Prior to the game vs the Dallas Cowboys, I laid the numbers out, and mentioned that perhaps Grossman wasn't the best chance for this team to go forward with. At least for today, I was wrong. The line protected Grossman, and he got the job done.

Rex Grossman, starting for the Redskins today, went 25-for-43 with four touchdown passes, two interceptions (a last-ditch effort at the end of the game for the second) and a lost fumble. 

The defense gave up 434 yards on the day, so we can probably blame it for this game being taken away from Grossman. Even while being sacked five times on the day, Grossman still gave this team a chance to win against the resurgent Cowboys.

Kudos to Grossman, Coach Mike Shanahan, and the Redskins offensive prowess...for today. As for the Redskins defense, shame on you. 

You heard it first from me. I was wrong.
