And if anyone is going to defend him on this statement, id like to talk, he is the fault for losing the superbowl..
Did Rex play defense at the Superbowl???????????????

Hey WHA, do you ever watch that show "My Boys"? I saw an episode a while back and now when I see you post, I imagine that you look like her.

Seriously, are you inspiration for that show!

I don't know if it would have mattered who was quarterback that day for the Bears, although Grossman did have a typically pathetic game.

It's cute. She has one of my dream jobs. I mean, I have to stomach all the Cub stuff but otherwise I can relate. As it turns out some guys are weirded out by girls who love sports and might know a little more than them.

For example, we were all in Denver this weekend for a bachelorette party. This guy starts chatting up my friend KJ and she tells him she's from Chicago, blah, blah, blah. He starts in on the Bears, they suck, Rex this, Rex that, the Bronco rule, yada, yada, yada. She then stops him dead in his tracks by asking him about the Broncos QB. He quickly changed the subject after figuring out she knew more than a little something about football. Good times.

Would you like to explain what you mean by "typically pathetic?" I recognize that Rex did not have a stellar game but he was not typically pathetic during the 2006 season. Yes, he had a few dreadful games but he had more good than pathetic.

And, and, and! If Cedric Benson would have strapped on a sack and played and if the defense didn't shit themselves maybe the outcome would have been different. I won't let Rex be the scapegoat for that loss. That was a team effort, my friends.

Perhaps pathetic was too strong a word, but it was still not a very good performance. You're not going to win too many games when the offense can't score that much, and the quarterback position is generally the one that makes an offense go.

His passer rating for that game was under 70, he had two picks, fumbled the ball twice (losing it once), and couldn't throw the ball downfield.

I'd say that's a poor performance and was one of the major factors why they didn't win that day.

They are still helmed by "Pick" Bulger.
They made one giant step towards a return to prominence by unloading ubergenius Mike Martz Brain Farts, but they will go nowhere until they get a clutch QB.

I guess I haven't paid much attention to Bulgers stats the past few years, I do know that he gets hurt quite a bit, but then every QB who played for Martz got hurt.

I thought last year Bulger played a pretty sound game.

Wish the season would hurry up and get here.

last year he had 24 TDs and only 8 picks, 4300 yards and a qb rating of 93, not too shabby. throw in a new big red zone target michael bennet as a 3rd reciever plus finally adding a receiving TE in McMichael, combined with a less risky, more sound system under Linehan, and Bulger is definitely gonna thrive this year.

the Rams can make some noise this year, but it all depends on how the defense holds up. apparently their first round pick DT Carriker has been a beast in training camp so far this year, so if he could help stabilize the Dline, I could see the Rams in the playoffs.

I could see the Rams in the playoffs as well, because I'm not sold on Seattle being any better than last year, despite the injuries, and the 49ers are not quite there yet.

Know nothing about this sport, can someone please tell me how my good old Benny Graham is going? And is Sav Rocca going to get on the Eagles list or will it be Johnson?

The rainy conditions had some effect on the game, IIRC. However, Manning managed to overcome them to some extent while Grossman couldn't.
