It’s now being reported by the Chicago Tribune that Brian Griese will be starting for the Bears this Sunday against the Lions. Finally, many Bear fans prayers have been answered and Lovie has finally seen the light — or at least been forced by someone above him to make the change. Whichever it was, it’s a step forward.
No one expects Griese to come in and light up our passing game. I’d be satisfied if he just managed to avoid making the big mistakes that Grossman has managed to make on a consistent basis. God knows he probably has some rust on him by now, but I’m pretty confident that he can’t be worse than Grossman.
It takes a special QB to manage getting a sub 25 QB rating in 4 games last year. He had a 23.7, 10.2, 1.3, and the holy grail 0.0 rating. All in one season, and we still made it to the Super Bowl despite his many mistakes. I even hear some fellow Bear fans say “he led us to a Super Bowl”. Silly… but it gets said all the time.
