A job playing football, even in the CFL, is better than being a working stiff.
And it pays allot better!Good luck John.
Best of luck, John!
Now this IS something to cry about.
Another class act getting a well earned chance to succeed. This man is a
student of the game and prepares well when given the chance. For his size he is
one of the best qbs we've seen at BYU in many years and hopefully that
translates to the CFL. Here's wishing you the best.
I agree with the comment above that John Beck got really hosed when he was
thrown into the game far, far too early in his first year at Miami. Not
good.Not sure what happened (asn in "why") he didn't
perform solidly when he was able to start in Washington. Did he have no talent
on offense to help him? That's what happened to him with the Dolphins. Regrardless, Beck to Harline is still the best college football play
EVER!!! I was there along with my (then) 10 yr old son.Good luck,
The Ute naysayer makes it sound like the Utes have filled the NFL with QBs. Kudos to Alex Smith. I cheered for him with the 49ers and Chiefs.But how many QBs from BYU vs Utah have played in the NFL over the last
three decades, how many have won Superbowls, and how many have many MVPs and
Heisman Trophy's? I suggest U pick a different argument. Sure the CFL is
not the NFL, but both Beck and Max make some good money in the NFL and now
playing in the CFL is still better than pumping gas and living in your
mother's basement.Or even looking forward, one has to admit
that the QB pipeline for BYU is more promising than for U. But with seven QBs
on scholarship on the hill, who knows, maybe one will surprise.
Actually Brad Sorenson QB with the S.D. Chargers is a former BYU QB via SUU ...
Good Luck to J.B.
@ trueblue you really think taysom is playing in the NFL can he even throw? I
guess we won't even find that out this year with their schedule.
I never felt that John was given the time to grow as a QB at the NFL level.
Going to the CFL is better then nothing and who knows maybe he will be able to
get the growth and expereince to maybe one day come back to the NFL. Good Luck
No Y QB's in the NFL currently, but there is one pending his completion of
college play.Historically though, the school up north doesn't even
want to go there...
How many bowl games did John play in? 4 How many bowl games will the Jr's
to be get to play in at Utah? 0
Despite several down years at the QB position BYU still has multiple former QBs
making a living playing football. Congrats to John making money for doing what
chris b / 2013This article is about John Beck and has nothing to do
Good luck to Mr. Beck! The minute I saw the headlines in this
article I knew certain BYU haters will make the first posts to mock and ridicule
and true to form, they did just as I thought they would. I suppose this silly
and childish bantering back and forth about "my dad is better than your
dad" will never end with some fans. It's so sad when we can't
cheer for each others' success when we're not playing.
CBNothing to point to EVER, so you're forced to beat your chest
about lesser accomplishments.No Super Bowl MVP's; no NFL
MVP's; no Heisman Trophy winner; no college or pro Hall of Famers, so tell
us, what incredible NFL record?
redfeather,Nothing to point to currently so you're still living
in the past?Utah has a QB starting for a playoff team and has an
incredible NFL record. And if you want to compare any other
positions in the NFL, lets do that!
Live your dreams !
christyRemind us which pro-football team Utah's Sugar Bowl MVP
is playing in.BYU has 5 former QBs who have been inducted into the
College Football Hall of Fame.Call us when Utah wins its 1st
national individual award of any kind.
I wonder if it will ruin his weekend having to sign with the CFL. Good luck
I think John Beck still owes his career to Jason Beck for pushing him to be
Is there even a single QB from QB University in the NFL?
CFL is clearly the landing spot for quarterbacks for QB university these
days.Hard to see Jake Heaps going anywhere but the CFL too, if he
can make it to the CFL.Best of luck John
