Washington Redskins was stuck in a quarterback controversy involving former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb and former Chicago Bears quarterback Rex Grossman. However, both options are not good for head coach Mike Shanahan and owner Dan Snyder. The Redskins, like the New York Yankees, believe that money will solve everything. Unfortunately, that does not appear to be the case — yet again for the Redskins.
The Redskins acquired Donovan McNabb from the Philadelphia Eagles, and with a sub-par offense, among other things, McNabb has been performing poorly. Donovan McNabb currently has 14 touchdowns and 15 interceptions and a 77.1 quarterback rating. Now he is benched for Rex Grossman who, unfortunately, is not a better option down the road. When Grossman was with the Bears he performed only slightly worse, and that was when he was at his best. In 2006, he had 20 interceptions and 23 touchdowns and a 73.9 quarterback rating.
The best option for the Redskins team currently is to establish a run with Ryan Torain, and still let McNabb close the season as best as he can with this mediocre offense.
