Grossman Ready For His Shot and McBride Looking Forward

This Saturday Rex Grossman will get his shot to start versus the Seattle Seahawks.  He may need a big outing to have a chance to pass up Kyle Orton as the Bears potential starter.  Grossman though is not putting that much pressure on himself.

"I'm just going out there to try to play my game," Grossman said. "I'm going to try to make the plays when they're there, run the offense and move the chains. They (the coaches) will make that determination I'm just going out there and try to play my best."

Grossman has done a better job of stepping up in the pocket during training camp and he seems to be moving better in general.

After a horrendous outing against the Chiefs, Trumaine McBride cannot wait to get back out there and show what he can really do.

"I basically just have to be more focused," McBride said. "I have to be aware of the little things that got me in trouble in that game."

Bears DT coach, Brick Haley's kingdom for an injury free season.

A bum left knee for Pro Bowler Tommie Harris last season and a rash of injuries at nose tackle made the Bears' front less than it should've been. While Harris soldiered through to play 16 games, Dvoracek missed 15 with a torn ACL in his left knee suffered in the opener.

His replacement, Darwin Walker, missed five games with an assortment of ailments. Anthony Adams was next, and an elbow injury cost him the final four. By the end of the year, the Bears had plucked Matt Toeaina off the Bengals' practice squad and imported two players -- Babatunde Oshinowo and Jimmy Kennedy -- off the street.
