He may say he wants out but I am not buying it..I don't think he is very bright if he wants to leave the situation he has now. Who/what do you think we could trade to get this guy? I am still a believer in Lloyd. He looked good until the injury. The passing game needs more creativity. We should have the best tight end production (maybe outside of Dallas) in the NFC. With our current offensive strategy, a big time receiver would be complaining 2 wks into the season.
The Bears still have to at least make a offer for Boldin! Draft picks are like gold in the NFL!

I agree with you on Lloyd. He was not used after the injury(typical Turner)! He is going to go elsewhere and be a steal for some team that is willing to get him the ball.

thanks tj you validated what all of us grossman supporters have been screaming about all this time .Grossman makes the Bears a much better team than Orton and he did not deserve the treatment he received but then again what QB or WR ever has as Orton soon will find out.

I am thinking it must be a gator thing that makes you so clueless about Rex.
"What I'm saying is everybody did enough for the Bears to pull off the upset except for Grossman, and, by extension, Chicago's passing game. The first 11 times the Bears' offense had the ball, it ran more than four plays only once and managed six first downs. Grossman and All-Pro center Olin Kreutz fumbled two exchanges and lost both. Grossman was what his doubters predicted he'd be: a hindrance. The maligned quarterback finished 20-for-28 -- stats padded on the Bears' final two drives when the Colts were playing soft defense. He was off target all evening. When offensive coordinator Ron Turner dialed up deep balls, Grossman's passes looked as if he'd thrown it up and was just hoping for the best.
Perhaps no Super Bowl quarterback has been dissed as much as Grossman was leading up to the game. I found myself defending him a lot this past week against accusations that he was the worst quarterback to lead a team to the Super Bowl, so I was rooting for him to prove everybody wrong. Indy had little trouble defending him Sunday, which is why he's my MVP.
The Bears converted three of 10 third-down situations Sunday and went 4-for-29 in the postseason when facing third-and-4 or longer.
During one stretch in the first half, Chicago had five straight possessions of three or fewer plays. It ran just 19 plays in the first half as opposed to Indy's 46. The Bears didn't sustain a drive longer than 2:22. No defense can be expected to hold up against an offense like Indy's when it's on the field for that length of time.
"We just never really established any kind of rhythm, running or throwing it, until it was too late," Grossman said.
The Bears won 15 games this year with Grossman at the helm. Sometimes in spite of him, yes, but I think he did enough this year to establish himself as the quarterback going into next season (a contract year, by the way). He has a lot of work to do this offseason, and the Bears can't be sure he's the long-term answer at QB. He isn't the first or last quarterback to have a bad Super Bowl, but considering how little he has to do for the Bears to win, his performance and that of the Bears' passing game goes down as one of the most inept in recent memory. Without it, the Colts don't win.
Still, as they have all season, the Bears stood up for their quarterback. "Yes, he gets too much of a bad rap," receiver Bernard Berrian said. "It's not just Grossman. It's a whole lot bigger than just Rex.
"We're not going to turn on him just because we lost this game. I mean, it's the biggest game, but that's our teammate. That's our family. Our brother. There's always going to be questions circling around that,[but] in my opinion, he should be the starter. Until someone else can beat him out, he's going to be the starter."
Dallas linebacker Chuck Howley, thanks to his two picks in Super Bowl V, holds the distinction of being the only losing player to be selected MVP. If you ask me, he should have company. The Colts are finally champions, thanks in large part to Grossman, who was more awful than Manning or any other Colt was great.
bull, you are out of your mind every body did enough to win that game?what about the so called great bears defense that gave up all that rushing yard to a rookie or that blown coverage that resulted in colts 1st td and cedric benson who did not have the guts to come back and play in the biggest game of his life.

Nope, both equaly blow. So will the Bears again in 2009 if they keep them.
