Rex Grossman On New Offense

The Insider had a feature on Rex Grossman’s comfort level with the transition to a new team and a new offense — the bad news for him is that Donovan McNabb will be the starter, the good news is the offense is pretty much the same as it was in Houston. He said of McNabb’s transition:

“I know from going through several offenses in the league it’s hard to forget an offense and you kind of try to revert back to what you’re used to. He’s done a great job. I haven’t heard him say, ‘Oh that’s just old habit for me.’ He hasn’t said that at all and he seems to be picking it up great.”

And because Grossman filled in as backup QB for his offensive coordinator last year, he has an incling of what to expect this year in the Redskins revamped offense:

There’s a lot of two tight end sets in this offense, we’re going to feature both tight ends. They’re both extremely good receivers and can catch the ball in a lot of different areas and I see them running most of the routes that all the wide receivers run so to have that luxury will spread out the offense a little bit.”

Two tight end sets are great, but because Chris Cooley in particular has proven to be such a great receiver it may not look ALL that different from what the Redskins have been doing for the past several years in that regard.  Still, it does provide a ton of options to the QB when you have 2 talented receivers, 2 talented receiving TE’s, a RB that can catch out of the backfield, and an O-Line that can contain the rush so everyone can get out into a route… should make for a very dynamic season on offense for the Redskins.
