Re: How far can Beck take us?

To be honest I will take 6 to 8 wins (though hoping for more obviously) over the next two years as long as we start seeing some young exciting talent on this team! Think Beck will start this year and do ok not great not terrible, we will then draft a QB next year (not Luck as he will go #1) and then Beck will start next year as well. In 2013 we will hopefully have a good young QB behind center who has had a year to sit and learn the offense and our D should be nicely gelled by then. So Beck probably cant get us back into contention but hopefully he can be the bridge until we get there.

If we get a WR, an interior lineman, a right tackle, get cullen jenkins, and resign buchanon we have enough pieces to be contenders if our qb can perform at a high enough level. Cullen, buchanon, the right tackle are all locks IMO. This is a completely hypothetical situational question. IF we fill enough holes, how far can Beck take us?
I read the question as its stated, how far can Beck take us, I didnt see where it said or implied if lots of holes are filled how far can Beck take us. You are correct, every team does have holes but the Skins have as many holes as a piece of Swiss cheese. This team isnt going anywhere. This is a 8-8 team at best.

Re: How far can Beck take us?

I think how we start determines everything. Should we come out to a start 2-2, 3-1, I think we can be a legitimate team, especially within the division where dallas is falling apart, and new york suffers perpetual collapses. 1-3, 0-4, and im in favor of officially designating it a rebuilding year. Theres no sense in going 8-8 when the one piece you really need in Andrew Luck, or more likely, Landry Jones, is going to be available around the 10th pick.

Re: How far can Beck take us?

2013 will be the start of NFL's next dynasty. We'll be the 1970s Steelers and 1980s 49ers of the new millennium.

3 SB wins in 5 years.


Hey, this thread needed a wild prediction.

Re: How far can Beck take us?

If nothing else, John Beck can at least drive our team rep to the airport to fly to New York to select our franchise qb of the future at the NFL draft. He's gotta be good for something.

If he gets to the airport they wont recognize him and wont let him park.

Re: How far can Beck take us?

Man, this Beck guy is hilarious. He has all the confidence in the world that's for sure. Let's hope he can show us more than "the best that he can" because that probably won't be good enough in the NFL.


John Beck: 7-29

You Go Beck....get your 15 min shine on!

Re: How far can Beck take us?

With Beck or Grossman we are about a .500 team, max this year...and that's ok.. Seriously, take a look at our roster from January 2010 vs. our roster today. Shanny is setting things up, assuming this draft & FA crop develops to be a 'plug in the QB' roster away from competing. It's hilarious how people are acting like we just gave Beck a 5 year-$65 million extension.. He's basically on a 1 year deal, Clemens is on a 1 year deal, Rex will likely sign no more than a 2 year deal.. We aren't locked into anything. Beck is clearly a stopgap and if he performs, great. If not, the rest of the team develops while we bring in a rookie or vet next year.

Re: How far can Beck take us?

It's really funny how, after years of bitching about spending money on self-entitled jerkwards who come in and are totally lazy bastards, who put no work and no effort into being the best, we finally found a guy who is a self-starter, who is motivated, who's working his ass off to make the football team and be a good player...and people shit on him.

The vitriol towards Beck is effing ridiculous. What the hell is everyone's problem with the guy? That he has the balls and the belief that he can be a starting quarterback?

"HAR HAR HAR, WHAT A LOSER! He wants to come to our team and is motivated to put in the time and effort that Donovan McNabb and Jason Campbell wouldn't to be a starting quarterback! What a maroon! What a jerk! Can't wait until we bench this guy and bring in another quarterback yet another football team didn't want! Because giving up draft picks and a signing a guy monster contract to a guy worked so well the first friggin time!"

What ungrateful pricks this fanbase must be, to crap on a dude who's only crime against them has been he has the audacity to believe he can be a starting quarterback. To ignore every circumstance of his time in the NFL and judge him based on four games his rookie year.

Let him earn the friggin' job, or completely suck balls, before we sit around talking about what a failure he is. It's starting to disgusting how so called fans of this team and the media at large are pretty much picking on the dude and ragging on him ever chance they get.

He's easily more motivated to be the best quarterback he can be than ANY of the Redskins starters since friggin' Mark Rypien.

Re: How far can Beck take us?

I'm firmly on the Beck bandwagon. Hey why not, we tried the big name approach last year and it was a fail. We've got nothing to lose.
