After three quarters of horrendous play by Rex Grossman, the Washington Redskins have pulled Grossman and put John Beck in to finish the game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Grossman threw four interceptions in three quarters of play against the Eagles. He failed to make anything happen offensively while the Redskins’ defense allowed Philly to score 20 points. John Beck has stepped in and hopes to ignite the Redskins’ struggling offense. Beck was originally signed in the 2nd round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins. He lost all five games that he started for the Dolphins in 2007, throwing three INTs and fumbling 5 times, and was then traded to the Ravens in 2009 and then to the Redskins in 2010. This is the first NFL action he has seen since 2007. Now with less than 4 minutes left in the game, he has brought Washington to within 7 of the Eagles. Can this QB who no one else has been able to win with light a fire under the Skins? It should be interesting to see if he can succeed where Grossman has failed today.
