Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan says a quarterback is judged by wins and losses, and by that standard, Rex Grossman enjoyed a good first quarter of the season. But Grossman also acknowledges that there’s plenty of room for improvement -- by him and the entire offense.
“I think we’re right on the cusp of doing a lot of great things,” Grossman said Wednesday. “I know we can take that next step.”

The Washington Redskins are off to a very good start to the 2011 season with a 3-1 record. Their defense is doing a great job of flying around and making plays, but the offense is just doing enough for them to win. Quarterback Rex Grossman realizes the offense needs to improve in order for the Redskins to [...]
When at its best, the NFC East may be the best quarterback division in football. Most divisions have two or three viable starters at the quarterback position, but you could argue the NFC East has four. Tony Romo may be a choke artist and Michael Vick may be an excuse-maker, but when healthy they rank [...]
The last time Rex Grossman played in a football game, he went 15-of-29 for 143 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. This week, he didn't play. And somehow, over that period of time, he became, in the eyes of Deion Sanders, the best quarterback in the NFC East. The Grossman talk starts about 54 seconds in.
This is, of course, crazy talk. And although Deion didn't stutter...
Though it might seem a little unfair given the Redskins 3-1 record, Rex Grossman isn’t surprised about the number of pundits who remain convinced he’ll never amount to anything as an NFL starting quarterback.
Rather than worry about it, he’s chosen to ignore the chatter and concentrate on winning football games.
“[I’ve] been in this league long enough to realize that the...
Knock, knock. "Who's there?" asks Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman. "Golden," comes the reply. "Ms. Golden Opportunity." "Come in," Grossman says. "I've been waiting for you." He's not the only one. The fortunes of the franchise and several key players can take a dramatic uptick with a victory Sunday, when Washington ...
We all know what the D.C. media says about the Redskins, but what’s going on behind enemy lines? During the season, we’re going to head over to the opposing side and look in on the game chatter in preparation for that week’s match up.
This week we’re checking out what the Eagles and the Philadelphia media are saying about the Redskins.
The media says…
“For all the...
The most intriguing games in Week 6 of the NFL involve the NFC East. In a divisional rivalry the Eagles try to jumpstart their season against the division leading Redskins. Then, Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys travel to Foxboro to take on the high power New England Patriots. And finally, the New York Giants play host to the surprising 4-1 Buffalo Bills. Who will win? ...
Matt Ryan is supposed to be one of the NFL's rising stars at quarterback.
The ratings tell a different story.
Matty Ice is down near the bottom of the list, close to guys such as Chad Henne and Rex Grossman. Certainly, the Falcons expected more from their fourth-year quarterback than an efficiency rating that puts him 21st in the league.
Ryan will concede that he's not...
Without setting foot on a football field Sunday, the Redskins once again find themselves atop the NFC East with a little breathing room to boot.
While Michael Vick imploded in Rex Grossman-like fashion, throwing four interceptions in the Eagles’ loss to the Buffalo Bills, the Giants’ woes at home continued with a loss at the hands of a suddenly dangerous Seahawks team.
I’m not exactly sure how you measure talent in the NFL, but my hunch is that a team that’s 3-1 probably has a comparable talent level to a team that’s 1-4.
The Philadelphia Eagles’ Web site, though, does not agree. This passage comes from the site’s preview of this weekend’s game:
The Eagles take on the division-leading, you read that right, Redskins, who are coming off...
