ASHBURN, Va. - Rex Grossman insists he was just making a preseason statement - that he had no idea his suggestion that the Redskins shouldn't be left out of discussions of potential NFC East champions would generate so much backlash. As Washington stands in first place with a 3-1 record heading into Sunday's 1 p.m. game at FedEx Field against the Eagles, those who lampooned his statement are piping down, for now. The Redskins, who were 6-10 last season, are in first place, and the 1-4 Eagles, the popular preseason pick to win the NFC East, are in must-win mode.

Doom and gloom Niffle Nation, don't you feel bad for Rex Grossman? No? Well, maybe it's more pity than sadness. The baby-faced QB took the Bears to the Super Bowl in 2007 but got smacked down last year and is a backup this season behind, hold the applause, Kyle Orton. So Grossman finally got a chance to play Sunday when Orton sprained an ankle. And he led the Bears to a come-from-behind win over the Lions and scored the go-ahead touchdown. So what's Grossman's reward?

LANDOVER, Md. - The Eagles didn't have to play a perfect game to get a win against the Washington Grossmans on Sunday. They just had to avoid another stupid, sloppy performance like the ones that cost them four straight losses and put this season of great expectation in great jeopardy. In fact, they were a long way from perfect against the Redskins, far from a completed project, and that's not even counting the possibility we ever have to see Vince Young on a football field again.

LANDOVER, Md. - Rex Grossman celebrated what he thought was his first touchdown pass by leapfrogging receiver Anthony Armstrong. Oops. Not quite. Turns out Armstrong was down at the 1. When Grossman later connected with Armstrong for a touchdown that counted, the quarterback made a giddy backward trot toward the sideline, then turned around and kept running for another 20 yards or more along the Washington Redskins bench. "Some situations are more emotional than others," Grossman said.

MIAMI - Reggie Bush scored the clinching touchdown then happily heaved the ball into the stands, and the cluster of fans scrambling for the souvenir included a man in a Miami Dolphins jersey holding a baby. The scrum was understandable, given that victory keepsakes have been a rarity lately for Dolphins fans. Bush scored two TDs, and the Dolphins twice intercepted Rex Grossman to earn their first home victory in nearly a year by beating Washington, 20-9, on Sunday. The Dolphins (2-7)

SEATTLE - Rex Grossman threw a 50-yard touchdown pass to Anthony Armstrong on third and 19 midway through the fourth quarter to cap a rally from 10 points down as the Washington Redskins stunned the Seattle Seahawks, 23-17, on Sunday. Grossman was brilliant early, shaky in the middle, and then great again in the fourth quarter for Washington (4-7), which had lost six straight. The loss all but ended hopes by the Seahawks (4-7) of getting back into the NFC playoff picture.

LANDOVER, Md. - Mike Shanahan could take it no longer. He had stuck with quarterback Rex Grossman through some uneven performances during the Washington Redskins' first four games, but after three quarters of futility during Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Eagles at FedEx Field, the coach finally relented to the crowd's chants of "We want Beck. " John Beck took over at quarterback for the Skins in the beginning of the fourth quarter, with Washington trailing by 20-6, and he sparked an offense that had been lethargic.

WASHINGTON - Donovan McNabb has figured out one way to stay in the nation's capital. "Maybe I'll play for the Nationals," he said. The Washington Redskins create quarterback controversies like no one else, even during a lockout. On Wednesday was about as busy as it gets, especially considering the next official team practice is on indefinite hold. McNabb was the showcase guest at the opening of a local health center and joked about playing baseball as he discussed his latest bizarre offseason.

ASHBURN, Va. - The planets aligned just right for the Washington Redskins on that March day in 2012. In need of a franchise quarterback, they had engaged the St. Louis Rams in trade talks for the second overall pick in that year's draft. The Rams, with Sam Bradford, did not think they needed a quarterback upgrade and happily agreed to a deal that gave them Washington's sixth overall selection, plus two extra first-round picks and a second-round pick. A little more than a month later, the Redskins smiled broadly when they selected Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III. Those smiles grew bigger still when the kid with the fast feet, sculpted body, strong arm, and the coolest of nicknames - RG3 - led Washington to its first NFC East title since 1999.

WASHINGTON - Backup quarterback Kirk Cousins hadn't even received postgame pats on the back and "atta-boys" for his smashing first career start before Washington Redskins observers speculated on how much he could fetch in a trade. Sports-talk radio and the Internet have been abuzz with the topic since the NFL's second-hottest team rolled Sunday against Cleveland without injured star quarterback Robert Griffin III. But before Redskins fans work themselves into a tizzy over all the trade-Cousins chatter, we'll let you in on a little secret: Cousins isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

Decisions are still pending on a possible appeal of Sean Payton's suspension or an interim coach should his season-long punishment be upheld, a person familiar with the situation said. The person says Payton, general manager Mickey Loomis and their staffs were in meetings at the team's suburban headquarters on Thursday and focused primarily on preparations for next month's NFL draft. The person spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Saints have not announced their plans.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - If the Washington Redskins proved anything on Sunday, it might be that the New York Giants don't belong in the playoffs. Rex Grossman threw a touchdown pass as the Redskins put a major hurt on the Giants and their playoff hopes with a 23-10 victory. Grossman threw a 20-yard scoring pass to Santana Moss, Darrel Young scored on a 6-yard run after one of the Redskins' three interceptions of Eli Manning, and Graham Gano kicked three field goals as Washington (5-9)

LANDOVER, Md. - Brian Rolle majored in sociology at Ohio State, not mathematics. But the rookie linebacker knew exactly how well his unit did against the run in yesterday's 20-13 win over the Redskins. "Forty-two rushing yards," Rolle said proudly after the game. "People say we can't stop the run. But against a team like this that likes to run the ball and has a great scheme, we did very good. "Going into the fourth quarter, they had just 28 rushing yards. That's something we pride ourselves on. " For much of this season, it also has been something they didn't do very well.

LANDOVER, Md. - A few weeks ago, Rex Grossman was predicting. Yesterday, he was deflecting. Grossman said before the season started that he would lead the Redskins to the NFC East title, and, after a 3-1 start, he seemed prescient. Yesterday, he seemed premature. Grossman matched his career high with four interceptions. He did it in three quarters. He was benched in the fourth quarter, replaced by training-camp favorite John Beck. Grossman does not know when he will throw another pass in a game.
