Now I'm really worried Where is this explosive offense anchored by all these great receivers? Is the offensive line too old or complacent? Someone better rattle some cages or make some changes.

You're absolutely right !

I didn't feel comfortable with the game for even a second !

We're gonna have a lot of grey hair by the end of the season.

i really do like grossman but we cannot play like that against dallas they will kill us our defense and special teams bailed rex out once again how many more games do we have to see that rex is not improving maybe it would help him if he backed up brian or kyle for a game or two also a great qb should have crushed the chiefs anyway i will take a win anyway we can get them go bears and cubs

Another eight yards per completion; two more interceptions; finally getting first TD pass; two yards, wasn't it?

Yeah, I know, he's a great quarterback and will come around soon. Where are the apologists to discuss the 56.0 rating?

A stable of top receivers, a more than adequate rushing attack, when it isn't stymied by the fact that the passing attack is virtually non existent, and how fast are the Bears racking up points? One lousy offensive TD?

As I have stated before, I am a Bears fan, have been for decades, but this is getting to be even too much for me to take. We have a coach that refuses to be wrong, a GM that makes decisions based on personality, rather than performance and an ownership that won't hold either to justifying their actions. And, oh yes, we have to live with a quarterback that has never, repeat; NEVER, performed under pressure.

As I sit here typing this, the San Diego club that manhandled the Bears a week ago, is getting their collective heads handed to them by the Patriots.

Starting to look like a long season, unless someone can show me a glimmer of light. I would be delighted to get off Grossman's back, should that happen.

This was the perfect opportunity for the offense to show us some promise, and they failed miserably. A win is a win right? That's what Lovie said last season, and what happened? We went to the superbowl, but we lost it on turnovers. Time to wake up. Stop depending on the defense and special teams, and shake up the offense with Griese for a game. If he plays poorly, then Lovie can say he was right. If Griese plays well, then we have a chance to go to the superbowl again. It's a win win situation. Just give the guy a chance. I promise we won't miss Grossman.

Granted Benson ran better this week, but does anyone else think the guy looks like he's half-asleep out there? He gets up slowly, walks back to the huddle instead of jogging, and on that play where he dropped the ball after going down, he just sat there looking at it instead of diving on it -- even though there hadn't been a whistle. I'm beginning to think he's got a little Rashaan Salaam in him, if you catch my drift. Cough. Cough.

Benson is not the answer. Grossman is not the answer. Without the defense and special teams, this team would be nowhere.

Pitiful performance when you can't cover 12 pts., at home, against the Chiefs. Pitiful.

Tommy Harris' comments about attitude could be a foreboding of worse problems. I have made a point in the past of noting how much is being loaded onto the backs of the defense due to the ineptitude of the offense. We have already seen signs of their "pacing themselves" based on the knowledge that they will play 40 minutes plus per game. If that turn to apathy, the real problems will surface.

Devin Hester only touches the ball so many times. To base an offense on plays such as he has made over last year and so far, this, is a very wrong approach. Time for a real fix.

Go Bears!
Who cares who did what. They won. I thought Benson looked pretty tough out there. Seems like he is finding his niche.

Rex will never be able to hold onto the ball long enough for us to win a superbowel.
He has moments of greatness followed by hours of sadness.
We really need to pay for someone who can hold onto the ball and throw!

Too bad we will never see the Bears open up the big checkbook and pay for a well balanced QB with established talent.

I am officially off the, "I Back Grossman" bandwagon. He is not getting any better. What we see now is what we will see later. We need to start Griese.

I would like to see Griese or Orton in there so the problem can be revealed - TURNER. I was teaching my 10 year old yesterday how easy it is to tell what the Bears are going to do by formation and personnel. He caught on pretty good - imagine what professionals can do. Lack of creativity, formations, poor play calling - it's easy to make Grossman and Benson look bad when you can tell what they are going to do. Isn't the O-Coordinator in charge of the things going wrong? Why does the media give him a free pass?

This was a decent effort, but the O line needs to step it up a bit. Props to Bensen, I hope he quieted some of his critics!!

Grossman needs to understand how focus he needs to be this week as well as the rest of the offense because the cowboys secondary can be picked apart.Defense need to play zone and apply pressure on Romo which i kow he cant handle and get the victory

How long do you give Rex Grossman to prove himself?
He has got to step up or be replaced!

I agree with what "Ghalas" said. Ron Turner is as much to blame for the offensive woes as anybody. Is it just me, but I have never once seen Grossman (on TV) talking to anybody from upstair during the game. He just seems to stand on the sidelines staring of into space most of the time. If you look at the really good QB's around the league. They all seem to be involved in the play calling. Rex just seems to be taking orders from Turner and that's all.

Johnny Unitas once said " In order to be a successful NFL quarterback you have to be able to tell your coach to go to hell"

Rex is just too nice of guy to do that.
