That part has confused me this year. Where did the "f**k it I'm going deep" "chicks dig the long ball" jokes start? And it's ironic to, in the offseason Beck was the guy with the pop gun arm and Grossman was the guy that could push the ball downfield.

True, except with Rex, when it's late in the game, he makes mistake after mistake and it's been the knock on him his whole career.

I mean why do we keep on saying that the Redskins need to recreate the Hogs but God forbid we consider a QB switch, the type of coaching move that was seen relatively frequently during Gibbs I. By the way Shanahan isn't scared to bench a QB either. He benched Plummer in favor of a rookie Cutler when Plummer was a year removed from the Pro Bowl.

The bottom line is whats best for the team.

I would say that Rex doesn't have the lack of production to consider Beck. I would agree, however, that Beck doesn't have the production to consider Beck.lol

You go to Beck now you have to stick with him - barring an injury. That is the main reason I don't think it will happen. Shanny is not willing to make that gamble and potentially tank the season with the team sitting where it is. He would look like a fool if Beck came in and struggled - losing games single-handedly.

Re: Start John Beck Madness Thread

rex arm looked pretty live last year, this year not so much. i had to turn the radio dial this preseason when a natl nfl expert said rex had above avg arm strength. not this year, that expert must not have watched many rex games preseason.20-30 yds hes good enough, 40 plus yards .. well i dont think ive seen him throw a bomb inside the play of field yet.

I don't think it will happen either if I had to bet on who starts against the Eagles. However there is no rule that says you have to stick with a particular QB. It's just rare because of the time and investment needed to develop a QB and get him up to speed. Fortunately we have two QB's that got sufficient reps and attention during training camp, so the usual guidelines don't really apply here. This isn't replacing Grossman for Kerry Collins off the street the week before the season starts.

Really more then anything is it boils down to me wanting to use the bootleg as a supplement to the now productive running game.

3 pages on this already? This thread will never die, probably not for the rest of the season at least.

It'll be like the Gano has to go and the D.Hall thread. Every time Grossman farts the wrong way this thread will get bumped. lol

Re: Start John Beck Madness Thread

The problem I have with Beck is that he's a Mormon and those white Mormon choir boys are too prissy to be good leaders...

Let's see who gets that

Re: Start John Beck Madness Thread

id bet any amount of fictional internet money rex put up they worst stat line (qb rating, pass completion, yds per completion) for a qb who didnt get sacked.

i think rex' play was bad but to repeat myself, i dont think we get much more our of beck so why bother.

but you cant discount or overlook how bad rex looked. only reason we won was b/c the rams sucked, our D got 7 sacks held them to under 50 yds running and 149 yds total offense, their receivers dropped plenty of balls and we ran very well.

its amazing we won with what rex brought, really a once in a season thing imo.

What does being Mormon have to do with anything?

Then Beck stays. Duh. BUT, you do not make the change unless and until Rex - and Rex alone - loses the game.

Re: Start John Beck Madness Thread

The only thing Beck has over Grossman is this...he can run the bootleg, oh yeah, he's a bit younger. Grossman aint great, but he's average, and that is as good or better than the alternative.

At some point your QB has to be able to make plays and Rex can't consistently do so. We're not good enough for him to be a game manager. At least Beck can get out on the edge w/ his mobility and has the bigger arm. The bigger upside is w/ Beck.

That's the whole problem, you don't know if that "prevention" is actually a "prevention". It very well could make the symptom worse and not be a cure. Until his play costs us a game, you don't make the switch.
