Worst Bears Draft Picks of All-Time: QB Rex Grossman

In 2003, just like most every other year in the last 30, the Chicago Bears needed a QB.  Still on the draft board at pick #22 in the 2003 NFL Draft was a cannon-armed prospect named Rex Grossman, who was coming of an impressive two-year run at the University of Florida.

However, Grossman's tenure in Chicago was one of the most-memorable in recent history, and (mostly) for the wrong reasons.  His one claim to fame while wearing the Navy and Orange was obviously the 2006 season, when he QB'd the Bears to the Super Bowl to challenge the Colts.

Now, I'm not necessarily considering Grossman one of the all-time draft busts in franchise history, but a case can be made that he could be considered.  

In his first three seasons with the Bears (2003-05), Grossman started a grand total of seven games, threw for just over 1,300 yards, with 4 TDs and 6 INTs.  Then came the Super Bowl season (2006), followed by two more seasons of infamy.  In 2007 and 2008, Grossman started only 8 games, and he was not re-signed after becoming a free agent in 2009.

Question for you all: Does Grossman deserve to be included in the group of all-time worst Bears draft picks?
