I started sullying this site’s waters over two years ago. One of the coolest things I learned right away: PFT posts get a reaction.
Whether the reaction is from teams, agents, league officials, media, or players, I was surprised how many people read what we wrote and cared enough to tell us how stupid we are. Unfortunately, Rex Grossman remains unconverted.
“[Rex] really has no clue when it comes to anything being said about him,” Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan told Jeff Darlington of NFL.com. “He doesn’t watch SportsCenter, and he doesn’t know what ProFootballTalk.com is. He watches HBO sitcoms.
“He distances himself from all of it, and I think that’s deliberate.”
While we wish we had Rex’s pageviews (and appreciate Kyle’s plug), Grossman’s ability to block out the noise is a good trait for a quarterback. Especially one as criticized as Grossman.
Darlington’s entire debut column at his new gig is worth a read. We don’t know if Grossman can keep this pace up, but we’re looking forward to watching him Monday night.
For years, the Redskins have been among the least compelling (and oft-televised) teams to watch. At least this 2011 squad is interesting.
