EVEN LOVIE AGREES

2

David Haugh writes today that it looks as if even Lovie Smith is no longer convinced that Rex is our quarterback. On Monday after evaluating game film Smith did not say his four magic words.

If Grossman was remaining Smith’s guy, Smith would have shifted the heat onto himself by stating unequivocally that he was sticking with No. 8. No good reason exists to leave Grossman twisting in the wind if a switch wasn’t coming. By saying he already had made up his mind but won’t reveal the decision publicly until Wednesday’s practice, Smith all but confirmed a change he had to make.

If any QB ever needed a break from all the pressure it’s Grossman. This team needs a QB that will not turnover the ball. Someone said “Well what if Griese is worse?”. That would be near impossible to do. Grossman is ranked only above Tavaris Jackson in passer rating.

    Before benching Rex, they better try to unleash him one last time. Not this game-managing bullshit that Turner’s making him do. Let throw down field, see what happens. If he sucks, sure go ahead and bench him. But the Bears aren’t winning a super bowl with Griese.

    at this point I’d rather take my chances with Griese. Teams have revealed Grossman. Somewhere along the line he’ll need to make plays by himself under pass rush/pressure and I just don’t think he has it in him. He has little to no feel for the rush in the pocket.
