Sexy Rexy, don't ever leave us again

LANDOVER, Md. -- This is the Rex Grossman that fans of the Chicago Bears came to know and loathe. Sexy Rexy, throwing the ball where only the most brave, the most confident, the most ridiculous would throw it.

Getting intercepted. Again and again and again.

And again.

Kurt Coleman of the Eagles picked off Grossman three times in three quarters, being deprived of the chance at a fourth pick by Redskins coach Mike Shanahan -- who replaced Grossman with John Beck in the fourth quarter of this 20-13 Eagles victory.

This was the Grossman fans around the NFL figured we'd they'd see since the Redskins replaced Donovan McNabb in the preseason with the former Bear. But it's not the Grossman we saw through four games, with Grossman playing under control and leading the Redskins to a surprising 3-1 start. His quarterback rating through four games: a modest 78.7.

His quarterback rating in Game 5? A chilly 23.7. Grossman was 9 of 22 for 143 yards, no touchdowns and four interceptions. Plus he had two other interceptions dropped. And he bobbled a shotgun snap. And he ran into running back Ryan Torain on a handoff.

They crowd the line because he is short.  His field vision is limited but he still throws the ball, interception.  Brees is short too and I believe he threw 3 recently, almost 4.  Brees just makes better decisions, usually.  Rex is good and thats comin' from a Bear fan, he just has to make better decisions.

He just doesn't seem strong enough or fast enough to make the plays - he makes quick decisions,  but the defense is able to play close to the line against him and squeeze everything..

Wish the Bears would have kept him.
