NFL Picks And Predictions Week 7: Redskins Vs. Panthers

For the second time in two years, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan is causing a stir with his quarterbacks. In his first season with the team in 2010, Shanahan sent shock waves throughout the D.C. area by opting to bench Donovan McNabb in favor of Rex Grossman during a two-minute drill in a loss at Detroit.

Shanahan flip-flopped back to McNabb until Grossman took over the job for the final three weeks of that season and held it over the early stages of 2011.

However, a few days before this Sunday's road matchup with the Carolina Panthers, Shanahan had to again decide whether he wanted Grossman to remain under center after a putrid performance versus Philadelphia last week, or to ignite the John Beck wick.

The CBS experts mostly think Shanahan's gamble will pay off, with three of the five picking the Skins. Sports Network also thinks the Skins will come out on top. Meanwhile, our friends at SB Nation Philly andSB Nation Pittsburgh both think the Panthers will come out on top.
