Yes. In fact, Rex not becoming a Cowboy, Giant, or Eagle is more than enough ...

Of course, I'm repeating myself.


I understand your point about him knowing the playbook, but come on man. Wouldn't you LOVE to see Grossman under center for the Cowboys, Giants or Eagles??? :)

Pat White is Colt Brennan recalibrated for the read-option.

THAT would be fine. \:D/

What I DON'T want is Rex talking to the defensive coordinators of those teams. THAT would suck. He knows sooo much about this offense.

Isn't that a job for a coach?

That's pretty much his role. I see him retiring and being hired as a coach before leaving to be on a roster elsewhere. The only problem I see right now is money. He makes a million a year to wear a uniform. Do any of our position coaches make that kind of coin?

:shock: wow - I just don't agree with that ^^ at all :lol:
RG3 is now learning how to play QB in the NFL - Mike & Kyle did not help with the transition

Jay & Sean are going to make it happen ... "the things we’re doing are things he’s comfortable with & complement his strengths"

True. Mark Brunell held on for a while the same way after he left here. It's hard to turn down seven figures to sit on a bench for a couple last years.

That is a great bit of analysis. Please, those who are seriously advocating we cut Grossman in favor of White, read this post thoroughly, then come back here and tell me you still think that. Everything he says is spot on. Fair warning, though: once he points out how badly White stares down receivers, you'll never be able to "unsee" it.

Keep Grossman. All the best to White, but we don't need him here.

Of course. It doesn't hurt to have a QB (despite the fact that I can't stand his play) who's been to the Superbowl as your backup.
