Griese comes to town

Finally, something is happening.  Formerly of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, QB Brian Griese is scheduled to visit Halas Hall as early as the end of this weekend.  Other teams that are Minnesota, Cinncinati, Baltimore and TB is still looking to resign him.


Some members of the Bears' organization clamored for Brian Griese three years ago.

They might get their man this time. Griese, a former starting quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Denver Broncos, is scheduled to visit Halas Hall, perhaps as soon as the end of the weekend. If he signs with the Bears, Griese would begin as the No. 2 quarterback behind Rex Grossman but eventually might push him for the starting job.

The thing I don't understand is why more QBs won't come to Chicago.  You are backing up a guy who hasn't been able to stay on the field for three straight years.  There is a very high chance you get to start at some point.  If Rex goes down one more time for the season, Chicago brass have to reconsider him and his role with the team.
