Not impressed with Rex

No one has ever mistaken Rex Grossman for a Pro Bowl quarterback. In fact few believe he is even talented enough to be a starting quarterback. Not since his days at the University of Florida has Rex been considered great at his craft. He is a career backup most known for fumbling a way a Super Bowl as a Chicago Bear. The Washington Redskins and Mike Shanahan seem to be the exception to this rule. Mike and his son Kyle are putting faith in the dream that the first eight years of Rex’s career were an aberration. They hope that Rex has what it takes to lead a team to a championship. I, as a life long Redskins fan do not share this faith. In fact I believe this decision is delusional. If it looks like a backup quarterback and throws like a backup quarterback, then guess what, it’s a backup quarterback. I am not saying that John Beck was John Elway this preseason but you have to give the kid a chance. The stats between the two of them were almost identical so neither guy truly won the job. We already know what Rex can do so why not see if John Beck has the potential to be what we already know Rex isn’t, a franchise quarterback. That position hasn’t been filled in DC since a coke frenzied Lawrence Taylor snapped Joe Theismann’s leg  twenty-six years ago. A franchise without a quarterback  is a joke and that’s what my beloved Redskins have become. Since buying the team 1999 all Daniel Snyder has done is meddle in football operations of his team. For twelve years Redskins fans have cursed him for this. Now, as we are less than a week away from playing a divisional rival with the eyes of the country on us where is his meddling? Is he happy with Rex Grossman as his starting quarterback? I can’t imagine he is. I wonder how he feels when he has to tell people that Rex Grossman is his starting quarterback. I know how I feel, embarrassed.
