Then again the number of sacks given up especially compared to the Houston line in 2009 (46-25) is disturbing.

Still can't deny how improved the unit was over the late 2008 and 2009 units.
This was a much improved OL from other recent seasons. Will Montgomery was dreadful against Jacksonville, but he belongs at Center anyway. For what it's worth, 2010 was Rabach's best season since 2007. He's the worst pass blocking center in the league, but he's typically reliable at the second level and on screens.

Dan Hellie......didn't see a John Beck pass over thirty yards at todays practice that wasn't a duck.

It's still early. Beck has probably been enjoying his offseason and not ready for the repetitions at this point.

If he's granted the starting position he should hold up under Shanny's scheme.

Year Starts
2003 3
2004 3
2005 2
2006 16
2007 8
2008 4
2009 1
2010 4

In 2006 where Grossman started 16 games he threw 20 interceptions. Last season Grossman threw 4 interceptions in just 4 games. Not good. This is a concern because Grossman has started 41 games and has already thrown 40 interceptions. He is a stop gap guy and that is all. I would rather play a young guy and let him learn then waste our time with Grossman who is never going to be elte.
QFT Grossman blew a 17pt lead in the Superbowl with one of the best defenses in the NFL. He had all the momentum, and couldn't close, just a myraid of mistakes. No thanks..

17 point lead? Was Grossman in some other Superbowl I don't know about?

I think he meant to say 7 point lead.

Re: Rex Grossman's Three Game Audition

I never noticed how often he throws off of his back foot.

Unleashing the Dragon is a powerful move. It's hard to keep both feet on the ground.

Re: Rex Grossman's Three Game Audition

Chicago police reported that some individual attempted to "egg" Lovie
Smith's house last night.


The report stated;
An empty egg carton was recovered at the scene. Two eggs hit Mr.
Smith's house, 3 eggs went over his house and hit his neighbor's back
door, 2 eggs hit the houses of each of his next-door neighbors, and the
remaining 3 eggs were found broken on the ground near the carton from
where the individual threw them.

Re: Rex Grossman's Three Game Audition

I watched these last week sometime, but didn't get a chance to comment so here goes.


I thought Rex's accuracy was amazingly good, and it seemed like he could pretty much make all the throws. Many of those passes he made do not get completed if McNabb is back there. It's exactly why Rex looked so much better than McNabb in running the offense.

The biggest flaw I see in Rex is that his pocket awareness is horrible and he doesn't do a good job of securing the ball. Also, I noticed a few of his balls batted down. Possibly his height playing a factor?


This was brilliant Dirtbag...lol




*hats off*
