He was f-ckin garbage, had one DECENT game and the Colt of Colt went on to proclaim him as the one that we let get away. Like I said earlier, we shouldve kept Chase Daniel, a QB who is actually still in the league. I believe he is the # QB behind Brees. Colt probably couldnt even make a Canadian League roster as a 3rd QB.....

Sh-t, at least Ramsey actually started games in this league. He left here and made it to other rosters as a #2 or #3....Colt aint do SH-T......

One decent PRESEASON game. His diehards convinced themselves that his limited physical ability and poor mechanics were actually just "moxie". It was amazing.

Re: Rex Grossman Named Starting QB

I am surprised I thought it was Beck all the way. Feel like this has the chance to be like Dayne Chryst and Tommy Reese for Notre Dame. I think I wanted Beck because of the "unknown" and I was hoping he was better than we were all thinking. Oh well we shall see, hopefully they made this decision with the goal of winning as many games this year as possible. Cant wait for sunday!

One thing you can always count on as a Redskins fan is a QB controversy.

Re: Rex Grossman Named Starting QB

If Grossman can perform like he did in pre season I am all for him. But I remember his time at Chicago and his horrible ratings then. I mean to this date he has a 40/40 rating. If he does good this year then fine.. but hes not someone to build a team around for the future. Jason Campbell wasnt either. I liked ferrotte and brennan.

Re: Rex Grossman Named Starting QB

Two straight years, Mike Shanahan does not lie with his depth chart. You will see what he's thinking, whether or not it makes sense to you.

Re: Rex Grossman Named Starting QB

I am glad that the Skins put it out early in the week. Now I am looking forward to Eli starting the season with a 3-4 pick game, and Good Rex showing up for a 3TDs 300 yard game

Same here...I didn't want this to be a bit of a circus in the week before the opener. Also, as I had mentioned before, I was curious to know who was Kyle Shanahan's choice, and I wonder if this was the case. I hope there is enough talent around Rex to make him a good QB. This team needs continuity in every area, including at the QB position. Feel a bit bad for Beck, since I know this injury he had affected his ability to play, and Rex jumped on the opportunity. But hey, this happens. Now let's get this season started with a big time "W" against the G-men.

Re: Rex Grossman Named Starting QB

Yeah, I never liked him. Colt came from a school that played most of their games at home, with their opponents, not only of lesser fare, but they had to fly like 7,000 miles to get to HA. Any QB could have had that passingrecord if they had those advantages going for them. Daniel I thought should have stayed, but even that was a coaches call.

Re: Rex Grossman Named Starting QB

Let me throw this out there, because I hope it's a similar story...

Rex Grossman (6'1, 222 lbs) = Joe Theismann (6'0, 192 lbs) anyone??

As a reminder... Theismann did not start regularly until he was 29 (John Beck anyone?), when he had his first season where he started more than 7 games. Grossman is 30 and has just one season of more than 7 starts while in his 20's as well. So at age 30, they both are close in games/experience, which for both was not good... but people forget just how bad Theismann was in his 20's. I'm sure when he got the starting nod, people laughed as well.

Check Theismann's numbers in his 20's:
GS W-L COMP-ATT PCT YDS TD INT SACKS RATE
25 14-11 369-768 48% 4,967 30 40 98 60.4

Here's Grossman's numbers in his 20's:
GS W-L COMP-ATT PCT YDS TD INT SACKS RATE
31 19-12 524-971 54% 6,197 33 36 58 69.5

Some things that stood out... Theismann was garbage early in his career. How many guys could survive to 30 in today's NFL with a 48% completion pct and averaging an INT every 18 throws? Also.. check out the huge difference in sacks. Theismann has (CORRECTION --->) 40 more in 200+ less dropbacks!

However, as we all know, Theismann was DECENT at age 30-32 (58.6% comp, 9,327 yds, 56 TDs, 49 INT, 78.5 QBR), then put it together for 2 1/2 years from age 33 to 35. He was 34 when he had a career year (60% comp, 3,700 yds, 29 TDs, 11 INTs, 97.0 QBR) & won a Super Bowl.

Last year, at age 30, Grossman was 55.6% comp, 884 yds, 7 TDs, 4 INTs, 81.2 QBR... and honestly, surprised with how "un-horrible" he was. Then this Preseason he looked even more comfortable with the offense and throwing to Moss & Gaffney (who he played with at Florida).

To add, if you get the time, check out how horrible Doug Williams was (47% comp, 66.2 QBR) before he turned 30 and went to Skins as well...

Just saying.... Grossman could be on the same path (with the new "Smurfs/Fun Bunch" = Moss, Gaffney, Armstrong, Austin??)

What can I say? This the one time of year we are all pumped about how great we'll be and I'm all in!

Grew up watching Theismann... but cant stand to listen to his commentating now. But I love watching Riggo's show..... He tells it like it is and doesnt hold any punches...
