Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. We have been fooled more than twice now, way more than twice if you go back to Heath Shuler. Why do you all think Beck is the better option? Just because he is more mobile than Grossman? Remember Vick at ATL? He was mobile as hell, but couldn't get the job done in the passing game. Grossman is Mr. Cool in the pocket, Beck is great in the bootleg. How many guys in the NFL went to the SB doing the bootleg all the time? Grossman has actually started more than one season worth of games. Mr. Beck only 4. I get razed a lot for taking Gus Frerotte for me screen name, as he was a mediocre QB, but at least he made the Pro Bowl, etc. This Beck doesn't look so much more promising the Gus, so why do you jump on the bandwagon so to speak? Grossman could elevate his game to starter status right away, while Beck is 30 and yet to be a regular starter. I understand why you aren't completely sold on Rex, but why do you think Beck is going to light it up or even just do better than Rex? His audition for the job hasn't been so hot.
I stopped reading when I got to that.. Mr. Cool int he pocket

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

Can I just say that as I read through this thread my initial "good feeling" buzz from the preseason is fading fast. Let's face it:

As to Grossman, he has shown that when he is good, he is better than good enough to win. Unfortunately, both last year and in the preseason, he has shown (to me at least) that he hasn't shaken his bad habits. I saw nothing to convince me Bad Rex is tucked safely away in closet somewhere.

And then there's Beck, God help us all, he says all the right things, he has nice athleticism, a more than adequate arm and has the whole "late-bloomer" mystique working for him. Against Indy, he was terrific, he anticipated throws, had a nice quick release and really had a good tempo. But then Tampa happened - did anyone else watch him stare down receivers and make several "Dear God No!!!" throws?

I love the team except for the QB position and secondary. While I think the secondary may prove adequate, I am not so convinced about any choice made at the QB position.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

In the end I don't think either guy is a savior, nor do they need to be. Our success is going to hinge more on our defense and running game. All we need is efficient QB play and someone who doesn't single handedly give away games.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

I'm so sick of losing.

I know we aren't going to be world beaters this year.

I just hope whoever they pick really makes the most of the opportunity.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

I wonder who does Kyle Shanahan want as his starting QB? My idea is let's go with whoever Kyle wants. Last time we didn't, we got stuck with McNabb.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

That's interesting.. Hopefully he can perform at a high level and help us win games without throwing them away.

Shanny is a man of his word. He preaches competition, and no matter how badly he wanted Beck to become the starter. Rex stepped up and performed to win the job.

Haha.. I was being sarcastic. I believe Rex has what it takes to wins a lot of games for us this year. He looks solid last year, and good in preseason this year. As long as he doesn't turn into the turnover machine he'll be good to go.

History likes to repeat itself. Some chump from the Giants will injure Rex, then we roll with Beck all the way to the Super Bowl and beyond.

That's exactly how I felt, even more that Beck's chances just went up.

(If JLC is right it will be the first time in a while that he broke Skins news.)
