Rex Grossman starting for Redskins Thursday

Surprise, surprise! Looks like the quarterback competition in Washington isn't totally dead yet, as Rex Grossman was named the starter for Thursday night's preseason game against Baltimore.

It's seemed like John Beck would be Mike Shanahan's guy going forward, particularly when Beck got the nod for the Redskins first preseason game and subsequently looked quite sharp during their second week of action.

But GM Bruce Allen, speaking to Chris Russell of ESPN 980, Grossman's getting the nod Thursday.

Of course, no one actually believes that he could end up taking the starter's gig away from Beck. It would require a ridiculous performance from Grossman's against Baltimore's first-string defense and an absolute meltdown by Beck.

Both quarterbacks are expected to play with the first-string offenses, though, so there's certainly some room for comparison.

But making any, ahem, guarantees about Grossman stealing the gig would probably be as unwise as predicting a first-place finish in the NFC East for Shanny's crew.

In other more random Redskins news, the team just announced it's hosting a Madden party at FedEx Field on Monday, August 29. It'll feature giveaways and prizes and stuff and one lucky winner will get to play a game against DeAngelo Hall.

If that lucky winner reads this blog beforehand, and you use the Bears and torch Hall for several touchdowns with Jay Cutler, I'll give you an even more awesome prize.

Second paragraph is wrong.  Grossman started the first preseason game.  (http://tinyurl.com/4y58uf4)  DO YOUR RESEARCH.
