y dadI know Alex Smith beat the Y atleast twice, what does beating
the U have anything to do with Beck playing in Texas. The Jordan Wynn thing is
pretty funny, can't stop laughing. Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha-WOW
I like Beck and all, but at some point, he's going to have to step up and
perform. It's pretty amazing that he's gotten this many chances, so
good for him. But he's gotta make something happen.
utahsportfanaticThe two terms are not mutually incompatable. I
think each year you get a chance to try to be better than you ever have been,
that's a new start.And journyman backup isn't a derisive
term. Worked for Ty. It'll be fun to see how it all works out for Kellen
I know BYU fans will probably kill me for this question, but I am just curious.
At what point do you stop getting a "new start" and become a journeyman
He committed the unpardonable sin of beating Utah. At Utah.Here's hoping Riley Nelson can do the same. And then come back as a
surgeon, maybe orthopedic. Who knows, he could end up working on Jordan Wynn.
John Beck is a class act; on and off the field. His career has been a case of
wrong place, wrong time. Through it all he has been nothing but positive and
optimistic. Great role model for young folks. When his career in the NFL is
over, he will have a positive impact on many, many people because of his
character and class. All the boo birds on this site would give their right arm
for his NFL career. John has been frugal with his NFL money and will be in a
great position financially to make the transition into the business world. Good
luck John and keep representing the Cougars well!
If it was raining soup, John Beck would be the only one out there with a
fork.Alex Smith had similar problems - except it was all with the
same team. He hit the jackpot finally and I expect John will as well. You can
only have so much bad luck before the law of averages comes screaming back.
Good job and good luck.

Smith - Beck just needs to find the right coach and system."I
agree. As a Dolphins fan, I was pleased that they selected Beck & not Brady
Quinn. Beck playing his rookie season was not helpful. Then, playing for
Parcells/Henning/Sparano put his career in a downward spiral.
And Alex Smith has proved that he is worth 48 million dollars. I don't
Good point, Old Timer. My guess is that the Deseret News probably set something
up with the Texans to sign Beck just so they could write an article about him.
Enough, enough D-News, the man just isn't good enough to cut it and will
I have a lot of admiration for John Beck. He was terrific to watch at BYU and
has been an excellent example of persistence, attitude, and class in his NFL
career. Regardless of whether or not he becomes a regular starter or wins a
super bowl he's a winner in my book. There are a lot of college
quarterbacks that would love to have had the career he has had. There are a lot
of us fans out there that will be John Beck fans for life regardless of
John's critics, because of the type of man he is both on and off the field.
Maybe he's not a starter or a superstar but he's worked hard enough
and has the inherent talent to stay in the NFL. People can bad mouth him, but
he's there, doing what so many people only dream of. If he finishes the
year he's eligible for an NFL retirement. Not a bad situation at all. Good
for him and continued success.
like Alex Smith - Beck just needs to find the right coach and system.
Being in the NFL and on a team roster other than the practice squad, is a
tremendous accomplishment.Just ask Brian Johnson.John
Beck is the personification of grit and determination.Go Beck! Go
The headline that keeps repeating itself. At least he is still in the league.
