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. This roster contains many American football greats, players in the game with the highest ratings in the NFL. The QB is the leader of the offensive team, the one who often calls the plays.

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