Painful Loss!

If the Bears intend to find a new "title sponsor" once BankOne becomes part of Chase, they should look to BlueCross/BlueShield because their injuries just keep piling up. In their 27-22 loss to the Minnesota Vikings -- which the Bears played without an injured Brian Urlacher -- they lost quarterback Rex Grossman for the year with a torn ACL. Ouch!

Three weeks into the season, and the Bears defense already lost Jerry Azumah, Alfonso Boone, Mike Brown and Charles Tillman for all or most of the season. Brian Urlacher sitting because of his hamstring-- which caused him to miss the whole pre-season--is not a good sigh. And now the Bears lose their field general on the offensive side of the ball. The Bears will now have to rely on Jonathan Quinn at QB for the rest of the season. Unless they decide to sign one of the free agent QB's still looking for a job, like Jeff George... What do you think the should do at QB -- stick with Quinn or look for a more experienced passer?
