He probably didn't look at the game log section in Rex's stat sheet for that season. Rex is truly the Jekyll/Hyde of quarterbacks.

Serious (or mostly so) question based on the bolded part. If Rexy took a team to the SB with "virtually little experience", why shouldn't Beck be able to?

I am not implying that Beck will, only that it's not unreasonable to let a "virtually inexperienced" QB, that has some level of talent, lead a team, and that team see success.

Can't wait to see how both QB's do tonight.

...and on that note. Start the Pre-Season Game 3 thread.

Thats a little much.

Yeah Grossman I would say is the better QB NOW. Shanny is hedging Beck has the best and higher upside to lead the offense. We will see, I think the overall feeling is why the hell not give Becks the opportunity. Everyone knows what your gonna get with Grossman: questionable decision making in pivitol situations. Rex's got the arm and ok accurancy, if Rex decision making was better on the field, there would not be a competition at this point and he would be the starter. I dont think the risk is that high with this team as we rebuild.

Mrs. Grossman, please calm down -- I am sure your son is a wonderful quarterback but there is no need for such a visceral reaction.

Seriously man, relax -- 99% of the people on this board just want to see the Redskins win. At the moment, Beck is in vogue. As soon as Grossman plays better, he will be back in vogue. The skins have been without a legit quarterback for so long that noone really cares who runs the offense so long as we score points and win games.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

I'm not sure how you can say Grossman is a better QB than someone you've hardly seen play.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

I am torn. I am really enamored of Grossman's first preseason game, but I think Beck has been around long enough to become acclimated to the system. We'll see. I really think it's Beck's position to lose. Let's see...

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

Grossman looks to make big plays and it's exciting to watch him play. He's started only about 30 games in his career so all this "We know what we get from Rex," is really just an ignorant statement. You let Grossman play and you'll win. Beck doesn't have a tenth of the moxie that Grossman brings to the quarterback position. Open up your eyes because some Redskins fans want to see a winning product.

Why has he only started 30 games?

If this team wins it wont hinge with the QB play. To be able to win, we gotta run the ball very effectively and play solid defense. I think our QB play can assist with winning, but whats will hurt us more will be bad QB play i.e. bad turnovers

I'd say because the Bears had an awful offensive coaching staff before Martz got there.
