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

Basically, this.

Beck needs to be given his shot, basically because RG did nothing with his. He didn't prove that he could get past his interception-laden past. He didn't prove he could provide enough mobility and confidence to run a KS designed offense. He didn't prove that he could raise our per game points total. So, we move on.

Now Beck needs to prove that he can lead a team. Make throws accurately (his first time in didn't look that good, but man, would we be saying that if Stallworth made that one catch?). And he needs to say he can win when a team studies him.

All that aside, I think MS and BA have given us a team where a solid young qb can come in and make huge strides. We have a defense that doesn't give up, and doesn't give away points, opponents have to earn everything first down, and every point. We have enough of a running threat that IF a qb can keep the box from being stacked, we can move the football on the ground, and we have a young group of receivers in AA, TAustin, and Gaffney, that can give a young qb some solid targets. (Santana too if he sticks around).

Re: Start John Beck Madness Thread

Beck and Grossman are irellavant and will be irrelevant next year unless we go with another placeholder while our new QB gets an edjumakation.
Sadly, this is just a practice year for the whole team.
If we end up in the middle of the pack in the first round of the draft next year we are going to have to give up some high picks to get someone like Landry Jones.

Re: Start John Beck Madness Thread

Even if we ignore the fact that Beck has not started since 2007 and wasn't expecting to be thrown into the fire this week and had not practiced with the first team...he played GREAT. If Stallworth and Gaffney had both caught those two well-thrown, perfectly catchable deep passes from Beck, he'd be 10-15 with what, close to 180 yards and 2 TDs, with one on the ground and one in the air. Also, we could have come back to tie the game if not for the Carlos Rogers impersonations on offense.

Beck looks more poised, more mobile, more accurate, smarter in decision-making, less-flustered under pressure...light years ahead of Grossman. I really believe the reason Rex got he job was his 3 years' experience in the offense. However, his tenure makes the types of mistakes he's making even less acceptable. He should know better. He's making blunders we couldn't accept for a rookie who missed training camp. He fumbles when hit constantly. He throws into triple-coverage regularly. Yes, he has good games, but he has the same number of absolutely disastrous games. I was willing to put up with his weekly 1 fumble and 1 pick...but yesterday is just completely ridiculous and we all know this wasn't an anomaly...Rex can and likely will have more games like this if left in for 16 games.

Beck must start. I wanted him going into Week 1. I was dreading the game when "Bad Rex" appears...well, it happened. This is a game we should have easily won and we nearly did, but Rex dug a hole so deep, no one could come in and pull us out of it. However, Beck almost did in just 2 drives if the WRs could have done their job.

Even if Beck isn't a dynamic, big-play QB...he'll never be THAT bad.

Our offense STILL have given up the fewest points in the NFC and it's not even close...83 points, second is San Fran with 97 and everyone else is over 100. Only Baltimore has given up fewer points in the whole league. Our D held Vick, Jackson, Maclin and McCoy to 20 points even WITH GROSSMAN'S FOUR INTERCEPTIONS. He was practically handing them points and the D still did not let the game get away. We will have a great season and still challenge for the division title if we play Beck and the running game has the success it is capable of. Our D is currently ranked 6th in the NFL and we've played some tough teams.
