Today’s practice ended and Rex Grossman final addressed the media.
He has waited to talk since losing the starting QB job to Kyle Orton.
Rex said “You just have to deal with it, There’s no other option.”
Rex also said “I was a little surprised but I’ve had some time to digest it and I’ll be ready to go.”
This is first time in Rex’s career that he will be on the bench as the backup QB.
Rex was always perceived as great potential as a QB, even when he was on the injured reserve, with all his injuries.
Rex was asked if he would have liked to sign with a different now that he is not the starter.
His response was “My mind set hasn’t changed. Just my role from everyone else’s standpoint has changed and that’s taken a little bit of time to get over. I’ll never fully get over it and I don’t think anyone would expect me to. My motivation is to be a great player in this league and a starter again but for right now I’ve got to be the best quarterback and ready at a moment’s notice.’’
Rex resigned with the Bears in February on a one year deal, who knows if he will be back next season.
I would love to see him back next year, and maybe he will get his shot again this year.
We all know that offensive line won’t hold up for Kyle Orton, so he might get hurt, so Rex you better be ready.
Rex has the knack to make the big play, while Kyle has the knack to make the right play and that’s why Chicago Bear fans prefer Kyle Orton.
