That was, in all likelihood, the worst Super Bowl I have ever seen. It was good seeing Peyton Manning finally win the big one, but it was terrible watching how it happened. I realize that most of the blame can be placed on the weather, which caused turnover after turnover, but some of that blame can also be placed on Rex Grossman.
Grossman outplayed Manning in the first half and then seemingly threw himself off a cliff. Watching Grossman in the second half was a study in pain and confusion, with me spending half the time wondering just how in the world that man got a job as an NFL quarterback in the first place, much less took that team to the Super Bowl. Grossman made several throws that local high school quarterbacks here in Katy wouldn’t make, and he’s probably out of a job after that horrid performance.
The good news about Grossman’s horrible performance is that the Bears are seemingly interested in David Carr. I’d actually be glad to have Grossman over Carr, because I think Rex might be able to learn a thing or two from the game yesterday and become a better player. I’m thinking that deal won’t happen, though, because David Carr wants to go to Minnesota and Jake Plummer is destined to be a Houston Texan.
