I'd love to see Beck do well. He brings the most NFL tools and measurables for a
BYU QB since Steve Young (not including Heaps). He really is smart to step up
and fill the void during the lockout. He may not end up being the man in DC that
he wants to be but who can fault him for stepping up and stating that he wants
Good to see Beck isn't afraid of stepping on some toes to get what he thinks he
Can't wait to read the comments from ute fans still hurting inside from John
ripping their guts out on his final pass in RES.No one can hold a
grudge like little brother.
I dont think teammates will respect a guy who hasn't taken a meaninful snap in 3
years, is 29, saying he is the starter, and who hasn't led a winning team ever
in thee NFL.In the NFL they respect those who earn respect. He's
earned it by...?
Hedgehog,Will John Beck cry when he doesn't get the job ha
hahahahaUteology,Beck didn't play in the Pac so he is
unworthy ha haPapa Smurf Ute,Jan said on the radio that
Beck won't ever start. That must be written scripture out of Jans mouth
hahahahaThere you go... I beat you to the punch:)
Maybe Washington could trade for Alex Smith:) ha
Which of us hasn't lobbied for a promotion? Good to see Beck step up and do the
same in his profession. Personally, I'd not want a QB on my team that was
satisfied with 2nd or 3rd string...
It looks like the Cougars brought their own sick sense of Ute reality to the
article. No Utes had to say anything. Stop looking to be offended. Cougars write
as many idiotic posts as Utes. I don't think any Utes really care. We are
wishing Alex Smith would be more vocal. I know that Beck could do
well but has been in the wrong system the same as Alex Smith. There are many
good qb's that didn't get the chance to show how good they can be and most of
them turn out to be seen as "busts" because there is no blocking or
other players to back them.
I'm sure he could have lobbied for a starting positon without wishing for Dmac
to fail. Just felt odd reading that part of the article. If you're good enough,
the job should be yours, or at least be allowed to compete for it.And yet there are more comments from the Harold Camping love posse known as
CHris B, Hedge, Uteology and Papa Smurf. Keep those predictions of gloom and
doom coming. The last one on Saturday worked out well.
Ldsfan, I choose to think of it as our heading them off at the pass.
C.B.I don't think readers will respect a guy who hasnt made a meaningful
comment in at least three years, is 49 and still living in his mothers basement,
and says he knows football but thinks a draw trap is the flap on a pair of long
johns...Respect is earned by football accumen, not the number of
posts slipped onto the cougar board per hour...
LDSFAN, not true Chris B is a Ute fan, and made a comment before you.
Chris B: you should probably check out Steve Young's early pro-football career.
Less than stellar, but he persisted like Beck is.
Bitterman: :) hahahahahahah! Thanks for the gut buster!
I have long thought Beck to be the better NFL prospect in comparison to Max
Hall. Although Hall is the all time wins guy, that can be misleading. Beck
didn't win until late in his BYU career, but he was involved in the bad Crowton
years and the rebuilding Bronco stage. I like the take Ldsfan had.
I also submit that many QB's get labeled busts unfairly. Sometimes a QB fails on
their own merits and others by the deficiencies of their teams.Alex
Smith and Beck have not had good situations yet. Alex has had a greater chance
to succeed as a starter for 4 years on and off. However, Alex has had 7
offensive coordinators, and that is downright offensive.
It is do or die time for Beck and he knows it. He is seizing the moment. Any
practice the team can get will help in a lock out year.Beck needs to
learn to throw the ball away instead of trying to force it in. Hall has the same
problem. Cut down on the TOs and you will probably start. The Skin's did not draft a QB this year and that sent a clear message. Unless
they trade for one Beck is considered the starter by management mainly by
default. He is going to have to earn it on the field. He should know
the playbook by now and he should know most of the NFL defenses. If the Skins
get enough practice the might do okay this year.
For Chris B. @ 2:06....Hey Chris, what did John Beck do to deserve
respect?Well, for starters, he beat your team....
Seems reading the article still isn't a prerequisite for posting:C.B.: "I dont think teammates will respect a guy who hasn't taken a
meaninful snap in 3 years, is 29, saying he is the starter, and who hasn't led a
winning team ever in thee NFL."-------------Let's
see..."Beck is drawing attention. His quotes are bold and so
are his actions: Calling Redskins draft picks, giving them playbooks, organizing
player-only practices, telling the media and Redskins fans he can't worry about
the feelings of other QBs, that he's the guy. It's his turn."He's grabbed the keys and jumped into the driver's seat. He's Beck the
Usurper sort of."I contacted everybody on offense," Beck
told me after Tuesday's practice, which he helped organize without
management."41 players showed up. Seems like respect.
Love the attitude. Hope it translates to success on the field for him.
John Beck will end up with more career TD passes than Alex Smith.Mark it down.
I'm much more impressed by Eli Herring.
Good Luck to Beck, except for when it comes to the Cowboys!
Some quarterbacks just go out on the field and show the coaches that they are
the best talent to win the team games. Some quarterbacks lobby and attempt
persuasion to get the coaches to give them playing time.My
observation is that since the first scenerio didn't play out for Beck, he's
trying the second option, which is to post "Beck For Quarterback"
signs in the stadium parking lot and on the coaches front lawn.
Yup, Jan said that his ex buddy Beck wont ever start. You beat me to it. Thanks
for making that comment for me. If Beck gets the starting job, good for him.
Hopefully he does well. Steve Young is my favorite player. He was an ex Y
player. The only player I will never cheer for is Collie. Other than that, once
they are out of Provostan, hopefully they have long and good careers. Except for
the DB Collie.
I have the feeling that Beck is going to start in Washington. Given a decent
O-line and running game Beck can be a good NFL QB. He has a strong arm and came
from a great passing offensive at the Y. He has also been in the fire at Miami
and I'm sure learned alot.
Papa,I will gladly cheer for all ute players also. Please let me know when
one plays. Sincerely,Austin Collie
@BittermanAwesome post - I nominate that for post of the year!!!
Jan Jorgenson does not think Beck will start in the NFL?The same Jan
Jorgenson All- Conference 3 times and never made an NFL roster himself? that Jan Jorgenson?Really.......I've watche them
all, McMahon, Detmer, Wilson, Nielson, Sark, Beck and Hall, looks like he found
"IT".Good Luck John
@PapaSmurfDo you know what is is like to catch touchdown passes on
National TV from Hall of Famer Peyton Manning, how it feels to play in a Super
Bowl, oh, and last but not least, how to recognize "Magic" when it
Happens! Some people do.....Smurfs can only dream.
