I agree with the ego, but different reasons. He seems to go with guys he likes over guys who get the job done. How else do you explain essentially giving Campbell away for nothing of value (come on, half of fourth rounders aren't on a drafting team's roster for two years, let alone serious contributors) and signing a very well disproven Grossman because he and his son like the guy and he knows the offense? Gary Kubiak knows the offense too, and had a more successful career than Grossman, how about just signing him to play? Seriously, starting Grossman over McNabb. McNabb made a lot of mistakes on the field in his first year of the offense, but he acted with class and if you look into the stats he put up some of the best yardage per game numbers the Redskins have seen since Snyder's first year, with essentially no offensive line, no proven running back, and only one reliable receiver (who actually had the most drops of his career, but still a lower drop percentage than armstrong). Even the notion that McNabb at his worst could be less than Grossman, or that Grossman is a backup upgrade over Campbell is a shock to the mind. Only his ego could have dictated this, because there are no stats you can find anywhere that show Grossman doing anything better than McNabb or Campbell, though Grossman played behind better lines during most of his career than either of them.
