Enzo says there is no Quarterback Controversy in Chicago. Enzo; pull the Italian Snausages outa your ears!!!! There is a QB Controversy. And Griese and Orton smell the blood in the water.

Which brings me to #3 of my pre-season football pick.

49ers at Bears (-6)

Week 3 of the pre-season is typically the closest to a regular season game as coaches tend to give their starting squads the most amount of work. This Saturday, Chicago faces the NFC gutter dwelling San Francisco 49ers. Despite how bad the Bears first team looked in Indianapolis last Monday, we should put things in perspective and remember that they were playing the Colts. The 49ers have not looked good since Montana and I don't expect much of an improvement this year.

What I do expect is for Grossman to step up in a big way at Soldier Field. Chicago Fans and Sport Radio are merciless and if he fails to have a big game the calls for Griese to be the number one guy will be unrelenting. Lovie Smith is loyal, but, he is not G.W. Bush loyal.....there is a level of failure he will not continue to reward.

Griese and Orton know that given Grossmans inconsistency they both have a legitimate shot at the starting position; Griese more so than Orton. They need to take advantage of any snaps under center, and in this writers view, they both did that at Indianapolis Monday Night. The Chorus of calls for Grossman to be replaced will only increase if manages to continue to fumble and turn over the ball.

I like the Bears with home field advantage. The Quarterback competition is high and all three of these more than qualified potential starter has the ability to move the ball and put points on the scoreboard. Lay the six and play the Bears.

On a side note. I will be in the Windy City this weekend for a wedding. The last time I was in Chicago for a wedding was the same weekend that Grossman broke his leg in the pre-season. The crowd seemed devasted back then.

Robnosticator's Pick: Bears -6 (1 Pierogi)
