It's not like he came in and threw 14 TDs as the peerless paragon of perfected passing :P

Re: Rex Grossman Named Starting QB

Rex is just better folks, I was all for Beck but after watching the last few games he's just not that good of a passer plain and simple. His arm is avg at best and his sidearm stuff is just ugly. Rex will be ok for us but he's not taking this team that far either IMO

For the record, I'm not in either qb's camp. I'm in the "whoever gets us the best shot to win" camp.
Exactly!

Re: Rex Grossman Named Starting QB

That Guy and Okie have it right. I am not a big Grossman guy, but to have all these guys in here actually think a 30 year old journeyman QB is going to turn into an All Pro at some point is just like if I thought if we got Gus back he would do the same. At least Gus did make the Pro Bowl once, so Beck isn't even as Good as Gus was at 30.

Re: Rex Grossman Named Starting QB

must say im surprised. grossman is the "safer" choice, but beck has a higher ceiling/potential in this offense. that said, i will defer to the coaches' wisdom on this subject.

Shanahan confirms Grossman is Redskins’ starter | ProFootballTalk

That makes it official PFT printed it.

Brennan never had a fair shot. He played better than any skins QB in preseason. granted i know its just preseason but he showed i lot I felt.

Everybody but washington knew that Campbell was not an NFL starter and soon Oakland will know it too. I could never understand for the life of me that they kept Campbell in here for years no matter how bad he played, it's like they were afraid to turn to other QB's, which proved that the Owner was making the decisions then and not the coach.

Re: Rex Grossman Named Starting QB

I think JC has proven he can start in this league. It's time to get over it.

Colt isn't even a backup in this league, and that's a fact.

Re: Rex Grossman Named Starting QB

I'd rather have Rex than Jason IMHO.. I always liked Campbell and yes he's a solid QB but he's the same ev game.. 200 yds and 1TD 1INT. Rex showed he can get hot and sling it all over the field.. Colt was garbo folks god bless him recovering from that wreck and all but he was never a legit option at QB.. Now Chase Daniel may have been

I guess my fiancee gets to put up with my random outbursts of, "Eff it, HE'S GOING DEEP!" than I anticipated. She'll be thrilled, I'm sure.

Re: Rex Grossman Named Starting QB

As I expected and as I wanted.
I always thought the whole Beck hype was a bunch of hoohaa.
Rex aint no Kenny Stabler but at least he has a little vet savvy.
But as I have said before, this is a throwaway year QB-wise.
Too bad because the reast of the team looks pretty good.

For the life of me, I will never ever understand the Colt Brennan Kool Aid drinkers.
