Battle of 1 and 2? More Like Grossman Battles for #2

Posted By Mercedes Green On Aug 27 2012 @ 9:42 am In Washington Redskins | No Comments

I’m not going to analyze Luck vs RG3.  2 complete different quarterbacks, different defenses, different offensive linemen, different game play and calls that can affect how each plays, however, both were impressive.  RG3 threw 11/17 for 74 yards and 1 TD.  Luck threw 14/23 for 151 yards and 1 TD.  Luck looked conservative, RG3 threw some bombs (1st play was a huge throw for an almost TD while Luck’s first calls were handoffs).

The D looked solid in the Redskins win over the Indianapolis Colts 30-17 with 4 sacks (1 for a safety) and was that Rex Grossman?  Grossman threw 8/8 for 127 yards and 2 TDs!  It’s clear that Grossman wants the #2 spot and if he plays this way again, the last preseason game will be not how RG3 plays, but how Cousins vs Grossman play.

It was also a WR competition the entire game with everyone out, including the first half kick returns being returned by Niles Paul and Santana Moss then Brandon Banks in the 2nd half.  Alfred Morris stuck out at RB which is also a position that is up in the air.

The Redskins don’t have a lot of time left between their next and last preseason game which is this Wednesday at 7PM EST against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
