Bad Rex in Effect

I was a complete Rex Grossman backer in 2006.? The only thing that really, really bothered me was his penchant to drop snaps from center during his bad games.? (If my memory serves me correctly, I don’t remember him having this problem during his good games). So it frustrated me greatly to see Bad Rex […]

Gould Money

2007 Chicago Bears Football!

Here’s what I’m looking for tonight: No injuries.? I don’t care if the starters don’t play a single series, that would be better than a critical injury in the preseason. Adam Archuleta.?
