If there was any doubt that you should stop hoping the Redskins will ever be good again, it should be gone now.
Rex Grossman is the worst quarterback in the history of the NFL to ever start in the Super Bowl. As quarterback of the Chicago Bear in 2006, all he had to do was not throw interceptions, and he couldn't even do that.
He had one of the best defenses in the NFL, the most electrifying punt returner in NFL history in Devin Hester, and Thomas Jones behind him. Lovie Smith literally was telling him "don't throw it to the other team and we will win."
If you read my previous post on how I didn't like the signing of Larry Johnson, you know that I'm a bit skeptical of the new management. However, before this, you could defend them by saying that there is no rove Johnson won't bounce back. But this?
Grossman has never had a good season! He can't bounce back too anything other than mediocre!
Hell, I can't even form complete sentences at this point. 'Baffled' is truly the only word I can use to describe myself here.
Even if you have somehow convince yourself that Shanahan is going to use him as nothing but a backup, do you even want him close enough to your starter to talk with him?
What do you think Grossman would talk about?
"Dude, I know he is triple covered, but trust me, it will work"
Jason Campbell has been under so many systems between here and Auburn, that I wouldn't be surprised if he listened to anyone. Even the advice of the worst backseat driver ever.
Theoretically, Grossman is there because he was the backup in Houston, when Kyle Shanahan was running the show and he is going to help teach Jason Campbell-or whoever or quarterback may be-the system.
However, I don't want that man to teach my quarterback anything. That is like bringing in Shaq to teach your center how to shoot free throws.
The question I have is does this mean the Redskins no longer want to draft a quarterback in the first round. With Campbell, Grossman and Colt Brennan, where does the new quarterback fit?
If the Skins pass up the opportunity to draft Sam Bradford or Jimmy Clausen because of this guy, get ready to break out your tar and feathers. It is going to get Ug-ly.
At this point, I honestly don't know if the Redskins' management is trying to perform a stand up comedy act or build a champion.
Either way, it is making me laugh and cry at the same time.
