Rex Grossman Is New Here, But Not New To This System

Posted by Matt Terl on June 11, 2010 – 10:32 am

I asked on Twitter the other day what people were most concerned about at practice, and the vast majority of responses focused on the installation of the offense. The offense is new to almost everyone here, so I thought it might be informative to talk to the one quarterback who has experience in the system. Rex Grossman spent last year working with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and quarterbacks coach Matt LaFleur in Houston. So while he may not know more about their system than any man alive, he certainly knows more about it than any man in the building.

“The transition’s been easy for me,” Grossman said, but acknowledged that it was a system that could take some time to learn. “I can’t really speak about any other quarterbacks,” he said, “but last year was my first year in the system and everything is just a lot easier for me now. Going through my reads and progressions and all, I just feel more comfortable with what I’m doing.” Read more »

The Redskins Four Latest Signings In Video Form

Posted by Matt Terl on April 29, 2010 – 11:01 am

The Redskins officially announced four signings this morning: veteran wide receivers Joey Galloway and Bobby Wade, and undrafted rookie free agents Logan Paulsen (a tight end out of UCLA) and Keiland WiIliams (a running back from LSU). Rather than just repost the press release — although I’ll do that too — I figured it might be nice to introduce the four new guys in video form.

Here, for example, is Wade, serving as “Globetrotter for the Night” with the Harlem Globetrotters. “This is a big game right here, this is a big point in the game,” he notes, as he prepares to make his dramatic leap from the stands to the basketball court. “You can expect some classic Bobby Wade, some big-play Wade.”

Practical experience that will no doubt come in handy during mini-camp.

Galloway’s best video — him flying with the Blue Angels when he was a Buccaneer — isn’t t embeddable, because the uploader doesn’t allow it. So here instead is an ESPN profile on Galloway as one of the three best receivers to come out of Ohio State. “You get, in my opinion, the best wide receiver in the NFL,” says a young Kirk Herbstreit, adding, “and I’m talking young wide receivers.”

He’s probably not considered a young wide receiver anymore, after fifteen NFL seasons. (In fact, Galloway started his stint in Tampa expected to play alongside a receiver who wound up not taking the field in a holdout. That receiver — Keenan McCardell — is now his position coach here.) Read more »
