So Rex Grossman thinks the Redskins can win the NFC East, huh? Hey, crazier things have happened. A team quarterbacked by Rex Grossman made the Super Bowl recently. Once that happened, you can't blame Grossman for thinking he can do anything.
Here's the full quote, by the way.
"At the same time, I look around, and this offense, from top to bottom, is better than the offense I had in Chicago. The defense is gonna make a ton of strides this year. I know they are. It's gonna be fun. I know we're gonna be a good team." "We're fine being the sleepers right now. You know, we're just waiting in the wings, ready to take over the NFC East. Nobody's talking about us. That's right where we want to be. You look at us from top to bottom out here, there's a bunch of great players. And we don't need people saying we're the best right now, but when it's all said and done, I really feel like this team's gonna win the East."
So yeah, it's surprising. Except ... Rex said the same exact thing back in May. Should we really be surprised he's still saying it?
