The Washington Redskins will have a number of areas to address when free agency starts, but the biggest question surrounding the team is on the guy who will be under center for the season opener. It most likely won't be Donovan McNabb, who is expected to be released rather than traded. So if not McNabb, then who?
"He is set on Beck," said a source familiar with Shanahan's thinking. "That's his guy. He isn't just saying it for the media or to blow smoke. He's serious as hell about it."
Shanahan never played Beck in 2010, even when he turned to Rex Grossman at the end of the season. Beck hasn't even played in a regular season since his rookie season in 2007 when he was with the Miami Dolphins.
Apparently there are more than a few in Redskins territory wondering what Shanahan is doing with this newly found preference for Beck. As it stands, Beck is more likely to lose games for the 'Skins than win them.
