Bears quarterback Rex Grossman has apparently lost his starting job to Brian Griese. The Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, NFL.com, and the official Rex Grossman Sucks Blog are all citing anonymous sources within the team
After Rex-N-Effect effectively killed any chance of a comeback Sunday night with three interceptions, head coach Lovie Smith showed him little love.
"Will Rex Grossman start Sunday?" he rhetorically asked. "Well, our evaluation process is going on right now, and if you come out to practice Wednesday, you'll have a better idea of who will be starting at all positions."
Well, Wednesday apparently came a little early this week.
It's far too easy to pin all of the Bears' offensive struggles this season on Grossman, as Cedric Benson (3.2 yards per carry) and the offensive line have thus far failed to give him any relief. Rex's pocket has been wrecked more than all but four other quarterbacks (he's been sacked 9 times), and the team's rushing attack--once its bread and butter--is only averaging 87.3 yards per game.
That said, the Packers are running dead last in the league at 57.0 yards per game and they're still 3-0, so it's entirely possible that the Bears just still suck.
