The Redskins' issues go well beyond quarterback, but clearly, neither Rex Grossman nor John Beck is the answer.

Mike Shanahan was shut out for the first time ever in his long head-coaching career, and his defense wasn't stopping the Bills either. This is a team that was once atop of the division and has taken a free-fall. I think it's clear, neither John Beck nor Rex Grossman is the answer
Sb-nation-news-1_medium 22 19 Tale of two seasons: 3-1 start and now a three-game losing streak. Which Redskins season is really them?
Ovi_cbsports_icon_256x256_comp_v1-46x46_medium 22 18 They have big problems on offense, and it showed in a big way against the Bills. Mike Shanahan was shut out. That's the first time -- ever. Ouch.
Logo-cnnsi_medium 22 22 I've dropped the Redskins precipitously, but it's because of the way things are unraveling in D.C. on the injury front. Tim Hightower, gone. Chris Cooley, gone. Starting guard Kory Lichtensteiger, gone. Santana Moss is out for five to seven weeks, and left offensive tackle Trent Williams remains iffy with an ankle sprain. Even linebacker London Fletcher might miss a game for the first time in his 14-year career with a hammy problem. Mike Shanahan's roster simply isn't deep enough to withstand that kind of misfortune and mayhem in terms of health.

The makeshift offense that's without a quarterback isn't winning games. By the time the Redskins manage to get healthy, their season will be over.

23 The Redskins were simply embarrassed this past weekend in Toronto against the Bills. Their offense looks completely anemic, as no one even had an above average game. The offensive line is in complete shambles and Trent Williams can’t return soon enough, as the Redskins tied a franchise record in giving up 9 sacks. Their rushing attack also did nothing due to poor blocking and little creativity. The defense had been the Redskins strength this season, but for three straight weeks now they have given up 20 or more points, and can’t stop drives. The defense isn’t nearly as bad as the offense, but they are looking to be more like a league average defense at this point. One positive note from the Buffalo game is that no major players went down with serious injuries. Which is a huge win after losing 5 offensive starters over the past two weeks.
Looking like a typical trap game for the Niners this week. Let's find out if Harbaugh can channel his inner Admiral Ackbar in time.
