Rex Grossman says the Washington Redskins will win NFC East

The last quarterback to lead--or manage--the Bears to the Super Bowl has a bold prediction for this year.

Rex Grossman, now lining up under center for the Washington Redskins, thinks his team will shock the world.

"We're fine being the sleepers right now," Grossman told CSNWashington.com. "We're just waiting in the wings ready to take over the NFC East. Nobody's talking about us, it's right where we wanna be. You look at us from top to bottom out here, there's a bunch of great players. And we don't need people saying we're the best right now. But when it's all said and done, I really feel like this team's gonna win the [NFC] East."
If Grossman wants to be a major part of the team that backs the prediction, he'll first have to win the quarterback job. He and John Beck are currently battling it out for the starting spot.

On the team's official Twitter feed, the ex-Bear released a statement after his bold claim became sports-talk fodder.

"I wasn't trying to make some kind of profound statement. I just really believe in this team."

Grossman also indicated that this Redskins club is every bit as good as the 2006 Bears.
