Meet Rex Grossman, Starting QB for the Redskins
A lot of people have asked for my reaction to Donovan McNabb getting benched and Rex “Sex Cannon” Grossman getting the start against Dallas this week. OK, a few people did. Or one. Fine, in actuality no one did. But I am going to talk about it anyway.
My flip one-liner response that came to me right after I heard the news was this: Wow, I would care if it was still football season.
That pretty much sums up my feelings. This is a 5-8 team in late December. Or are they 5-9? Who cares. The point is, the season’s over. At this point, we might as well be playing our 4th preseason game. The head coach and offensive coordinator clearly don’t care for the QB they traded those draft picks for (/swallowing rage) and want to see what the backup can do. They are already preparing for next year, which is fine by me. Get this year over with.
McNabb clearly isn’t the answer, unless the question is “what Redskins QB went 5-8 (or maybe 5-9) during the 2010 season?” The team has a lot of holes. Rex Grossman went to precisely as many Super Bowls as Donovan McNabb in prior years. Let see what he has. Let him Unleash the Dragon. I want Rex Grossman to look at the running back during a screen pass and think to himself, “Fuck it, I’m goin’ deep.” To be honest, I am more likely to watch the team with Grossman than with McNabb. Why? Because at least now I know they’ll lose, it won’t be close, and I don’t need to stress about it. I wanna watch him toss it up deep to Moss and Armstrong 15 times. They’ll get creamed, but it’ll be entertaining.
