REx still thinks he can muscle throws into the middle of the field. His worst INTs are always to LBs or safeties sitting in a crowded zone.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs. Dolphins)

Matty,

I don't think he blows. He was moving the ball up and down the field. He made some really good throws under pressure. There was one out route in particular where he delivered a perfect timing pass before the WR broke and he took a huge hit afterwards.

I think the inconsistency is the killer with him. But we have known that from day 1. down 9-13 on their 10 yard line you just can't throw that INT. It hurt a lot too, because we were just developing some momentum.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs. Dolphins)

Will there be this much hate for Shanny and Co with a new 1WR, 2 new Olinemen, and a New starting QB?

Folks, we are still lacking in talent from the offense side. Last year defense was the proirity, this year with a full offseason there will be renewed focus on the offense. Im willing to wait and see, patient is a b*tch though.

But continue on...

Well he basically said after the game he felt an obligation to make something happen. Which is what always happens. He's out to prove that he can be the reason we win games, and it just backfires

Still better than Beck, since he can move the ball. Rex will lose more games than win them, but Beck will lose all of them.

Wrecks is like the guy that runs around in COD and ends up with a 15-25 k/d. Beck camps in the corner and ends up 1-5.

Pick your poison.

It's ok to say it, Rex blows.
Yes he did stare down Gaffney. How hard is it to teach a QB to not look at the intended WR? maybe go through your progressions backwards, look at him at the beginning to make sure he's gotten off his block then come back to him at the right time.

I remember watching the play develope and immediatly looked to Gaffney myself because I thought oooh slant go to him.... but then it seemed Grossman waited too long to go to the play, Gaffney ran right into the LB and stopped and then instead of getting in front of the LB he shuffles behind him and works his route toward the endzone, and the dreaded pass right into the LB's hands.

Moving the ball up and down the field is useless if you can't score.

He blows, he's thrown almost twice as many INTs as TDs this year, along with losing 2 fumbles. Add in his medicore career numbers and I don't know what else you want to call it.

LOL nice analogy.... but it's supposed to be reversed..... Beck was supposed to be the more mobile QB. lol. but your 100% correct.

Exactly. You don't win games based off the amount of yardage you accumulate. Driving down to the goal line only to give them the ball doesn't do squat for the team.

Yup, and I'm tired of the excuses for both Grossman and Beck. Let's just call it like it is, both guys stink. I'm not about to hop on the fire Shanahan wagon yet, but it's a concern that for 2 years now his QB choices have been complete head scratchers.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs. Dolphins)

This fire shanahan stuff is nonsense. Firing Shanahan would almost certainly involve Snyder bringing Cerrato back in some capacity. I think both Shanahans need to stay here atleast 3 years before firing is even in the discussion.
