D.C. Sports Bog:
Since the backup quarterback is always a town’s most popular athlete, we are now, unbelievably, seeing a small wave of support for Rex Grossman. I’ll admit to feeling a few Rex pangs myself on Sunday. Actual Redskins fan J.P. Finlay felt more than a few. He writes:
Rex gives the Redskins a chance to win. With Beck under center, the Redskins have no chance....When a player’s ceiling can best be measured at mediocrity, that player does not belong on the field. Beck has never won a game as a starter. Rex Grossman has been to the Super Bowl. Let’s stop kidding ourselves here.

Actor Mickey Rourke talks about his love for quarterback Rex Grossman during an interview for his new film “Immortals”. Kevin McCarthy conducted the interview in Los Angeles on Sunday October 30th, 2011
I don’t actually know what a trainwreck with balls means. I don’t think its really a saying or makes any logical sense. Except when someone is talking about Rex Grossman...
Plenty of quarterbacks in the NFL have gone through up-and-down careers, but few have had to deal with the roller coaster that Rex Grossman has faced. To say that Grossman’s NFL career has seen its fair share of ups and downs would be an understatement. Rex has been in the league since 2003 and reached [...]
And yet another reason to support freeing Rex Grossman: Mickey Rourke’s spot-on assessment of the Skins QB.

No, Rex Grossman didn’t pass his bout of pneumonia on to his teammates.
Instead, Brian Orakpo has backed up his stellar commercial debut with two encore performances.
First, we have a healthy dose of Scrabble in the park:
Funny thing about that teacup, is that it would look like a mug if anyone else was holding it.
And too bad “Geico,” is a proper...

Mike Shanahan has been the head coach of the Washington Redskins for 23 games.
During that time, he’s utilized three different quarterbacks — Donovan McNabb, Rex Grossman and John Beck.
Because I’m apparently a masochist, I went back and crunched the numbers those three gentlemen racked up during their time with the Shanahan clan, [...]
STATISTICAL ANALYSIS | In light of Sunday’s shutout at the hands of the Bills, I could write all about how badly the Redskins struggled — how many sacks they allowed, how unsuccessful their running game was, how ineffective their receivers were. I could write about how John Beck played compared to Rex Grossman’s previous outings, or about how new acquisition Tashard Choice...
MARK POTASH: Rex Grossman’s biggest flaw was that he was only at his best in a bubble. That Jay Cutler is more resilient and better at thriving outside of his comfort zone is unquestioned. Now Cutler needs to elevate his game in the second half of the season.
When the world's ballsiest train wreck calls you "a train wreck with balls," you know you're doing something right, Rex. [Nerd Tears] More »
Somehow, in a week that saw both Redskins fans and Mickey Rourke embracing Rex Grossman, the weirdest Redskins story of the week did not involve a disgraced former quarterback. No, it involved a disgraced former lobbyist.
Yes, that’s right, Jack Abramoff has a Redskins connection, and was a FedEx Field suite holder, which he detailed in his new book. Via TPM via Huff Post:
Kevin Durant reportedly threw 4 TD passes playing flag football recently. If that’s true it would be more than current Redskins starting quarterback John Beck (1) and almost as many as Rex Grossman (6). We got to see LeBron James in pads when he practiced with his old high school team a few weeks [...]
