Washington Redskins Training Camp: Mike Shanahan, Kyle Shanahan Disagree On Team's Starting QB

Monday at Washington Redskins training camp was a confusing one, as head coach Mike Shanahan and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan seemed to contradict each other when both were asked about which quarterback would start against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday. Neither revealed whether the starter would be Rex Grossman or John Beck, but there was still confusion.

Via SB Nation D.C.'s own Daniel Shiferaw:

K.Shanahan on QB situation:"Yeah I do [know who will start].But I'm not going to let you know. I'll wait for someone else to tell you." hmmmless than a minute ago via TweetDeck Favorite Retweet Reply

Sounds like Kyle may have accidentally spilled some beans. When asked about the contradiction, Mike Shanahan said he wouldn't decide until gametime. For what it's worth (probably nothing), Grossman is listed as the No. 1 guy on the official depth chart distributed by the team.
