Enjoy Brian Griese

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.

Surely a sub-mediocre quarterback that is totally committed to the deep ball has not gone unnoticed by the watchful eyes of Al Davis.

Rex will end up a Raider... and the NFL will have to change the regulations governing the size of the field of play because a depth chart of Culpepper, Walter, JMR and Grossman scoffs at a pitiful hundred yards. (Victories too.)

"and in his first full season, he led his team to the Super Bowl"

That's an awfully liberal use of the word "led." He led the Bears to the SB like George Bush leads this country to peace and prosperity throughout the world.

This was all just a Sorgi's Mom joke? I feel taken.

As a faithful reader of THN, maybe it's time for me to figure out who Jim Sorgi is, and why I should care about his mom.

Brian Griese was 5-1 in 2005 as a starter for the Bucs before he tore his ACL. Last year, Tampa fans would have done unspeakable things to get Griese back. Instead, we were left being thankful for Tim Rattay. No one deserves that.

Well, I've done unspeakable things to Griese from the back. So we're a good fit.
