    I hear rumors that the Cowboys are offering a low round pick for Miami QB John Beck.

    http://miamiherald.typepad.com/dolphins_in_depth/2008/08/addressing-toda.html

    I love Whitey but maaaaan the dude just hasn't looked good whenever I've seen him play. He's been riding pine for a long time behind both Rivers and Volek as Bolt #3.

    Anyone think he is developing into a possible NFL starter or is he just gonna stay a career backup? Should AJ try and wheel and deal to get Beck as the #3 QB?

    As always looking for some good Charger conversation.

    So we should fix our 'poor' #3 QB situation by trading for another unproven #3?

    Why would we want beck? Did anyone actually watch him? HES HORRIBLE
    All you *****ing about whitey, would give up football if you actualy watched Beck. Hes the worst QB i have ever watched
    And even though hes only in his 2nd year, hes already 27 years old, which is actually older than Whitehurst

    I wouldnt give up a 7th rounder for him

    Beck is already 27 years old, in just his second season.

    If Parcells doesn't think he's good enough to keep on the team, there's something he doesn't like about him, even being a second rounder.

    Say no.

    I agree. Whitehurst=currency, Beck=currency.
    Beck=U.S. dollar, Whitehurst=Euro...

    Beck is better then he we do not speak of. BTW I want to see that film and I know I have the jersey around here somewhere... Yes, I have a #16 jersey and remember boxing it up in 2000 when I wanted nothing to do with the team. I didn't buy it; my Dad's Uncle coached him a little at WSU and bought it for me right after the draft.

    The list of bad former Charger QB's is long indeed...you guys are gonna give me nightmares!

    I wouldn't trade for Beck, if the scouting staff finds somebody AJ likes that is flying under the radar we will use a mid-round pick in the draft most likely. That way we aren't giving up anything and are still getting a quality clipboard holder.

    Is it possible that they meant the "Two Turntables and a Microphone" Beck? :icon_shrug:

    Truer words spoken, there have not been. It would suck to someday watch a 3rd stringer QB have to play in a regular season game though.

    I'll drink to (and because of) that. :icon_party:

    As for the topic at hand, why waste the brain cells and the time of the admin staff on this? One irrelevant QB for another...pass.

    I have one! I just can't find it. I boxed it up in 2000 during the 1-15 season. God I was soooo pissed and I never wanted to see that thing again! Now that his life is more of a joke, I'd wear it. Hell, I'd wear it to a Charger game.
