ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting that Rex Grossman could start for the Washington Redskins this Sunday in Dallas since Donovan McNabb is hurt and might not be able to play.

Last I checked McNabb was perfectly fine, and you know who I heard that from?  Donovan McNabb.

On his own radio show, McNabb said he was 100 percent.  Of course that could be just talk; he could be 90 or 80 or even 70 percent.  Either way, on his show when asked if he was hurt he usually would say, "Yeah this...hurts."

Also, Kelly Johnson of CSN Washington quoted a source regarding Mort's report.  The source said, "It's just not true."

This leaves me with the question of just how many times Mort has been wrong about McNabb and Shanahan? 

I mean the Detroit fiasco was how many weeks ago?

Whatever there was between the coach and the quarterback has seem to run its course, and the two appear to be on the same page now.

Honestly, at this point I think that Mort's source is just messing with him.  Who in their right mind would even think that Rex Grossman would start in Dallas?

Come on Mort, you're better than that, aren't you?

Where can I comment?
