Marc Bulger

Bulger ‘s name is on the initial list of 173 Modern-Era Nominees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s class of 2024. It might be a long shot for him to advance through the next round of cuts in November, but Bulger is listed as one of 10 quarterbacks to be included to this point.

As far as Bulger’s professional resume, he threw for 22,814 yards, 122 touchdowns and completed 62.1% of his passes in eight seasons as a member of then St. Louis Rams. Bulger assumed the starting role after Hall of Famer Kurt Warner moved on. Warner had led the Rams to two Super Bowl appearance, won one title and earned an MVP prior to Bulger taking over. Bulger spent one season with the Baltimore Ravens, but did not see the field.

Marc Bulger was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA and played quarterback for the prestigious Central Catholic High School in the mid 1990s before attending West Virginia from 1996-99. At WVU, Bulger held a 6.16 completion percentage, threw for 8,153 yards and scored 59 touchdowns with 34 interceptions. He then got drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft before eventually playing for the Rams.
