"Donovan's our quarterback," Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Sunday night. "One hundred percent."

He's certainly been disappointed in McNabb's 57.4% accuracy and might not have a long leash if the Eagles cuff the veteran QB around on Monday. Shanahan's history suggests McNabb will have to play better and more consistently, beginning Monday night, to remain Washington's long-term starter.
