Hightower video added.


Why can't I edit the first post? It seems on a lot of my post lately the edit option isn't available.

Re: Game Tape: Preseason Week 2 vs Colts

I just don't understand the Shanahan's at times. Last year when McNabb was pulled they starting calling screens plays all of a sudden for Rex. Now with Beck it's like they decide to just run one slant after another trying to help him out.

Grossman has a significantly better arm after watching the first two pre-season games and why they feel the need to protect who they like is beyond me. I'll take the guy who slings it down field over the check down guy who can't get in the endzone.

If Rex isn't the starter week 1, shame on Mike Shanahan/Kyle Shanahan.

Yes. That's it. The Shanahan's are deliberately sabotoging QBs careers because they don't like them. Yup, they wasted a 2nd and 4th rounder JUST to trade for a QB to watch him fail by hampering him with plays that don't fit his skill set.




Fans see what they want to see.

Do you not get it? This is after they'd come to the conclusion that they royalty messed up with the McNabb trade.

You can't tell me for one second that Rex didn't get plays called that were essentially "safe plays" when they went to him to end the season. It was not a coincidence that he was running screen plays and short passes, similar to John beck on Friday.

Make them both run the same plays and go deep like Kyle's "system" is supposedly set up for and see who's the better quarterback, because in my eyes Rex is the better runner and the better passer.

I thought you might go with the handling of the McNabb situation or the Albert situation last year after that statement, which I would agree with you. I think what you have to remember is everyone including the Shanny know what you have with Rex, they are giving a chance to someone who's never had one before and had shown some talent in the past. Would you rather go 7-9, 8-8 with Rex or would you see if this guy can grow into the offense, become a leader, and help this team compete in a highly volatile nfc east where nothing is for sure this year? Personally Im not convinced, but we already know what we got with Rex, lets give the guy a chance.

Well said Chico! My response was going to be far more.....venomous.
