A quarterback switch makes sense if, say, you have a quality backup on your bench – like the Kurt Warner Machine. A quarterback switch doesn’t make sense when your backup is Brian Griese – failure at every stop. Even the quarterback happy Buccaneers didn’t want to keep Griese around.
And don’t take this as an endorsement for Rex Grossman. He has been so horrible, that if you went to Sportsline and looked up quarterbacks based on passer rating, Grossman isn’t even on the first page. The only thing is, Grossman is in only his second full season as a starter and in his first full season, he led his team to the Super Bowl. To replace him with a journeyman who, in truth, isn’t that much better than Grossman, well you really have to question that move. If you are going to trade Thomas Jones to make room for Cedric Benson (who has that worked out?), you might as well stick with Grossman.
But you know who is really pissed about this move? Jim Sorgi’s Mom. In fact, you probably don’t want to talk to her right now. Really.
