1st I would like to say, I am not a Rex Grossman fan, I don't hate him, but he is not the answer to the Bears

 

 

That being said, he is actually UNDERRATED, and would have made the Pro Bowl if he had started the season the way he ended it. Lets take a peak at his stats  compared to other "great QB's"

 

100+ QB rating games

 

Peyton Manning- 7

Marc Bulger- 8

Tom Brady- 5

Drew Brees- 5

Carson Palmer- 4

REX- 7

 So, Rex had just as many, and one less, 100+ passer rating games than Manning and Bulger, not bad when you don't have Torry Holt, Marvin Harrison, or Reggie Wayne on your team

Games over 200 Passing Yards

 

 

Peyton Manning- 14

Marc Bulger-  13

Tom Brady- 10

Drew Brees- 10

Carson Palmer- 12

REX-10

 Ok, the bottom number, but tied with brees and hanging with the big guys

High TD game

 

Peyton Manning- 4

Marc Bulger- 4

Tom Brady- 4

Drew Brees- 5

Carson Palmer- 4

REX- 4

 Same as everyone but Brees

High passing YD game

 

Peyton Manning- 400

Marc Bulger- 388

Tom Brady- 372

Drew Brees- 510 (wowzas)

Carson Palmer- 440

REX- 339

 Barely lower than Brady and Bulger here

High QB Rating game

 

Peyton Manning- 140.4

Marc Bulger- 134.5

Tom Brady- 128.2

Drew Brees- 140.8

Carson Palmer- 131.1

REX- 148.0

 Once again, the highest!

 

 

So, those are some pretty good stats, right?

yeah, but, i can't overlook the bad games

Week 6- QB Rating: 10.2 144 YDS, 0 TD's, 4 INT's, but a win

Week 9- QB Rating 36.8, 210 YD's 1 TD, 3 INT's, 1st L of the season

Week 12- QB 23.7, 176 YDS, 0 TD's, 3 INT's, L against NE

Week 13- 1.3 (!), 34, 0, 3, W against Minnesota, i think his worst game that mattered of the year, Minnesota had the 2nd worst pass D last year

 Week 17- 0.0 QB Rating, 2 Completions, 3 INT's

 

So, as  he gets older and more experienced, i think (hope), that he will eliminate these horrible games where he just snowballs, and turn into a very good QB

 

No hating on Rexy until he throws 3 INT's and no TD's in a game, how bout it!?
