5-David Carr: The thing that immediately caught the eye was his throwing motion, which appears unorthodox - similar to a dart-thrower (others say a shot-putter). He looked very rusty on many of his passes, as he learns the system and works on timing with his targets. He badly under-threw a few deep balls. But let's cut him some slack. He's learning the system, and the weather for Tuesday's practice was atrocious. And, after all, last I checked, it was March. The real games don't begin until September.

He's supposed to be their starter?

I think he's just there to push Alex Smith.

Doesn't sound like Alex has much to worry about.

Depends on what they were looking for.

Looking for a male model type to hold a clipboard? Yes? Good signing!

Looking for someone capable of running your entire offense if your starter goes down? Yes? Yeah, not such a good signing.

They started OTAs already?

We didn't start until late May last year. Sup, Texans? What's on our calender this year?

There's a joke in here somewhere with Singletary, working his guys hard, and dropping his pants at half time. It's been too long a day to get my head around it so I'll just do this:

:hobie:

Familiar territory for Carr.

Can't we all just get along?

The haters should be satisfied (I should know) that he failed in Carolina, and failed in New York.

Let it go, let him be him, and let's watch the Texans.

I'm really more interested in what will happen with Grossman.

Why?

Why?

I think he's very talented. With a very strong arm. and still relatively young.

You can coach out stupid. You can't coach that arm, or that will to win.

I just like the kid.

Why?

Good question.

Rex Grossman's upcoming season will play out like this:

'Skins draft a young QB who is third on the depth chart. Grossman is number two because he knows lil Shanny's offense. Campbell starts just because.

Season's midpoint - Young QB supplants Campbell. Grossman goes to number three on the roster.

Next offseason - Campbell is no longer a Redskin. Young QB is the next big thing. Grossman is either their number two or just gets released.

Ends up in the AFL2 being the QB for the Shreveport Bossier Battle Wings.

You can coach out stupid.

I respectfully disagree. See: Nagle, Browning. George, Jeff. Smith, Akili.

Barksdale AFB is in Bossier City LA which is right across the Red River from Shrevevport.

Now that the 'Skins traded for McNabb you need a totally new scenario.

- McNabb starts in 2010
- Rex & Jason duke it out for the #2 spot.
- Loser of said duke-a-roo gets traded
- Skins draft a diamond in the rough guy on the 2nd day or maybe next year to groom as the starter when McNabb hangs them up.

Yeah, I thought about that.

I suppose the loser of the Rex and Jason duel ends up with the Bossier Shreveport Battlewings.
