Good Rex, Bad Rex, Goodbye Rex!

In his Bears blog, Sun-Times writer Brad Biggs recaps a conversation Rex Grossman had with hosts on Sirius Radio today.

Read the entire blog post here.

Notably, Rex says that he’ll miss his teammates and coaches, but not the fans.  Shocker there.  Hey, I supported Grossman at the end of 2006 when he was taking a lot of heat, and even stated my backing of Grossman to ESPN.com.

But after 3 games in 2007, he lost me, and if he thinks he should have gained me back with his abysmal 6-quarter performance in 2008, he’s crazy.

On Sirius, Grossman stated that he’s more motivated than ever to take another team to the Super Bowl and prove he’s one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.

Good luck with that, pal.

    Marc Carl Parisien – Grossman is an average QB at best. If I were a GM he wouldn’t be my starting QB – not if I had any choice in the matter

  2. Roy, you have to admit, some of the hatred for him was a little over the top. I mean, he got booed on family day, and got booed when he did the right thing, like throwing the ball away when no one was opened (preseason). I mean, not even Bryan fricking Cox got that much abuse. Some of the flack he deserved (he just wasn’t very good in the end), but some of the stuff was a down right embarassment as a Bears fan.

  3. I agree with you JDM. I never booed him…actually I can’t remember personally ever booing a Bears quarterback. What would that accomplish? I still thought he was going to be the guy after 2006. I was done with him game 4 of 2007, but I wasn’t one of those booing him like mad. Yes, some people go over the top. But some of these writers have been acting like fans don’t have the right to have a poor opinion of him as a player, and I don’t agree with that.

  4. For me, the worst was the Arizona Monday night game in 2006. I never fully got over that performance.

  5. Rob, that was the first time I truly watched a Rex Grossman performance. My friend was raving on and on about how awesome he was for weeks, so he and I got together to watch that MNF game. I had that gut feeling Rex was due for a bad game, thing is I didnt know the game was going to be THAT bad….Still a great game though with the defense and Devin Hester. Unbelievable that we won.

  6. @JDM: I 100% agree with your viewpoint on Rex, well said.

  7. i was at that monday night game. it was all cardinals in all our faces for about 3 1/2 quarters. they had the victory celebration going at halftime. what a relief to see our defense lay the smack down and let me walk out of there with my head held high. hey Roy T., why don’t you have a ” your favorite bears moments” for us fans to talk about and have the warm and fuzzeys. would be fun, just an idea.

  8. Terrill…that’s a good idea. Let me get past the Ring of Honor thing, then maybe my favorite 10 moments with others being able to give everyone theirs. That should help get us past the offseason!

    How about Grossman’s Superbowl performance Rob and Scott? That game was an even match if there ever was any. Indianapolis had as many chinks in the armor as tbe Bears! I have no doubt if we had Griese in there by that game, we’d no longer be obsessing about the ’85 Bears.
