10:10 pm
controversy. we talked about this last year. mcnabb yanked with three games left. and then rex grossman, the guy that beat out john beck, yanked yesterday for john beck. and we still don't know who will start. but rex grossman had a very bad day yesterday and here is how it all went down. rex was making his 8th start as a redskin and his most forgettable. completed 9 of 22 passes, picked off four times matching a career high. he now has 11 turnovers through 9 games, 9 interceptions and two lost fumbles. after the fourth, shanahan had seen enough. john beck making his first start since sept 2007. he didn't start but first action. he can run and he showed that during his fourth quarter clearance. 117 and his longest a 32-yard hookup with terrance austin which led to the redskins lone touchdown in the 20-13 loss to the eagles. now the question is, is it
10:11 pm
grossman or beck sunday against its panthers? >> i've not made up my mind right now. i have talked to the coaches to get their opinions on the play. you go through game situations and look at who is active and who gives you the best chance to win. >> i feel like he deserves another shot. he played a hell of a game. tom brady threw four, what, two weeks ago. >> everybody deserves another chance. that's what football is. you can't win them all. that's just life. you want to win them all, but at the same time everyone makes mistakes. it's not just rex. you can't pencil in one guy. >> well 4-1 is better than 3-2 but that's still a winning record. rex grossman led them to three wins. i do not think it is a no- brainer that he's going to go with john beck. i think he's going to waive those options and santana moss saying the politically correct thing, you have to back your
10:12 pm
quarterback. what if it stays quarterback. >> then he's not throwing you the ball. >> exactly. so we'll see what happens. i think it will be beck. >> here is my question for you. we saw this similar type of thing with shanahan, is it a coach thing? it would seem when you keep benching the quarterbacks, and then pull them out, and it's got to be bad on the psyche. >> and i understand. but rex was bad. he threw four interceptions sand really made bad decisions. and he looked like his confidence was shaken and he said he didn't care if the whole stadium was against him, he believed in himself. but clearly the way he played, shawn, looked like his confidence was shaken. shanahan said he will play whoever gives him the best chance to win after the preseason. the answer to that, according to shanahan, was rex grossman. the answer now might be beck. you don't want to switch quarterbacks. it shows that you have problems with your team. >> right. >> but if i -- if a guy is
10:13 pm
throwing four interceptions you have to go with somebody else. >> thank you. the sports world reeling after a deadly 15-car pileup claims a fan favorite. tonight we know what he did with his wife hours before his death. is the mother of this missing baby changing her story about what happened just before her daughter disappeared? a beautiful monday here in d.c. bright skies and cloud cover this morning. we have a few clouds around tonight but more rain back in the forecast. i'll let you know when to expect it and how much we're expecting. and tonight at 11:00, hear from a virginia man who fought off a gun-wielding burglar. his story on the news edge.

10:47 pm
not a bad night at all. and we will stay dry. and don't worry about rain for the morning commute. we're going to stay in good shape there. so the weather headline said it all. one more dry day and then pretty decent rain in here on wednesday and it will likely be showing up just south of town by this time tomorrow night. if not already beginning to rain. so your next three days look like this: tuesday a mix of clouds and sun. but we'll have some sunshine to get through and a comfortable day at 72 degrees. wednesday is a soaker. it looks like we'll have a stretch of tropical moisture coming up from florida. and the national hurricane center is continuing to keep an eye on that system in case it becomes tropical in nature. but so far it isn't. be we'll have tropical-like rains and downpours and maybe a thunderstorm on wednesday, temperature 68 degrees. thursday i think there could be an early-morning shower and clouds and then down to about 61 degrees and that is our high for the day. so our heaviest rain is wednesday. and it looks as though that heavy rain will be east of 95
10:48 pm
on wednesday. so we'll have to watch those areas closely. especially if your in an area with flooding problems in september and early october. max hd satellite and radar, you can see clouds coming in tonight but it is dry around here. we have to go down to south florida to find our system. it's been raining and raining hard in the keys. this is a system that's in the gulf of mexico and hurricane hunters went in and checked it out tonight and decided it's not tropical and don't have a closed circulation, but it is still being monitored as it begins to come inland, it is gusty with 35-40 mile-per-hour winds. but then it should get sheer add part and as it comes up the coast, it is a breezy rain- maker for us. and there is a trough of low pressure circulating in there and that will help to tap this deep plume of tropical moisture and bring it on up to the east coast. luckily it does appear it will move quickly. but this tropical moisture may be able to put down several inches in some areas and we're also thinking that maybe new england is going to get a big
