Ramsey Remains the Starter

However, no player on the roster should consider his job "safe." Joe Gibbs is a 'Show Me' coach. If a player proves he should be on the field - he'll earn the starting job. Price tags, history and reputations mean little to Coach Gibbs. The signal has been sent, loud and clear, 'if you want to be a starter for the Washington Redskins - you'll have to earn it.' It's refreshing!
While I don't blame the DC area sports writers for tying to stir up a little controversy, I would hope that they at least focus on the facts. As in years past, you'll again see a 'Redskins thinking about a name change-; American Indians protest the Redskins-; Native Americans don't like Redskins'- "story." Never mind the fact that the Redskins will NEVER change the name of the team. A story with quotation marks and supposed interviews will still take place.
Take every story about the Washington Redskins with a grain of salt. The headline "Ramsey Frustrated" is bogus and totally misleading. Ramsey did struggle at times in '03. But it's easy to perform poorly when 350-pounder monsters are pounding you into the turf on a regular basis. "Ramsey sues Spurrier for Lack of Support" would be a much better story - and much more realistic.
The Redskins need a capable backup QB, and may have found one at the end of last season, completely by accident. Tim Hasslebeck performed admirably after learning the playbook on-the-fly. But don't think for a second that he, nor any other QB has an edge over Patrick Ramsey... chalk it up to offseason, busy-body, wish-there-was something to write about- hooey.
