Fourth Quarter

Michael Wilbon

Grossman so lacks the instincts to be a championship quarterback...He's good at some things...can get better at others...But just now, on third-and-seven, once he reverses field, he's got two blockers and plenty of space...He could have run for 20 yards and it was all in front of him...but he doesn't see things the great quarterbacks see...He's a wonderful and sincere kid and so hope he proves me wrong...but I just can't see it...The defense is going to have to force a turnover on this series to shake the Colts confidence...And Manning seems like he's calling all the right plays from the package he's being given from Tom Moore...It's hard to see him not putting at least one more touchdown on the board...

Well, it looks like Tony has succumbed to the effects of two bottles of red - take us home, Mike!!!

Posted by: quaodhoc | February 4, 2007 09:10 PM

My God. I always thought you were joking when you said he went to bed at 9:00. That is so lame.

Posted by: RedEd | February 4, 2007 09:11 PM

Nah, Tony is sulking about missing Prince....I told him to get that Tivo...

Posted by: Matt | February 4, 2007 09:11 PM

He's still awake, but not for long!

Posted by: Cindy | February 4, 2007 09:12 PM

This is turning into the shouldabowl...

Posted by: Daniel Adam Smith | February 4, 2007 09:13 PM

Tony is still posting through the comments section of his previous post (I dont know why he is doing it that way)

Posted by: Tim | February 4, 2007 09:13 PM

Cindy, is he mumbling anything though?

Posted by: Paul in WY | February 4, 2007 09:14 PM

Okay, a soldier with a stump saying "on the other hand" is a bit macabre for me.

Posted by: SMACK | February 4, 2007 09:15 PM

They just said that the Colts have a lot of plays, but do they have a 700 page playbook?

Posted by: David Vair | February 4, 2007 09:15 PM

crab commercial excellent!!

Posted by: Joe Hellner | February 4, 2007 09:16 PM

The Bears defense is doing absolutely everything it could be asked to do...

Posted by: Daniel Adam Smith | February 4, 2007 09:16 PM

BUT....despite how badly the Bears (or Grossman) has played.....the score is still close.

Posted by: Lisa | February 4, 2007 09:17 PM

The Bears D is keeping them in this. Can Grossman do anything to help out his D?

Posted by: Paul | February 4, 2007 09:19 PM

Wow, nice catch by Muhammad.

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 09:21 PM

Well, there was a little pass help, then Rex got greedy. There's the pic and six, Tony.

Crud!

Posted by: Jerry | February 4, 2007 09:21 PM

The Colts are playing like they have never been to a Super Bowl. I have to believe that if the Patriots were playing, they would have taken advantage of the red zone opportunities.

Posted by: David | February 4, 2007 09:22 PM

Oops, that wasn't exactly what Rexy wanted.

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 09:22 PM

The lights go out in Chicago

Posted by: Tom M | February 4, 2007 09:22 PM

Sorry, Mike, we have some lovely parting gifts for you - Grossman just proved to be too inexperienced.

Posted by: quaodhoc | February 4, 2007 09:22 PM

Well, it was nice to see history made. The last interception ended the game. I'm going to get ice cream now.

Posted by: merzydoats | February 4, 2007 09:22 PM

that may be it for Chicago

Posted by: G&S | February 4, 2007 09:22 PM

I want ice cream! I want ice cream!

Posted by: Matt | February 4, 2007 09:23 PM

Is it time to bring Griese in?

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 09:23 PM

A the fat lady sings....

Posted by: That's all she wrote.... | February 4, 2007 09:23 PM

Why wasn't Rex running at full speed to catch up to the interceptor?

Posted by: David | February 4, 2007 09:24 PM

Grossman throws a pick for 6. Nice call Mike!

Posted by: Paul | February 4, 2007 09:24 PM

MW - yep you are right grossman stinks - oops I see Grossman just had his "signature moment"

Posted by: Joe Hellner | February 4, 2007 09:25 PM

And done!

Posted by: Grossman - Game Over, USA | February 4, 2007 09:25 PM

That's really gross.....man

Posted by: daniel Adam Smith | February 4, 2007 09:26 PM

Rex doing his Neil O'Donnell imperssination.

Posted by: David Vair | February 4, 2007 09:26 PM

The Bud commercials are as bad as the Bears offense!

Sorry, that should have been "there's the pic and six, Mike"! earlier

Posted by: Jerry | February 4, 2007 09:28 PM

If anyone needs some weed call me. Aaron Church from Alexandria.

Posted by: aaron church | February 4, 2007 09:28 PM

Mmmmm...dutch chocolate ice cream. My husband keeps trying to cheer me up. Should I just smack him with a spoon of chocolate?

Posted by: merzydoats | February 4, 2007 09:28 PM

Chicago (Kickoff Return TD to start game) is playing a lot like Ohio State did in the National Championship Game.

Posted by: David | February 4, 2007 09:29 PM

I think Wilbon got mad and slammed his laptop....

Posted by: Matt | February 4, 2007 09:30 PM

That's it

Posted by: over | February 4, 2007 09:30 PM

I predict a Bear's victory even with that 2nd consecutive interception

Posted by: Larry | February 4, 2007 09:31 PM

this is pathetic....Grossman looks like a rec league QB....

Posted by: AJ | February 4, 2007 09:31 PM

Nice call, David. Odd that the two championship games have so much in similar.

Posted by: Paul in WY | February 4, 2007 09:31 PM

In the immortal words of Don Meridith - "Turn out the lights, the party's over"

Posted by: quaodhoc | February 4, 2007 09:31 PM

That last INT looked like a pop fly into center field.

Posted by: Phil | February 4, 2007 09:31 PM

that's even grosser....man!

Posted by: daniel Adam Smith | February 4, 2007 09:32 PM

Man Grossman is piling up "signature moments" - he will be a lock for the HOF someday

Posted by: Joe Hellner | February 4, 2007 09:32 PM

Grossman has proven me right. I said I would never put anything on him being a winner. I could not do it.
