It happened again Wednesday at Redskins Park. One quarterback talked about winning the starting job. The other talked about losing it.
This time it was Rex Grossman getting the special treatment, holding a news conference upstairs in the old Washington Redskins media room.
At the same time, John Beck was downstairs standing in front of his locker, dealing with another demotion.
''Well, this isn't the first rodeo that I've been through in my life,'' Beck said. ''I've gone through adversity, or being in a situation where, for whatever reason, things just aren't working.''
It's actually been a week since Beck and Grossman starting splitting first-team snaps in practice, portending the switch back from Beck to Grossman as the Redskins (3-6) search for their first victory since Oct. 2. Coach Mike Shanahan kept the change a secret until just before kickoff of the Grossman-led 20-9 loss to the Miami Dolphins, and this was the first chance to hear how Beck has dealt with the news.
