The Rex Grossman era of the Washington Redskins begins today at 4 PM. Whether or not this lasts for a few years or a few games, this first game will definitely be an intriguing game to watch.

The Redskins are certainly an interesting team to watch: After letting go of their one-year starter Donovan McNabb, they made the questionable decision to go with Rex Grossman and John Beck as their two quarterbacks, opting not to draft a quarterback of the future.

While the Redskins may not have a reliable quarterback, they have some potential with an improved defense and a few promising players on offense.

The Giants are also dealing with a team that has already been hit hard by injuries, with first-round pick Prince Amukamara gone for 6-8 weeks, and defensive star Osi Umenyiora out for at least this week after getting surgery.

A month ago, many would have picked the Giants to win this game easily, but all of the injuries and the free-agent losses have thrown this game into question. And the Redskins, who have some questions but also some promise, may actually have a chance to pull off the Week 1 win against their division rival.

Throughout the game, I'll keep you posted with updates and my thoughts on the game.
