Originally posted by Super Shane SpearThe decision comes three days after the Ravens opted against picking up the $6 million bonus on Grbac's contract, making the Super Bowl-winning quarterback an unrestricted free agent.
Grbac threw one (incomplete) pass after MVP Steve Young had thrown six touchdowns and put Super Bowl XXIX *way* out of reach for the Chargers.
So...how can Grbac be considered a "Super Bowl-winning quarterback"? Just because he was there to throw a single pass as a third-string quarterback for the winning team in a blowout game?

i don't believe this will be a permanent retirement. considering his only starting options were taking a $5 million paycut and stay with the ravens or sign with the bungles, i don't blame him one bit for retiring. if there was an injured qb on a good team next season, i wouldn't be surprised if elvis re-appears...or for that matter, if a starting qb job opens up the year after, either.
60 watts? what do you think this is, a tanning salon?
Why doesnt Grbac just say whats on his mind and say he doesnt want to commit to anyone right now? Nobody believes hes retired for real, he just wants to see what his options might be five months from now when training camp starts. Him saying hes retired just insults my intelligence. On the ither hand I can understand why he feels a little burned by Baltimore. I thought he got hung out to dry there. I think he got used as a scapegoat when the offense couldnt move the ball. The Ravens offensive problems went past him. But Shannon Sharpe embarassed him publicly and turned the team and the fans against him I think. Just my opinion...
If Mooch isn't far behind, the Lions better have someone lined up already. Making the move this late (without having someone ready to take the job) would be a bad move. Typical for the Lions, though, so who knows.
