John Beck’s updated NFL timeline

– 2007 – In John Beck’s rookie season, he was the #3 behind Trent Green and Cleo Lemon.  After Green got hurt and Lemon was ineffective, Beck appeared in five games on one of the worst teams in recent NFL history, the 1-15 Dolphins.  Bad situation, but even still, it didn’t go well.  He hasn’t played a single NFL snap since 2007, until last Sunday.

– 2008 – After Beck’s rookie season, the Dolphins acquired THREE QB’s. They signed both Chad Pennington and Luke McCown, and drafted Chad Henne.  Pennington won the starting job, Henne became the 2. McCown injured his finger chopping firewood and was traded to Carolina.  Seriously.  That actually happened.  Beck survived one more season.

– 2009 – During the offseason after his 2nd season, still buried as the 3, the Dolphins drafted Pat White, and cut Beck two days later.

– 2009 – Beck then signed with the Ravens, and he was again the 3 behind Joe Flacco and Troy Smith.

– 2010 – Last offseason the Redskins traded some guy named Doug Dutch for Beck.  He was the 3… again… behind Donovan McNabb and Rex Grossman.

– 2011 – Considered the favorite by many to win the starting QB job, Beck ultimately lost out to… you know… Rex Grossman.

– Week 6, 2011 – Rex Grossman throws 4 picks to the Eagles, gets benched, Beck comes in and actually provides a spark, but the Skins lose.

– Today – Beck is named the starting QB against Carolina this week.  Most people agree with the move, myself included, because really, how much worse can it get?  Well… the Panthers, a team that has won 3 of its past 22 games going back to the start of the 2010 season, is favored by Vegas to beat the Skins this Sunday.  Then again, what does Vegas know?  I mean… it’s not like they know what they’re doing out there… Right?

    Just saw this on Wikipedia:

    John Beck was a 22 year old true freshmen in college.

    That means, as a true freshmen, he was probably older than half the seniors on the team. WTF?

    1. AtlEagle says:

      Did he go on his mission for 4 years? I am guessing that BYU = mormon. I thought the typical mission was 2 years, so he should have been a 20 year old true freshman, or barely 21.

    Vegas opened the line last week Philly +1….it appears they don’t know much. Whole country bet Philly since lined moved a full 4 points.

    1. I don’t know about that one, Kev. The opening lines I saw had Philly favored.

    2. Anyway, just poking a little fun at your QBs, because it’s… easy.
