Grossman on the other hand looked to be running a basic offense, basic drop and throw with a lot less "option". Plus he's as slow as molasses.

Funny that we are only talking about the 3rd QB spot and funnier that everyone seems to have forgotten the attrociousness we call Grossman.

Personally I'll take anyone over Grossman just to make sure he is not in any form an option if they need QB #3. I'm really shocked and suprised we are having this discussion. I knew there were the few Grossman lovers but the amount of beloved support baffles me.
I'm not even sure what you're watching.

WHat planet are you watching games from? Haha. PW is NOT running the same offense Bob runs. He runs the option aspect of it, albeit not as well but pretty good, but does not run the pass-offense at all. That's somewhat important since the two together make it all work.

They run the system that fits the QB and thats called good coaching. If you listened to Gruden the other night he was pretty impressed on how the coaching staff called the plays to match his abilities. He also stated how Grossman was a 2nd string QB that been there and done that sitting in the 3rd spot. Look what other teams have for back up QB's and I think you will see we are better off then most.

Polumbus is pretty awful, but in the larger context of guys who the Redskins started for multiple seasons (and multiple coaching staffs) after it was obvious they simply could not handle the speed of the NFL game, I'm not sure Polumbus would be in the top five.

Rabach, McIntosh, Sellers, and Hall would be that Mount Rushmore. And I don't think Polumbus has jumped Jamaal Brown or Ryan Torain quite yet.

Re: Steelers @ Redskins (Pre season game 2)

We should keep that kid Jose Gumbs on the roster instead of DeJon Gomes. I watched the replay of the game last night and he really was all over the field. Good speed and hard hitter, exactly what we need for a run supporting safety.

Rabach brings back bad memories. He was definitely a head scratcher how he stuck around for as long as he did. He was forever getting pushed back into the QB.

Re: Steelers @ Redskins (Pre season game 2)

there's generally only one reason bad players stay on rosters/in lineups:

teams don't have better options to replace them with.


if we had money maybe we could have signed vollmer, but we didn't, so pashos and trueblood came in from the vet min scrap heap and haven't shown to be an upgrade at this point, so... we are what we are.

Re: Steelers @ Redskins (Pre season game 2)

Thomas and Holmes lisfranc injuries must be epic compared to his.

Good point. One could make a similar argument for our secondary.

Was going to draft him in mine but guy right in front of me took him and I ended up with as R Mathews as my RB3 guy.
