    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.
