This is who I expected. Grossman has experience in the playoffs and as a starter. I am happy Beck had the fortune of receiving coaching from a great QB developer as Shanahan to show he can be an effective player. Hopefully he's in the league as long as Ty Detmer.

I expect both to start multiple games this season.

Beck's last chapter is far from written.

I agree with The Rev, it's Grossman for now and whether he holds the starting job for the season or not, will largely depend on his performance and the w's

I thought Beck played well to be the starter. In fact, either one could've been named the starter and nobody would've biatched much about it...

I have a weird feeling that Grossman will have a good year.

He won with Cutler a vast majority of the time when the defense allowed 21 points or fewer.

Using the same caveat....Orton/McD were 9-2.

You really think the Skins can win 8 this year? I think they'll be picking top 5 and almost certainly top 10.

No I think they will win 5-7. Just talking about shanny's ability to win 8 is amazing.

Playoffs? Playoffs? You talkin' playoffs? I think I need a You Tube clip inserted here.



Redskins will NOT be going to the playoffs this year. They are battling to not come in last place in their division. I see So Cal has been drinking a little extra of the Shanny Juice this morning. His ability to get 8 wins is when you expect 10 wins. 8 wins for the Skins would be like us getting to 8 wins....progress.

If they pick top 5 and are within striking distance for Luck...

With the young defensive pieces they have in place, along with a Shanahan offense and Luck, that's writing a dynasty, imo.

Very well could be the start of one.

Shanny, somehow, finally figured out how to build a D.

The Skins are going to be NASTY on D this year. Bringing in Josh Wilson at corner, Cofield at DT and putting Orakpo at 3-4 OLB is going to be hard to defend. Kerrigan should be OK.

If Shanahan got Luck it would be bad news for the NFL.

C'mon, man. That Browncos garbage was an embarrassment, and don't get me started on the draft picks.

Someone in Washington is telling Shanny what players to go after.

If he can hold on to Haslett he should be good to go.
