While I am extremely happy to get the win, I can't-- for the life of me-- understand why Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, down by six points late in the fourth quarter, benched starting quarterback Donovan McNabb in favor of backup Rex Grossman claiming Grossman could best run the two-minute drill. HUH?!?! Shanahan really blew that one and Detroit's defense made him pay. Grossman coughed up the ball after taking his first snap! Ndamukong Suh scooped up the loose ball and danced into the endzone! Now, we're up 13. Game over!

Hmmm. The Redskins are off next week giving Shanahan, McNabb and the media two weeks to let this thing simmer. It will be interesting to see how things play out for the rest of the season. More importantly, it will be interesting to see how things play out after the season. My guess is that Donovan McNabb-- while standing on the sideline after being pulled from the game-- was thinking to himself, "I'm calling my agent as soon as we get back to DC and telling him to start quietly planning my departure from this comedy of errors."
Oh, Good Evening!
