Johnny Manziel is out for the year with a hamstring injury. Brian Hoyer is nursing a shoulder injury and may not be able to go on Sunday. Cleveland needs a quarterback. Rex Grossman is not that quarterback. He's busy.
DC Sports Bog's Sarah Kogod decided to go around and ask a bunch of Redskins players what a restaurant dish named after them would look like. Some of the answers she got are very funny—and you should go check them all out—but Rex Grossman's response was by far the best thing to come out of the endeavor.
For a bungling NFL franchise looking for a reason to believe, there's nothing quite like a breakout performance by a superstar quarterback. So after years of failure, Washington fans had to be delighted to see the numbers RGIII put up in his first start for the team. When you see a stat line like this—in a road game,…
This play brought the Redskins within three and they would take a 20-17 lead shortly thereafter on a 50 yard touchdown from Grossman to Anthony Armstrong.

CSN's Kelli Johnson reports: "Just learned that Rex Grossman is starting over McNabb Sun in Dallas; I'm told Redskins Lockeroom is divided and guys are extremely upset." [@kjohnsoncsn]
Visitors to Chicago's Hop Haus watering hole may be familiar with the mural honoring the Windy City's greatest sports legends. And also these goofballs.
That's what newly signed quarterback Brett Basanez seems to indicate. Or, rather, what the Bears have told him.[Mouthpiece Sports.com]
It's only July and already Bears fans are terrified. Who's going to start at quarterback: The mediocre bearded guy or the mediocre short guy? Well, even the players themselves can't decide. So they did what any reasonable, competitive football player would do...they flipped a coin. Cue the Chicago Tribune:

After Sexy Rexy Grossman's third consecutive — or fourth, or fifth, or whatever — horrific appearance last week, Bears fans are screaming for backup Brian Griese. But let's not forget: He's got plenty of baggage himself.

Things we learned this morning:
The good people at SomethingAwful threw together some inspired Super Bowl photoshop work. And because it's excellent and because I'm having a difficult time letting go of football, I cobbled together a few of my favorite into the above image... I hope they don't mind.
