As rumors began to spread that head coach Mike Shanahan had named Rex Grossman the team's starting quarterback, Redskins players began giving their take on their starting signal caller.
Here are the (various) reactions from players, via numerous Redskins beat reporters:
Santana Moss confirms decision to start Rex, says 'they picked the right guy'; he has also been named off. captain. Fletch/Lorenzo on D/ST
Trent Williams on Grossman being named starter: "To be honest, it didn't matter to me. I'm blocking no matter who's back there." #Redskins
Players say they were told at practice today that Rex will start vs NYG. #Redskins
It has to be comforting to the players to now know who their starting quarterback is. It gives them a chance to build an on-field and off-field rapport with their signal caller, and finally puts to bed any notion of a 'quarterback controversy'. For now, it's a done deal and the team can head into Week 1 of the season knowing who their guy is.
