Mike Freeman from CBssports.com came to town and wondered how Rex Grossman is still in a battle to be the team's starting quarterback. Well, he wondered how Grossman is still on the roster, actually.
One point worth noting is that the Bears have not gone out and made a bold play for a passer. General manager Jerry Angelo, in seven drafts, has selected three quarterbacks.
Grossman with the second of two first-round picks in 2003.
Craig Krenzel in the fifth round in 2004.
Kyle Orton in the fourth round in 2005.
Angelo has signed veterans, a handful of them, from Brian Griese to Chris Chandler, Jonathan Quinn, Chad Hutchinson, the list goes on and on.
The point Freeman makes it the quarterback position, the boogeyman for the Bears, is not going to solve itself. At some point, you have to do something about it.
The Bears' hope, which springs eternal, is that the winner of the Grossman vs. Orton battle will more than suffice this season. If not, Angelo figures to be in the market for a quarterback. Again.
