Well...sorta. It is more like an experiment. The Bears will enter into this Sunday's game versus Detroit with a new man at the helm, journeyman Brian Griese.
Not many believe he can be the answer for the Bears sputtering offense, but perhaps he can avoid some of the errors Rex Grossman has made and perhaps the offense will be more behind him. The hope is he will be a decent enough band aid to get us back in the hunt and hold down the ship until our next future ex-franchise QB can be found.
As you can see Griese's numbers are not spectacular, with exception of his 2000 season, but they are better than Rex Grossman's and that is probably all the coaches are looking for.
Griese comes in at the worst possible time. The offense is broke and the defense is completely banged up, but with the chance to get in the game again, I doubt he minds.
Here is to hoping.
