A sucker is born every day.... Seesh they could have "Mr. Mittens" in the middle of May for the minimum once Carolina cuts him...

Bears sign QB Grossman to 1 Year deal...

CHICAGO (AP)—Quarterback Rex Grossman signed a one-year contract Saturday with the Chicago Bears and will compete for the starting job.

Grossman, a 2003 first-round draft pick, started the Super Bowl for the Bears after an up-and-down season in 2006. He struggled again last year and was benched following the third game. He returned for five more games before injuring his left knee in early December.

Grossman passed for 913 yards with three touchdowns and one interception for an 80.2 passer rating when he returned. In the first three games, his 45.2 rating with one TD and six interceptions contributed to the Bears’ 1-2 start.

“Rex has won a lot of football games for us around here,” coach Lovie Smith said. “You look at how he played at the end of the football season until he came up with that injury, he is playing good football.”

Grossman has started 30 games with 489 completions in 900 attempts (54.3 percent) for 5,907 yards with 31 touchdowns and 33 interceptions. His career passer rating is 70.9.

Grossman will have to compete for the starting job with Kyle Orton, possibly Brian Griese and another quarterback drafted or signed in free agency.

When Kyle Orton is better for your franchise in the long run than your starting Quarterback, You need a new Starting Quarterback

So after they fire Lovie Smith this year do you think he would be a good fit for our defensive coaching staff?

Carr doesn't hold a candle to Grossman. One day some people will realize that Carr was the problem and not the team around him. Grossman aint great but he is a tenfold better QB than Mr. Mittens. Carr sucks the purple heater.
