I wish him well and hope Beck can be a viable option for this team. With the o-line injuries and potential lack of a ground game I am a bit concerned for his health.

Hoping for the best! HTTR!

Re: John Beck Era Begins

Anyone else find it amusing that both Rex and McNabb are benched the same week?

Rightfully so I might add.

I really have to agree with this. Missing in all the luck hype is that next year is a pretty deep qb class.

Would have been nice for us if McNabb wasn't benched yet

Interesting the different QB decisions The Genius Shanahan Brain Trust has made since they've been here:

1) Decides not to re-sign Campbell
2) Trades a 2nd round pick (and another pick, I forget which round) for Donovan McNabb
3) Trades for John Beck
4) Signs Rex Grossman
5) Benches Donovan McNabb (then has a disastrous presser explaining why)
6) Starts Rex Grossman the remainder of 2010
7) Trades Donovan McNabb for a side of rice pilaf
8) Praises John Beck in the offseason like he's God's gift (Kyle wanted him 10th overall in Houston, etc etc)
9) Starts Rex Grossman after an open competition in camp
10) Benches Rex Grossman 5 weeks into the season (I agree with this decision wholeheartedly)
11) Names John Beck the starter.

WHEW!! Let's hope he starts hitting on some of his quarterback decisions.

Re: John Beck Era Begins

A better question: does McNabb make the HOF? If you only look at his body of work at Philly you could make a case.

Re: John Beck Era Begins

Good. Hopefully, we'll see improvement in the situational O playcalling to protect Beck a bit until he settles in.

Good point. That SO would have happened if that turd nugget was still running the FO (or letting Danny pull his strings).

Re: John Beck Era Begins

Actually if Beck is marginally better, I'm thinking it would have a big impact overall.

Re: John Beck Era Begins

I wonder how much Becks mobility and the injuries along the Oline figured in this decision?

And... JC is out as the starter (due to injury).

Spooky.
