Re: Rex Grossman Named Starting QB

The Shanahans made the right call on QB. Let's roll with Rexy and see how far he can take us. I do think at some point, we will see Beck, but I'm hoping it's because we're steamrolling the competition! ;-)

I see your point. And I have no problem with the move. I just don't like the idea of Grossman possibly having to look over his shoulder. If Grossman is the man then we need to see it through. This is a player with 8 years of experience. Its not like we are looking at him for the first time here. If he has what it takes to start, then why all the QB drama last season...

Re: Rex Grossman Named Starting QB

Rex probably gives us the best shot at winning right now. We have a much more solid supporting cast around him this year so as long as he plays within the offense, we could be alright with him.

I'm not expecting him to be a Pro Bowler but he doesn't have to be. As long as good Rex shows up a lot more often than bad Rex I think we can challenge for a wild card.

Is this the part where I run around like a chicken with my head cut off and hold up a banner "SUCK 4 LUCK!!"??

Re: Rex Grossman Named Starting QB

Quoting from John Keim's article: Redskins notes: Shanahan's decision, injury updates | John Keim | NFL | Washington Examiner

Quote:
Its also clear that Shanahan was fair in this competition. Id heard all along from several league sources that he liked John Beck better entering camp. Naturally, you think hell then go that way. But Rex Grossman played better. Beck made some poor decisions and looked uncomfortable vs. Tampa Bay. And Grossman deserved to win. Shanahan picked the right guy. That will play well in the locker room; not that players were hoping hed pick Grossman, but knowing that it was indeed open goes a long way.
Perhaps, Shanahan is an evil genius (stay with me on this):
(1) He knows that he has a bad situation at QB and the only way around it is to make the rest of the team pull together;
(2) He knows Beck is not the answer but also knows he is enough of an unknown that he can generate some buzz - unlike Rex who will always been seen as mediocre;
(3) Wanting to pull the team together - he creates a "competition" by putting up the facade of prefering Beck with the knowledge that it is going to be Grossman;
(4) In the end, neither really stand out but, rather than being disappointed that they are being led by a mediocre QB, the team pulls together b/c they believe Shanahan is "fair" when, in fact, he has just been manipulating them!

Muhahahahahahaaa

Haha like Herb Brooks from the Us Olympic hockey team? I could see that but I dont think he has done that. I think he tried to make the best of a not so good situation.

Re: Rex Grossman Named Starting QB

I think this is part of Shanahan setting the competitive tone for this team. Beck may have been who they wanted to start, but the competition didn't play out that way. If it has truly been one sided in practice and they gifted the starting job to a guy that didn't deserve it, that wouldn't have gone over well in the locker room. The Skins have had enough entitlement and have just started the process of clearing it out. It would have only been detrimental to their philosophy to start any player who didn't beat out the competition

Re: Rex Grossman Named Starting QB

I'm not happy about this...
But did they really have a choice with the options we left ourselves with?

We have a few new weapons to utilize so that's a + (Hightower,Helu,Hank)
Who knows... let's just win games. Bubble screen it to Santana, quick middles to Cooley, run a lot and let's go boys

Beck will take over coming out for the second half against the Giants.

Re: Rex Grossman Named Starting QB

The best thing about having Rex as a QB?...I can keep my fantasy football team name of "The Unleashed Dragons"

I feel this way 100%.

Thats the crap I don't want to see. Nothing would deflate the momentum the Skins may have more than seeing their starting QB pulled. Gotta stick with Grossman all the way thru. Cant have another season of QB drama.

Agreed. We have been sorely lacking consistency at the QB position. If Rex is the starting QB then I hope that he stays as the starter.
