Campbell may very well wind up being our day 1 starter, but i dont think we can assume that he will. I definitely see an open competition, atleast during the early stages of camp. hopefully, we'll have definatively named our starter before the preseason begins.
I'm all for competition but don't you think if they thought Grossman was going to be the starter they would sign him to a longer contract (1year).

You can renew at any time. 1 year means that they don't expect it, but aren't opposed to it. Campbell only has a year left as well if you look at it that way.

Very true but in regards to Grossman if they expected him to be #1 you wouldn't hesitate you would just DO IT! he's here to teach & God forbid injuries.

Re: Redskins Sign Grossman

Okay... this is news to me. Avoid the internet a few days and THIS is what i run into... Okay, I'm a fan of the Shan man. I've always thought he had a great eye for talent and i seriously expect great things in the near future... but Grossman!? Don't get me wrong. I thought Gibbs was crazy with some of his moves and the ones he had the most say in always seemed to pan out so i learned in the past to take the wait and see aproach and not throw my arms up in disgust at every 'odd' decision... but Grossman!?!? The man only played one 'good' season in which even the biggest Rex fan would have to admit he didn't get them there, their DEFENSE did. There were many games where his defense and special teams combined for more yards than his offense, and on Superbowl Sunday, when he needed to show up the most, he was pathetic. Since then, he hasn't been able to reclaim his #1 spot and i seriously don't want him to claim it here! His best year doesn't compare to Jason Campbell's best. He can barely get over 50% of his passes completed. Most of all, he's thrown more interceptions than touchdowns! Now call me old fashioned, but each position, to me, has a category that's more important to the rest when it comes to winning. For a receiver, it's clutch catching and drops. For a runningback, it's YPC and fumbles. For a QB it's TD vs INT. As basic as it gets, every TD is a chance to win and every INT is a chance for the other team to win. Straight up and down and simple. Everything was looking up to me... but this Grossman deal seriously makes me begin to doubt the Shanahans.

Re: Redskins Sign Grossman

Now as a back-up... i guess he's a giant leap up from Todd Collins... As long as he's not the #1 guy, i'll try to keep the barfing to a minimum... pass the pepto

Re: Redskins Sign Grossman

I have an irrational man crush on Rex Grossman. Yes, he sucks, but I'm happy we signed him anyway.

Why? If he sucks, why are you happy we signed him?

Umm...because he's a back-up maybe?

No seriously, Grossman played in this very offense last season under Kyle Shanahan, our new offensive coordinator. So that's a pretty good reason. And honestly, there are some who feel Grossman got a bum deal in Chicago similar to Jason Campbell here in D.C. Not in the same exact way, but all the pieces haven't been there in Chicago for sometime now. So we'll see, but it was by no means a "horrible" signing. The biggest issue I think people have with it around here is the possibility of Grossman starting. That's a legit gripe.

Re: Redskins Sign Grossman

Now that we have Rex, we just need to sign the last piece of our Super Bowl roster: Pacman Jones.
