Risky Rex ravages Redskins; fall to Eagles 20-13

Whenever a quarterback controversy leads the headlines following a game – it’s never a good thing.

That was the case for the Redskins, as the signal caller who started under center for them ended up getting benched due to four interceptions – three to the same defender, Eagles safety Kurt Coleman.

Despite his poor performance, Rex Grossman had this to say following the game against the Eagles on Sunday:

“I believe in myself, no matter if the whole stadium doesn’t, the coaching staff doesn’t,” Grossman said. “Whatever the situation is, I believe in myself.”

All in all, a team that started the day atop the NFC East standings, went from maybe “we’re for real” to fans chanting “We Want Beck.”

John Beck led the offense and scored its only touchdown late in the fourth quarter of the club’s 20-13 loss to the Eagles.  I’m sure there will be plenty to talk about on Monday.

Next: 3-2 Redskins at Carolina Panthers, Sunday October 23, 1 ET.

So, who’s your QB for the Redskins?

    This posted Friday by myself.

    “……..GOOD REX for most of the game, we win by 1-3. BAD REX for most of the game, we lose by six……”

    Nuff said. Beck was jumpy as a cat. He sure wasn’t calm, cool, or collected, but he did get us in the endzone.

    What a dumb-ass!!!!!! I remember another stupid-azz REDSKIN who was just as inept spouting the same exact BS, but I can’t remember for the life of me who it was. maybe JIM ZORN…….????

    Was it me, or did I see an IGGLES player being blocked who decided as he was going down to purposly roll up the back of TRENT WILLIAMS’ leg? It sure looked intentional to me. Didn’t see the LICHTENSTEIGER injury, but that one is bad.

    Beck looked really rusty but I guess that was to be expected. He threw a few that fluttered out of his hand and even knocked the ball out of his own hand. I imagine he’ll get the majority of the snaps with the 1st team this week. Carolina is going to be tough. Anyone know the status of Trent Williams?
