    The Rex Grossman Experiment

    Should be about over.

    The guy has regressed from last year. Enough said.

    Re: The Rex Grossman Experiment

    He looked great on one drive tonight.

    That pick was thrown into heavy coverage, though.

    Berrian dropped an almost sure TD.

    Unfortunately, looking great on 1 drive per game is not going to get it done in the NFL.

    Rex Grossman is our quarterback.

    Sorry.

    It's gotta be frustrating CW...you and I have hashed this out many times. He just is not getting better - same mistakes again and again.

    If only he would realize, he just needs to drive the bus and not be a gunslinger, he'd be just fine - and so would the Bears.

    Re: The Rex Grossman Experiment

    The hardest thing for me to understand is that he has a boat-load of talent, but he must have the worst brain in the NFL. He has all of the tools to be a great QB...just not the mind.

    I was hearing whispers of Donovan McNabb coming to Chicago next year...I'll take it.

    Re: The Rex Grossman Experiment

    Yeah, put that blondie in, she'd probably do ok.

    Dallas really didn't deserve to win this game (pending they hold on), they had so many penalties - shooting themselves in the foot.

    Or, a person could say without the self-inflicted wounds - this would be a blowout.

    Re: The Rex Grossman Experiment

    I study math very good, it be like dis:

    Tony Romo > Rex Grossman
    Dallas Cowboys > Chicago Bears

    Couldn't have asked for anything better tonight being that my dad is a Bears fan and I am a diehard Cowboy fan...

    For all the people who talk crap about Rex Grossman: yes, he sucks overall...he can have glimpses of greatness, but he is too inconsistent, BUT wtf do you expect the Bears to do? Their backups are Griese and Orton!! Also, have you looked at the free agent QB's right now?? not much there. So they would have to do a big trade to get anything that will be an upgrade, and they will have to give up A LOT, bcuz Grossman isn't worth jack crap on the trading block.

    'How bout them Cowboys!!! 3-0 baby!

    Regarding Grossman, as Hawk Harrelson from the White Sox broadcast booth would say, "He gone!"

    There is a thing called the draft. Also, there is free agency.

    Do something. Almost anyone can tell, watching the last few seasons - Rex just isn't the answer. Leftwich was out there for a long time.

    IMO, Leftwich > Grossman.

    Rexy started off last season great. He had 7 games of over 100 QB rating. Thing is, I believe 6 of those were in the first 6 games. Then, the downhill slide began (for that season).

    As I type this, Rex just tossed another pick.

    He hasn't cracked 60 or 70 yet this year for a QB rating. His team is 1-2 and he's playing a major role in it being that way, instead of 3-0 or at worst - 2-1. Rex plays average or better tonight and the Bears win - or it's very close.

    So, the Bears have done this to themselves. Much like we're all upset at Shaggy for the missed kicks and most of that is the Cyclone's fault for not recruiting a better kicker - fans should be upset at Grossman - no doubt. But be more upset with the Bears coaches/staff for not doing something about this debacle at QB.

    Talent exists everywhere else - good and great talent. One guy is almost single-handedly sinking the whole team.

    I hate the Cowboys, and the Packers too. And they are both 3-0. I guess that's what I get for choosing to follow the Vikings at a young age. And then for some crazy reason, I picked ISU...
