Re: How far can Beck take us?

He is a team guy! Beck realizes it takes a team to win; He ain't taking nobody anywhere by himself. I like that quality about Beck. Grossman is a little more cocky, but the team needs confidence from the QB position. Beck& Gman will be a serviceable guys for the team whoever starts until we find the "franchise QB" which in my opinion is an overrated need right now. Strong, Fast, tough Defense and Offensive Playmakers = Playoffs

From ESPN NFC bEast blog -
"A preseason game can have value for a team like the Redskins. No, the result doesn't matter. And no, you can't assume they'll look as good in real games as they have so far in two fake ones. But think about where the Redskins are right now. Nobody thinks they're any good. Everybody thinks they'll finish last. They've got people saying they could be the worst team in the league (which I seriously doubt). And while they can pretend they don't hear it, they all have the internet, and cable TV, and AM radio in their cars. And even if they don't pay attention to any of that stuff, they all have friends and relatives who undoubtedly keep them posted on it. But world-class professional athletes aren't inclined to doubt themselves, and having success -- even if it's on a micro level in a game that doesn't count -- is the kind of thing that can bolster confidence internally when nothing's happening to bolster it externally. This is two weeks in a row that the Redskins peeled the tape off their ankles and went home feeling good about themselves. And a team that's going to be an underdog in the majority of its games this season can benefit greatly from knowing what it's like to feel that way. "
Not the same thing really, but whatever

I realize its not about media influencing players joining or not joining a team. But I thought it was quasi relevant.


About the long ball, I thought people said he was throwing up dead ducks in camp on the long ball?

Re: How far can Beck take us?

His long ball's problem has been accuracy. Overthrowing his receivers and stuff.

But Matt Schaub only averaged 3 long balls(passes that traveled 20+ yards) a game in Kyle Shanahan's last season with the Texans.

Also, if you stack the box, it's to stop the run, not the pass. The intermediate passes(around 15 yards) will be there.

It's always neat to check out what people say both before and after. I was just looking at some of the earlier post in this thread (and others) comparing what was being said about Beck before he played 1/2 of a preseason game and what's being said now. Someone said I reserve the right to change my mind.

Well maybe if the mind was not so prematurely made up, a change would not be necessary.

NFL.com news: Beck shows command of 'Skins system; Browns' McCoy sharp


» John Beck could be an effective starting quarterback for the Redskins. The fifth-year pro was exceptional directing the first-team offense against the Colts. He showed an excellent command of the system, completing 14 of 17 attempts for 140 yards and leading the Redskins to scores on each of his four possessions. Beck frequently located his second and third reads in his progressions. His pocket awareness, anticipation and accuracy were better than anticipated, and he also flashed enough athleticism to be a credible threat on the perimeter. Granted, the effectiveness of the Redskins' run game -- Tim Hightower and Roy Helu combined for 171 yards on 20 carries -- allowed Beck to work comfortably off play-action fakes inside and outside of the pocket. Given his superb execution and production during his first appearance as the starter, it is easy to see why Mike Shanahan is willing to stake his reputation on the unheralded Beck."

Hmm, this Bucky Brooks guy seems to be a good reporter, unlike that JLC fellow.

Re: How far can Beck take us?

Would like to know how he would have done against the Steelers ones.... colts secondary is just .. not good. ... redzone still a concern no matter who the qb is... still I'm no suck for luck rider, and it was, just one half in the pre season against a Indy secondary that is sub par at best.........
I'm gonna keep watching and keep my wait and see attitude ...

I wouldn't mind the win and trade for Luck alternative. But I assume no one that has the ability to draft Luck will give that up so easily.

You post a very interesting postion shared by many:
Your position is "it's only one half, still plenty of time for you to suck JB"

To many others is "Great half JB, you might be good at this QB stuff yet".
...........I guess you know what camp you are in?
