Everyone here knows what we had with Rex going in and we also recognize that Beck may fall flat. But, Beck may also emerge. Altho rare, it would not be the first time a guy like Beck surprises.

HTTR!
To the guy who Rex BEAT OUT to win the job against? I remember that last preseason game with Beck where he threw into traffic and made some very bad decisions.

Re: John Beck Era Begins

Hopefully, we can all agree that the best thing that could happen is for John beck to be successful as our starting QB. I have not been a Beck supporter but I have also been wrong before about people. It would be a pleasure for me to be wrong about John Beck.

If Beck is able to do a good job as our QB, it won't prevent the Skins from drafting a QB of the future, rather it will reduce the pressure to play that young QB before he is ready.

Let's all hope for two other things, as well, to help him succeed:

1. Let's hope that the Shanahan's will find a way to get the running game going and use it effectively.

2. Let's also hope that, when we pass, Kyle Shanahan will call plays that take advantage of both the running game, such as play action, and John Beck's strengths as a QB, such as roll outs.

I'm excited to see what happens on Sunday.

Grossman beat out Beck for the starting job at the conclusion of training camp, which means Beck has been getting scout team reps the last six weeks. But despite that, Shananan seems to feel as though Beck has come along in the last month and a half to warrant a change.

...when Shanahan was asked if he believes the 30 year old Beck could be the answer at the position for the present and the future, his answer was pretty simple.

"I don't think there's any question about it."

Now come on. What is Shanny going to say?

"I have no faith in Beck. But Grossman has sucked donkey so we thought that we were forced to change."

Re: John Beck Era Begins

I see three different scenarios:

1) John Beck is amazing. He becomes Drew Brees, and is a Pro Bowl QB, takes us to playoffs and beyond. Great news for us because we don't draft a QB and instead use our 1st round pick for other needs (OL,LB,WR,?CB).

2) John Beck really sucks. We lose most of the rest of our games, Rex comes back in by week 12. Our season is over -- BUT, good news is we may be able to draft a top 10 first round QB of the future. Still good news for us.

3) MOST LIKELY SCENARIO: John Beck is average. Given our defense, he keeps us in games & doesn't turn the ball over like Rex. However, we lose some close ones and we end up 8-8. Draft around 15 or so. Unfortunately, this is the most likely scenario and least beneficial for us. Slightly worse draft pick and uncertain future. Bet we still draft QB in this scenario, but we are now drafting the 4-5th best QB off the board.


Hoping for option #1. If Beck is great, it obviously helps our team -- but it more importantly allows us to use our high draft picks next year on other positions of need.

Re: John Beck Era Begins

I thought Beck played ok but the INT near the end of the game was a killer. You just cant make that throw with a chance to still win the game. Beck played decent enough to win but as I expected it was similar to Rex. It was the D that killed this team today.

That int was on hankerson. He had no idea what route to run, so he ran a go route. Beck was clearly expecting him to turn around and come back towards the sideline. That's on Hank for not knowing the playbook.

Re: John Beck Era Begins

Hankerson's on Twitter bitching and moaning about the INT. Saying people should stop blaming him if they weren't in the huddle. I'm like, dude save it.

Anywho, after he settled down Beck had a solid game. Hopefully he get's more comfortable in the system and finds his grove.

But I counted at least three or four plays where Rex would have either taken a sack or thrown an int. The guy has some nice wheels.

Beck played better then Rex no doubt. I'm satisfied with his performance but the D didn't do their job today.

Bullee DAT. Beck's mobility is way better than Grossman's. After the sack/strip, Beck really settled down and was able to sense the pressure better.

Re: John Beck Era Begins

Bad first half, but he showed a little mojo in him in the second half. We'll see if this is his best or if he can improve. As for Hank, he can ****ing die.
