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.)

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

Shanahan would have to be crazy to stick with Rex. 4 horrible picks, 9 on the year. It's time for a change.

Rex definitely isnt playing too good but I think QB is the one position where extra time has to be taken before a change is made because of the timing and rhythm of the O. Skins fans are so used to constant change that the second something goes sideways they want a new player in there and in this case I just dont see a change making much of a difference. I think you gotta give Rex half a season. If Beck was a rookie I think I'd make the switch but he's a career back-up who's had his chances and never done anything. The time might come for Beck but to me its still too soon.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

The discussion has been had, but when did Beck have his regular season chance? On a 1-15 team with a HC headed out the door? He stepped in, played poised, and ought to get the next start. Hopefully film study tells the Shanahan's the same thing everyone else saw, that 3 out of 4 of RG's int's were bad decisions. Had he just tucked it, and not forced, the outcome might have been different.

Normally I would probably agree with having some patience and giving him a few more games, but Rex is what he is, and he's only proven that these past few games where he's drastically regressed.

It's time to cut the cord on Rex. I think we've seen enough to know he's not going to get any better.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

Looks like this might split the locker room. Santana Moss, D.Young, and Jabar Gaffney have all publicly stated they think Rex should remain the starter.

Not.Good.

They'll support whoever the starter is. Until a change is officially made, they're just backing up their guy.

True, Rex is what he is but Beck also is what he is which is why I dont really see that a change will make much of a difference.

I think you're making a big deal out of nothing. What do you want Santana to say? That they should bench a teammate of his? That'd be worse. He stood by his QB. Said every player has bad games. Just like if he had 5 drops, Rex wouldn't say "well, time to sit his ass and activate Hankerson"
