Separated at Birth: Brian Griese and Bill Lumbergh from "Office Space"

While we're glad that Rex Grossman will be holding a clipboard for tomorrow's Bears game (and we have even money that says he'll fumble that before halftime), we're not on the "start Brian Griese" bandwagon. Sure, he's getting paid a lot of money and everyone from the Mariotti-who-cried-wolf to Joe Sixpack has been calling for Griese since the pre-season, but we're just not certain he's the hot hand the Bears need to right the proverbial ship. For the record, we think Kyle Orton should be starting.

Then we came across this wonderful little ditty from the Sports Hernia (via), showing that, with the right pair of glasses, Griese is the spitting image of Bill Lumbergh from "Office Space." Now we have even bigger reservations. Grossman could be watching the game from a desk in the Ford Field basement by the third quarter, only allowed to play his music at a respectable volume between 1:45 and 2:30 p.m. while Orton goes fishing (or pounding back Jaeger shots with the honeys).
