Yet another week of debate about the Chicago Bears starting quarterback. According to Lovie Smith, he doesn’t at this point know who the starter will be this Sunday in Seattle. He says they will check on Griese’s health by Wednesday or so, then “go from there.”
Smith says “go from there” a lot, if you listen to him. In my professional life, I say “let’s do A, then B “go from there” at times. But the more I hear Smith use that phrase five different times in a press conference, the less I want to use it.
I am convinced now that Grossman isn’t going to come in and save the season. As he took snaps on Sunday before relieving the injured Griese, I did get a little excited, but it was like getting ready to go to lunch with an ex-girlfriend. The relationship had its fantastic moments, and thinking about it was exciting, but in the end you realize it was never going to work out in the first place. And it’s a bummer.
