Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

I like John's chances against the Ravens, he as well as Stallworth were there last year, John also ran the PT against the 1st stringers so he should know their tendencies.

However I trust the Shanahans, the best guy gets the call!

Beck, we already know who Grossman is.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

I defer until Thursday's results are in.... being the 3rd and deciding PS game for projected starters, the QB that starts this game should give a clue as to which QB will start the season. The Ravens will present the best challenge to date, opinions will be swayed either up or down for either QB at the conclusion.

FWIW, Shanny said both QBs will get time with the starters vs the Ravens.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

Beck, because I know what Rexy is capable of. Haven't seen Beck yet, but my hope is that the coaches are confident he's the best option.

For all his experience Rex still hits the panic button way too quickly. This was evident in the Pitt. game when he rushed throws due to oncoming rushers. He missed a screen that I thought he could've completed had he moved away from the rush a step. He may run the rollouts well but he doesn't seem to move well in the pocket & he virtually never runs the ball! I think that's a big part of his turnovers, he throws into coverage rather than trying to escape it.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

I'm hoping it ends up being Beck so that way if or when we succeed with Beck, Shanny can give the finger to all the critics and fans out there doubting him.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

id like beck at this point and i believe beck will be the guy. beck seems like a guy who wont take as many chances as grossman, but would have not nearly as many turnovers as rex. that said, i feel confident that both can do a good job for us.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

Voted for Beck. His athleticism and quick release makes him intriguing, and he seems like a smart guy that's not going to force things. That might be enough to help form an efficient offense with a strong running game behind him. The question is can he be a play maker? We'll see.

He also said he'd like to keep the Ravens guessing. I'll buy into the game he's playing...for now

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

I went with Beck. Grossman will make some big plays, but he'll also make some unbelievably stupid plays. Under pressure Grossman is mediocre at best. I want to see what Beck can do with his quick release and accurate throws, also seems to deal better with pressure.

That said, he's on a relatively short leash in my book. If he's not getting it done -- it's time to unleash the dragon.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

I voted for John Beck. I feel more comfortable with a veteran backup to come in and salvage games if necessary. I like the youth movement. The Redskins are looking more like a running team. The quarterback needs to complement the running game. I really like what I'm seeing with Hightower, Helu and Royster. Torain may find himself the odd man out.

Hard to argue with that
