27 posts in this topic

Was it just me or did anyone else see the similarities between Grossman and Favre again last night? laugh.gif

Where is Madden when you need him?

I bet Grossman would love to be a superbowl champ, 3 time MVP and on top or near the top in just about all the QB records. grin.gif

It didn't just start last night. Grossman throws into double coverage on a continuous basis. Up until recently the Bears receivers came down with the ball. The Cards have a few good DBs and it was a different story. Grossman looked like one of the greatest QBs of all time for a month. Farve does that too for a few weeks. Then he throws four picks the next week.

Alrighty then, who'd we rather have QB for this Bears team .... a young-Rex or an OTH-Brett?

i am feeling you dude. i dont care what anyone says Favre is a STUD. to still be able to throw for 3,000 yrds a season is very good for how old he is. we will see him back next year to take out a few of Marino's records grin.gif

Kind of funny I just had lunch with my brother and we talked about the superbowl and he said "Grossman is kind of like what Favre has become, he just kind of throws it up whereever and sees what happens...". Of course this was due to Favre having no players and diminishing skills and Grossman just being rotten!

i think grossman will learn to be a good one, like favre.

i was looking at his numbers, and he really didn't have too bad a game. one dumb throw and one that was underthown. other than that he was 20-28(manning 25-38) i think that lovie deserves some credit for the loss. thomas had like 115 with less than 20 carries. perhaps if he had 10 or so more touches, who knows cool.gif

i thought he looked horrible. He was not in control of the game at all.

lets not forget that the colts took mcnair and brady(for a half) out of the game. i'm just saying his numbers wern't that bad, not a ton of yards but good completion rate. i still think they should have run the ball a little more. don't get mr wrong, i was going for the colts, just think people need to back off grossman a bit.

i understand where your coming from. Fact of the matter is, they didnt win, but they stuck around and had a shot to win it at the end of the game

Grossman doesnt control the game at all... He need to do more studying for the game!!! When you tell the press that you didnt really do you homework for a game that tell me right there he doesnt really know what to do!!!! He is the leader of the team and need to know everying on the O starts with him!!! My .02

Bottom line and the Bears need to realize this fact! The sooner they get a good QB in their, the closer they will get to a SB ring! The more time they take getting in a better player at that position is time wasted away.. you can bet they will be having other teams overpay for some of their defensive players and soon! It's only a matter of time until they have missed that window of opportunity and they know it and so do Rex's teammates! TICK TOCK!!!

Any thoughts guys?

His QB rating was 28th in the league for anyone who played at least 8 games. He was 3rd in interceptions. He was the reason they lost the games they did lose. Give the Bears a decent QB and they don't lose a game all year (unless they still mail in the GB game at the end, including the SB.

Exactly what I asked my partner here at the office and my brother, "if they had a good QB, how could you beat them?" They have an awesome defense, they have good recievers and running backs and an OK line. The special teams play was unbelievable. Really the ONE glaring weakness of this team is Rex. Put a real good QB in there and I really want to know how anyone thinks they could beat them???

I think there is too strong a sentiment about how bad Rex is. He is definitely either end of the spectrum though, so he needs to show more consistency. I think that will come with experience for him. For any old-timers, if you remember some of the real "great" Bear QB's of old (ala Jack Concannon, Larry Rakestraw, Bobby Douglas and on and on), then in comparison I think Rex is more likely to improve if he continues to play alot. Having said that, and remembering this is a team game, he really needs a good Oline and good receivers if that is gonna happen though.

I say lay off Rex. So he didn't win the big one? He got them there, didn't he? Now, if he keeps up the terrible to good to terrible to good string early next year, then I agree they have to consider other QB options.

Geno my friend, I have to totally disagree, HE DIDN'T get them there... his Defense and special teams carried him there. To say "he got them there" implies that HE was the man making all the winning difference making plays... he definitely was NOT this guy! Are you just saying that to get a response? Did I take the bait AGAIN? wink.gif

No Buzz, I didn't mean HE was the ONLY guy that got them there. You are correct about the "team" which is why I mentioned the Oline and receivers......I think we are meaning the same thing saying it two diff ways.

I guess the main thing I think is that he has the potential to improve so giving up on him now is too early IMO. Of course, should Favre become available to the Bears......and several others too, then they should consider improving the player at that very important position.

To me, "team" is the reason they got there. That and that ol' horseshoee. Nyuk, nyuk.

Buzz,

I think the appropriate statement would be that the Bears got there inspite of him. When he was good, he was really good but when he was bad it was el stinko. I think he tied Manning for number of games with a 100+ QB rating. But he was the QB and they did get to the dance so I guess he has to get his props.

Hes kinda like him, but in the same aspect, grossman is a person that can handle the game very very well. The best part about him is when he was in the perfect football mood, where he was running the games, and holding the team together, he was great. But down the line through the year, the man feel apart, and you could see it, just as well as i could, that the team was not the same when he was playing bad.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      no doubt aboit the hooks, they are lottle stickers.
    • DLD24
      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.
    • DLD24
      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips
    • Perchy
      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish 
    • LBerquist
      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
