Fred Mitchell of the Tribune talked to Dan Grossman, Rex’s father, who basically states the Bears are “where quarterbacks go to die” if we can borrow a phrase from Muhsin Muhammad. Grossman says that his son was “tainted” coming out of Chicago as a free agent. All because of what the Bears organization did to him.
I’m still waiting for Grossman to prove to the league that he’s one of the best quarterbacks, as he’s said he would. And my initial reaction is that Grossman has sour grapes just like his son. However, I have to say that the more I see the Orton’s, Benson’s, Justin Gage’s and Mark Bradley’s of the world move on and be decent players anywhere but Chicago, I don’t know what to think.
