Bulger questions St. Louis' effort

ST. LOUIS -- The normally soft-spoken Marc Bulger had to speak up: St. Louis had just lost to the Arizona Cardinals at home, and the Rams' mistakes made it "obvious" that some of his teammates are no longer committed.

"I know there's some guys in here who don't care," Bulger said after a 34-20 loss to Arizona in which the Rams were whistled for a season-high 126 yards in penalties.

Bulger said the way the Rams (5-7) have been repeating mistakes made it "obvious" that some players had given up on the team.

Marcel Shipp scored three touchdowns, Edgerrin James had 115 yards rushing and Matt Leinart won for the second time in seven pro starts for Arizona (3-9).
