08:04 AM ET 06.03 | Count Chris Cooley among so many who believe the Redskins will soon be a little thin at quarterback. With Donovan McNabb likely out of the picture, John Beck is basically the starter by default, although free agent Rex Grossman hopes to re-sign and compete for the starting job. Appearing on NFL Network Wednesday, Cooley complemented both Beck and Grossman but said the Redskins' quarterback picture remains undecided. With veteran quarterbacks like Matt Hasselbeck and Vince Young available, Cooley expects the Redskins to explore other possibilities. ... "Obviously we're going to have to bring someone else in. ... Obviously, they passed on a lot of guys they had a chance to draft. So either they really like John Beck and Rex Grossman, or they have someone else in mind."

One thing Cooley knows - Grossman ain't the answer to the question.

Now, this is important:

National Doughnut Day: Friday is the day America celebrates the doughnut.

National Doughnut Day originated with the The Salvation Army in Chicago in 1938 as a salute to the women who served doughnuts to U.S. soldiers during World War I.

With those options at QB Skins fans are probably hoping that the lockout continues.

The first time I'm glad they didn't show a picture of the person in the headline. T&R may have shown the picture of Cooley that got him in trouble--- Little Cooley.

Let Chico start. C'mon, give the guy the ball and see what he can do.

Vince Ypung to the Redskins? Haven't they suffered enough?

June 3, 2011  08:26 AM ET

Best QB on the market is probably Kolb, but the Eagles won't trade the Skins a QB again....Will they?

Better than the picture of the other Rex.

I was thinking the same thing - Cooley can say whatever he wants, as long as he spares us photos of his red skin helmet

Heck, why don't they throw in the possibility of Kolb or Orton to the Skins. I mean they already have them going to a handful of other teams.

Hold out for a medical plan, though.

June 3, 2011  08:33 AM ET

It'll be another disastrous season whenever they start.

Congratulations Shanny. You can't have effective "practice", leadership, or unisom, when we don't even have a QB.

Put a gag on it. This is persuasive rumor mongering, like all those successful mock drafts.
