Rex N' Effect: Stats Rankings Show OLine is More to Blame than Grossman

Rex Grossman has received a lot of negative press over this week for the bad INT and worst time ever to fumble the ball. The truth of the matter is that the Redskins offense is still in the middle of the pack offensively. We slipped four spots and now rank 5th in Time of Possession (still in the green). If anyone thinks John Beck can keep our offense on the field for sustained drives, pass me the bong.   

What some fans fail to realize is that the OLine is still not playing at even a par level. A major reason people think Sam Bradford is having an off year is because of his NFL bottom completion percentage. The truth behind that stat is his WRs have dropped five balls and the Rams lead the league in QB hits with 30. The Redskins rank 8th in QB hits allowed. As we saw first hand against Arizona, bad things happen when the interior OLine doesn't hold their ground and rushers come in untouched off the edges. Rams' RT Jason Smith is statistically one of the worst Right Tackles in the NFL right now. Grossman floats passes and makes bad decision, but he's still doing the right things.

  • QBs with more INTs than Grossman (Rivers, Brady, Casssel, Big Ben, Matt Ryan, Mark Sanchez)
  • I personally like the 1st down stat (4th best in NFL). The QBs above him are Brady, Rivers, Brees, and Fitzpatrick. Extending drives keeps our defense off the field.
  • Grossman's QB Rating is higher than Big Ben, Phillip Rivers, Matt Ryan, Orton, Josh Freeman, Cutler, Cam Newton
  • Of Grossman's 113 passes, 88 of them (78%) have been to the left side of field. 25 to the right. It's anyone guess what Grossman's reads are on plays, but it's interesting none the less. Pro Football Focus chimed in that this is a REALLY bizarre stat.
