Rex Grossman Brings Out Bad Rex for the Redskins

While I did not watch this game, I'm absolutely shocked that Mike Shanahan benched Donovan McNabb and brought in former Chicago Bears QB Rex Grossman, under any circumstance.

But this wasn't a halftime move, or even a 3rd quarter move. The Skins were behind 31-25 with just 1:45 remaining and the ball on their own 28-yard line when Shanahan called on Grossman to enter the game and try and win it.

But Bad Rex showed up. Grossman fumbled on the very first snap after being sacked by Kyle Vanden Bosch. Ndamukong Suh picked up the fumble and returned it 17 yards for a Detroit touchdown, and that sealed the victory.

McNabb was 17 of 30 for 210 yards, one touchdown and one interception at the time of his exit.

NFL.com also reports that McNabb was healthy at the time of his exit.

"Shanahan said Grossman gave the Redskins their "best chance to win" because of his comfort level and knowledge of the terminology in the two-minute offense, and that health wasn't a factor in the decision.

"I don't think any quarterback likes it, but you got to make those tough decisions," Shanahan said.

Shanahan said that McNabb remains the starter for the Redskins.

Wow. Just wow.
