Smith Officially Names Griese as Starting QB

Griese in the mix at QB

Brian Griese will start at quarterback for the Bears Sunday at Detroit. Head coach Lovie Smith confirmed the move after practice yesterday. The Bears were 1-and-2 with Rex Grossman under center this season. Grossman completed 47-of-89 passes for 500 yards and one touchdown in the first three games. He was also picked off six times and has a passer-rating of just 45.2. Griese hasn’t started a game since October 16th, 2005 when he and the Bucs beat the Dolphins 27-13. In six games with the Bears last year, Griese completed 18-of-32 passes for 220 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.
