Starting QB revealed by week 3?

August 5th, 2008 - 10:10 am

Did the Bears coaching staff inform quarterbacks Rex Grossman and Kyle Orton when they’d name the starter?

David Haugh reports on that Rex Grossman said the following in an interview:

“This is obviously a competition, so you want to play your best and put your best foot forward in these two preseason games … three … however many,” Grossman said. “I don’t know when the final verdict comes in.”

As Haugh suggests, it may have been a simple mistake, then again, it could have been that Grossman accidentally slipped information that the starter will be revealed before the third preseason game against San Francisco.
