Bradshaw believes in Grossman

Terry Bradshaw, who the Bears lost out on in the 1969 draft in a pre-draft coin flip with the Steelers, visited with WMVP-AM 1000 this morning to weigh in on the retirement of Brett Favre in Green Bay.

He also touched base on Rex Grossman:

“Im a Rex Grossman fan. When hes good, hes really good. When hes bad, hes really bad. I think hes got the perfect demeanor to play in the NFL. Simply because he has a bad game, and he goes, “What, so I had a bad day, so what?” It kind of cracks me up. But I truly believe it just doesnt phase him. He drives you Bears fans nuts.

“It took me five or six years. And today’s current NFL , you would have never heard of me, I would have been gone. It took me a long time to grow up. Ive seen enough from him, to know that this guy is really good. And just put the pieces together. But I just look and say, `Give him some players around him, big-time receivers to help him out,’ and I think he could flourish, I really do.”

Grossman has yet to visit with media after he agreed to a one-year contract last month. He has returned from vacation and has been at Halas Hall but has made it clear he doesn’t want to discuss his situation right now. Grossman and Kyle Orton will compete to be the starting quarterback starting in the spring.
