The Washington Redskins need to clear the deck and bring in some new QBs for the 2012 season.  31-year old Rex Grossman was 5-8 (38.5%) as the Redskins’ starting QB in 2011.  He played in 13 games (all starts) for the Redskins last year and he completed 265 of 458 passes (57.9%) for 3,151 yards with 16 TD passes and 20 INTs (72.4 QB Rating).  He also carried the ball 20 times for 11 yards (0.6 ypc) with 1 TD run last year.  Grossman has now played in 54 games (47 starts) so far in his NFL career and he has completed 863 of 1,562 passes (55.2%) for 10,232 yards with 56 TD passes and 60 INTs (71.4 QB Rating).  He also has carried the ball 81 times for 106 yards (1.3 ypc) with 4 TD runs in his NFL career so far.  Grossman is now 25-22 (53.2%) as a starting QB during the regular season in his NFL career.  I can see the Redskins bringing Grossman back as a backup in 2012, but they need a new starting QB.

30-year old John Beck was a bust for the Redskins as they were 0-3 in his starts.  Beck played in 4 games (3 starts) for the Redskins last year and he completed 80 of 132 passes (60.6%) for 858 yards with 2 TD passes and 4 INTs (72.1 QB Rating).  He also carried the ball 10 times for 43 yards (4.3 ypc) with 2 TD runs last year.  Beck has now played in 9 games (7 starts) so far in his NFL career and he has completed 140 of 239 passes (58.6%) for 1,417 yards with 3 TD passes and 7 INTs (67.6 QB Rating).  He has also carried the ball 19 times for 55 yards (2.9 ypc) with 3 TD runs in his NFL career.  Beck is now 0-7 as a starting QB in his NFL career.
