I wondered about YOung too after the dallas game, but the running game & pass pro was great yesterday.
I would have thought maybe Austin would get a shot with AA sitting

A. Pettis may remember him for a little more than his blocking. lol

Also starting Beck against a divisional foe next week would be a bad move anyway.

I think a lot of this is frustration (for me anyway), that I think this offense has the ability to really really be good and there's some missing piece and I can't figure out wtf.
Sitting Rex is exactly what we could use against a divisional foe. No film to study the guy, unexpected mobility which would cause the defense to keep atleast one linebacker in to spy, because if they don't there is territory to claim in the flats for a running John Beck coming off play action bootleg against a defense that will most likely show our offense some form of base cover 2, which we've seen for the past 2 weeks. With one less LB dropping back it could open up the middle of the field for more intermediate crossing, seam, and skinny post routes.

As for Beck, and his overall ability, it's impossible to know, simply because we haven't seen enough of him to make an accurate assessment. From what I saw of him in the preseason he seems to keep his eyes dowfield in the face of pressure, he works through his progressions quickly, he's willing to adjust by gliding away from pressure, and has the innate ability to complete improvisational throws outside of the pocket. He's taller than Grossman which gives him a distinct advantage when it comes to recognizing throwing lanes, batted balls and noticing coverage downfield. He can manifest throws from awkward positions(leaping in the air off of his back foot, falling to the turf). More importantly, there will never be another team vying for Grossman's services. He is a mediocre system oriented QB. Anyone can see that. If we play Beck, and he happens to inspire awe from other franchises around the league, you can potentially deal him for a future draft pick. If he performs well in the system you might even think about hanging onto him as an interim QB until you can prime a rookie to take over. Do you really want Rex's poor decision making and fearful demeanor in the pocket rubbing off on a impressionable rookie.

The fact that the curiousity exists to see what the next guy can do ultimately means that your intuition is taking over. Follow that, because it is usually the best course of action.

Re: Start John Beck Madness Thread

Man, the backup QB really always is the "best player" on the team. "He can manifest throws from awkward positions..."

shakes head, walks away

Re: Start John Beck Madness Thread

I like Becks attitude and Rex is still uber sketchy...but the Skins are 3-1, Rex hasn't made them lose yet. so its not justifiable to pull him.."may have" and "almost" plays don't really count in my book.

I don't recall saying he was the "best player", just that there are indicators eluding to him being a better player than Rex. If you go back and watch the preseason film those throws are evident.

I'm simply making deliberate case to support a transition to Beck. I'd rather do that then throw out back handed remarks that ultimately amount to nothing.

Couldn't have said it better. Shanahan did the right thing this past offseason, purge the team of the old culture, bring in a strong and deep surrounding cast that works with his system. It builds the foundation. Now he can go get the QB of the future who can come into a half decent situation.

Neither Rex nor Beck are going to win us a SB.

Re: Start John Beck Madness Thread

I'm not completely happy with Rex Grossman, but the Redskins are 3-1. Maybe the bye week will help improve on some things Rex has been struggling with. I believe until the Redskins start getting on a bad losing streak, it's probably smartest to stick with Rexy.

Re: Start John Beck Madness Thread

I didn't you said he was the best...and is that really so great an accomplishment? That Beck can complete an awkward pass every once in a while?

More of an accomplishment then having an active QB who can't.

If you go back and watch Beck in the last preseason game, you have an argument for sticking with Grossman.

Man, we are 3-1 and people want to switch the QB. Amazing.

What exactly would that say to the locker room?

Head coach makes a firm decision and chooses his starter.

The team starts the season strong and exudes an excellent sense of community and commitment.

Work hard, play for the men next to you and when you earn your starting spot the coaches will back you up with the exact same dedication.

Shanahan walks into the locker room. Wearing his two Super Bowl rings.

"Hey guys we've decided to throw an absolute NFL nobody into the fire this week......just to see what happens. This other guy what's his name again..John. yeah this John Beck character over here... that's right that 30 year old guy right over there hiding in his locker..the one sucking his thumb right now..yeah that guy..he has UPSIDE according to some of the fans. What do we have to lose guys! It's not like we could go 4-1 or anything. Ok good talk. I'm off to go get sized for a new clown costume."

Let's be reality.

Not while Aaron Rodgers is under center. Guy has officially arrived as the leagues best QB.
