On the same day that Redskins coach Mike Shanahan sung the praises of his former quarterback in Denver, Shanahan stopped short of declaring either Jason Campbell or Rex Grossman to be “the guy” in D.C.
Asked by NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora whether there will be an open competition at the position, Shanahan said, “There’s competition at every position. Just because a guy comes in as a maybe third, fourth or fifth guy, it doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a chance to compete. But Rex Grossman was with [offensive coordinator] Kyle [Shanahan] in Houston, he understands the system. . . . We’re going to get as much steps as we can and have all these guys compete.”
Uh-oh. Washington? Get ready for a guy who fumbles a lot, and who throws a lot of deep interceptions. You should just pretend they’re punts.
