Once again this organization settles for nothing but 2nd and 3rd stringers and people at halas hall wonder why we've only won one super bowl.

I know, what the heck is this? This guy is not an answer. We should look at getting Vick.

Uhh, Tom Brady and Matt Cassell were once 2nd/3rd stringers.
Not saying that Brett is the answer, but his college career stats aren't that far off from another former B10 QB who is doing pretty well in the NFL - Drew Brees.

Does this mean if the Bears do draft a qb it's going to be in the lower depths of the draft? I was hoping a qb would be drafted in one of the first 3 rounds but it looks like that idea has just been shotgunned to death.

What else or should I say who else should we have signed??? Unless we are paying for it, then we just have to accept it? Yes? No?
Next, Grossman to play for whom ever and go to the superbowl and win it? Who would have thought?? Ha ha ha....
No hard feeling Rex, dont forget, my youngest was almost named after you...Look at it this way, you took the Bears to the superbowl, and for awhile, you ruled, you were on top of the world.....You should come to alaska for a winter....

He will join the ranks of such luminaries as Craig Krenzel, Will Furere and Peter Todd Willis. The tradition continues!

Lets a see if he can do it, Don't forget 4 other teams wanted him!and the funny thing is his name is Brett!!!! someone with that name kicked or butts for 10 yrs.

Now we've got a big time qb to throw to Rashied and Hester. Woo hoo!

Can we at least get a defense to get excited about?

I bet every team will be shaking in their boots if we get a stud like Chris Sims...

Either rebuild or take a real shot!

why do u WRECKS lovers keep saying that he took the team to the superbowl. he had VERY LITTLE to do with the superbowl season except drop balls and throw interceptions and run like a scared little boy when he was pressured. The defense got us to the superbowl. WAKE UP
