Re: How far can Beck take us?

I brought this up in the Stallworth thread. I guess we have to wait and see who we sign and then see what happens over the next month or so.

Re: How far can Beck take us?

If he earns the job (he still has to earn the job, Shanny won't play him if he doesn't think he can win with him), I forsee him being solid.

I don't see us making deep playoff appearances with him or anything, but I think he can be a stabilizing force at the quarterback position for a few years, with a couple surprising runs here and there. He might not be elite, but he'll at least be stable.

How far? You can't win a marathon with a first time runner so i guess not to the podium.

Maybe he will take us all the way to Andrew Luck.

On what do you base these opinions? The guy hasn't thrown a pass in an NFL game since 2007! He has thrown exactly one TD in his entire four-year NFL career. I cannot see a single reason, other than blind faith in Shanny, for you to conclude that Beck can stabilize our QB position.

I don't really think that though...we are no where near the worst team in the league.

Re: How far can Beck take us?

The answer to all your doubts and fears can be found in the John Beck thread. That thread leaves no stones un-turned.

Do you want to remember Spurrier? Here, let me refresh your memory on how good of a coach Spurrier was.

He was awesome....But then the next year Spurrier comes in and we go to Dickinson for training camp and his opening meeting was, ‘You know men, I played 12 years in the NFL and went to 12 of these here training camps and I can’t remember one darn good thing I ever got out of it. But you know what, Mr. Snyder wants us to be here, so let’s try to get something done.’ ”

More:

On the preseason success: “What was weird was I was starting, I started every preseason game that year in ‘02, and we were killing people. I was like, wow, we’re awesome, I’m awesome, life is awesome, this is fantastic. And then I realized wait a minute, we actually only have two pass protections, and the Steelers are laughing at us because they say they know what our protection is, and Shane Matthews and Danny are getting blown up, and our poor running back, there’s no hot reads, there’s no sight adjusts.

On the organization: “I’m actually shocked that does decently well in college. He was by far the worst coach I ever had. Let me give you an example, his director of ops guy was the least detail-oriented dude I’ve ever met. Everyone in the NFL is like ok the bus is at 10, we’ll get there at 10:15!! The first game I was like ‘What time is the bus?’ he’s like, ehhhh, it’ll probably be around 9. I was like what are you talking about around 9? I’ve got to know. It was honestly crazy. I mean, that was not pro football. I don’t know what that was.”

On leaving: “You know what’s crazy is I got cut by him midway through the year, and I got picked up on waivers the next day by the Cowboys. So I went into Redskins Park to get my bag and all my stuff, and he looks at me and he says Cowboys, huh? And I’m like yup. And he’s like, well, don’t be telling ‘em any of my secrets. I’m sitting there thinking number one dude, your secrets are pathetic, and number 2, as soon as I get there tomorrow, I’m actually going to tell them every single thing I can remember about your pathetic offense.”

On Patrick Ramsey: “If you guys ever could, you should go back and get a sideline copy of Patrick Ramsey’s first start against the Saints. There were no hot reads or no sight adjusts. If a blitz came, his whole philosophy was to change the play at the line of scrimmage. Well, in the NFL, if it looks like the linebacker from the right’s coming, he’s not the guy coming, it’s the other guy. It’s all disguised. He would literally be on the sideline screaming out to Patrick to change the play, so Patrick would change the play, then the defense would shift, and Spurrier would be like no no no no, and there’d either be a timeout or a delay of game. Dude, it was straight high school. It was honestly hilarious. It was absolutely brutal.”
Don't compare Spurrier to Shanahan.

Comparing Spurrier to Shanny should bring about a automatic ban.

Re: How far can Beck take us?

Spurrier has funny lips, Shanny has a funny eye. That's about your comparison right there.
