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".

    • The season used to be 12 games. Not too many fans add a "yeah, but" in todays arguments.  Just saying.  1947-1960  12 games 1961-1977  14 games 1978 to present  16 games My main concern is the injury factor?  Most of the time the teams that have less injuries are the ones who do better in the playoffs. Injuries play a huge factor for every team.  Doing away with one pre season game does not help in that regard. All pre season games do is help reduce the roster down from 90 to 53 plus a 10 man practice squad. Those same results could be gotten with team scrimmages. Pre season games are played to make money for the NFL, not much of anything else. 
    • Forgot about that one do you remember the Elway trade I no he did not want to come to the Colts at that time they where in Baltimore. Irsay's father was in charge then 
    • Well if you are 1 out of say 4-8 teams interested in Ertz services would you rather give up a 5th round pick or so in one of the worse and most unknown drafts in NFL history or take a shot that you will be the one to get his services? Or a pick in 2022 even which i think the Eagles are more interested in. I think a few of those teams might think the trade might be the better option if you feel he is a big upgrade on a team that only needs a few pieces to get to the next level. Small price to pay to be sure your the one who lands him. There is no lock where he would go if he hit the FA market. hes from California and two teams are looking for his services from that area.    As for the trade not happening yet, i think you can look at it a different way. if they were going to just release him, they would have done that already. they already tech released Alshon and DJax.  I think thats more of the Eagles putting a hold on a trade. Rumor is there was teams that spoke with the Eagles about a offer just a few weeks ago. Hawks, Rams, Chargers and Colts. I think the Eagles are looking to wait since they have plenty of time till June 1st to make a move and could drive up a price if more teams dont get a TE they want in the draft or FA. As mentioned before I think the Eagles would rather have a 2022 pick as well so it doesnt force them to trade him before this draft. So there is no rush. 
    • This was approved last year before they lost the fans in the stands.    For season ticket holders like myself, this is a great thing. the 4th preseason game is worthless and season ticketholders are forced to pay for all preseason games. This now takes away 1 preseason game every other year and adds a meaningful game. As a season ticketholder I think this is a move in the right direction and would like to see this go to 18 games and only 2 preseason games which is the rumor that the NFL is looking to go to in the next CBA. 
    • I agree on the money side but not the trade. Personally I feel like teams know he will be cut so why waste a draft pick. Teams will sit and wait or else I feel like the trade would have happened already.
