Grossman. I was worried that if McNabb had to miss a few games the Skins would have an inadequate back-up but it looks like if Rex has to come in for a few games he can get the job done.

I am not as confident at you Irish. He was pretty close to throwing 2-3 Ints the other night. Turnovers are a killer.

Any backup can come in and throw INTs...why not have one who can possibly light up a defense too? Risk and reward.

Since he's NOT the starter, I'm OK with him being a bit dangerous, because he can carry us too if he's having a good day. He's the backup, so why not have a backup who can score instead of just "manage" the game to a couple of FGs.

No other team can say they have 2 Super Bowl starting QBs on their roster.

Armstrong was "pretty close" to fumbling before getting into the end zone, Fred was "pretty close" to stepping out of bounds on his TD and McNabb was "pretty close" to getting a concussion when whacked on the head illegally.

We can't really get down on what "almost" happened. They didn't. We scored 42 points and Rex completed most of his passes and 2 TDs, with almost as many yards as all three Bills QBs COMBINED.

I'll take the performances from everyone on the team.

Grossman played well the other night. I'm not concerned about what didn't happen, sure he could have thrown a couple of picks, but he didn't.

Re: Players that impressed you the most after the 1st preseason game?

After watching the second game, imvho, Grossman has played better that McNabb so far. I understand that Grossman has a better grasp of this system because of his time with young Shanny plus McNabb's history of playing less than stellar during preseason. Yet when the real bullets are flying it will be Grossman who will possibly be the one who lets you down, if history is any judge.
