Positional battles in NFL training camps are one of the most entertaining facets to the summer offseason. Typically, the fight for the starting role at quarterback gets the most attention, and sports networks do their best to plaster the drama on every television set in the country.
The battle to become the starting quarterback for the Washington Redskins was no different.
Although "battles" usually occur between two guys that are both worthy of actually being starters, the same can't necessarily be said about the situation in Washington.
Faced with a mediocre veteran in Rex Grossman that happens to be familiar with the offensive playbook, going up against an unproven 29-year-old with only five starts under his belt, the Washington Redskins shouldn't expect either quarterback to join the ranks of Tom Brady, Phillip Rivers or Aaron Rodgers in 2011.
However, under the culture change and foundation laying of head coach Mike Shanahan, fans are expected to take sides in the quarterback fight and jump on the bandwagon of who they believe should be their team's starter.
Consider this a soap box speech from a John Beck supporter—because he's the best thing the Redskins have for quarterback.
