PERPLEXY REXY

2

Call it just a preseason game. Call it working out the kinks. Remind yourself that he was brutal during last year’s preseason, only to be called an early MVP candidate. Still…

How do you fumble 3 times in one quarter? Isn’t Rex supposed to have some shiny, new mechanics?

“We should be beyond that,” coach Lovie Smith said.

No doubt. Does Rex have a nervous condition? For all the confidence he has, it seems that some of the bigger games are the ones that he runs into problems. And while last night can’t be considered a “Big” game, it was still against Manning and the Colts and on Monday night in front of a national audience.

Other games Rex freaked in last year:

  • Arizona. Sunday night game.
  • Miami. The game after the Arizona game, against a good defense.
  • New England. 3 picks against Brady and crew.
  • Minnesota at home.
  • Green Bay in the season finale.
  • New Orleans in the playoffs
  • Indy in the Super Bowl.

Could be Grossman is indifferent to all of that and he just has bad games when he has them. And he certainly had some great performances in some other big games.

The Bears open with SD, KC, Dallas and travel to Detroit. Will Grossman be the starter come week 5? How long do they wait this year before they pull the plug?

I’m an unabashed Grossman fan. I think he should be the starter. But even his parents must have questions after last night.

    “I promise you that I’ll fix those problems”. Rex is a much better politician than he is a QB.

    I stated my thoughts pretty clearly last year if you remember… I really do think Grossman is a very mediocre QB and should have been replaced in the middle of last season. I saw a quote about him… something about how his numbers look better than how he actually plays. That sums it up for me. His overall numbers weren’t bad last year, but you just never know what you’re going to get from him. And when he’s bad, he’s REALLY bad.
