People will look at this post and say that I have lost it. Well my friends just read the BLOG........The Bears will only be contenders for 2 years.........The Offensive Line features LT Tait-32, LG Brown-36, C Kruetz-31, RG Garza-29, RT Miller-36.......This Line will be dismantled in the next two seasons. I think that Metcalf and Josh Beekman will be good but the LT and RT positions will need new faces.......Okay enough about that.
Grossman.....It is hard to evaluate him. He is either Good, Great, or Horrible. This year could be tottally different. Grossman is 6-1 217 I believe.....For a QB with that size 3 and 5 step drops is challenging. Every lineman is taller than Grossman so throwing lanes are hard to come by....When you drop back you have to find the lane, read the Defense, avoid the pass rush.......and make a great pass. Well Grossman has issues with this.
They will fix that issue by running more SHOTGUN. This formation allows Grossman to be 5yds back at the snap of the ball. Really there is no footwork necessary and Throwing lanes are easier to find. He has more time to read and react to the Defense. Rex was very successful running shotgun at Florida. The Bears have done alot for the Offense this offseason. Returning is WR Muhammad, WR Berrian, and RB Cedric Benson. Benson will carry alot and 3rd round pick Garret Wolfe could have a huge impact as a 3rd down Slasher back. The Bears made a HUGE upgrade at TE with Greg Olsen. You can tell right away that he will be a PLAYER. He really didnt have a good QB his whole College Career and he still looked like a Beast.
Now to Devin Hester......He was a very good Offensive weapon at Miami. He will be a similar player to Reggie Bush. He is not as good but he does have the speed and talent to become a HUGE WEAPON. Rex just has to play well and not make mistakes. With the new faces on the offense I think it will help and MORE SHOTGUN!
