Skins Going with Grossman as Starting QB Sunday vs Giants

Rex Grossman will start for the Washington Redskins on Sunday according to Jason La Canfora of NFL Network. The decision was made over the weekend.

Grossman and John Beck had been battling for the starting job this preseason. Grossman, a nine-year veteran who led the Chicago Bears to the Super Bowl in 2006-07, has career totals of 7,081 passing yards, 40 touchdowns and 40 interceptions.

Grossman said in early August he thought the Redskins were due for a breakout season.

“We’re fine being the sleepers right now,” Grossman said in an Aug. 9 interview with Comcast SportsNet. “You know, we’re just waiting in the wings, ready to take over the NFC East.

“Nobody’s talking about us. That’s right where we want to 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 East.”

    He does have dental insurance right? Looks like the REDSKINS will fix the o-line last on this team. I have a little confidence in WILLIAMS, LICHTENSTEIGER, MONTGOMERY, CHESTER, and BROWN. No confidence in COOK, LOCKLEAR and SMITH. They need a vet back-up for the interior line. Somebody’s gonna’ be hurt right away and this line will be a shambles.
    GROSSMAN at Q-B. I’m sure, BECK did everything except gift-wrap the position for him.

    I say the hunt continues in the front office for a QB……ANDREW LUCK seems to be in favor. How the ALLEN-SHANAHAN trio engineer that task I don’t know, but they better upgrade that o-line if they want to keep him healthy.
