      rumor is that it's for 2009 draft, so nothing to care about right now...but I'm glad we got someone to give us a draft pick for him

        It's a really bad move to get rid of him, he was our best QB last year, and is a much more consistent backup then Grossman.

        Besides he could actually have tought Orton and whoever we bring in a thing or two.
        I don't want Grossman to try to teach anyone anything.
        Resigning Grossman was sooo stupid.
        He will probably look great in practice when he dosen't have to worry about getting hit and get a chance to start, and I don't even want to think about what that means.

            I really like Griese as a person, his charity work and all that.

            That said, he threw WAY too many interceptions last year. Too risky, too old, blah blah.

            I said in the other thread that I was amazed we got something for him, even if it's a 7th rounder in 2009.

            Best o' luck Brian.

              while Griese was better than Grossman, one can prolly argue that Orton was obviously our best QB...I don't necessary agree that resigning Grossman was stupid considering he still has a lot of upside and it's only a 1 year deal...the whole providing knowledge to Orton is pretty useless considering Orton has 2 years, 1 of which being a full season essentially, and the other he spent "learning" from Griese, so I don't really know how much more Griese could provide...if we bring in a rookie it will be on the first day most likely, and we expect him to compete right away...after this year, depending how Orton/Rexy do, one will be leaving and we will prolly bring in a vet QB who can then mentor the rookie...so, I don't really have any problems with this move

                  im surprised we found a trade partner. all tampa would have had to do was wait a little bit longer for us to cut him before his bonus was due....

                  oh well, a free late round pick. ill take it

                    This pretty much gaurentees that we will be drafting a quarterback. I just hope its not a day one pick since we have many other pressing needs.

                        Even that is in question as Griese isn't guaranteed a spot either. I am speculating that the Bucs are going to draft a QB first day this year, and that would mean Griese would have to battle it out with Simms (can he still even play?) and McCown (he actually did surprisingly well last season) for the backup spot to Garcia.

                        However, I believe Griese is the better of the 3, and with his experience in Chucky's offense already, I think he has a good shot at making the team.

                            We have pressing needs, but we also need to keep the future in mind. Unless Orton or Grossman really establish themselves, we are once again left with the quarterback issue. It's unlikely we're going to answer that question past the 2nd, maybe 3rd round, so I think it has to come with at the very least our late 3rd.

                              I personally can't see that Grossman has any upside left. To me he's damaged goods and resigning him was a case of our FO and coaches not learning when to let go.
                              Sure he has a strong arm, but he looks scared out there, he's an injury waiting to happen, and he fails to step up into the pocket almost all the time.
                              I think it's time to give up and move on.
                              Now we won't and that's just sad.

                              You could easily make the case that Orton was our best QB last year, and I think he deserves every chance to start this year. However I believe we need a good backup QB, and Griese would fill that roll alot better than Grossman.

                              Getting a pick out of him was a good thing though.
