The Washington Redskins have enough to contend with within their own conference, rather than having to fight out of every horrible situation that Rex Grossman puts them in every game. You can't go into a boxing match with handcuffs and a blindfold on, and that is what we are doing when we go into a game with Rex grossman behind center.
Because it's a Redskins message board, not a Jaguars message board.

Re: Start John Beck Madness Thread

After listening to Shanahan's presser today, I get the feeling Rex is going to be our starting QB on Sunday.. Just my opinion.

Wouldn't shock me, but I didn't necessarily get that same impression

nah, its prolly cause most teams' quarterbacks' dont have to erroneously find somewhere to place the blame when their qb throws 9 INTs in just under 15 quarters.

I know this for sure, I am so tired of seeing over half the teams in this league have competent qb play, and our quarterback is doing everything in his power for us to LOSE the game. its time we take the noose (Rex Grossman) from around our neck, and play football.

I don't know man... I wasn't really thrilled when I heard Shanahan say that he and Elway dealt with a few 5 INT days in their time together.

Re: Start John Beck Madness Thread

We'll have to agree to disagree then. Look, I get it. We all hate Sexy Rexy 'cause he blue balled our offense (see what I did there) and he unquestionably made some horrible decisions and was, more than anyone else, responsible for our loss yesterday. And as the QB he's going to get the majority of the blame (along with his past history), but he often didn't get help. And if you go around the league, there isn't any QB who is 100% responsible for all his interceptions. It's just not possible.

I'm disappointed in Grossman, absolutely. I thought his inconsistency was perhaps finally resolved. I thought after two years in this offense he was ready to have a solid, if not special year. If Beck is the starter, though I have my doubts about him, I will fully support him and hope he plays well. I'm not going to wish him a poor performance just to be right.

True, Im sure the Jaguar message board is blowing up about the way their ROOKIE quarterback has thrown 2 interceptions in 5 games. edit... (sorry, he's played 6)

If Rex grossman is starting, I will not watch it. I just dont have the intestinal fortitude for it. I will patiently wait until John Beck is able to come in and HOPEFULLY give us a better performance.

I've kind of learned to not really ever pay much attention to what Shanahan says in a press conference. And maybe Rex starts and Beck finishes. Or maybe Rex starts and plays well...and then we're all pissed because we don't want to win, we just want Rex benched!! Seriously though, I don't think any clear decision has been made yet

At the end of the day we have a winning record with him as our QB. I'd prefer to see John Beck after what we saw yesterday, but we're 3-2 with 11 games left, and we're going up against a 1-5 team (I know Carolina is scrappy, but still, 1-5).

The sky is nowhere close to falling.

Re: Start John Beck Madness Thread

If Rex starts i'll vomit every time we throw the ball because ill be so nervous.

When Beck came in, the offense looked like a Shanny offense, and Beck kinda reminded me of Jake Plummer lol
