Redskins HC Mike Shanahan is standing by John Beck, who will get a chance to start on Friday.

“I’ve been doing this for a few years. I know people that can play,” Mike Shanahan told Dan Graziano of ESPN. “He’s an excellent athlete. He’s got a quick release. He can anticipate throws. He’s a natural leader. Extremely intelligent. So I don’t even worry about what people say. I know John Beck can play in this league. Why hasn’t he played? Why hasn’t he had a chance? I really don’t care what the different thought processes are, but I know John can play in this league. He hasn’t had a chance.”
