ESPN is reporting here that the Washington Redskins are benching Donovan McNabb to see what Rex Grossman and John Beck can offer the team. Now that the Skins have been eliminated from playoff contention Mike Shannahan is taking this opportunity to make his documented distrust for McNabb official.
Big Bro's thoughts: Although Shannahan has expressed that he thinks that Grossman gives them a chance to win, Chicago fans can attest to his Favre-like, schizophrenic play. On the other side of that coin is Beck, who has not really had a a fair shot at starting in the NFL. This could be an opportunity for Beck to earn a starting job if Grossman throws a few picks.
