Re: How far can Beck take us?
The question posed was "How far can Beck take us"?
My first thought was that he could take us as far as Reston. But he surprised me by performing well against the Colts. So now I'm thinking he can take us as far as Tyson's Corner.
But seriously, for me, I think I've been hesitant to trust in Mike Shanahan enough to think that Beck could do the job. After Spurrier, Zorn, and Vinny, it's not easy for me to trust again. But I like the way Shanny is trying to build this team and I'm trying to keep an open mind about Beck as our interim starter for a year or two until we land that Franchise QB I think we need to put us in the playoff picture on an annual basis.
Nevertheless, the Colts are notoriously bad in preseason. So, I'm tempering any enthusiasm I have for Beck based on that.
On the other hand, the Ravens defense is never bad. They come at their opponents hard every time they play, even in preseason. If Beck plays well against the Ravens, then I'm going to start to think that he might be able do a good job as the Skins starting QB for the next year or two.
