Washington Post - [Full Article]

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan came away from his film study of Washington’s 33-20 loss to the Carolina with a sense of pride in how quarterback John Beck played in his first start for the team.

Beck – who hadn’t started a game since 2007, when he was a rookie with Miami – completed 22 passes for 279 yards and a touchdown and an interception on 37 attempts, rushed for a touchdown and had one fumble during a blindside sack.

Beck spread the ball around to eight different receivers and for much of the game was without two of the team’s top targets (tight end Chris Cooley, who missed the game with a broken finger, and receiver Santana Moss, who broke his hand in the game). Shanahan was pleased with how Beck handled the adversity he faced.
