If he starts, i have to support him. i just said hes not as awful as some ppl... and in reference to keeping him? as a backup who knows the offense hopefully that would be the extent of his role.
I want foles and thats the for me.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

We're done with Rex as a starter. There's just no way we can go into another season with him and expect to win games.

If Rex is the starter next season, I would conclude that Shanny is tanking games to get in position to draft Barkley.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

I really can't take another season of hearing about "tanking"

Make no mistake, I'm talking about Rex. Beck was a backup. He showed in 3 games why he was considered as such and returned to his regular place. Grossman was our starting QB and was the worst in the league outside of Indy.

Re: The "Inside Word" on the QB Search

The teams needs to clean house at QB. I don't hate Rex but it's time to move on completely

At some point you have to let others learn the system in my opinion.

Absolutely. The team needs reason to have hope, both from the perspective of players inside the locker room and from the fan perspective.

With Rex at QB there is just no hope to compete for a Super Bowl. The longer you keep him, the greater risk you run of having productive players want to leave the Redskins and the greater risk you run of having your team be a complete afterthought for prospective free agents.

When quality free agents hit the market, they pick their team as much as the team picks them. Good free agent players have options, and if you go into next year with Rex you give them no reason to choose the Redskins.

I think my bigger concern, and I alluded to this a few weeks ago, is that Rex is a "known commodity" for the Shanahans and as such he's an easy crutch to go to. I think whoever their QB is whether it's Flynn or Hoyer or RG3 or Tannehill, whoever it is, they have to-as they say-"ride or die" with him. It's the only way they can truly take that next step

From that perspective I can see how they would view him as a crutch, given his familiarity with the offense, etc. But in terms of trying to keep their own jobs, keeping Rex as the starter would represent the biggest possible risk for the Shanahans.

Last year they kept Rex after giving him a three-game audition in their system. Everyone, including Dan Snyder, was at least somewhat willing to give them and Rex a chance to show that he could improve in their system.

But now after this past season where Rex showed he turns the ball over just as much in this system as any other, keeping him around would mean he HAS to make the leap, or if I'm Snyder the Shanahans would be history. I mean given the knowledge we have today, how can you take the position that Rex is likely to perform well this coming season? Keeping him would be riskier to their jobs than trading up and selecting a rookie.
