The ESPN Monday Night Football crew met with Ravens backup quarterback Marc Bulger before Thursday’s game against the Panthers, and described a beaten-down man.
Mike Tirico called Bulger a “defeated guy” after going through a 5-30 stretch as Rams starter, and Jaworski indicated Bulger is struggling to shake the football blues.
“We walked into that meeting, and it was like ‘I’m not sure I want to play; I’m not sure I’ll be here next year’ ” Jaworski relayed. “I just didn’t see the passion, the enthusiasm you have to play at this level, to work at it week in, week out. Maybe he’ll get it back.”
The Ravens better hope Bulger gets it back considering they are paying him $3.8 million this year.
(Meanwhile, Bulger’s first two drop-backs as a Raven: an incomplete pass and a lost fumble. Like he never left St. Louis.)
