Rex Grossman talks "Sexy Rexy," greatness
Donovan McNabb has played 16 games once in the last six seasons. Of the other quarterbacks on the Redskins' roster, one was undrafted, and another has been on the team for about a week.
So, if you were playing the odds, you'd have to guess that Rex Grossman will be under center in a game that matters at some point this year. And Rex Grossman, for the record, wants to be great.
"I want to be in that position [to], if needed, step up and play great," he told Fox 5's Dave Ross. "Not just ok and serviceable. I want to play great. I've started a lot of games in this league, I've been to the Super Bowl, I've done a lot of good things, but I can take my game to the next level. And that's what I'm trying to do, worry about myself. And if needed, step up and play great, not just good."
Sounds good. No no no, sounds great.
Really, though, I wanted to watch this Fox 5 video for the part at the end, when Ross asks Grossman about his nicknames. Maybe you've seen some of the Internet blog Web site pages that have had some fun with Grossman's nicknames over the years. I'm guessing Grossman has, too.
"You know, I don't like talking about it," Grossman said with a bashful grin when asked about his nicknames. "I hear Sexy Rexy. Maybe it's sarcastic."
So Ross asked Grossman if his wife calls him that.
"She does, a little bit," he said. "Yeah, she definitely gives me that nickname. I don't mind it when it comes from her, but some of these guys calling me Sexy Rexy out here, it's a little odd."
You call it odd, I call it awesome. Every team could use one or two players nicknamed Sexy. Now the Redskins have theirs.
Also, Grossman believes the Redskins offense is talented.
"I think this offense is explosive," he told Ross. "We've got a bunch of talent on this offense....It's gonna be fun. One thing that Kyle [Shanahan] knows how to do is get wide receivers wide open and score in a hurry. so it's gonna be an exciting offense....You can tell just looking out there, all the talent. We are a really talented team. There's gonna be some talented guys cut. You know this season there's gonna be all the players you need to make all the plays on the field."
