Wishing them both the best. I can't remember the last time a former BYU and Utah QB were solid in the NFL.

I am a die hard 49er fan... believe me when I say I want to see Alex succeed just as much as the die hard Ute fan :)

Nice job Beck!

No one on ESPN radio has anything nice to say about Alex Smith or John Beck. Hopefully, both prove the naysayers incorrect. But if not, at least they got their chances.

Good luck!

Good job, John. Of course, McMahon and Steve Young from BYU did well as quarterbacks. A few others have had decent careers, too, although not at the same level. The best to both John and Alex.

Way to go John.

Now, Who was it that said to "Mark it Down"? "John Beck will never play in the NFL."

I guess that prediction did not come to pass.

I love when that guy says, "Mark it down"!

He has been proven wrong every time I have seen that written.

Go Cougars!

What is Mr. Chris B?


Wow! A BYU quarterback may start for an NFL team again? Not since Steve Young many moons ago. BYU fans have something to cheer about.......FINALLY! I'm kinda bummed out that Max Hall will be released from Arizona soon. It was too much fun watching him getting absolutely hammered and throwing picks.

Go Beck!

Last time I made a prediction it was that Austin Collie would be a total bust. I was 100% wrong on that so I took my meager football prediction skills and simple watch.

I am really happy for Beck and hope he does well. Alex Smith for that matter. How is Max Hall doing? No news is not good news. A Utah qb is playing for the Titans as well. I hope he gets a shot at being the 3rd string as Hasselback and Jake Locker have the top two spots taken.

Any other Utah or BYU quarterback playing that I missed?

Thanks for another classless comment. I knew we could count on you. In your case, Max definitely was right!

Ty Detmer played and started in the NFL more recently than Steve Young. He also won a Heisman trophy. Something no one from Utah has ever done.

Max Hall getting hammered and throwing picks: yeah that might have BEEN fun. But watching #1 overall draft pick Alex Smith get hammered and throw picks still IS fun.

As you like to say,

Alex Smith, the #1 pick, had started so many games in NFL already, and we know how it turn out, no one can deny that he is a failure.

La Grange, TN

Be nice....Our boys Alex and John are up to bat and need our support. Their Utah / BYU wars are over now. They gave us some exciting games to watch. Games that allowed us to be foolish and brain dead. Now lets enjoy what our guys are accomplishing, all of them!!

Springville, UT

Ouch, my Colts get hammered. Yay for Beck!



Ty Detmer held a clipboard his entire NFL Career. I'm talking about a legit starter, like Young, Wilson, Jimmy Mac, Scott Mitchell, Alex Smith. And by the way, the SF 49ers have the #32 ranked O-line in the NFL, the worst. Smith has had some great games in the NFL if he gets just an ounce of protection. Max Hall won't be in a NFL uniform in less than two weeks. He is awful........probably the worst QB to ever take a snap in the NFL. Cheers!
