Daily Slop: Trent Williams is Still Getting Better; Shanahan Talks About Snyder Not Liking McNabb Benching

Shanahan Pleased With Grossman's Performance
"I think he’d like to have that [first-quarter] interception back," Shanahan said. "We missed a block and he threw it out in the flat and should have thrown it a little bit further away. On the one fumble he had at the start of the second half, he was stepping up and sliding. I know he’d like to have that back. I thought the [interception] at the end of the game was a play you have to make regardless of the situation."

Redskins Discuss Rex Grossman And The Failed Comeback
Chris Cooley: "Rex is so fast getting in and out of the huddle. He is so intense. There is nothing laid back. He has a quick tempo and he gets us to the ball as fast as he can get us to the ball.

When he finally got into a rhythm, we got into a good rhythm."

Hail! Magazine: Trent Williams gives Redskins fans a reason to believe
"He’s going to be a really good tackle," Ware said on the eve of their rematch. "He’s very athletic. He run-blocks very well. He pass-blocks very well. He’s been improving every week. From the first time I faced him ‘til now, the little things that he had problems with, he’s corrected."

Chad Dukes: Are Washington Redskins Fans Willing To Wait To Win? - SB Nation DC
The Redskins seem to think their fanbase is too impatient to sit through a long rebounding effort, but is that really true? Would you have been willing to accept not trading for Donovan McNabb and instead using 2010 as a transitional year?

D.C. Sports Bog - Keyshawn Johnson, Ditka critique Shanahan
All of these quotes make me realize how off experts can be. Shanahan has continually defended himself that he's the only person (not the fans or media) who have seen how Grossman has practiced, and that translates on the field.
