This is the type of game to make you seriously question whether we have the right coaching staff, which to me, is a much bigger worry than players.
And how many player mistakes did you see?
Dropped balls KILLED any offensive momentum. not as much as Rex grossman did, but you see why Stallworth is where he is in his career when he drops stuff like that. HUGE negative momentum.
And I'd say losing Lich and Trent williams on the OL , and cooley did NOT help any either. Montgomery is a better center than guard I think. Now we see how Cook has developed with Lich out for the year.
One loss to a team that is BETTER THAN OURS(forget the records)and people are calling for Shanny's head. You guys blame Snyder but you're no different. I believe in the Shanahans, yes both of them. There is only so much you can do when you're significantly lacking in talent which we still are. It's going to take at least 1-2 more offseasons to get us into contention.
I don't know why it took Shanahan the 4th INT to bench Grossman. Inexcusable. It was clear as day he didn't have it and the move should have been executed at the end of the 1st half. If we did that, we might have came back and won this game. Waiting until it's the 4th qtr is way too late. Grossman is his own worst enemy and self destructs everytime he feels a hint of pressure. Attempts throws into coverage, has no arm, no intelligence and no calm under pressure. All that BS talk about the old Rex is gone, this is a new Rex was simply that, BS talk. The old Rex never left. The guy can't read a defense. He needs to be benched the rest of the season and cut afterwards. Another failed QB experiment by the Shanahan's and I'm really starting to question how they assess talent at that position. They seem ok everywhere else, but that position.

It is called giving him enough rope to hang himself.
He did it with Mcnabb last year.
Why did he need to give him that much rope? It's not like Rex was a perennial all pro before coming here. I can understand doing that for McNabb who was a proven all pro QB in the past. Rex has done nothing to get that kind of leeway. He's had one good game against a banged up Giants team and has been crappy since and getting worse each passing game. The smart move would have been to bench him at halftime. That would have sent a powerful message that subpar play at QB is not to be tolerated or any other position for that matter. I think the Redskins would have came back and won if Beck was the QB at the start of Q3.

I thought 4 of his first 5 games as a redskin qb Rex threw for 300+ yards. Although the offense has been getting worse it seems every game. (The more games played, the more film other teams have on your schemes and players abilities. Might be a factor.)
Maybe Shanahan wanted to avoid the flak he got last year for benching hall of famer and every year pro bowler (at least according to some individuals) Mcnabb.
Maybe Grossman was starting instead of Beck because they felt Beck needed more time; Grossman has been in it longer than Beck.
WE don't know. Only the coaches and maybe the players do.
