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...
