Another day, another insult on the Bears.? Following last Sunday’s game Charger linebacker Shaun Phillips called Bear running back Cedric Benson “soft”.? Now, former Bear player and defensive coordinator Ron Rivera reportedly called Rex Grossman a “mental midget” to Charger players prior to the game.
Despite Bear players’ attempts to downplay this, and Rivera’s attempts to backpedal, I’m sure he said this.? But I like David Haugh’s comment in his article, which sums up the situation:
“The book on Grossman around the league tells the story of a quarterback with a strong arm and a weak head.? So edit it, Rex.”
Grossman is in his contract year, and I still think he’s going to step up.? We shall see.
