what does one NFL player have to do with another?
Proven? he has proven that he isnt strong enough. Im not saying im not ok with keeping him as a b/u. I would not toot his horn like we got two starter level C's and he isnt replacable. Depth in our OLine is a nice luxary and I am not against it but if we can fill a need in our starting line up by trading him, I am more in favor of that.
Why does Grove need competition to play good football? Also if Satele was legimate competition we would of not signed Grove for the money that we did.
"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that justifies it."
I agree, they could let him compete for guard opposite Smiley. even if he doesn't start, you can keep him for depth. chances are, he'll play at some point during the season. if he builds some strength, maybe he can help.
however, if it's true that he is good just not not a proper fit and never will be, then it's best to trade him for what you can get.
everyone saw him play hurt along side backups so I don't think he would be written off so easily. someone would want him and I think they could get better than 5th round pick.
Bill Belichick on "putting the tape on"
On top of that, even if he knows the offense, has he suddenly become capable of holding on to the football when not trying to throw it? Better yet, can he now receive the snap 60 times without dropping it twice? If he can now do those 2 things, can he actually execute a throw without it going straight up in the air, end over end, and fall right into the lap of a Bills linebacker for a TD? Hell I know the offense pretty well, but I sure as hell couldnt execute it in the league. Neither can John Beck last time I checked.
Finally, removing Beck in no way upsets our QB situation at all. We have Pennington starting and Henne to back him up. Behind Henne we have an emergency QB(Ronnie maybe, hopefully Pat White soon) and should Pennington go down for the year we sign a vet to back him up. Thats the situation whether Beck is on the roster or not. And dont say it isnt because Beck isnt active for games.
The one thing I will agree with you on is we do indeed have a good QB situation.
Come on guys, are we seriously doing this again? This is not a Beck thread. Lets not make it one.
