Feel the expectations rising. Yes.

Rex is as fine a pre-season quarterback as the NFL has ever seen.

Goooo Sexy Rexy!

I like Cutler as our QB, but I still miss Rex.

To put things into perspective, most of the defensive players that Grossman was torching during the game won't be on rosters next Sunday.

Although I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Grossman is, in fact, a zombie.

...couldn't *stand* Rex.

Wouldn't mind Kyle back, though. Never thought he got a real fair shake.
 
2012-08-26 01:22:45 PM  
wow he entered the game in the 3rd quarter, competing against the dreck and JAGs* of the Colts 80-man roster, and completed 8 passes! look out, canton.



*"just a guy" aka "camp bodies"

Alright everyone, say it with me now:

I always thought JAG was "just another guy", as in describing an average player

Anyway, is quarterback rating still the go to stat for quarterbacks now? I think ESPN has something called QBR and there might be other ones.

Rex succeeds and fails spectacularly. Kyle won't win or lose anything for you.

I think there was a major flaw with QBR where they had to rework their system a bit. I think Tebow broke it.

Clearly, he'll be the #1 draft pick in all FF leagues this year.

You mean, by being rated as a quarterback?

Being a HUGE 'skins fan, and having watched practically every play of every game, season and post-season for the last 35 years or so (we did 5 years in California as a young so I was deprived of most of Sonny J.'s career and in those days there was no requirement to be forced to show the sold out home games on TV and the 'skins owner (G. P. Marshall, biggest dickwad ever) wouldn't televise home games, even if a sellout, since he wanted to keep the fans begging to be on a waiting list a mile long) so I missed a few back in the '60's but none since 1975 or so anyway I'm pretty sure I'm one of those legendary "over the top 'skins fan) I'll safely say that was the greatest preseason performance of any skins QB since Laufenberger (actually, RG's was probably the best ever. He looked great - every pass was right on target - no fumbles either). I still truly believe that if RGIII (Grossman is also an RGIII so it's the real RGIII) gets hurt Cousins is coming in to take over unless it's half time and the next week it will be Cousins. Cousins looks like he's going to be a very good quarterback. The real RGIII is going to be a GREAT NFL QB. Sexy Rexy is still an average QB anyway - but Cousins is good and RGIII GREAT (well, evenetually).

I think I got close to a perfect rating with The Dragon once or twice in Madden. Probably on easy level and I was chucking bomb after bomb.

Rex has traditionally played very well for 3 consecutive games. By game two, his passes begin dropping a little lower. By game three, his passes won't reach the intended receiver and as they begin dropping somewhere near their feet. He then, begins overcompensating by throwing over his down-field receivers and striking lurking defenders in their hands. By game five, you want to club Rex like a baby seal. One day, he might make a good coach. Might.

Agree - it's somewhat mental and also due to his small hands. He just tries to force things when they don't go well. But he was very accurate and knew were to throw.

The funniest was back in '06 when Rex started out awesome by pretending he was playing Madden, and then how as soon as one team realized that keeping a safety deep would pretty much make his whole game useless, how fast he fell down to earth.

Being freshly transplanted to DC, I am very amused at how excited the city is for RG3. I am curious to see if they turn on players as fast as Chicago fans do.

Nah, we're still giving Grossman the benefit of the doubt. Most everyone is a recent transplant to DC anyway - it's the city with the most out of town rooters of any city in the country.

He was playing quite well for the 'skins briefly and then we had 3 major injuries on the offensive line in one or two weeks, had no running game suddenly, and the defenses were able to over load on all out blitzes and he had no chance to deal with that with no running game, no blockers and small hands (he's not too tall either).

The funny thing is, if he sits out a game or two it's like hitting a reset button inside his head. He'll come back fresh and go through his cycle again. So, he's 3 games on, one or two games off. He needs a QB bullpen. I think he would pair well with Tim Tebow, together, they could end up winning a Super Bowl.

Or did you mean out of towners who root for the home team, because that's then the polar opposite of Phoenix.

No kidding. I moved there in '95, left in 2006. But I do root for the stupid Redskins still.

Good point, I forget about all those retired folks. Might be equal, Phoenix might have the edge. I suppose there are Florida cities with the same claim.

There are Pittsburgh bars in many places. DC. Florida. Etc.

Rex Grossman has always been infuriating to watch. There are flashes of talent and brilliance in there - and at times he strings together a bunch of good plays - but than the rest of the time it's a big WTF. And you never know which Rex will run out onto the field. Reminds me a lot of Jeffd George at times.

I think it was well-said above. His best game is the PA deep outside route - it plays to his strength of having a good arm, and hides his weaknesses of having small hands (he has another second or so to grip the ball) and his height (better vision outside deep). Once teams figured out that was his only real passing threat, he was toast.

Meh, I live in a less... we'll go with gentrified... area. There are a ton of cars with Redskins plates, flags and decals. People have been walking around in RGIII jerseys since the draft. If two jerseys see each other, they stop and talk about how he will lead them to the playoffs.

Maybe it is because I am from Chicago, and thus never thought of the QB as an important part of the football team

Offensive and defensive lines are way more important and no one man is all that important on a football team indeed. Washington is a town starved for heros to worship - at least RGIII thus far has walked the walk of a pretty good role model for the youth of DC, but that assumes the youth of DC want a role model from the "stablishment" (I suspect not in a lot of cases). I don't envy the next 20 years for folks that have to deal with the problems of the youth of a certain group of people, the one's whose parents today cannot get a job anywhere today. It is not going to be a fun and easy task. I'll stay hiding on my farm with my gun and get the fark off my lawn.

The fans may not, but the team will ruin him. They ruin all good QBs. That's what you get for having Danny "Pretzel Boy" Snyder out there.
