right field. cruz cannot make the catch. a run scores. that proves to be the game winner. the cards hold on to beat the ranges are 3-2. game two is tonight at 8:00 here on fox 8. pretty much everybody saw it coming, knew what was going to happen this weekend. coach shanahan announces it would be john beck to start the game on sunday where the skins take on the carolina panthers. beck replaced grossman last week. it will be beck's first start since 2007 when he was with miami. will he it be able to bring some stability to the skins' offense? will he survive in will they win in let's check in with the sports junkies. they had to make this decision. what do you think? >> i think it was the only decision that could be made. you can't continually trot rex gross man out there if he is go he go to have a quarterback rating in the 20s. won't have that sort of game every time out but his play declined ever since the opening week win against the giants where we had a 110 rating. it all culminated in the 23 rating against the eagles.

you had to bring in beck. >> rex got emotional when he was talking about t he knows he was given a shot and he had the opportunity to run with it and succeed and he blew it. we don't know what is going to happen with john beck. john beck hasn't started a game in forever in the regular season so it is at great unknown. >> but don't expect miracles from john beck. >> i don't. >> don't expect him to go out there and look like tom brady. he will struggle like rex struggles. >> he doesn't have to though. he just has to play better than rex. >> they just have to do better than rex. >> this is a huge game for the skips. >> i think we see the season crumbling in front of us. from john beck's perspective, rex grossman had eight games. he turned it over 19 games. the last game, he turned it over four times. he just has to be better than that. just go out there, do the best you can. try to get a win. but whenever you do don't throw

four intersenses. >> the bar is very low. >> it is very low. >> which is terribly unfortunate for redskins fans. hopefully, this is a different john beck than the one with miami in 2007 because there, in five games, he fumbled the ball eight times. so maybe he is not throwing the picks but he had a little double with the dropsies. if he struggles, can you go back to grossman or are you stuck with beck for the rest of the season have i think have you to give beck at least six to eight games to see what's made of. >> they gave rex eight games. >> there is though point in going back to rex grossman. you no -- you know what you have in rex grossman. >> you also had a guy who got off to a 3-1 start. >> mostly because of their defense. towards the end, it was just a disaster. rex had three games last year. he had five games this year. i agree with cakes. you got to give beck at least six games or so. but if he comes out and it is catastrophic and he plays

horribly, steve, then you have no choice. you have to put rex back in there. >> two of the three wins the skins have are against teams who are combined 1-9 in the standing. >> but look what happened last week with philadelphia coming in at 1-4 and you have carolina coming in with a terrible record too. they have a 22-year-old guy who scored 13 touch downs in his first six games which i will remind you he has now started more games than john beck. >> carolina is absolutely not i apushover despite their 1-5 record. they've been in every game. their defense still needs a lot of work but cam newton, as you mentioned, he will be a handful for that redskins defense. it will an close game. >> all right. real quick, world series now. if you had a chance to watch last night, any thoughts on the game and who you may be picking this year in the world series? >> the cardinals are hot. i thought this would be an offensive game t wasn't. carpenter pitched great in the post-season. this was a defensive and pitching game and larussa made the huge call to pinch hit for

alan craig. he came up hewn in the post- season too. game one goes to the cardinals. i still kind of assume this is going to be an offensive series but game two is huge when the next three or in texas. we'll see what happens. >> i got to go with the hot bats right now. when you look at in where the cardinals were for them to be at this point, you got to think this might be their year. >> thank you. enjoy the redskins game and we'll see how team beck does on sunday. it is the junkies on 106.7 the fan. >> a popular rock star doing his part to help feed the hungry. up next a rather unique take on a new restaurant that is now open for business. we'll explain. we have avenue got time for a my fox half off deal. are you ready for some wine. you want to stock up this weekend because it comes from a vineyard in mclean, virginia. $29 bottles buys you two
