Is the Rex Grossman era over in Washington? We will know Wednesday, when Mike Shanahan announces who will be his starting QB.

It is amazing how just one week in the NFL can completely change the fate of a season. The Redskins came into this week controlling the NFC East, but now are a game back and in the middle of a quarterback controversy. I still like this defense, and it should keep them in games late in the season, no matter who plays quarterback.

Logo-cnnsi_medium 15 10 Thanks to Rex Grossman's spectacular crash and burn, John Beck doesn't have the bar of expectation set too highly as he prepares to take over at quarterback for the Redskins this week at Carolina. We know Beck is rested, given that he hasn't started a regular-season game in the NFL since Week 14 of 2007. I actually think Beck is ready for this opportunity, and he's going to play pretty well. The real question might wind up being why Mike Shanahan let Grossman start in the first place this season?

Down the Redskins fall, as the lack of a true quarterback is catching up with Washington. Part of me actually wonders if Donovan McNabb(notes) would be a better option than either of the team's current quarterbacks.

14 The Redskins went into Sunday’s game atop the NFC East with the chance to all but knockout their hated rivals, the Eagles, from the playoff race (while putting themselves in a strong 4-1 position). Instead they not only lost, but they were beaten in all facets of the game. Two injuries wrecked their offensive line, and turned their running game into one of the leagues worst (according to YPC). A quarterback ‘controversy’ sprung up, and their defense showed zero ability to stop the run. What makes it all worse, is that game was at home after a bye week. Now the Redskins need to settle on a QB, patch together an offensive line, and figure out some way to generate a ground game, if they want to stay relevant in the NFC this year. This weeks game against Carolina becomes a ‘must win’, as Washington can’t afford to lose games like this.
Beckalicious... Here kitty, kitty, kitty 19 10 Mike Shanahan hates your fantasy team. In other news, indecision about who the go-to guy on offense was overshadowed by Rex Grossman's worst performance of the season: 9 of 22 for 143 yards and four picks. The ground game helped immensely. Except not at all.

After Sunday, John Beck has to be the new No.1 in Washington, right?
