Wed, 19 Oct 2011|
CSN Washington dot com. Hit -- -- in the lunch box live presented by The Washington Times I am John are joined by CSN Washington dot com's Kellie Cowan. And today is the day that we get to know -- the Redskins starting quarterback will be it is. John -- capitals are five and I'll NBA labor talks went sixty hours yesterday none of that matters. Because it's all John -- today that Kelly has been monitoring the CSN Washington dot com FaceBook page for fan reaction. It seems like it's pretty obvious when -- NC it's. Pretty pro back I'm angry today John -- there Ivan how we should be talking about the high flying. Cab won't -- Clemens with Shanahan. Okay because. This is such as the burden that you and suffer as a journalist you have to talk about. John back when He is thrust into your place in the -- capitals are pushed right off the screens -- And what do you see in about back. -- people if I had -- people are loving that people think it's the next coming people think it's finally there Redskins time. On -- drinking the cool laid out there having a lot of people before the season even started Thomas T He should've started the first game of the season Lotta people want to see back from the start. I don't know what it is that -- consuming out there but perhaps I'm just not getting any of it because I don't see with these people have been saying. I think everybody should have known coming into it said. They were starting with a backup quarterback at the at they're starting position who beat out John back for the starting position He had a fair shot and it's true so it's not. Like as as dreadful as Rex has been He was the guy who got the the fair shake against back in training camp and this is the guy that they determined it was better now. Here in the Shanahan defense there's no way you can viewers and Rex Grossman -- -- -- a lot this morning but Grossman. Leading the league in interceptions. A stat. Nerdy stat I'd like it's even more -- and under sanctions and an interception percentage is the ratio no exceptions to attempts and Grossman is by. Are the worst that'll put He -- He is of that and I are okay I'll give you got because He is about a hundred yards in the -- and Rex Grossman I might be able to get a good luck you're on your home. Knock yourself out all remain on this lonely island and you can go to back -- not -- I'm gonna be either I don't live either of those places I just let me see -- you're pulling -- -- that on this island. I think we're pulling the trigger a little too soon on back. I land on Grossman and on back. Grossman is you know league leader and a league leader and I and he's -- he's pretty good company the other ones on that list Cam Newton tied. -- the rookies -- pretty let me finish Michael all right fine now you can. Drew Brees is a good quarterback Tom Brady is a good quarterback both of those guys are among the best in football like that is a -- and I don't -- anything is still look like it don't winners. Cam Newton is still learning how to play football in the NFL Sosa and Cam Newton also has I think about seventy more pass attempts on the year than Rex so Rex has been just as bad as Cam Newton an interception department while playing less football because the Redskins have been running the ball so much. And this is a guy who's supposedly you're veteran studying presence who's playing like a rookie now to even forget about the slings and. About anything because I don't think they're jacked up and -- yeah I know when people try to make them out of 40 He turned back into a pumpkin guess what against the because He never was saying He was not pumpkin in anything really have to be a Groton -- in a group to come toward a bumpy. Ugly -- people -- I don't know being a little -- the thing I know what Gordon is gonna ruin it looks like now here's Grossman has grossed an is. Know that girl that -- a lot of fun with that the bar all night and was playing in just having a great time. But that's what. The lights just turned on the bar is no longer serving alcohol and the band stops playing and look we're just sitting next year. A lot of good times does that analogy I just never went -- libraries because it wasn't messing -- -- it with everything around at everything around the Redskins with going right. To make them three in one despite their. Rex Grossman is -- go toward what what sort of bizarre. Fruit or vegetable would you compare John back to. I don't know yet I wasn't pleased with what I thought I don't know I'm so upset okay -- Aside from the excited to -- I was flying -- I don't know if they're just because they're up to the best start in franchise history doesn't mean we get to write about them we're excited about two mediocre quarterbacks. That's what we do want yogurt it really nice way to put it John -- a really nice way to -- it when you have when -- solidly these younger managed that I put up on Saturday in my flag football leagues. No not proud of that but I make my hand tackle those type of person who should. She's not Mack Brown is the person who has the time to keep those stats that that should be the -- up front. We do know what John Beck is capable of eight of fifteen after coming in it for Rex Grossman He is thirty years old it's not like he's gone now if this guy is a veteran he's old. He would not six games. As an NFL quarterback He 56% completion percentage one touchdown two interceptions but. The most interest things that I've found five games in Miami his last start was in Miami back in 20075 games of Miami gets fumbled the ball seven times out so if you are sick -- Rex Grossman turning the ball over. Just wait -- you see John Beck turned it over it in a little bit of a different way now. -- all the more mobile. I'll give -- not be dancing around a little bit but this isn't -- -- -- pretty much as -- went on in Denver that article do not get confused He hasn't been hot since He not abundant life he's not firing up the team around him in fact. His head receiver lead receiver league option out there not pleased but listen to what Santana Moss had just that. The car -- plan and we know that he's changed give of course Michael there have been a lot of Rex is no question I mean that's not even some of us and yeah it's okay. He has to say that I mean that's -- that's all well and yes He does you know the starters this is this these are the guys who practice together on the first team. They kind of have each other's back now wants back comes in battle could change but yeah I think his first and foremost. -- for a lot of people were asking the same things out in Denver when they made that switch. And a lot of people it had positive things to say about and Santana Moss is a good receiver I think that people give him way too much. Flak when He doesn't deserve it but what does He know about what makes a great starting quarterback in the NFL he's not a talent scout he's he's not a number cruncher. And He sailed. It's going to be difficult for whoever is absolutely because they're getting chewed up on the offensive linemen out and Williams without -- elected -- Can be really tough and be a long day for back on Sunday. You have to admit though starting quarterbacks have come -- a strange places and then. Places like John Beck has crawled out of Tony Romo was so -- no one heard of what Bill Parcells decided to bench Drew Bledsoe. Trent Green. Rich Gannon I mean guys like that. We are running out of time don't want bucks on I didn't want to close with this one lovely gem of bomb of a fact that I found on CSN Washington dot com. Last ten starting quarterbacks for -- Washington Redskins now you've included John back. Rex Grossman of course Donovan McNabb Todd Collins Jason Campbell Mark Brunell Tim Hasselbeck. Patrick Ramsey -- were full and Shane Matthews that is an unbroken chain of ten. Pretty terrible. Quarterback anyway. -- that's a good Kelly cal and I'm John Herron thank you for watching this capitals last edition of lunch box live. CSN Washington dot com.
