EVEN LOVIE AGREES
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.
