Actually a Lennon-McCartney song, but it was recorded by the Stones as well as the Beatles.

Notice how the QB dominos have begun to fall since Rex was taken off the market? :shock:

Oh, and I wouldn't want to give Kazoo his 19th Nervous Breakdown so A Quick One While He's Away.

I Ain't Too Proud to Beg and I Almost Hear You Sigh but has Anybody Seen My Baby? Ever since we made the trade with the Rams she's been galavantin' in my Brand New Car and Can't Be Seen. I've had to consign myself to Champagne and Reefer! I'm Coming Down Again and it's kinda Complicated but I don't mind Confessin' The Blues. That Crazy Mama could be Dancing With Mr. D! We could be coming to each other's Emotional Rescue but instead I'm sittin' here with an Empty Heart just thinkin' about my girl with the Far Away Eyes. Yeah, I'm a Fool to Cry.

But Hold on to Your Hat. I Can't Get No Satisfaction but I'm Alright, I'm Free, and I'm Moving On.

Maybe it's Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me) but I'm beginning to stiffen for Griffin. Don't Laugh, I Nearly Died. And you know what else - the dude is just now Learning The Game. When it comes to football he's got a Mean Disposition. Mercy Mercy, this boy is a Midnight Rambler. Might as Well Get Juiced cuz he gonna be da bomb. He gonna throw da bomb. I know some of you have Mixed Emotions but the man is Money. He is My Obsession. He is the Prodigal Son and will make us more than Respectable. He gonna Rip This Joint. He gonna get all our Rocks Off and it gonna be some Rough Justice for the rest of the NFC East! So Shake Your Hips and let's Sing This All Together. Sparks Will Fly when this Street Fighting Man starts to Suck on the Jugular. Surprise, Surprise, this Sweet Black Angel is gonna Take the "A" Train and it's gonna be Terrifying.

That's How Strong My Love Is. RGIII - The Nearness of You has made me forget The Other Side of This Life. Just last week I thought This Place Is Empty but now I know Time Is On My Side. We Love You and Wild Horses couldn't drag us away. :mrgreen:

Interestingly, Kyle Orton was right behind Grossman's 4th place INT 5.5% rate with a 5.2% for 5th highest.

Anyone else horrified at the thought of Rex coming in for relief if RGIII goes down? Remember the Lions game back in 2010 when Grossman came in to relieve McNabb with 2 minutes left in a game that was still within our grasp? Grossman isn't even a competent QB, let alone a "decent backup". If that means he stands on the sidelines all year with a baseball cap and headphones holding a clipboard, then yes this was a good move.

I also don't think this means the end of Beck. He'll have one more chance come preseason to see who'll get the backup gig (unless of course the Shanny's want to employ a 3 QB set).

I'm NOT worried about Grossman

we're going to see a bunch of guys playing QB here the next 5 months

Grossman may win the job as back-up - IF he does, he will be playing with this season's players not the guys that were here last season

NOT THE SAME - we did not have any choice last year - this year we will

You can be sure that this franchise will not be turning the ball over a lot this season - the offense is going to be MUCH better

Robert has to make a huge effort to show he's got what it takes to be a future great QB - we need the real RG3 not the hyped version

You should be. There's a good chance that he could be our "gap' starter for the first couple of weeks if the Shanahan's believe that Griffin is not ready to start.

The Skins were 3-1 (no thanks to Grossman, outside of the first Giants game) and the majority of the fans were screaming for him to be benched. What does that tell you?

There's a lot of time to go here and nothing is set as far as who is making the roster OR what the offense will look like

I'm not worrying - the coaches and FO still have a lot of time to get this franchise ready to play

this franchise is going forward and the ONLY way that Grossman is the back up or even plays a bunch is IF he shows that he will NOT turn the ball over - we've been there done that - Grossman could very well be the starting QB or the back-up ... BUT only if he's able to show that he will not be the same QB as last season AND ... if he's able to do well in camp and pre-season


THIS offense is going to have many different players and be a lot better than last season

It's March - what's the point in thinking that the offense is not going to be a whole lot better - where is that coming from?
