Before I get misunderstood, I'm for playing Beck this week.

But, in context, I'm not sure about statements like that. Certainly Beck can't be worse than Wrecks against the Eagles. But he definitely can be worse than Wrecks against the Giants.

Of course my statement is without merit, because nobody knows for sure. We'll find out soon enough though.

Sorry 12th, you're an insightful guy and I did not mean to pick on you personally. But I've heard a lot of folks make similar statements. You are correct, we'll all get educated more soon.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down

There will be no major upgrade or down grade by starting Beck, both him and Rex are stop gaps at that position. So arguing about which should be in is fruitless the are the same level of talent/skill their only difference is their names.

Really? Only an idiot would make such an absolute statement! I would humbly suggest that it is quite possible that Beck could be worse than "Eagles' game" Rexy. It is unlikely, but, given this will be Beck's first start in many years and that he has failed before, I don't think anything can be ruled out.

I hope he won't and don't believe he will - I am just suggesting that an abysmally bad John Beck performance is not out of the realm of the reasonably possible.

This sadly is true.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down

So what if Beck starts Sunday and throws 3 ints's and has a piss poor game? Then what? Might as well start him and see what ya got, cause everyone in the world of pro football knows what you got in Rexy, im not bashin Rex he just is what he is at qb, a band aid.

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down

3-2 ... I don't think this team deserves to be smacked down so hard after that loss .. not after they stood strong and fought to get back in that game .. when D-Hall made that pic @ the 20. That should have been 6 pts, instead Rex (who i've supported since game 1) made a bonehead play. At that point in would have been 20-13 with some serious momentum, who knows. But it didn't happen and Rex got worse by the minute and it showed BADLY. Beck provides just enough wiggle out of the pocket and he looks hungry, i truly thought Rex was going to have a solid SEASON but I have changed my tune quickly. Beck is going to be #1 unless he gets hurt. We have dangerous Panthers team next week then big match up with Bills in Toronto. 4-3 or possible 5-2 we are in a whole different mindset. 3-4 would be donski for the Skins'. I sure hope not,this DEFENSE is too good to let that happen. Shannys will get running game back on track, I have faith and I'm not ready to throw in the towel yet. Lots of football left. HTTR

Beck as soon as he came in had a look of "i'm not coming back out again unless i'm carted off" .. Rex had a look on sidelines like "f*** me"

Again... the helmet to helmet hits are going to happen. It can't be avioded. That call on Orakpo should've gotten that ref suspended. Not only was it a god awful call but it was a momentum killer and had an effect on the outcome of the game.
Orakpo went helmet to helmet, so at least there was something substancial to flag. The problem was that the call of "roughing the passer" is incredibly generous there. Vick wasn't stepping into a throw to complete a pass, he was doing the only thing he could do to not be on his one yard line on the next play.

By the same token, Ronnie Brown was technically a "passer" on his goal line fumble against the 49ers, but he wasn't "roughed", he was tackled. If the passer is standing in the pocket and is defenseless, then give him protection on helmet to helmet. Once he flushes from the pocket, now the process of tackling gets more complicated, and I don't think you can flag helmet to helmet anymore at that point.

Brutal call.
