Re: How far can Beck take us?

Camp is just getting started, I wouldn't read too far into these updates. Seems like opinions on Beck differ depending on who you listen to.

Seems to differ depending on who likes Beck's stuff and who doesn't.

There is a short piece in today's Wash Post saying the same thing. Not good. In a QB league I just dont see how the Skins can expect to compete without one.

Re: How far can Beck take us?

We have not even gotten to preseason games yet...calm down, people.

Spurrier's offense was lighting up everyone at this point. That ended well.


Besides, we just had a huge lockout. There's bound to be rust even with the pickup games they played over the summer.

Give Beck a chance. If he fails, Rex is there.

I think the mentality of most fans are that they don't want to give Beck a chance because he's not a well known player...You can't become Drew Brees or Peyton Manning riding the bench for the past four seasons...

I really hope Shanny's right about Beck. After a swing and a miss on McNabb, if there's a 'strike two' on Beck, expect to see torches and pitchforks in Ashburn.

It's 7 on 7. Every QB in the NFL should look good in 7 on 7.

But you could be the next Trent Green.

I don't even think it's that complicated. Redskins fans are impatient. They always demand "results now" and also give up on people at the blink of an eye. Look how many "fire Shanahan" comments and threads we had in YEAR 1!


Welcome to the site, new guy.

I just think if the organization wants to win now, and it looks like they do, then they should go out and try and sign Bulger. He was the best FA out there and he's better than anyone we currently have.

Our running game should be huge this year. A ton of good RBs and a better line...Beck may not need to do a lot.

And you could probably say that about every Qb in the first days of training camp.

Welcome to the site, new guy.
Well if the front office didn't shove a win now approach down our throats then perhaps the fans would be more patient. I know I would. If this QB situation blows up in the Shanahans faces, and it's a good chance it will, then the heat is really going to be on them, both from Snyder and the fans. And what if Blaine Gabbert gets time and plays well????

For the record, I'm not passing any sort of judgment on Beck at this point whatsoever. 3 or 4 games into the regular season, then I'll start pontificating.

This just happened to be the very first bits of any news that I've heard on his performance good or bad, and I decided to post it.

Agreed. I think the O-line and the defense overall will be improved quite a bit. Our success won't hinge as much on QB play as last year. But I'm still not sold even one little bit on any QB on our roster.

I'd still like to bring Dennis Dixon into the fold. I don't think he's a franchise QB or anything, but it sure would make things that much more interesting this year.
