A critical(ly positive) review of Rex Grossman as Redskins quarterback.

I'm not sure if you've realized this, but Rex Grossman has a chance to be a winning quarterback on the Redskins this year.  He's currently 5-6 as a starter this year with two games to play.  When Redskins Hog Heaven went through and did our predictions for the year, both Tony and I thought the Redskins would finish 7-9.  However, neither of us believed that Grossman...

Grossman turnovers 'not acceptable' to Redskins

Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan says Rex Grossman has ''way too many turnovers, which is not acceptable.'' Grossman, meanwhile, keeps finding ways to shrug them off. He said this week that interceptions stick in the newspapers because of the attention they get, but they don't really stick in his head. Grossman has 22 giveaways this season...

The confounding case of Rex Grossman

While Rex Grossman’s numbers always have him on the fringe of the bench, he has found ways to win against the Vikings. This year, his Redskins are better with him as the starter than without him.

Vikings have much to play for Saturday

Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier attempted to provide a spark for his free-falling team this week.Dealing with a short week in advance of Saturday's Christmas Eve game at Washington and trying to snap out of the funk of a six-game losing streak, Frazier created internal competition during Thursday's practice. Coaches manufactured a face-off between the offensive starters...

Play Grossman, bench Lloyd Week 16

Is it championship week? Or do you play in one of those ridiculous, misguided leagues that has its Fake Football Bowl in Week 17? Either way, our Position vs. Fantasy Defensive Points Allowed tool can help you to a title. As always, please remember that the players listed are mostly meant to be borderline guys, who need reasons for you to play or bench them. You won't see recommendations...

DMV: The Cost Of Benching Rex Grossman For Three Games

Would the Skins be a playoff team if they didn’t bench Rex? Probably not, and I’m glad they took a look at Beck, but it may have cost them a game or so. [SB Nation D.C.] Shanahan thinks Lorenzo Alexander should be a Pro Bowler. [The Insider] This year’s Skins are the most no-name Skins. [City Desk] Caps beat Nashville 4-1 at home as the Young Guns went off. [Japers' Rink...

Time for Giants Defense to Man Up

Enough is enough. It's an issue that's been highlighted on this Giants blog again. And again. And again.And again.And again.  The Giants Tampa 2 defense seems to get a bit more porous with each passing week. For whatever reason, this team's personnel is not built for zone coverage. Whether it be through constantly biting on play action fakes or just sheer inability...

Paid leave for Cook not popular with Vikings players

We’ve written before about the dysfunction in Minnesota this season. Defensive players are ignoring coaches. The front office and coach Leslie Frazier disagreed on Donovan McNabb. Getting rid of Brad Childress has reduced drama, but seemingly only pushed it under the surface. The latest issue to bubble up: Players and possibly Frazier weren’t happy about…

During the season, we head over to the opposing side and look in on the game chatter in preparation for that week’s matchup. This week we’re checking out what the Vikings and the Minnesota media are saying about the Redskins. The media says… “This might be the week the Vikings...

Is Tim Tebow the Best-Worst Player or The Worst-Best Player?

There are many narratives this year in the NFL. Which is no different from any other year. There’s always one main story the networks slam down the throats of their viewers and since there is no Brett Favre in 2011 to help shoulder the load, it seems like the narratives are lasting longer and taking up more time for the talking heads. Tim Tebow, unfortunately, is this years Brett...

Forget this season, Bears have big issues to sort out in 2012

Whether it’s Rex Grossman for Kyle Orton or Craig Krenzel for Jonathan Quinn, a new starting quarterback usually elicits an automatic wave of enthusiasm and hope among Bears fans. But the likelihood that Josh McCown will replace Caleb Hanie for the game against the Packers at Lambeau Field on Sunday...

Green Print: Jets' keys for Saturday

The Giants’ pass coverage has been abysmal. Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and Tony Romo carved the Giants up. Rex Grossman kept converting third downs. There have been plenty of open receivers over the last month against the mostly zone coverage employed by defensive coordinator Perry Fewell.
