Elite QB? First, Grossman needs a diet plan

08:03 AM ET 09.28 | Rex Grossman's career reclamation project hit a snarl this past week, but the Redskins are still 2-1. So is Grossman capable of becoming elite? ... He's completing 59.6 percent of his passes and averaging 282 yards a game, on pace to exceed 4,000, and he has led a team to a Super Bowl. There is no reason -- absolutely none -- that Grossman can't kill off Bad Rex once and for all, and make game-winning plays consistently under pressure. He can start the transformation today by going on a diet. He needs to lose weight, as he admits -- and this is not a trivial point. If Grossman has an inherent limitation, it's his lack of mobility. He has no business compounding it with a knife and fork if he expects to lead the Redskins to the playoffs.

I empathize with Rex and his battle of the mid-section.

My doctor feels exactly the same about me becoming an elite member of Fan Nation.

Dagnabbit! If I had read this before I went to the caf, I would have gone for fruit instead of the bagel loaded with cream cheese.

Now I'll never become elite. Move over, Rex. You've got company.

ROTFLMAO!

He's on a "seefood"diet.

Big Ben has done just fine hauling around a few extra. Maybe if Vick had a few extra he would not be so " brittle?"

September 28, 2011  08:21 AM ET

What is it with "Fat" and "Rex"?

September 28, 2011  08:22 AM ET

If we can get DeMarcus Ware to chase him a little more, he should be fine.

Vick would like to put on a few pounds, but his competition at the buffet table is Andy Reid.

John Beck is much lighter on his feet....Just sayin.

The center is more comfortable with Beck in the shotgun, then?

Not sure about the center, but fans sure are.

Rex is managing at QB, but the team would be a lot better with a real one.

Even in interviews he seems unsure of himself, and uncomfortable.

He's ruined.
