and will serve as a solid back-up for Joe Flacco. Marc is not the type of player who cares how much he makes, he is the type that is concerned about what he can accomplish to assist his team. He will be an asset to the Ravens.

    He threw for over 3,600 last year. Over 4,000 does seem out of the question…

    From Milan to Minsk
    Mike Florio, you are such a Seinfeld freak! I can’t help but notice the subtle (or not so) references you insert in your posts. Genius (the show, not you).

    This is what Baltimore fans actually believe.

    you gotta respect a guy who doesn’t cop an attitude about holding a clipbaord for $3.8 million. that sounds like one cat who has a brain to me.

    If Flacco gets hurt, Marc Bulger will know how to take full advantage of the weapons on that team.
    Mark that down!
