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.

Yea they did nonetheless.

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%.

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.

He may have worked hard, and wanted it badly, but invariably JB always throws off of his Beck foot!

How does Beck have a higher ceiling?? Beck has had his shots, so has Rex. Rex went to a super bowl. Just because Beck is good at the bootleg means he has a higher ceiling? Looks like to me if you take away the bootleg he doesn't have much on Rex. Rex understands the system better and makes the "F&@% it, I'm going deep" throws.

PS: I am not johnny5dickey. Just observation from the preseason.

He seems much improved, but yeah...

I have a pretty tight and mixed group of friends with whom I watch football every season. There's Cowboys fans, Bears fans, Broncos fans, etc., and it's pretty cool because of all the ish talking that goes on. I clearly remember that last season he was with the Bears and always screwing with my bud, saying "Damn, did Rex just get picked again?"

He was turnover prone, plain and simple.

Still, he looks like he has worked on that, and he looked better than Beck overall, so I am fine with this so long as we win. That's all I want for the 'Skins: to win.

And for the first time in a long time the team doesn't seem schizophrenic, so maybe we will do just that...

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.
But he is in his 3rd year in a system that much better suits his skill set. Comparing apples and bird doodoo....

Re: Rex Grossman Named Starting QB

I was a little shocked when I heard the news .. I was out in the middle of Wisconsin enjoying Pearl Jam 20, the 20th anniv. of the greatest band of my era. Hell of a show, getting back to the point .... After letting the Sex Cannon news sink in, I'm actually okay with it .... I wont' lie, when he's in the game I don't feel too bad at all, and honestly I don't feel bad having Beck being our backup. I know we all drink kool aid every year but something tells me we are on to something special.

Re: Rex Grossman Named Starting QB

Very encouraging to hear the other guys like Rex. At the very least he seems to have the confidence of coaches and players alike.

I hope he starts "solid" and builds steadily through the season.
