Beck, naturally. Better the devil you don't know than the one you do? Sounds good to me.

Personally if that did happen I don't think it would last too long, mainly because for all the ints that have been receivers fault, Grossman's personal ints have been just as bad if not worse. I'm fine with going with Beck from this point on, but you never know what our coach is thinking.
That's totally absurd. I don't think any coach would ever openly tell a QB and all his teammates that this is the QB's last chance. What the hell would that do to a locker room? Sheesh.

Maybe Brian Billick would? I don't think I would do it, because as a coach you're opening up yourself to all kinds of hypothetical scenarios which might possibly not be beneficial, but you never know. But then again, I don't have eyes and ears inside the locker room, so I wouldn't have an idea of how this will proceed.

My gut instinct is that they'll go with Beck, because Grossman has been on a steady decline since his game against the Giants, and it's clear he's still the same quarterback he's always been, whereas Beck has apparently played better in practice (according to Mike Shanahan) and didn't look as bad as Grossman in the game.

No, not at all. If we truly want to win this season get Carson Palmer. The Bengals are ready to deal. VY is a headcase. He can't make the adjustment from God at Texas to just a NFL starting QB. In saying this, I am not saying I want Palmer, just saying if you want a real franchise type QB NOW get Palmer. Young is a wash in my book. Yeah, you can get him cheap, but he would be another McNabb at best.

Carson Palmer is not going to be an upgrade IMO.He wasnt that good last yr and to bring him off the street with no training camp and think he's going to be better than what weve got doesnt make sense to me,but i dont want to argue about it,just my opinion

Rex is like blood in the water...the Defense smell it the minute he steps on the field. Right now Beck has the confidence that this team needs to see in the huddle.

Why did you think that would be interesting? Honest question, after all there was a poll where I believe a large majority wanted Beck but a substantial minority wanted Grossman. Also, not many of us(if any) are sold on Beck or Grossman leading this team after this year, and so why would a thread where a fan base comes to accept the decision made by their team be of any exciting interest? Again, seriously wondering what made you think it.
