I am a packer fan, so nothing pleases me more than seeing the bears struggle. That being said, there bears would have to be stupid not to go into camp with an open competition for the starting job.
Not having an open competition is what kept warner from signing with them last year.
It's a good question to ask if there is going to be an open competition. Bears management made it clear last year that Grossman is the main man. They demonstrated that by playing him cold in the playoffs because they had little confidence that Orton could take it to the next level.
If the Bears told Greise that he has a chance to be the starter next year, they lied to him. Grossman is still Angelo's favorite and they are going to go with him hell or high water as long as he doesn't have an incapacitating injury (ok that's a big IF and that's why they are grabbing Griese).
I think they are on the right track. IMO Grossman gives them the best chance to put consistent winning years on the table. They are going to give Rex complete assurance even in training camp that he is going to be the man. There is no competition here.
