Re: John Beck Era Begins

Yay.

I'm just as glad as the rest of you so see what we got in Beck. All summer long it was kinda implied Beck would start and when Rex got the nod I was just as let down and confused as the rest of you. But ... there was a reason Rex got the nod and having said that I really hope Beck does not let us down.

In no way am I implying Rex is the best thing since sliced bread but what makes him a turd? No one really explained that well yesterday other then to say...."your missing the point." I wasn't. He can't run to save his life. He doesn't have a very strong arm to throw very deep. I get it. But if we are basing this off his INT's over 4 starts this year? his INT's match up with the best. Maybe Beck comes in and can score more points some how, good. But I'm more worried it's not the QB play so much as the WR not making plays.

Re: John Beck Era Begins

This will let us know if the QB we draft next year will start right away or sit for a year or two. Go Beck.

Whoever we bring in as QB for the 1st round needs to start. Neither Beck nor Grossman are franchise QB's. I think the coaching staff and fans know there is a drastic need for a better QB on this team.

Need to give it at least a couple games. Rex was a sure fire pro bowler after the Giants game. Consistency is key.

Even if you throw in Barkley and Jones I still don't see a rookie QB not named Luck that would be able to run the offense in 2012 better then Beck or Grossman (or Leinart for that matter).

Re: John Beck Era Begins

Question.....I don't follow college football all that much. So my question is what qb coming out of college in next years draft fits shannys style best? Jones, Barkley, Luck??.... Or someone else I don't know about.

Re: John Beck Era Begins

Depends on which system? KS or MS lol luck fits best but no way we get him so I'd go with someone like Barkley or Moore

Luck fits everyone's system. Jones is comparable physically to Luck. Barkley kind of scares me when I hear comparisons to Mark Sanchez.

What will make things really interesting in Skins QB-land is if Beck ends up posting better numbers than Rex but the team goes 1-4.

As always the individual cog should be evaluated. I understand why a QB should get more leash before a benching due to the complexity of the position and the time and reps needed to implement a game plan but still. If Beck is playing well while the defense suddenly stops pulling it's weight then you don't punish Beck. That would have been like the Saints benching Brees during his record setting season where they went 7-9 due to poor defense (The year before they won the Super Bowl no less).

You know, the whole experience vs. "upside" debate really is similar to Obama vs. McCain, except everyone wanted the experienced guy. Just sayin'.

Of course you dont bench a QB for bad defensive play but if Beck has better numbers but the O still struggles to score points it will be interesting to see what happens. I think now that the change has been made, unless Beck is really terrible, the Skins have to stick with him for the rest of the year.

You live in Norman, OK and you didn't mention Landry. What's wrong with Landry?

Why don't we keep this thread focused on our current starting QB. We have multiple other threads to discuss potential QBs currently playing in college

That reminds me, has anyone heard of this Kellen Moore kid? If I recall correctly he's a QB at Boise State.

I'm willing to give Beck the benefit of the doubt that was a jitters thing. He basically knocked the ball out of his right hand w/ his left hand, which looked really silly in slow mo btw lol. Let's see if/when he settles down at the helm.

...for eff sakes my friends aren't we due for a diamond in the ruff at QB?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!
