Vince Gray Would Stick With Donovan McNabb

Rex Grossman, Redskins savior?

Redskins fans, do you think the team has lost its mind benching quarterback Donovan McNabb in favor of the hapless Rex "Sexy Rexy" Grossman? Well, so does your next mayor.

After a news conference today where Almost Mayor Vince Gray introduced some new appointees to his administration, he was asked by reporters what he thought of the Skins' decision. Gray did not hold back:

"How do you sign a guy for five years for what, almost a $50 million contract and then sit him down—for Rex Grossman? Ha, ha. Rex Grossman is gonna start? Did you see his one play!? He was the baloney in a sandwich, and..." At this point, Gray stumbled over his words trying to describe the folly involved when McNabb was benched during the last minutes of a game against Detroit, and Grossman fumbled the game away in his first play. "You got me going, guys—the Redskins still had a chance to win that game!"

Gray doesn't think Grossman is all bad: "Rex was a great college quarterback, okay—I'll leave it at that."

In a somewhat interesting twist, Gray said McNabb's father, Sam McNabb, had dropped by his office to say hi and to promote his charity work. Gray said Sam McNabb recently called to follow up, and Gray had planned on calling him back. "I'm gonna call him back today," Gray said with a chuckle.

When pressed on how Gray feels about the team's owner, Dan Snyder, Gray went back from being a fan to a politician.

"I'm not going to comment on his stewardship," Gray said. LL asked him to comment not as the mayor-elect, but as the "huge fan" he says he is. But Gray saw right through that one: "Yeah right, I'm just an average guy walking down the street, right?"

Too bad for Gray Snyder (a Maryland resident) can't vote in the District's 2014 election!

    IM JUST GLAD REX WAS IN A BEARS UNI WHEN THAT PIC WAS TAKEN BECAUSE THATS WRONG ON SO MANY LEVELS.

    A PIC OF MCBADD IN THAT POSTION WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE ACCURATE BECAUSE IF HE DOESNT START THIS SUNDAY HE WOULD BE THE ONE GETTING FUCKED (ALONG WITH US SKINS FANS 'CAUSE REX IS NOT THE ANSWER).

    SUDERMAN YOUR JOB OFFERS MUST HAVE BEEN LIMITED TO TAKE A GIG IN DC KNOWING YOUR LOVE FOR THE COWBOYS BUT AS I THINK ABOUT IT COWBOYS FANS ARE A BUNCH OF IDIOTS ANYWAY SO IT REALLY DOESNT SURPRISE ME NONE.

    Gray needs to talk about why he's sticking with Wilmot and other transition deadbeats before he talks about why the skins should (or shouldn't) start McNabb.

    Gray is sticking with Wilmot because Lorraine Green and Sharon Pratt are telling him to. Funding over facts seems to be a deciding factor into who is respected in the Gray Administration.

    Peter Nickles may have made mistakes in his career, who hasn't however, he is doing what is right for this city and the taxpayers where Mr. Wilmot is concerned.

    You thought you elected Vince Gray Mayor and in fact you have re-elected Sharon Pratt Deputy Mayor and elected Lorraine Green Mayor. They are running this city now.

    Vince Gray is sitting in a corner overmedicating with his psychotropic drugs to ease his alcohol recovery and multiple personality disorder.

    Again, Wards 1, 2, 3, and 6 got it right but you will all see or are you seeing already.

    Seems like TH and Hypo are playing tag team with their back to back posts.

    Is this another romance blooming? LOL

    @crazy: they are nothing more than recycled Fenty-drone nutcases.

    DC Dem: I was starting to think you might be a serious person based on several recent posts. But if you support Wilmot (and Gray keeping him on the transition team), you're a fool.
