Redskins Look For Answers At Quarterback Heading Into First Preseason Game

The Washington Redskins begin their pre-season schedule tonight with an exhibition against the Pittsburgh Steelers. But one still question hangs over the heads of the Skins faithful: Who will be the Redskins' starting quarterback?

John Beck, Rex Grossman and Kellen Clemens are all vying for the job. None of them have had much success in the NFL, but some fans that came to watch the team practice at Redskins Park this week were hopeful.

"You get a whole bunch of them in there, have them compete, I think they'll come out with a winner," said one fan.

However, after seeing each quarterback run the offense, others were less optimistic.

“I'm kinda hesitant about how it'll be this year," said another fan.

Despite the uncertainty, the fans at training camp were happy that it's time for the team to take the field again, especially after the NFL lockout threatened to cut the preseason short.

"I think that any time you're on the verge of losing something, you want to appreciate it a little bit more,” said another fan.

Tonight's game against the Steelers kicks off at 7:30 p.m. at FedEx Field.
