  1. Sally Jenkins article about Rex Grossman was a really good one I think and I would recommend clicking the link to read it. I have also been struck listening to Grossman’s comments that he doesn’t really seem to accept responsibility for his shortcomings with the idea of improving … therefore he’s not getting better at the areas where he needs to (i.e. protecting the football).

    I am a Redskins fan that has defending the team and Shanahan but it is a bit alarming that they were so comfortable rolling with him when he had that character trait. First, McNabb — who was dug in and wouldn’t change and then Grossman — who was dug in and wouldn’t change.

    If this coaching team is allowed to continue next year (and I hope that they are, because the team is getting better incrementally and can continue to improve with a better QB and more O Lineman), they really need to focus on getting a QB who is “coachable.” I have defended Shanny in the past but he has to be able recognize a players character as well as his arm strength moving forward.

  2. The Bills get tagged in every LA stadium post. But they only get a one liner for a possible $100 million renovation to the stadium, which is tied to renewing the teams lease. Hmmm
