Welcome to Rick Mirer’s Career, Rex Grossman

I have to preface this by giving Rex Grossman one thing: he took the Chicago Bears to a Super Bowl.  No matter how much we rip him, this can not be taken away.  He killed the first 6 poor teams he faced that season, with the help of a great defense and special teams unit.  […]

Rex is indeed “What we Thought he Is”

Grossman was at the helm as the starting quarterback on October 16, 2006.   That night Grossman dug the Bears a hole from which the defense and special teams rescued the team for a huge Bears come-from-behind win.  As everyone knows, that’s the night Cardinal coach Dennis Green declared that the Bears “ARE WHO THEY THOUGHT […]

No Bears Pass Defense, No Hope

Despite stopping the Tennessee Titans on the first drive of the game, then driving down the field behind Rex Grossman for an opening-drive touchdown, the Chicago Bears lost to the undefeated visitors 21-14.

Rick Morrissey continues the debate: is the whole receiver thing wrecking Devin Hester as a Hall of Fame returner?  He also mentions something I’ve been wondering: where has Brian Urlacher disappeared to this season? Dan Pompei writes about Titans’ coach Jeff Fisher, the former Bear and longest tenured head coach in the NFL. Pompei then […]

Mike Ditka for Senator 2004

This is as political as you’ll see me get here, I assure you. Make sure to get out and vote for your next President today, as well as every other office.  Just don’t complain about the state of affairs if you don’t vote. And don’t forget the Chicago Bears angle to the Presidentiial election.  Remember […]

Vaughn McClure writes his Lions at Bears 2008 game story. K.O. got KO’ed yesterday, writes Mike Downey. According to the Chicago Tribune, early indications are that Kyle Orton will miss a month with his ankle injury. I hope this will inspire Rex Grossman to play for a big free agent contract he could get if […]
