    Rex Grossman will be the Redskins’ starting quarterback in Week 1, according to team sources.

    Grossman had been battling all training camp with John Beck, who missed time due to injury and also had the lockout working against him.

    Coach Mike Shanahan informed the quarterbacks of his decision over the weekend, according to the sources.

    Report: Grossman to start for Redskins

    [​IMG] ReutersWith “none of the above” not an option, the Redskins need to make either John Beck or Rex Grossman the starting quarterback for Week One.
    Jason LaCanfora of NFL Network reports that the starter will be Grossman.
    Per LaCanfora, the decision was made over the weekend. Some would say it was made before Thursday’s preseason finale, given that Grossman got the night off along with other starters — and that Beck played, along with the scrubs.
    It’s surprising that the Redskins didn’t keep the decision closer to the vest, assuming that the decision has indeed been made. Then again, does it really matter if the Giants know who’ll start? They’ll be defending against the Shanahan system, not against a guy like Tom Brady or Tony Romo.

    No Kidding :laugh1:
