The stage is set, the voice in the television booth will be awfully familiar to the head coach, the audience is going to be abundant and Redskins Nation will show unparalleled loyalty just as it always does.
The only question that remains heading into the Washington Redskins’ preseason Week 2 matchup with the Cleveland Browns at FedExField is who the first- and second-team defense will face at the quarterback position and how long they’ll square off.
Apparently, there’s been a lot of discussion about the Browns’ quarterback situation lately.
With the game just five days away, here’s where everything stands on the other side and what Redskins fans can expect.
According to Browns head coach Mike Pettine, rookie Johnny Manziel and six-year veteran Brian Hoyer will split reps with the first-team offense.
As for who is starting?
To be determined, but reports are floating around that a starter could be named later today.
Also, added to the discussion — perhaps not from a starting standpoint but rather in simply seeing action at FedExField — is former Redskin Rex Grossman.
Grossman signed with the Browns on Tuesday. He spent four seasons with the Redskins (2010-13), starting 17 games.
Regardless of it’s the dynamic, fleet-footed rookie or the pocket-passing veteran, the defense is hoping to duplicate the great performance from the 23-6 victory over the New England Patriots on Aug. 7.
In that game, the entire unit held quarterbacks Ryan Mallett and Jimmy Garaoppolo to a combined 14-for-25 for 207 yards.
Oh, as for that that familiar voice?
Well, as has been the case for the last few years, the Redskins are a national television attraction and will once again be hosting Monday Night Football on ESPN with Jon Gruden– Redskins head coach Jay Gruden’s older brother — on the call.
