The Donovan McNabb benching remains, by far, the biggest and most bizarre story from Sunday. Expect it to gain some serious legs over the next few days. Some of the Redskins’ most prominent veterans are saying they were as surprised by the move as the rest of America.

Highly respected leader Phil Daniels said, according to Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan, ''It surprises me with all the comebacks (McNabb’s) had in his career ... but as players we don’t make decisions.''

Mike Jones of TBD.com reports that Daniels, along with outspoken cornerback DeAngelo Hall, said he thought at the time that McNabb must have been injured.

This is the type of situation that could cost Mike Shanahan the locker room. Shanahan has now very publicly benched his best defensive and offensive players for not being erudite in the Redskins’ system. Obviously, sitting a malcontent like Albert Haynesworth does not compare with sitting your star quarterback. But at the end of the day, players could look at both situations and decide that they’re playing for an arrogant head coach.

FYI - He has 24 game winning/come-back drives. Look it up.
More than any other QB in the league, besides Manning and Favre, and tied with Brady.
I think the more important question is - how many has Grossman had?

"IT WAS STUPID", Mike Ditka, Espn Sportscenter
"IT MAKES NO SENSE", Tony Dungy
 "WTF?" the rest of America.

The benching is offensive. It is outrageous and absurd. Shananhan, the offensive line owe McNabb and the fans an apology.

As much as I hate to see McNabb benched, I think Shanahan did the right thing. However, with Grossman at QB, that is an even worse situation.

I thought bringing McNabb would help the offense some, but he's been mediocre at best. Granted, we don't have the best offensive line, but it is doable for right now.

We need a playmaker WR, Santana Moss won't cut it as he lacks the height to go and grab the ball. Armstrong is too erratic at the moment. Dare I say...claim Randy Moss?
