According to reports, Washington will start Rex Grossman at quarterback Sunday against the Cowboys over Donovan McNabb.
This is somewhat surprising.
On a conference call Wednesday, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan was asked if McNabb would start Sunday and replied, “You want to go through our whole lineup or do you want me to go through each position or do you just want to start with the quarterback?”
This just doesn’t really set well with me. At some point you have to stop disrespecting the legacy of McNabb. If you are going to replace him with someone, it should be someone who is better. I guess Mike Shanahan needed someone else to go after since Haynesworth can no longer be blamed for the teams debacles.
Shanahan said the same practice plan has been in place all year regarding the snaps between McNabb and Grossman, but this possibility has been out there for the last couple of weeks.
