This is such a ridiculous development. And this has nothing to do with the "race politics" of the earlier McNabb benching that some media members point to (I'm mostly speaking about PTI), followed by the weird contract-extension-but-not that McNabb got.
What I don't get is why the team would turn to Grossman. He has done nothing if not prove to the world that he cannot play. And it is not like he is a young QB with some hidden potential. He's 30. At least with John Beck, you can say the team would be looking toward the future.
This is why the team, under Snyder, is the laughing stock. And I'm not going into the "once proud franchise" territory here. They are just unbelievably bad, in terms of the team, the ownership and everything in between. It is pretty obvious that Donovan won't be back... but to start him, bench him, start him, extend him, bench him like this is just insane.
I was not a fan of getting Donovan in the first place because this team needed to get younger. Now, they are almost forced into drafting a QB early in the draft. But they only have 2 picks (a first and second unless I'm mistaken) until the 5th round. So, to fill all the holes this team has, they have 1 "high" draft pick other than the QB pick. Oh, and it isn't like the Skins have a track record of drafting well.
This is just bad. And I'm going to end with that. Happy holidays... or something.
Rex fucking Grossman.
