Big fan of Washington football? Then check out this list of Washington Redskins quarterbacks with photos! It includes every starting quarterback from throughout Washington Redskins history, including current quarterbacks and past ones.

Vigorous training is a must-- and don't forget that a quarterback is only as good as his receivers.
