(On if NFL players are targets for trouble)
"No. You definitely are going to have more attention, but you put yourself in those situations. If you carry a gun into public and something like this happens, I am sure he did not mean for it to happen, you have to be aware of that."
(On how he feels)
"I feel pretty good. I am not having any side effects from the concussion. Besides from being a little sick, I feel pretty good at this point into the season."
(On what he saw in the game footage from last week's game against the Miami Dolphins)
"We left some plays out there and I wish I had a throw back. At the same time, after Monday we put that behind us and started getting ready for Arizona. We can't change anything and we can't worry about last week. We have to move forward."
(On if last week's game was the worst he has played as a professional)
"No I don't think so."
(On any changes that will be made going against a team for the second time)
"It is one of those situations where you want to change a little but the things that you did good, are the things they are going to prepare for. They did a lot of things good and we assume that they are going to do that. They are going to change a little and it is a cat and mouse game. It is like the first game of the year, you don't want to put a lot of thought into last season because they are going to change. That just goes with playing divisional games but I think at this point in the season, people do what they do. They do a lot of things and obviously (S) (Adrian) Wilson is their playmaker. They are going to bring him down into the box and they are going to blitz him. He is what makes that defense go and we have to be aware of where he is at all times."
(On if the wide receivers are getting open)
"Every week is different and they did a good job of covering us. Like I said, I don't want to harp on Miami. We have a big game this week."
(On scoring touchdowns in the redzone)
"Right now, that is our Achilles heel and putting up three points is not good enough. If there is one answer, we would do it or try to do it. We know we have to get in better situations. We have to be able to run the ball in the redzone and we can't take penalties. There are so many factors and we are shooting ourselves in the foot. We are not playing good football simple as that. There are a million different excuses but none of them are valid."
(On the struggles on offense the past two seasons)
"I think our line is playing better this year. You can tell when (RB) Steven (Jackson) is playing and when he is not. He is that guy that can get things going and the more we have him on a week-to-week basis, we can feed off of him. Unfortunately, he has been banged up the past two years and that kind of messes up our momentum."
(On going against QB Kurt Warner)
"Knowing (QB) Kurt (Warner), he prepares very well every week. Whether they are in a position that we are in right now or if he could win a division, he would prepare the same. We have our hands full with him and every team does because he is having a great year. I know what kind of player he is and he prepares great every week, not just this week."
Rams quarterback Marc Bulger talked Wednesday on if NFL players are targets for trouble, on how he feels, on what he saw in the game footage from last week's game against the Miami Dolphins, on if last week's game was the worst he has played as a professional, on if the wide receivers are getting open, on scoring touchdowns in the redzone, and on going against Kurt Warner.
