What happened to all the glowing talk about John Beck in Washington?The Redskins have apparently decided to start Rex Grossman Sunday in their opener against the New York Giants.
Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan loves the guy. Let's face it: He has major input into the decisions under head coach Mike Shanahan, his dad.
When all the John Beck-will-start talk was bubbling, a Redskins source made an interesting point to me.
If he's so good, why didn't they play him at all last year?
Good question. It was all Grossman. Beck never got off the bench after the Redskins sat down Donovan McNabb.
So now the Shanahans have decided to give Grossman the job -- for now.
It's probably the right move. But I bet Redskins fans are wondering if the team is better than they would have been with McNabb under center.
It's hard to believe they are with Grossman or Beck.
If they get Andrew Luck, they will be.
Don't laugh. It's possible, just as long as Kyle Shanahan likes him.
