After watching first Jake Delhomme and now Rex Grossman in preseason games, I feel at least 13 percent about the Birds in the NFC. Their ineptitude has a chance to cripple two decently strong teams/ potential rivals for the Birds in the NFC.
And that is totally sweet.
Delhomme looked worse than the night last December when his overwhelming desire to commit silly turnovers jumpstarted the Eagles' run to the playoffs, and Grossman couldn't really handle the exchange from center.
At least the Panthers did something about the problem in the offseason by bringing in David Carr; the Bears continue to stand by the Sex Cannon. What can the other players think at this point? Grossman is edging into Chuck Knoblauch territory -- he just looks crushed out there. Yikes. And, from the sound of it, this isn't lost on the Chicago fans, who realize that this dude is going to clown the chances of their otherwise strong team. Oh well!
(This is all great for the Birds. Even if 5 isn't in there, I still think the Eagles will get more consistency from the QB position than these two teams. Good for us.)
