Much of the credit for the Chicago Bears' Super Bowl run of 2006 rightfully goes to their defense, but Grossman played a critical role on that team.
In his only full season as a starter, Grossman displayed a Jekyll-Hyde style of football that earned him the "Good Rex" and "Bad Rex" titles from the press. He turned the ball over frequently, but also masked that with his ability to stretch the field and create long touchdowns to deep threats like Bernard Berrian.
Now, his situation and system are vastly different in Washington, where Grossman is being coached to play within himself and manage the game.
By not doing too much and by learning from prior experience on football's biggest stage, the Redskins may not have found just a quarterback, but a leader.
