More likely it was due to being drunk.
The fact remains that he had nagging injuries that prevented him from become better.
For a platoon player in college to a pro-bowl, I would think it wasn't bad at all.
He was not a platoon player. Moreover, he had the profile and legacy of a game manager. If Griese were available in the draft next year, I would have no doubt we would draft him.
Nagging injuries for Griese, and Kubiak/Smith did not see it coming with Schaub?
