Lovie Smith admitted he had made a decision on who his starting QB would be this week on Monday, and encouraged those interested to show up for practice Wednesday to find out.
His secret didn't make it that long, and it comes as no surprise that Rex Grossman has lost his starting job and will be replaced by Brian Griese Sunday at Detroit.
Grossman's string of 19 consecutive regular-season starts will come to an end and the Bears' QB turnstile will click once again. Griese's start will make the 31st change in starting QB's for the franchise in the last 127 regular-season games. That's a change every 4.1 games for those without a calculator handy.
