    DALY: QB spot is what's holding Redskins back

    The quarterback position figured to be the least of the Washington Redskins' worries when Mike Shanahan took over as coach 21 months ago. Shanahan, after all, is a connoisseur of quarterbacks. He's renowned for getting the most out of them — from John Elway to Steve Young to Jake Plummer to Jay Cutler. Heck, he played the position himself at Eastern Illinois.

  • Cutler, Bears lead Vikings 16-0 after 1st quarter

    Devin Hester caught a 48-yard touchdown pass from Jay Cutler, Marion Barber scored on a 3-yard run, and the Chicago Bears led the Minnesota Vikings 16-0 after the first quarter on Sunday night.

  • Frazier, McNabb lean on each other in tough times

    They are tied together, Leslie Frazier and Donovan McNabb, by a 13-year relationship that helped bring the veteran quarterback to Minnesota back in July.

  • Frazier says McNabb still his guy at QB

    Even after an 0-4 start in which Donovan McNabb has struggled to move the Minnesota Vikings offense, coach Leslie Frazier says it still isn't time to turn things over to rookie Christian Ponder.

  • The Redskins, behind quarterback Rex Grossman, were one of 14 teams with at least 300 yards passing in Week 1. New England, Carolina, Miami and New Orleans topped 400. (Rod Lamkey Jr./The Washington Times)

    SNYDER: Grossman just part of NFL's passing fancy

    Forgive Rex Grossman if you catch a glimpse of him drooling this week, salivating at the thought of Arizona coming to town Sunday. And excuse other quarterbacks you might see exhibiting a tic, evidenced by excessive lip-licking and hand-rubbing.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan took a chance by hiring his son, Kyle, as offensive coordinator last year. The veteran coach admitted he had never seen his new assistant run a meeting with the entire offense present. "I was shocked to see how relaxed he was at his age," the elder Shanahan said.

    Two Shanahans make it work as Redskins rebuild

    Peggy Shanahan feared the worst because she knows her husband and son as well as anybody. A pair of intense, detail-obsessed competitors working closely for 16 hours a day or more? Oh yeah, that would end well. She could see the outcome clearly — the awkward silence at family dinners, the tumultuous discussions on vacation. What a joy it would be for Mike to captain the Washington Redskins' building project with Kyle as one of his top lieutenants.

Through three preseason games, however, nobody has run away with the opportunity yet. (AP Photo/Gail Burton)

    DALY: Shanahan's shake-up was sorely needed

    Nobody likes to clean up somebody else's mess. But that's usually the first order of business for an NFL coach. After all, teams that bring in a new head man aren't usually oozing with talent. They're usually oozing with losing.

  • Berrian looks to have bigger role this season

    Bernard Berrian was the forgotten man in Minnesota last season. He was ignored by Brett Favre in the Vikings offense and had his lowest production in five years.
