Rex Grossman is Washington Redskins QB1 OFFICIALLY!

Share

The “sex cannon” is once again a starter in the NFL. The Washington Redskins depth chart lists Rex Grossman as first on opening day at the position of quarterback. (And people wonder why I call Daniel Snyder the worst owner in all of sports).

Does that sound nuts to Chicago Bears fans? It should because Rex Grossman’s one “good” season. Actually, it was a good half-season as Sexy Rexy led the Bears to the Super Bowl (or you could say they went to the Super Bowl in spite of him,

His twenty-three touchdowns in one season (’06) rank Grossman among the best Bears quarterbacks in the franchise’s history. while his twenty interceptions in one season are among the most thrown by any Bears’ quarterback in almost two decades. The unusual combination ranked Grossman as statistically the most inconsistent quarterback in almost a decade. See the chart below

But it’s not that crazy, as Grossman had his best season passer rating for his career last year; by about 10 points. And he played in four games, started three, so he ended up with the third most passing attempts in a season for his career.  And what else can the Skins do? John Beck, could beat Rex out for the #1 position as the season progresses. But after that……it gets real ugly. It’s pretty sad that Washington has had so few options that they need to settle for Rex.

It’s going to be yet another long season in what should be the NFL’s toughest division. Good luck getting past the Eagles, Giants and Cowboys.

  1. yea he’s starting and he also did better the donavan the dumbass and if mcnabb was the person that was starting nobody woulda said anything, although people are too stupid to understand that grossman had better stats then mcnabb. mcnabb could only muster 1 touchdown a game for more the half the season. seriously?

    As I said, he had his best statistical season last yr. of course, it’s just 4 games, and Rexy has only played a full season once in his career. And it wasn’t very good. and when you extrapolate hsi numbers more, it only gets worse
