Redskins | John Beck says he needs to improve

Mon, 07 Nov 2011 00:11:52 -0800

Washington Redskins QB John Beck will get another shot at bringing an end to his 0-7 record as an NFL starter. He is expected to start during Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins, but Beck has done little in his three starts to suggest he'll be a long-term option for the Redskins. "I don't want it to continue," Beck said of the team's offensive problems. "I want to put my foot down, and I want it to stop." Beck went on to say the team has to get better and it has to start with him. Head coach Mike Shanahan said it is easy to blame the quarterback, but the team has lost some pieces of the puzzle recently and it has helped lead to the quarterback looking pretty average. "We're playing pretty average as a group," Shanahan said.

Fri, 21 Oct 2011 06:42:27 -0700

Redskins | Rex Grossman is in, but for how long?

Tue, 06 Sep 2011 11:50:42 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Rex Grossman may be the starter entering the season, but his chances of making the full season as the starter are longer than the team's chances of making the playoffs in 2011, writes David Elfin, of CBSWashingtonDC.com. In the last 18 years, only three Washington quarterbacks - Jason Campbell (2008 and 2009), Brad Johnson (1999) and Gus Frerotte (1996) - were able to start all 16 games for the Redskins. At some point, it is believed QB John Beck will become the 20th starting quarterback for the Redskins in the last 19 years.

QBs Rex Grossman and John Beck are in compeition for the job. "I've been telling you guys from Day 1 and I'll keep on saying the same thing. We're going to evaluate them all the way through camp, all the way through the last preseason game and possibly up until the day before we play the Giants," Shanahan said. "It all depends on if someone separates themselves … As I've said before, I feel very good about both quarterbacks, we can win with both of them. They've played well enough to date for people to see that, even outside our organization, and hopefully they keep on playing well."

Washington Redskins QBs John Beck and Rex Grossman will continue to battle for the starting job during the remainder of the preseason. Head coach Mike Shanahan said he feels very good about both quarterbacks and said the team can win with either one of them.

"I'm going to evaluate them all the way through camp, all the way through the last preseason game. Possibly all the way up to the day before we play the Giants. It all depends if somebody separates themselves," Shanahan said of his quarterbacks. The two quarterbacks alternated two series during the third preseason game, with Grossman starting.
