Who knows, he may have been outstanding in that role and shown that he can take the next step up the ladder.

I know your kidding to some extent but in a way I will agree with that. He had the #2 role at the end which could have given him different responsibilities during the week for the coaches to evaluate.

Beck having a year under his belt to learn the system from the sideline may in fact be ready to challenge Rex for the starting QB position. That said, I don't think they are just going to "hand the keys" to him without him winning the position over in camp. I do believe they'll try to bring in either Hasslebeck or Young to compete as well.
I was not trying to imply that Beck was not in their plans at all. Obviously they like him somewhat if he is still on their roster. I just don't believe he is "plan A" for opening day starter like the TV guys were specualting during the draft. I would imagine that every QB that ends up on their roster will have a chance to compete for the job.

There does not appear to be a firm commitment on either player. Sounds more like an open competition.

Orton is an upgrade over Rex folks, lets be real here. He's had a pretty good 2 years in Denver

It's clear at least from this article Denver is definitely in the market for a 4-3 defensive lineman with an eye towards free agency. Haynesworth is not a free agent but we do know they're looking, how far they would be willing to go in his pursuit is a good question.

Re: Redskins 2011 Starting Quarterback: John Beck?

rex played well to end the season. he threw for over 300 yards in 2 of his 3 starts, had more touchdowns than interceptions, and had over an 80 qb rating. if he or beck puts up numbers like that over the length of a season, we will be fine at QB. not spectacular, but passable for this season. these 2 qbs seem to fit the system which is the most important thing. im ok with this right now. im happy with how we drafted and we should be stronger than last year even with our current qb situation.

Orton could be available unless it is their intention to ultimately keep both he and Tebow. Elway hints Tebow could be the man.

19 minutes in and we finally get our first Tebow question from Ken, an original ticket holder.

Fox, answering Ken's question about if #15 could be traded, said it hasn't been "a remote possibility."

I don't know. The New England offense makes me worry about other QB's when they get outside that system. See Matt Cassel during his first year away from New England, as well as Brady Quinn and Jimmy Clausen.

Besides Orton had Lloyd, the best receiver ever

Either way I will take Year 3 Grossman over Year 1 Orton.

Not buying it til I see it. There is no way that John Elway is sold on the guy.

He's been ok but the guy is just an average NFL QB. If it's an upgrade it's a very small one. I'd want a draft pick for Al, not a QB that isn't going to make the team better.
