Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

Whoa, whoa ... where's the love for Kellen Clemens?

But yeah, Beck totally has my vote -- we know what Rex can do in cleanup duty but got to start thinking about the next 3-5 years.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

I prefer Beck, but I want him to earn it. His mobility is a big plus in this scheme.

I voted for JB, as long as we get a good TEAM effort this game, we should be OK. IMO.

Ben Chappell has shown excellent hand-off and kneel down skills yet he gets no love.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

Ben Chappells hand offs have been the most crisp out of the three, I agree.

Beck is taking it by a landslide.

I hope it's Beck so we can laugh at everyone who said Beck who's Beck.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

We're probably going to need them both to get through the season, so it's six in one hand and a half dozen in the other.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

I've been skeptical of Beck, but more so it's that I'm supportive of Rex. I can't quite explain it but I feel more comfortable right now with Rex as the "Oh shit! We need a QB right away backup" than I am with Beck...which has me kind of leaning toward wanting Beck as the starter.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

I voted for Grossman, soley for the reason he is a SB QB and can play in real games. To be honest I would love to see Beck take it and do great things for us, but you can't get all gaga over the guy because of one crisp performance against a crappy Colts team. Cam Newton did nice things his first preseason game, only to suck eggs his first start.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

It's obvious that many on this post don't realize how good Rex Grossman is. He only led the Bears to the super bowl his first season as a starter. That's a huge accomplishment and he should receive plenty of respect for it and he doesn't. He has a very quick release and great anticpation of the big play. Why would you want a less talented quarterback to play?

It's obvious you don't realize how bad he can also be.

We know what we have in Rex, why not see what Beck has to offer? Rex is a solid fall back plan for the short term.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

On Jan.20th 2010 this poll was conducted on which QB we thought would start the 2011 season. http://www.thewarpath.net/redskins-l...he+2011+season (Who Will Be The Redskins 2011 Opening Day Starting QB?)

We've seen 1/2 of a preseason game from John Beck and the disparity, percentage wise, between he and Rex Grossman has shrunk tremendously during that eight month period. There has to be a good reason for that.
