Nope... he's not real. It's been a hologram these past two weeks.

worth a gamble if u got a roster spot.

But seeing as hes played two horrible defenses, noone knows for sure. Good thing is is that he gets to play them both again.

He looked very impressive yesterday, but I would still give him another week or two to prove himself a little more. Its funny though, that after this week people are saying he played "two bad defenses". Yet these are the same people who were touting the detroit defense last week saying how great and underrated they are.

You mean that same "horrible" defense that held Shaun Alexander to 50 yards with 0 td's, and in fact held the entire Seattle team to just barely winning the game. A last year Superbowl contender. LOL. Cmon now.

Play Grossman if you got him. He's the real deal.

if you watched the game against the lions you should be convinced, on several plays he hung in the pocket and made a good pass, to move the chains, picking up first downs; i would play him if i didnt have any of the other qbs that are lighting it up. He a definite start ove Jake Plummer, M Bulger, S McNair D Culpepper....IMO

i think that says more about the seahawks. Based on more than just one week, the lions have a very week defense. Alexander didnt do insanely well against the cardinals, who they usually destroy.

hasselbeck didnt even do that well except for the big plays to darrell jackson.

I'm a Bears homer however that means I've seen Grossman's entire career.

Positives:

Great arm. Able to throw good looking long passes. Hits his receivers in stride most of the time. Not afraid to stay in the pocket even though he's been hurt before. Somewhat mobile.

Negatives:

Injury prone. 2 major injuries in his short career. Sometimes makes bad decisions on where to throw the ball. For instance, he threw into triple coverage in the end zone instead of throwing the ball away against GB.

Bottom line:

As long as he can stay healthy and pays attention to what defenses are doing, he can become one of the better QBs in the league. Keep in mind he's only been around a few years and most of that time was spent recovering from injuries. He's very young, has a rocket arm and will only get better [provided he is able to stay healthy and stay on the field].
Go Bears!
