Who do you want to start at QB?

Me personally, I would like to have Beck get his shot in the regular season. Worse case scenario we can put Rex in and know what we get from him. A lot of high and lows throughout the season.

I really like Becks footwork an ability to escape pressure. I think our O-line is the best pass protection team in the NFL when running the bootlegs, but when it comes to straight drop back passing we seem to struggle so having a guy with quick feet will really help us this season while our O-line gets better together.

I'm hoping the Shanny's give Beck the start this Thursday. Grossman already had his chance last year, and we are aware of his talents. I wanna see more Beck! Maybe because i'm biased at the moment, and i'm on the Beck bandwagon. Can't wait till Thursday!

Can we get a Poll?

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

It's hard to be different for the sake of different when there's just two poll options. Geez, Smoot, you're really cramping my style.

Grossman. Just because. Does it really matter?

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

Can you make a "whoever gives the Redskins the best chance to win this season" option? I was on the Grossman bandwagon earlier this offseason, but it's like people say, you know what you're getting with him, and Beck may or may not have a higher ceiling. I'm gonna take the easy way out and wait until after the Ravens game . Even if either of them has good seasons, I don't think it matters long term, because they're both 30 or older.

Man, no "I'd be happy with either guy as they both seem to have a lot to offer" option?

You make it hard to fence sit...

Exactly. We don't even know who's going to start against the Ravens, though I'd put my money on Beck. Whether Beck plays well against the Ravens is the true money question in my mind, because I can't vote based on how he played against the Colts. If Beck plays nothing like he did last Friday against the Colts, I'd vote Grossman. Barring that happening, I'd vote Beck. Too early to call.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

GIVE BECK A CHANCE! Clearly runs the offense efficiently. Given more time and opportunities he will only get better. Plus I like his feet as well.

I also want to see him start this Thursday against the Ravens. We've seen Rex against good defenses (Steelers this pre season,Giants last year) so we should Beck the equal opportunity.

Re: Who do you want to start at QB?

Probably shows my kool-aid level, but I want to trust the Shanahan's and I want Beck to show the media that he is capable. Like someone else said, I would rather give Beck his shot early, if he fails bring in Grossman to finish out the season.
