Rex Grossman – 3000 yards and 25 TDs in 2011?

Now, I know some of my readers (Jonesy), think I’m smoking the crack pipe. However, I’m a big believer in the ways of the Shanahan. Mike Shanahan is fiercy competitive and loves wrinkles. He was incredibly successful in Denver and knows how to get the most out of his players. The problem children are gone – Haynesworth and McNabb. Mike was able to nab Stallworth in free agency and Jabar Gaffney  in a trade. Gaffney put up 875 yards, 65 catches, and 2 TDs. Granted, I was high on Gaffney last year and TREMENDOUSLY disappointed. However, this article isn’t about Gaffney — It’s about Sexy Rexy!

Rex Grossman  proved that he  can still play. After benching McNabb last year he threw for 322 yards, 4 TDs and 5 picks against Dallas. Grossman is your prototypical “system” quarterback. This is the type of QB that the Shanahans love. He won’t question the play calling and does have greater accuracy on the short throws then DMac. Adding a steady stable of receivers will only help to improve this offense. Santana Moss (90 catch receiver) and Gaffney (65 catch receiver) on the left and right. Add to that Stallworth a speed receiver and the Redskins can suddenly stretch the field. This receiver core is substantially improved from a 42 y/o Galloway and an underachieving Anthony Armstrong.

QBs in the Shanhan system thrive and shockingly enough I truly believe Grossman might be the sleeper in this year’s fantasy draft. No one last year thought that Cassel would put up 3100 yards and 27 TDs. Just as Cassel came out of left field so will Sexy Rexy. I know, I know Cassel was good when Brady went down. However, no one could have predicted that he would be as successful as he has been leaving the coveted NE system.

Editor’s note: I’ll be internetless this w/e as I’m camping in the land of the lost. I will be back Monday morning to break down the final free agency signings. On a side note I think Chad Ochocinco’s value just tripled. If anyone can keep that jackass in check it is Bill Belichick. That man has got the touch with psychos…

    I agree, Rex Grossman’s time to shine. He threw for over 300 yards two out of three games last season and he’s due another shot. He led the Bears to the super bowl with like 22 career starts. He’s going to be killing defenses if we can protect him and continue to progress with the running game.

  2. Jon Whitfield says:

    I’d say Anthony Armstrong played well last season, more overachieving than underachieving.

  3. The Fantasy Flukie says:

    Either way Armstrong has no fantasy relevance. ppl that grabbed him in a dynasy or keeper league should feel free to drop him. The best he was gonna get was last years numbers, very pedestrian — 4 receptions, 871 yrds, 3 TDs.

    Shanahan is known for his successful running game. Not because of stars RBs but because of his blocking schemes. Doesn’t matter who is running the ball for WAS, they will be successful as Shanahan gets the O-line he needs. Washington will be a surprise this year and dare I say a wildcard team — Rex Grossman may have been a fantasy whipping boy in the past but this year will be different!

  4. […] Beck — Yes, I’m the guy that wrote that Rex Grossman will have 3000 yards and 25 TDs. That was an epic fail with regards to fantasy insight. However, the logic was not as flawed as you […]
