Mcnabb benched in Washington
Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan told reporters Friday that Rex Grossman will start Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, and six-time Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb has been benched for the remainder of the season, barring injury.
The shocking move isn't sitting well with the players.
"The guys are extremely pissed," one Redskins player said.
Shanahan said John Beck would be the second-string quarterback, making McNabb No. 3. Shanahan also said it was his priority to evaluate the other quarterbacks on the roster and that he already had seen what McNabb can do.
We're bringing purple back.

I saw that. Shanahan's been there one year and totally screwed up that locker room. At least Chilly took 5 years.

But Shanahan has gone nuckin' futs. Glad we didn't get him for a coach.“What takes a quarterback to the next level is not arm strength or mobility or any of that stuff. It’s the ability to play on critical downs. Manage third downs, or red zones or four-minute or two-minute situations"

Did Shanahan cause the problem?
Would McNabb play for Frazier?
We could potentially have a good thing going at a reasonable price due to Shanahan's Chilly-like behavior.It's what you learn after you know it all that counts.

McNabb has looked bad this year, but what does he have in Washington? Nada. No Rb (although Torrain shows promise but has been injured), no wr, no defense. He comes to Minnesota hes got Super Stud, Rice, Harvin, Shank and one helluva defense (assuming the Vikes can sign everyone), and hopefully Leslie Frazier....Rodgers had to hold on the ball longer, giving players like Jared "I am completely insane and will literally eat your children" Allen time to sack Rodgers again.And again. And again. Actually I think Rodgers may have nightmares about Jared Allen the rest of the year.
