    Rex Grossman Is Why Kyle Boller Should Not Start



    Looking at Rex Grossman fumble and bumble around makes me think of Kyle Boller. For every one good/great pass there are five or six piss poor passes.

    Yeah, you'll say "well Grossman was good enough to get the Bears to the Super Bowl." So what? With the great defense and great special teams, I could have QB the Bears to the Super Bowl. Grossman, however, lacks that intelligence to take the Bears all the way. I guarantee that the Bears don't sniff the playoffs next year.

    Getting back to Boller, you want to know why Boller is not the answer? In addition to looking at the many Boller specials over the past four seasons, look at Boller's brother, Rex Grossman.
    It's a new season! It's a new day!

    Yeah, but Grossman takes shots down the field. Grossman makes the Bears a more "explosive" offense.
    Season over, guess I'll have to start drinking beer again...

    When? The guy had game passing for as low as 36 yards. The Bears were explosive because of a defense that can score and a strong return man that could get 7 with a touch of the ball. The Bears offense was not as explosive this season as it appeared. This game shows that.

    What does Grossman have to do with Boller? Any reason to take a shot at Kyle I guess?!?! I didn't here you say we should start Boller after watching a young Roethlisburger win the Super Bowl? What's the difference?
    The Steelers: Still looking for a legit Super Bowl victory.

    Boller is better than Grossman.

    This is foolish. Boller was never inconsistent like Grossman. Boller just has come on of late, he has never regressed. Grossman has been good and bad, good and bad......

So how in the hell is that not inconsistent or regressing?

    Grossman and Boller are two friggin peas in pod.
    One game is not called regressing. Every qb has bad games (even Steve McNair - see playoff game aganst the Colts- much worse than Boller in Cleveland BTW). The Browns game was not atrocious either. Factoring in the following preseason and two games that he played in the regular season you have to wonder why the only thing you can focus is on his one bad game in that stretch?
    That is not called inconsistant.

Gimme a break that has to be the most ludicrous thing I have ever read on any forum right up there with Boller would have been a better choice to QB the Ravens this past season than McNair against the Colts!!!
    So what is it that you are saying, Boller is extremely consistent! Since the Eiffel tower IS NOT tilted I assume you mean the opposite of your statement. Or is it that you just don't know what you're talking about!

    See I think this is the thing.


    The hater will never just look at the stats for Kyle's last 10-12 games because he has a QB rating of about 100 and way more TDs than INT, and quite a few games with 3 TDs and 300 yards.


    They want to look back to '04 when he was throwing to 1) NOT Todd Heap 2) Travesty Taylor 3) Kevin Johnson? 4) Aligator Arms Clarence Moore


    And the o-line by far was shittier then. We lacked a RT and RG


    But in any case, there is a lot to be said for Boller's progress. I think the extension of a contract to Boller or not extending it will come down to exactly what Newsome says it will come down to: how much more we see of Kyle.


    What is his preseason play like next year? And, what is his play like in relief of McNair for injury reasons?


    If the 2nd half of last season AND this season is any indicator, Kyle will continue to come in and be efficient with QB ratings around 100


    And at that point the FO will be hard pressed to think it can draft a rookie who will do better. They will also be hard pressed to decide to give up on the investment, just to watch him go somewhere like, say, carolina with a Steve Smith and rip shit up.


    Thats just my .02 cents.


    Then again, I'm a Boller fan and I know that. Feel free to flame away.

    Kyle Boller had quite a few games with 300 yds? You mind showing me the boxscore to those games?

    The Cincy game, after down being down 34-0, throwing 2 picks, and fumbling 3 times, he tossed some TDs. Sorry if that game doesn't exactly drum up support from me.

    After that game he had a horrid game at Denver, 2 very nice games vs Min and GB and then another horrid game at Cleveland.

    That is exactly why we went out and got McNair.

    Say what? The 2nd half of last season he had ratings of 30.1, 67.2, 81.6, 70.0, 65.2, 136.8, 113.5, 31.1.

    This year, in basically 2 games, his rating was 97 and 112.8. He played better than he had. We can argue the tipped balls in the Carolina game until we're blue in the face.

    You think he can come in a just throw up 100 rating games whenever he wants? How about on the road?

    Look, I like Boller as a backup. He did exactly what we needed him to do this season.

    That's it.

    Edit: I'd take Boller over Grossman.
