The St. Louis Rams have been horrible in their first three games, and when a team is horrible, the quarterback is often the first player to take the fall.
But it's still a move that has to be questioned, for the simple reason that not many people who have watched the Rams this year think the problem is Bulger, Many more people think the problem is on the Rams' offensive line. And given that Green is one of the most fragile players in the league, it's hard to see that line keeping Green upright.
So this benching seems more like a temporary move than a permanent one, if for no other reason than Bulger will have to come off the bench to replace an injured Green, probably sooner rather than later.
