    No WAY can Lovie keep this guy as his starter after tonight. Time to re-usher in the Brian Griese Era. Obviously this has been well-earned, but I feel bad for Rex. He always seems to be pretty stand-up about it, and comes off as a really nice kid. It's unfortunate that he...well...apparently sucks at football.

    The Solider Field crowd was chanting Griese's name during the XP attempt. I wonder how long Lovie keeps Rex as his starter...

    He is as inconsistent as they get.

    He can throw a long ball for sure, but his head doesn't seem too be in the game. Very innaccurate alot of the time also.

    That's just UGLY and Lovie shouldn't have left him in there. Poor guy. Poor crappy guy.

    This prolly is the end for Rex in Chicago. I can't believe they are still playing this stiff.

    Rex doing a stand-up, courageous job in the postgame P.C. - televised live on ESPN, which is a bit of overkill, IMO. Good kid. I feel really badly for him.

    Hey, I have a theory! Maybe Lovie kept hearing announcers saying things like the guys covering the Pats today -- how the big difference between the Patriots and the Bills was consistency at the Head Coach and Quarterback positions, and how teams that are always changing their HC and QB are never winning organizations. And maybe he actually believed them that the causation worked that way: that keeping the same QB makes you win! Rather than that, you know, if your HC and QB win they keep their jobs.

    I am so sick of that particular bit of idiocy.

    The worst was listening to Madden say that going to Griese wouldn't be the 'long term answer'. Who the F cares -- just win! All Grossman needs to be is Trent Dilfer and he can't even do that!!!

    why not let Kyle Orton have his shot? He went 9-1(not sure if thats the exact record) as a rookie.

    And Lovie say's after the game that Rex IS their QB. WTF. Is 6 INT to only 1 TD good enough for you? I mean, come on. He just isn't smart. 2 of the interceptions he threw were just aweful decisions. Throwing to a guy in tripple coverage with 1 of the DB is STARING right at you... I mean, come on.

    You gotta be freakin' kidding me.

    Seriously-this is too bad b/c the Bears are solid everyone else-you can just see how the REST of that team looked DEMORALIZED.

    theres gotta be a mutiny at some point, the captains have to step in and tell Lovie they want him out. Its not personal he's just terrible. Hahaha and Donovan McNabb was crying that black QB's have more scrutiny put upon them? I can't remember a QB ever having as much scrutiny put upon him than Wrecks Grossman

    When did it become Grossman's fault that his #1 receiver couldn't catch the ball today? If Berrian hadn't been dropping passes as if they were potatoes fresh out of the oven, Chicago might well have won that game.

    I counted 2-however, not to sound too detailed, but if anything, the Bears were fortunate Patrick Crayton dropped that sure TD in the 1st half(subsequently, the Bears blocked that FG)-so if anything, Berrian's drop on their next drive all but evened everything out. Berrian's other drop was when Jacques Reeves put a hit and stripped him of the ball.

    Crayton's pass has nothing to do with Berrian's drops. Berrian's drop cost the Bears a touchdown, in all likelihood. If he makes that catch, the game is different.

    For some reason-this has become a BIG issue in recent years-dropped passes. It's hard to pinpoint why.

    I don't know either, but they will kill a game as surely as a fumble if they happen at the wrong times. Just ask the Jets.

    Agreed. He seems stand up and I always appreciate it. I keep my indifference to others misfortune saved for the likes of a special group....for instance the HC of the NYJ.
    The QB spot is such a pressure position. What these guys go through mentally is brutal (you can chalk up Donovan's comments to frustration in part due to this too - regardless of whether his statement is true or not). Once the talk started last year (or was it the year before) about Rex, his job just became that much harder. The talk became a roar and I think that was a factor. A QB is got to be mentally blocking out a lot to make the difference between a TD and an INT etc etc. One little thing creeps in and I don't care if your Brady. Peyton, Donovan etc etc. Your performance will suffer and the din of the doubters will start to permeate the air around you. Of course the upside is you are making insane amounts of cash. That has got to be a comforting side note.

    Leave it alone guys. I actually feel pretty bad for him right now. Its humiliating to walk off your home field to your own fans booing him. Lovie Smith needs to get rid of him just out of mercy. He's throwing more TD passes for the other team!

    From what I have read before today everybody on the team thinks Rex is/should be the QB. It seems so blatantly apparent to the fans it should be Greise. There is something going on behind the scenes.

    I think that if they keep Grossman in now, it isn't going to do anything positive for Grossman or the Bears. Frankly, until he learns how to read, he's never going to make it. The guy is just awful at anything but throwing it to his primary receiver and even that sucks. I actually feel bad for the guy because he's not ready and he's taking the media hits that Lovey should be taking. If a guy's that bad, you don't make him the joke to lessen the heat on your team's performance.
