Donovan McNabb prepares to pass against the Minnesota Vikings in week 12, November 28

The 2010 Washington Redskins season was the 78th season for the team in the National Football League (NFL), and their first under new head coach Mike Shanahan, who also began his term as the team's Vice President of Football Operations. The Redskins obtained the 4th pick in the 2010 NFL Draft as a result of their 4–12 record from their previous season, which they used to draft Oklahoma tackle Trent Williams. Finishing the season 6–10, the Redskins improved on their 4–12 record from the 2009 season, but were officially eliminated from postseason contention in Week 14. Of the 16 games of the season, only four (all losses) were decided by more than a single possession.

With new starting quarterback Donovan McNabb, who replaced Jason Campbell (traded to Oakland), Washington aimed to improve upon their previous failing seasons. However, upon Week 15 and a rating of 77.1 (25th overall in the league), Shanahan would bench McNabb in favor of their second-string Rex Grossman (who was the quarterback for the 2006 Chicago Bears that went to play in the Super Bowl).

Movement[edit]

The Redskins released RBs Rock Cartwright and Ladell Betts, WR Antwaan Randle El, OG Randy Thomas, DT Cornelius Griffin and CB Fred Smoot on March 4, 2010, one day before the start of free agency.

On April 4, the Redskins traded a 2010 2nd round pick and either a 3rd or 4th round pick in 2011 for veteran Eagles QB Donovan McNabb. The conditional 3rd/4th round pick is reflective on McNabb's performance during the season.

On April 24, the Redskins traded QB Jason Campbell to the Oakland Raiders for a 2012 4th round pick. The Jason Campbell trade had been anticipated ever since the Donovan McNabb trade a few weeks before.

On June 19, the Redskins addressed their need for a strong offensive line by trading a third or fourth in 2011 (reflective on the Donovan McNabb trade) to the New Orleans Saints for Pro Bowl OT Jammal Brown.

The Redskins entered Week 17 as a spoiler in the New York Giants' run for the playoffs. In a game full of turnovers, New York gained the early upper hand with a 20-yard field goal from Lawrence Tynes. In the second quarter, the Giants added 7 more points to their score after a 2-yard run from Brandon Jacobs. Washington would put their first points on the board with a 1-yard pass from Rex Grossman to Fred Davis to conclude the scoring for the first half. The Giants went up by another seven points upon Mario Manningham's 92-yard reception from Eli Manning. The Redskins would answer with a 64-yard pass from Grossman to Anthony Armstrong, leaving the differential of the score to a field goal. In Washington's final possession, Grossman would lead the team to a turn over on downs; with no timeouts, the New York Giants would win the game (although due to Green Bay's superior head-to-head tiebreaker advantage, unable to qualify for the playoffs) and the Redskins would end their season by falling to 6–10 but surpassing their previous season's record of 4–12.
