--Can Rex keep his job? Grossman is at the top of the quarterback depth chart, and Mike Shanahan seemed to give him a vote of confidence on Monday. But when it comes to the quarterback position for the Redskins this year, uneasy lies the head that wears the crown. Rex is first up at the podium today, and well ask him about his confidence level from week to week. Hell also break down the interception he threw to Karlos Dansby that ended the Redskins best chance to win the game.--Who steps up at wide receiver? Leonard Hankerson had become an every-down receiver and now that he is out for the season well see if we can get some hints about who will step up and take his snaps. There wont be much revealed as Shanahan generally keeps such things under wraps but we can see which receivers in the locker room seem ready for more playing time.--How do they stop the skid? The Redskins have lost five straight games for the first time since 2001. How are they going to stop the losing streak? When you havent won a game in over a month and a half, how do you learn how to win again? These and other questions will be asked of Shanahan and the guys in the locker room.
