Alas, poor Donovan, we know you well.
With everyone else in the universe focused on McNabb's benching, perhaps it would be more helpful if we took at the future. Head coach Mike Shanahan has alluded to the fact that the Redskins will begin evaluating players and keep an eye on the draft class of 2011.
I've long thought that, if the Redskins could've drafted Sam Bradford, Shanahan would've drafted him in a heartbeat. However, he couldn't wrestle that pick from the Rams and chose to go with McNabb instead. With McNabb unlikely to want to play for the 'Skins next season, and with Rex Grossman and John Beck only being doable for a placeholder, Shanahan has likely already locked himself in his film room, looking for his next Jay Cutler.
There is no point in reveling in the now. Even if Grossman were to start in 2011 (barring an NFL lockout), he wouldn't end the season as a starter. Shanahan wants a young quarterback that he can bring up his own way, and he will draft someone this year.
That in mind, let's take a look at the quarterbacks that the coach may have his eye on as we march towards the end of another hard Redskins season.
