Rex Grossman named starter for Redskins opener

Even though the Redskins quarterback battle was "wide open" as recently as the final preseason week, it was always kind of assumed that John Beck would get the job. That's just how Mike and Kyle Shanahan roll. Or not -- reports out of Washington today indicate that Rex Grossman will be named the Redskins starter.

Yes, that's right -- the man who earlier this offseason predicted that the Redskins would win the NFC East will get an actual chance to back up his prediction. According to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network, Shanahan informed the two quarterbacks of his decision over the weekend and will be rolling the dice with Grossman against the Giants in Week 1.

LaCanfora notes that the situation will be "re-assessed throughout the year" and that's the least surprising thing about this whole situation. Beck will almost assuredly get some starts at some point in the 2011 season, because not only do the Shanahans like him as a quarterback, but once the Redskins find themselves out of playoff contention, they'll want to really see what they've got in Beck to make a decision for the long term.

Rex Grossman named starter for Redskins opener

Did Grossman lose the the Superbowl for the Bears? Yes.  Is he turnover proned in big games?  Yes.  As a Bears fan, believe or not, I still think the kid can play.
I see a bit of revisionist history here..

While Grossman was one of the factors in the Bears Superbowl loss by NO means was he the only one. The Defense (secondary especially) was lackluster at best that game. Largely due to theloss of Mike Brown and pre injury Tommy Harris providing pressure up the middle.

Anyways..Grossman has always had talent but his inconsitent play has always beenhis downfall. Always liked that kid I hope he's finally put it all together for the Skins.

I know this sounds crazy but I wouldn't be surprised if he puts up some numbers this year. He's going to throw some picks and fumble every now and then, but he'll be better with the Skins than he was with Da Bears.

Grossman said they could win the division, now he'll get a chance to make that happen, although highly, highly unlikely. They didn't have much of a choice, I mean Beck, Grossman or Clemens (who has already been cut). At least Grossman has some experience. Now Kyle has to get Rex to stop throwing interceptions.

I think that I may draft the Giants Defense just to start against Grossman!!
