Redskins Start with Grossman

We all know that Rex Grossman has been to the Super Bowl, and conventional wisdom says he went on the backs of his defense. We consider it the same as the 2003 Ravens who won the Super Bowl with Trent Dilfer who only started the last half of the season.

 

Clearly, Baltimore won the Super Bowl in spite of their quarterbacks that year.

 

Maybe we judge Grossman too harshly. The 2006 Bears were 2nd in the league in scoring that year putting up 427 points. I’m not sure we can say that Chicago made it on defense alone like Baltimore did.

Can Grossman be for Real?


Grossman’s recent performance in his pre-season debut with the Redskins got me to thinkin’; can this guy really be better than I thought? Yeah sure it’s a preseason game, but I expected to see fumbled handoffs, interceptions and stalled drives the moment McNabb took his pads off. I think we all felt the same thing; Buffalo must be really bad if they can make Rex Grossman look like our starter.

It’s easy to have doubts about the abilities of Rex Grossman even though he’s played in a Super Bowl. Everyone knows that Grossman made his way into that Super Bowl on the backs of his defense. When you think about Grossman you see a QB rating of 59.7 since he achieved that rating twice in his career with the Bears.

Samuels, Geisinger Placed On I.R., James Released, and Much More


The Redskins made a flurry of roster moves on Tuesday, the biggest one being the placement of five-time Pro Bowl left tackle Chris Samuels to injured reserve with a torn triceps muscle.

The Redskins also placed reserve offensive lineman Justin Geisinger on injured reserve with a knee injury suffered againt the Baltimore Ravens on Sundy night.

To fill their spots, the Redskins elevated offensive lineman Devin Clark from the practice squad to the active roster and signed former New York Jets and Carolina Panthers offensive lineman Will Montgomery.

The Redskins signed former Carolina Panthers guard Rueben Riley to the practice squad to fill Clark’s spot.

The Redskins also announced the release of defensive end Erasmus James, the former Minnesota Vikings first round pick who was acquired in a trade this summer. James saw very limited action during the 2008 season. No move has been made to fill his void at this time.

In addition, the Chicago Bears signed wide receiver Devin Aromashodu off of the Redskins practice squad onto their active roster.

To replace Aromashodu, the Redskins signed wide receiver Marques Hagans to the practice squad.

Hagans is in his second season. He entered the league with the St. Louis Rams as a fifth round pick out of the University of Virginia in 2006.

Aromashodu is the fifth member of the Redskins practice squad to be signed to another team’s active roster this season.
