After Sunday’s Redskins loss, Mike Shanahan told the media that he notified his quarterbacks he was going back to Rex Grossman on Saturday.

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan shouldn’t drink before pressers

A word to Washington Redskin head coach Mike Shanahan, you really shouldn’t drink before conducting pressers. This afternoon, Shanahan told reporters that QB Rex Grossman will be the starter moving forward, but what was really disturbing to Redskin fans, was that Shanahan said that Grossman was “impressive” in the Redskins 20-9 loss yesterday. Shanahahn told reporters...

Rex Grossman Is Still the Best QB Option for Skins, Despite Loss

Rex Grossman returned to the field on Sunday, which we should all agree is a good thing for the Redskins. No, they didn’t win, but Beck not being the quarterback was positive for several reasons. Here’s three of them: 1. He actually moved the offense. And he does this by throwing to wide receivers, some of which are actually beyond 10 yards downfield. Grossman completed 12 passes...

Shanahan makes the inevitable call: Redskins going back to Grossman

This week, the Titanic's deck chairs will form a triangle. Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan once said that he was staking his reputation on the quarterbacking acumen of Rex Grossman and John Beck.

Rex Grossman to Start for the Redskins

According to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network, quarterback Rex Grossman will start today against the Dolphins in place of John Beck. This move makes a lot of sense for the Redskins,  since the offense has been sstagnant with Beck at the helm. I believe Grossman is in the position now,  that if he can [...]

First Quarter Fakeouts

AP Image The Redskins employed a bit of trickery in their pregame lineups, waiting until the last minute before announcing that Rex Grossman would start at quarterback in place of John Beck, and linebacker Perry Riley would start in place of Rocky McIntosh. Both surprise starters had a shaky start on their respective first drives, with Grossman going three-and-out with a sack, and...

Out Of The Chute: Cowboys at Redskins

Every week during the season, we’ll scout out the Cowboys next opponent. This week, that opponent is the Washington Redskins. The Opponent: The Washington Redskins, aka Danny Snyder's Romper Room Record: 3-6 The Line: Cowboys by 7.5. On the road. Not fun, even when you get to face Rex Grossman.

Beck Benched; Rex To Start

Just when you thought John Beck was going to get the chance to beat his former team -- and win his first game in the NFL -- there's word that he's been sent back to the bench in favor of Rex Grossman.

Redskins-Dolphins Winners & Losers

Handing out labels after Skins games. Today, a 20-9 depression-fest in Miami. Winners Ryan Kerrigan — 2 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, 5 tackles. Continues to look like a terrific first-round draft choice. Rex Grossman — Sure, he threw 2 interceptions and couldn’t muster a touchdown. But Grossman got back on the field, moved the team, and generally looked more like an NFL quarterback...
