It’s bad enough there were rumblings Redskins QB Donovan McNabb could lose his starting job to Rex Grossman. But now he’s getting booed at NBA games to boot? And for that matter, at a Wizards game?
That just doesn’t seem right. I wonder what type of reaction the members of the Wizards who Washingtonians actually recognize — which narrows it down to Gilbert Arenas and John Wall — would get at FedEx Field.
Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post had an interesting post Wednesday, noting via fan reaction on Twitter that McNabb and teammate Mike Sellers were booed when they were shown on the big screen at the Lakers vs. Wizards game at Verizon Center.
The debate is still undecided about how much booing was actually done, and by whom, but this was an apparently short honeymoon. Redskins fans, what was your favorite moment with McNabb as quarterback of your team?
As for all the will-he-or-won’t-he start drama surrounding McNabb, the speculation has been out there. Jay Glazer of Fox Sports and NFL Network first had a pregame report last week suggesting Grossman could replace McNabb, and had taken more reps with the first-team offense the previous week.
Mike Shanahan declined to discuss those reports, according to Washington Post reporter Rick Maese. Meanwhile, McNabb said during his weekly radio show Tuesday on ESPN 980 he knew of no plan to replace him with Grossman and nothing out of the ordinary took place at practice last week.
This all feels like status quo this season in Washington.
