Heh, Troy Aikman said it again today after saying it last week, "Rex Grossman is the only thing holding the Bears back!".
Yeah, sure the Bears clinched the NFC North champion title, but without a consistant, strong QB, you can't win in the play-offs, much less win the Superbowl.
I don't agree with that at all, Rhu. Look at the Steelers from last year. They had an incredable D, with an outstanding running game. Their QB was an average player, who managed the game effectively. So all Rex has to do is not turn the ball over and the coaching staff should put him into a possition to keep the ball (ie. less passes, more runs).
[Rex has got to step up, big time. Oh and I don't blame him completely, Lovie and Turner have got to call some plays that are more suited to Rex's game]
I agree with this somewhat. Rex only has to play one or two big games down the line, enought to secure homefield advantage. The rest of the time, he only needs to manage the game effectively by keeping the Ints down. Let's face it, the Bears are a run first team (as they should be with T. Jones and C. Benson), so Rex isn't expected to nor able to light it up in the passing game. All he has to do is complete the short passed when oppossing Ds are playing 8 men in the box. If he completes a few into the flats for 4-5 yards, he'll get the D to back off, then they go with their bread and butter.
