    We'd be screwed, either way, but damnit if Rex doesn't make a game interesting.


    EDIT: I did NOT forget the name of our backup, I don't care what his name is.

    Oh no, I'm not going to let this slide at all. Anybody remember Kordell Stewart? Anybody remember Kreutz snapping the ball OVER HIS HEAD in a shotgun formation when the Bears were stomped by the 49ers in 2003? What about the botched snaps with every single quarterback, including Jay Cutler, since then?

    Kreutz was great, but absolutely sucked at snapping the ball, you won't get many Bears fans to admit that; kind of like how Walter Payton was one of the all time greats, but was one of the sloppiest, when it came to fumbling.

    Rex would obviously give you a better chance to open up the O and set out to win games. He also probably has a much a better chance of doing something stupid to straight up lose games offensively.

    We're not talking about some ****** scrub. This is Rex Grossman we’re talking about here. We’re talking 210 lbs. of twisted steel and sex appeal.

    While we're talking about backup QBs, given we are only taking two into a game. Who is your pick to play QB if both cutler and McCown go down in the same game?

    Realistically, or can i pick a 3rd or 2nd stringer from the league?

    Realistically, Trent Edwards, I still think he's a smarter player than Palmer

    Who I would WANT, Kyle Orton. If "they are who we think they are", this is the offense that would have best suited him.

    Then Rex, because, despite being turnover prone, he can still wing it and, after having read a washington redskins article on him, the guy has his confidence back, and honestly, I think a warm reception back in Chicago would work wonders. It wouldn't make him starter quality, but good emergency QB quality.

    C. Forte, both of those options are HORRIBLE. Bring in Forte and run the Wildcat.

    Rex got beat out by 2 rookies, when he was in Hou he got flat outplayed by a developmental late round pick that was supposed to sit on the bench for awhile. Rex is the definition of turrible. McClown, he honestly played worse then anyone they had behind him. Blanchard played better then him, and so did Palmer and Edwards. He must be real good on his knees to have kept his job.
