Washington Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman completed 19 of 26 passes for 207 yards and a touchdown to help the Washington Redskins beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 16-7 on Friday night in the preseason opener for both teams.
Hoping to gain over early edge over an injured John Beck for the starting job, Grossman hit Santana Moss for an 8-yard score in the second quarter - although the drive came against Pittsburgh’s second-string defense.
Beck did not play. He sat out after tweaking his groin in practice last week.
While the Redskins’ starters played the entire first half, Pittsburgh’s first-stringers were done for the game by the end of the first quarter. Backup Isaac Redman had a 22-yard touchdown run for the Steelers.
You don't want Grossman or Beck on your team, but Grossman is probably the lesser of two evils if you have Santana Moss on your team.
