I said it before and I’ll say it again: under no circumstance would I put Rex Grossman into a ballgame over Donovan McNabb thinking Sexy Rexy gives my team a better shot at winning. The only way I’d make that move were if the object of the game were to commit turnovers and score the least amount of points. If that’s the case, then Rex is your guy. But it’s not, so Mike Shanahan makes no sense in his thinking. He’s mentioned conditioning issues and practice habits as the latest reasons why he pulled McNabb late in the game against Detroit. Whatever his deal is, his actions haven’t made a lot of sense.
That’s no problem however for Terrell Owens, who pounced on his opportunity to criticize McNabb on his T.Ocho Show on Versus:
“Well, I don’t really want to start anything but I did play in the Super Bowl and there were rumors where he couldn’t get our two-minute offense going at the end of the game. I’m just saying.”
“This is a situation where Mike Shanahan he sees these two quarterbacks on an everyday basis. We’re talking about training camp, minicamps, OTAs, things of that nature,” Owens said. “He’s had a chance to observe. And you know we have these one-minute, two-minute and four-minute situations going into ballgames. So obviously this is a part of their package where he felt Rex Grossman gave his team the best chance to win at this stage of the game.”
