Grossman: We Need To Finish Drives

With the game on the line and trailing by two points inside of a minute, the Redskins drive stalled, as it had on several occasions last night.  While some members of the media questioned the playcall in the post-game press conference, Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman defended the offensive scheme.

“Our offense is based on some passing that, in the West Coast-type of plays that we were running–y’know, long hand-offs, screens–those are passes, but they’re pretty much runs,” he explained.  “So your stats might be a little skewed as far as that’s concerned.  I dunno, you’ve got to look at it from a play-callers perspective.”

As far as one-for-three in the redzone, including one-of-two in goal-to-go situations, Grossman made no bones about his irritation with the field goals.

“I don’t know if you want me to go on and on about it,” he began.

Please do go on and on, Rex.

“We need to finish those drives and not kick field goals,” he said with emphatic arm motions.  “We’ll work on it.  We were good the first game, the second game it was closer than it needed to be for that reason, and obviously we lost because of that this week.  We’re obviously moving the ball well, and we need to finish those drives, and maybe we can put a team away earlier.”

For all of Grossman’s post-game comments and emphatic arm motions, check out the video below:

    It is time for Rex to be benched. His whole career has been categorized by one or more turnovers every game. We all know that he will be nothing more than a stop gap, mediocre NFL quarterback. No one knows what the Redskins will get with John Beck – it may be great,. horrible or anything in between, but it is time to find out.

    The Shannies need to get all of their big targets in the End Zone for all passing plays from 10 yards and in:

    Cooley and Davis, obviosly since thay are runnuing so many 2 TE sets and eschewing the traditional WCO FB.
    Use the FB- Mike Sellers caugh a bunch of TD passes in ’05.
    Use Ryan Kerrigan- had can do anything it appears and has better hands than Grossy.
    Logan Paulson- nobody would cover this “Blocking” TE.
    Use Hankerson- another big target.

    C’mon Shannies, if you’re going to keep Rex in there, try to help him out more. We all know he can’t create plays on his own.

    I love Helu, but why in the hell was Hightower on the sidelines so much?

    Great play selection Haslett. You call an all-out blitz on 3 & 21 with man to man on Dez Bryant. What the hell are you thinking?

    & to think that all you Skins fans are drinking the Grossman kool-aid. When the game is on the line, you think Grossman is the guy. Hell, his fumble was the result of him panicking. He had time if he just stayed in the pocket but no, he had to flee like the chicken that he is.

    Enjoy your record, cuz it wont last as long as you play REAL TEAMs like the BOYS!!!!!
