Grossman Ready To Mentor Rgiii


Recommended Posts

"I know they're going to draft a franchise QB," Grossman told ESPN 980 on Saturday night, via ProFootballTalk.com. "If I'm on the team, I'm gonna help out that guy get up to speed, but I'll also be ready to play. I'm gonna be a good soldier, and I'll be busting my butt to help him out."

I think the last thing they need is Grossman mentoring a young rookie. He is going to teach him how to blow games when they are on the line.

I think the quote is great... because it sounds an awful lot like Shanahan made it clear to Rex that he's already second on the depth chart. Rex as a mentor won't be terrible, either. He knows the offense well enough and its not like he can pass on his severe physical limitations and lack of field vision to RGIII (unless it's caused by some sort of as yet undiscovered disease in which case I will weep).

To Grossman's credit, it is actually possible to be better at mentoring a subject than actually performing just like great performers can be terrible mentors.

As the old sayin goes "those who can, do. Those who cant, teach".

    • IMO he was not head and shoulders ahead of Manning. He was on better teams.  Manning set the table for Brady and offensive coordinators in todays NFL. He changed the game. 
    • Darius Leonard would probably be cheaper on the tag than if they extended him now.
    • Super Bowl 15. Jim Plunkett (MVP), 3 TDs Super Bowl 18. Jim Plunkett (Marcus Allen), 1 TD Super Bowl 20. Jim McMahon (Richard Dent), 0 TDs Super Bowl 22. Doug Williams (MVP), 4 TDs Super Bowl 25. Jeff Hostetler (Ottis Anderson), 1 TD Super Bowl 26. Mark Rypien (MVP), 2 TDs Super Bowl 35. Trent Dilfer (Ray Lewis), 1 TD Super Bowl 37. Brad Johnson (Dexter Jackson), 2 TDs Super Bowl 47: Joe Flacco (MVP), 3TDs Super Bowl 52: Nick Foles (MVP), 3 TDs   Here are some average QB's who won the Super Bowl.  Great supporting casts.
    • If they're looking at the absolute "must re-sign" players coming up ( Leonard, Smith, Q), and also want to make a splash in FA, I can see a restructure for a player they expect to be here for a while, such as Kelly. The cap room could get awfully small in a hurry under the above scenario. A little breathing room is a good thing.   
    • No...but I would have done that move for the two QBs drafted after him. We would just have to assume that Ballard is not Ryan Pace and that he wouldn't draft Tribuskaye.   But of course it's a gamble. Addressing QB is a challenge nearly all teams must face. And it's what separates teams. That's what made KC a perennial playoff team that would lose on WC weekend into the #1 team in the NFL. Or takes a perennial 8-8 team like BUF and makes them into a team that can compete with a team like KC.    Trading (with conditions) for a QB coming off a terrible season is a gamble as well. It's just less of a gamble because Reich knows Wentz and because of a perceived lower cost...and because they can bail pretty quickly. Which is exactly why it's a half-measure. They know they aren't committing to Wentz any further than the first 75% of next season. I can understand the appeal of that...but with a position like QB...I am not convinced it will get them where they want to go.   But we will just have to see it play out.
