Mike Shanahan isn't backing down when he says he's stakes his reputation on Washington Redskins quarterbacks Rex Grossman and John Beck.
Shanahan made that statement after the first training camp practice in July.
So far, the two have yet to justify the coach's faith. Grossman was benched after committing 11 turnovers in five starts, and Beck is 0-3 since taking over.
Grossman and Beck have the two worst quarterback ratings in the NFC.
Shanahan says Beck will have to go through ''growing pains'' as he gains more experience. He also says he needs to give his quarterbacks a better ''supporting cast.''
Washington plays at Miami on Sunday.
