I see no reason in continuing to ride the Brian Griese train when he throws just as many interceptions as Grossman. Griese isn't fumbling snaps and runs a decent two minute drill, but he is not going to carry the Bears to a winning season. The Bears have so many holes in their roster right now that they would need a miracle to reach the playoffs. Cedric Benson has done exactly what I thought he would do this year: nothing. The McCasky's definitely should have kept Thomas Jones and dealt Benson instead. Benson is younger which means he would have garnered a much higher value in a trade and Jones was clearly working as the Bears RB even if he isn't as young as Benson. The defense is in horrible shape this year, and not because of injuries. I think that axing their last defensive coordinator was an awful decision. Why do teams see fit to remove players and coaches that are working and try to gamble on someone new? And why do they show blind loyalty to players like Benson and and an offensive coordinator like Ron Turner that continue to stink up the place?

But all of that is spilled milk. My point is that now that the Bears are 3-5, you might as well give Grossman one more chance to show what he can do. He's in a contract year and right now the team is leaning towards not bringing him back. It would be a good business decision to give him another shot on the field to see if he has gotten himself under control or is just a total write off. Brian Griese is not the future of this team at QB, but Grossman could be if he could settle down and execute. Before you throw Rex out like yesterday's dishwater, let him get back in the line-up. If he still stinks then make Griese the starter for the rest of the season, but if Rex actually plays a decent game he can stick around and see if he can manufacture a few wins. The Bears really have nothing to lose by giving Rex another shot now, so why not?
