Rex Grossman: There’s a 3-5% chance we make a run

As we heard from Santana Moss this week on PFT Live, Rex Grossman’s teammates have a lot of faith in their quarterback.

Grossman, in turn, has a lot of faith in his teammates. He hasn’t given up hope on this Redskins season just yet.

“You know, we’ve got about a 3, 4, 5 percent chance of getting on a run and something good happening at the end, so we’re all just out here trying to enjoy ourselves, put on a show for the fans and win,” Grossman said this week on ESPN Radio’s Doug Gottlieb Show via DC Sportsbog.

So you’re telling me there’s a chance?

Gottlieb compared the Redskins to MLB’s St. Louis Cardinals. Grossman admitted that the Redskins were an even longer shot to win a title, but Grossman remains confident his team could have fulfilled his NFC East title predictions.

“There’s a couple games that very easily we could have, maybe should have won. We’re talking about two games against the Cowboys that we probably could have or should have won. We beat the Cowboys twice, which we very easily could have, we’re leading the division,” Grossman said.

Grossman has become an easy mark for jokes, but he’s quietly played well the last three weeks. He’ll make about one head-scratching throw per game, but he hasn’t been Washington’s problem since he took back over at starter.

Who knows? Maybe the Redskins will make a run. We’ll give them roughly a 3% percent chance too.
