Rex Grossman off to rough start in Dallas

Any hope that installing Rex Grossman into the starting lineup would jolt the Redskins to immediate life have already died.

On Washington’s second offensive drive, Grossman threw behind Mike Sellers by a large margin and Cowboys safety Gerald Sensabaugh came up with an interception that he returned to the Redskins 27-yard-line. Jon Kitna hit Miles Austin for a touchdown four plays later and the Cowboys lead 10-0 in Dallas.

Grossman completed his first pass of the game, but then threw a pair of incompletions to force a punt. He hit Santana Moss on the first play of the second drive, which started on the one after the Redskins defense held on fourth down, and didn’t throw another pass before getting picked off by Sensabaugh.

The throw on the interception would look awfully familiar to anyone who remembers Grossman from his days with the Bears. The pass was so far from the target that it’s actually just a guess that he meant to hit Sellers. He could have been trying for just about anyone on the field, the massive JerryWorld scoreboard or a low-flying plane with about the same claim to accuracy.

  1. Has nobody ever watched the debacle that is Grossman play football before? Obviously, the Shanahans haven’t, because nobody with any football sense would think, or even attempt to claim he’s a better option than McNabb. Those poor excuses for coaches are just trying to deflect any blame from them, and place it on all the players.

  2. Is Shanahan TRYING to get fired in DC? And maybe return to Denver?

    Think about it. Bowlen and Shanahan again. All is forgiven.

    Just sayin…

  3. skins defense and special teams are atrocious…not all on Grossman. he has actually looked okay so far. no worse than McNabb

  4. It’s not Rex Grossman’s fault.

    He needs more weapons. His offensive line stinks. His receivers drop passes. The defense has given up a ton of points.

    Believe me, it’s not all on him.

    At least, that’s the line of excuses we’d hear being made for someone else I could name.

  5. 3 TD passes…yeah, he looks awful. who writes this crap??? is it just easy to pile on Grossman since everyone else does? idiot

  6. This is another example of media “couch hero” types recklessly stirring up emotions to satisfy their own egos. Not sure when this Josh Alper started blogging on here, but he is a donkey. Its also funny how they took this down from the lead headlines after the third quarter.

  7. Absolutely pathetic reporting here. Atleast give the guy the full game before bashing him. 4 Td’s is above and beyond what anyone thought he was capable of.

    I didn’t know teams and players in particular are capable of “dying out” in one half of football. In that case Mike Vick and the Eagles were dead after the first half against the Giants today.

    PFT reporting at it’s finest.

  8. Sexy Rexy in da heezy! What a performance!

    Wheres the “Grossman has great game” topic? Oh yeah because Josh alper is a nerdy troll
