Re: Grossman finally benched
Maybe Griese isn't going to be the league MVP this year, but what is unescapable is that he will bring stability on one side of the ball.
Chicago ST and D are both very good units, but they are being left with too much to do with Grossmans continual game losing performances.
Griese may be a 'game manager' but I think he gives the guys on his team a chance to make plays and beat up on the rest of the NFC.
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
