It’s been almost two weeks since we first heard the idea of John Beck as the next Redskins starting quarterback, and the idea hasn’t lost any steam in Washington.

Mike Jones of the Washington Post writes Thursday that Beck appears to be the team’s future starter. Rex Grossman is a free agent, but Jones writes that Grossman would likely return as Beck’s backup if he re-signed.

If Washington sees Beck as superior to Grossman, we have our doubts Grossman will be back. They need a better alternative at quarterback; we simply don’t believe Mike Shanahan will accept status quo at the position, minus Donovan McNabb.

Jones starts his post by writing that the Redskins “have money to spend and are champing at the bit, according to people inside the organization.”

They should be able to find a better way to spend that money than bringing Grossman back.
