Re: Start John Beck Madness Thread

You read the forum rules! You're a rare breed. Kudos. I'm not sure anyone has said Rex is the reason we are 3-1. But I would say that I am one of those who has said benching Rex when we're 3-1 for an unproven Beck when evidence shows we can't put ALL out blame on Rex seems like a potentially risky proposition. I'm rooting for Beck if he's playing. But just because I'm not 100% comfortable making the switch to him doesn't mean I don't know football.

Oh no, I didn't mean to imply that anyone who thought that way were idiots, just the ones who only had that to say. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

REx's arm isnt his problem, he's too short. IMO he really struggles to see over the line and down the field. I think his lack of vision is what causes most of his INTs.

I dont have a problem with them swapping in Beck (if I was HC I wouldnt do it just yet) but I dont expect the QB production to change much for the better or worse with Beck.

Re: Start John Beck Madness Thread

I think at this point we all know Rex is not the answer so lets move on. Beck may or may not take us to the playoffs but he may not hinder the development of the team as a whole. Rex was setting the "same ol Redskins" mentality IMO. In both players and fans.

The players believed in the team this year, some of them actually made bold predictions to the point of a possible SB run. If Beck can at the least just play solid, he may give us that spark back and allow for further development of the players around him.

Beck should have been given the entire 2nd half of the Eagles game. I think he made the most of the little time had.

There is something about Beck I believe in...

Yes I have an odd feeling that Shanny is going to come out in defense of Rex and name him the starter for this week. I think most of us will shake our heads at the move but we have to believe that Shanny knows more than we do about the QBs, right?

It's gotta be Beck.

The Rexy reclamation project didn't work, now they have 2nd chance to bring a QB back from the ashes.

Re: Start John Beck Madness Thread

I wasn't a fan of replacing Rex a week ago, but what a difference a week makes. I don't think you can put Rex back out there after that performance yesterday, and given the fact that Beck came in and provided a slight spark and gave the team a chance. Beck's overall performance was a little shaky too, but with a full week's reps with the first team and executing the game plan in practice I think he has to produce better results (at least not worse - I hope) than we have received from Rexy.

Of course I don't think you can just keep flip-flopping your QBs so I would expect this team to live or die with Beck now...unless he gets injured.

That would make a sweet story.

Beck can do more with his feet and with two starting Olinemen down I think that is going to be key in the next few weeks.

If Beck does anything, the fact we got him for Doug Dutch will make it one of the best trades ever

Re: Start John Beck Madness Thread

I was pushing for Beck in the offseason b/c I felt like we knew Grossman's limitations and that we had a large enough sample size that we knew he was going to cost us some games. Many people made the same argument.

Many people pushed for Grossman b/c they felt Beck has had ample opportunity to show he could start but he failed to take the job in his prior stops or even show enough to rate as a good solid number 2 guy and that, based on his inability, he simple could not succeed as a QB.

My fear is that both arguments were 100% right. We've already seen that the Rex dissenters were pretty damn close to right on.

Re: Start John Beck Madness Thread

Shanahan mum on whether Redskins will switch to John Beck after Rex Grossman's poor showing - The Insider - The Washington Post

Washington Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan declined to say whether the switch to John Beck is permanent or was just for the final quarter of the 20-13 loss to the Eagles. Instead the coach said that the decision wouldn’t be made until Wednesday.

“I would never announce that right after a game,” Shanahan said. “I would announce that later on in the week. We’ll make a decision after looking at the film.”

You can't argue that both are bad. It's one or the other! You're an idiot. :cheeky-sm
