But since the Bears running game is so much crap right now, the coaches should pull a Martz and just let Grossman air it out. Abandon the run take advantage of Grossman's connection with Berrian.
Not sure how well this could work, but the results either way should be extreme. Either total flameout or "Rexy for MVP." Could be fun to watch either way.
When the Bears went down last night aginst the Cowboys, that's what the Bears tried to do.
Air it out.
Looked what happened.
This guy Grossman just plain out sucks. He forces balls into double triple coverage, and when he does air it out, he's not that accurate. At all.
It's a bit different when a team starts to air it out in the 4th quarter trying to cut down a big lead, when everyone knows you're trying to play catch-up. If the Bears let Grossman go all pass-happy from the start of a game, defenses aren't going to be in pass prevent the whole time. Anyways, I still think it would be interesting to see.
But I wouldn't say Grossman flat out sucks. The reason he's held onto his job this long and continues to aggravate the hell out of Bears fans is because we know he can be accurate and good. We know because we've seen it last year. Grossman is just a huge tease, but his end is nearing, thankfully.
The cake is a lie.
