    Watched the game. McNabb is not at fault, the offensive line play was atrocious. Suh and the rest of the Lions line tore it up. McNabb did pretty well considering what he had to work with, which was crappy line play and no running game.

    I love Shanahan, but I don't know what he was thinking putting Grossman in there.

      I don't really get the point of what Shanahan was trying to do. A vote of no-confidence in your starting quarterback is a vote of no-confidence. Ditching him for Rex Grossman turns the whole thing from puzzling to borderline hilarious.

      I know McNabb hasn't been amazing for that team this year, but I think he's been perfectly decent. I know people were predicting big things for them this year, but we quickly forgot how bad that team was last season with a really similar roster.

      If McNabb doesn't know the 2-minute terminology by this point, what the **** are they doing in practice? If that's just his lame excuse, then why is Shanahan *****-footing around? Moreover, if you want to replace McNabb with Grossman, wouldn't it make sense to give Grossman a fairer shake then 2 minutes against a defensive line that is eating your team alive?

      Someone is free to correct me, but I think this was one of the shittiest coaching decisions I've ever seen. It makes no sense from any angle you look at it.

        I really expected the Redskins to be better than they are right now.

          They're lucky to have won as many games as they have.

            Why is this exactly?

              The fact that Grossman literally fumbled away the game on the first place makes this so much more hysterical.

              HAHA. Think about it hahahahaha. Awesome.

                Because they won 4 games with the worst head coach/OC I've ever seen (the Jim Zorn offense was based on trick plays. . . ), a really bad QB, no offensive line, a dead legs running back, and their defense.

                Now they have Donovan McNabb, a (rookie) franchise LT, a defense, and a good coach (good, though some people think great). Plus, their schedule didn't look that tough.

                The losses are to the Texans (who everyone over-rates every year and then wonders why they went 8-8 or 9-7), the Rams (who have 6 wins in 3 seasons), The Colts (ok... understandable, but this was a close game), and the Lions (who are one of the worst teams over the last 5 years). No dis-respect to those teams, but I see two close games against "great" teams and two blowouts against "bad" teams.

                  I think Shanny has a hardon for Locker (see Kyler Boller 2.0), which will be the draft pick the forces Shanahan into retirement.

                    Shannahan is an idiot for doing this. You can tell he was at a loss for words in his press conference. McNabb had a rough game and is still learning the offense. QB's going to new teams don't come in and produce in there 1st year in a new system right away, even if your a veteran.

                    Honestly, I would question Shanahan. I mean really, he thought Grossman gave them a better chance at winning the ball game? He needs his head examined after that one.

                      Nah. Peyton has played great even when his line hasn't.

                        Clearly Shanahan is senile if he truly believes that Rex Grossman can give ANYONE a better chance to win in ANY situation.

                        Because he probaby isn't senile (at least not yet), I'm going to have to go with the theory that Shanahan wanted to humiliate McNabb (a la Andy Reid in 2008 ) with the intention of motivating him to play better.

                        Might work, might not. Worked for Andy Reid in 2008 when McNabb came back after the benching and tore Arizona a new hole. Then he took them a nice stretch run into the playoffs and to the NFC Championship game. Either Shanahan will end up looking like a genius for doing this or McNabb will simply quit on him and the Redskins will lose 90% of the rest of their games and end up picking a quarterback in the top 5 of the 2011 draft.

The Eagles were eventually going to end up cutting him anyway, and getting even a 2nd round pick for him was a success.
                          You can't really believe that.
                          He may no longer be the 'answer' for the Eagles, but he's still the best QB the Skins have had since Theismann/Rypien.

                              You stated everything succinctly in this paragraph.

                              That's what i would call hitting the nail on the head. From what we know the decision doesn't make any sense at all... i was just as puzzled as everyone else when Grossman started warming up.

                              All of my posts in here exist in strict opposition to the tail spin sky is falling people who can't remember what this team looked like last year.

                              So is it a boneheaded call from Shanny? Probably. Is it as huge a deal as a lot of people are making it out to be... nah, i really don't think so.

                                To me, it is 50/50 about McNabb being done in DC. He will be the starter for the rest of 2010. However, I'm not certain that the Skins will make him an offer he likes or that the Skins will want to bring him back. The issue is that the Skins haven't brought in any sort of future option. They spent their second round pick in 2010 on McNabb. They have no real young option they can groom. A 2011 rookie is probably not going to be ready to take the reins and won't even be a factor until 2012.

                                The bigger problem IMO is that the Redskins OLine continues to suck. Trent Williams is a future Pro Bowler (assuming health), but the rest of the line is really not that effective. McNabb did a good job in Philly for 10-11 years behind stud OT's (Thomas and Runyan for many years). When the Eagles switched from their usual OT's to Peters and Justice, McNabb had more issues. The Redskins curent OLine is worse than the worst Eagles OLine since 2000. At least with the 2010 Eagles, McNabb had weapons to throw to in Jackson, Maclin, Celek, and Avant. The Redskins have limited personnel to help him out.

                                In my mind, McNabb is not in a good situation, and his line isn't giving him the time he needs to get work done. With the Vikings and Cardinals having QB openings in 2011, there is limited incentive for him to stay in DC. The Skins will then be left holding nothing. Works for me!
