Poor Rex...

Some people are saying Rex Grossman should have been the SuperBowl MVP because he was the best player for the Colts!

Obviously I'm not a Bears fan, but I don't want to jump on Rex that bad. Here is an interesting observation from Dave Willis' blog...

I'm no Grossman fan but please...

If you've heard or seen any coverage of the recent Super Bowl you know Rex Grossman has been villified once again. His is supposedly the worst performance by any QB in Super Bowl history! Sure he wasn't great and he did give up a costly fumble, but the worst ever? I found some interesting info I'd like to share.

Consider the performance of some other Super Bowl QB's:

Super Bowl 24: John Elway was 10 of 26 for 108 yards, 0 TDs and 2 INTs. Elway is practically deified these days.

Super Bowl 27: The Bills duo of Reich and Kelly were 22 of 38 for 276 yards, 1 TD, 4 INT. Hmmm...

Super Bowl 34: McNair threw for just over 200 yards, but had no TDs and no INTs. This is from "Air" McNair!

Super Bowl 35: Kerry Collins went 15 of 39 for 112 yards, 0 TDs, and 4 INT. That is worse than Grossman.

Super Bowl 39: McNabb threw for almost 400 yards and 3 TD, but he also threw 3 INT. I know Rush got in trouble but 3 picks from Donovan?

Grossman was 20/28 for 165 yards, 1 TD 2 INT in the rain!

Or how about the other QB's who face these same Colts in the playoffs...
Trent Green -- 14-24 107yds 1TD 1INT 2 fumbles 1 lost
Steve NcNair -- 18-29 173yds 0TD 2INT 1 fumble 1 lost
Tom Brady -- 21-34 232yds 1TD 1INT 1 fumble 0 lost
Grossman -- 20-28 165yds 1TD 2INT 2 fumbles 1 lost in the rain!

They are out to get Rex. He must be a member of the NRA or something!
