Cowboys Vs. Redskins: Donovan McNabb Benched?

Matt Mosley reports that Mike Shanahan has decided to start Rex Grossman at quarterback Sunday in Dallas, just a few weeks after Donovan McNabb signed an extension. Shanahan was evasive in his conference call.

On a conference call Wednesday, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan was asked if McNabb would start Sunday and replied, "You want to go through our whole lineup or do you want me to go through each position or do you just want to start with the quarterback?"

McNabb has thrown 15 interception in his last ten games and has fumbled ten times. He's seen his QB rating dip into the 70's, better than just six qualified players. Grossman has thrown a combined total of 16 passes since the start of the 2009 season.
