Quarterback controversy returned to the nations capital this week as John Beck was named the Redskin's starting quarterback for this Sunday's matchup agaisnt the Carolina Panthers, ESPN reported. Rex Grossman had started every other game this season, but was pulled in favor of Beck during last weeks game.
Beck, who hasn't started an NFL game since 2007, said he was excited, according to SBNation DC.
I'm definitely excited, he said, SBNation reported. There's been a lot of hard work that's gone into this and you never know when your opportunity is going to come so you always have to stay ready.
For his part, the Washington Post reported, Grossman said he wished he'd had a chance to bounce back from his poor performance, but he'd stay on top of things.
I'm a professional. I'm going to go about my business the same way, Grossman said. I know this offense. If I do get back in there, I'm gonna feel real good about it. I'm gonna feel real good about where I'm at. Just try to get better and build on the things I did well. Having success and winning games will propel my confidence, if I do get back in there. Obviously, there's things I need to clean up, but for the most part, I'll be in a good frame of mind.
