Latest Rex Grossman Items
On the day Washington Redskins quarterback John Beck turned 30, he was praised by coach Mike Shanahan for his play against the Indianapolis Colts.
My observations, analysis and conclusions about the Washington Redskins' offense after re-watching their 16-3 preseason victory over the Indianapolis Colts using the TV broadcast:

It has been 3 1/2 months since Mike Shanahan emerged from the Washington Redskins' draft war room and said of John Beck: "I think the world of him." That sentence was enough to shift the NFL hype machine into overdrive, and when that happens during a lockout, a few weeks seem like an eternity.

Grossman couldn't turn his 2006 Super Bowl appearance into any sort of staying power in Chicago, and Beck is competing with an intern's résumé.
