Griese or Grossman? That’s the Big Decision in Chicago This Week

Grossman hands off

Now that Rex Grossman had one decent outing, should the Bears swtich back to him?  That will be the big question this week in Lake Forest, as the Bears decide who to start this week at QB.  Grossman came in for an injured Brian Griese, and led the Bears to a 17-6 win in Oakland.  He threw a 59-yard TD to Bernard Berrian that put the team ahead to stay.  Coach Lovie Smith said Monday that a decision will also come down to the health of Griese.  “Well, first he needs to be cleared medically, and from there, if he’s cleared medically, he should be ready to go,” Smith said.  Griese has a sprained left shoulder.  As for Grossman, Smith didn’t seem to want to tip his hand for Sunday’s game at Seattle, a team that the Bears beat twice at home last season, including in January in the divisional playoffs.  “Yes, it’s unclear who’s going to start Sunday. Once you get healthy guys, then you start … right now we finished with two guys that could play, Rex Grossman and Kyle Orton, so that’s really what we’re dealing with right now,” Smith said.

    As much as I hate to admit that Grossman helped the team on Sunday, I still think he is not the best choice for quarterback this season. I will be amazed if he can rally the team and move up in the standings. I had high hopes for Greise, but we won’t know if he could have done it or not now that he has been injured.
