I just don't see that happening. Everyone saw how bad McNabb looked at times last year. He'll be a year older, just don't see why Cincy would want him. At this point in McNabb's career he simply has little value.

Really hoping the Dolphins are foolish enough to take McNabb for Chad Henne after the lockout ends, and still give up a late round pick in the deal.

The fact that the Dolphins didn't draft anyone at the QB position suggests this is a pipe dream though.

Shanahan Has a 'Game Plan' At Quarterback

In a draft full of surprises, the biggest surprise may be that the Redskins did not draft a quarterback. And now John Beck could be a candidate to be the Redskins' 2011 starter.

After the Redskins picked their last of 12 players -- nose tackle Chris Neild from West Virginia -- in the seventh round, head coach Mike Shanahan said the team has a "game plan" for the quarterback position.

"We have a lot of different directions we could go," he said. "I can't share it with you for obvious reasons. But we do have a plan."

The plan appears to include John Beck, the third quarterback for most of last season behind Donovan McNabb and Rex Grossman.

Beck, 29, was acquired by the Redskins in a trade with the Baltimore Ravens in 2010 training camp. He was signed to a contract extension just before the start of the regular season.

Beck has not taken an NFL regular season snap since 2007 when he was with the Miami Dolphins.

Asked about Beck on Saturday night after the draft, Shanahan praised the fifth-year quarterback but would not get into specifics in terms of his role.

"Let me say when John Beck came out [of the draft] I had him as the top-ranked QB that year," Shanahan said. "I didnít even think it was close. So I have a lot of confidence in John Beck. You evaluate a lot of quarterbacks in a [draft] and he was by far the No. 1 guy. So I think the world of him.

"But Iím not going to get into detail about [the team's quarterback situation]."

Of course, the Redskins could explore quarterback options in free agency once it starts. Free agency is on hold until the NFL labor situation is resolved.

In explaining the team's decisionmaking at quarterback, Shanahan said: "When you have a board, when you pick at certain times, you have to decide what youíre going to give up, the depth of your football team, how long it will take a guy to play, if he fits in your system.

"If that guy does come in, how long will he be on the bench? Do you want to go out in free agency [and get a quarterback]? Do you have somebody targeted? Do you have somebody targeted at the college level as an undrafted guy?

"Obviously we canít give our game plan away but those are the things we evaluate as part of the process."

The Redskins had opportunities to draft one of the elite quarterbacks as high as the first round.

Missouri's Blaine Gabbert, regarded as a top 10 pick, had fallen to the Redskins at No. 10 overall. Shanahan decided to trade down in the first round with the Jacksonville Jaguars at No. 16 overall. The Jaguars promptly selected Gabbert.

Shanahan opted not to pursue TCU's Andy Dalton and Nevada's Colin Kaepernick, both of whom were selected early in the second round.

In the mid-rounds, Shanahan bypassed the likes of Arkansas's Ryan Mallett, Alabama's Greg McElroy, Iowa's Ricky Stanzi, North Carolina's T.J. Yates and Virginia Tech's Tyrod Taylor.
I have no idea why Shanahan is so high on John Beck. Average arm, average mobility, can't make the players around him better...I really don't care what the guy did in college cause that was like 5 years ago.

I doubt they're that foolish. Miami isn't giving up on Henne yet. And I don't see anyone giving away a draft pick for a guy who might get cut.

I read online on the espn wegbsite that Alex Smith got a playbook from the 49ers. Here is the link San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh met with Alex Smith on Friday, says he 'is a 49er' - ESPN If that is true then most likely he will resign with them. What do you think of Brady Quinn? Better than Grossman, & Beck. In my Madden league he lights it up but that is just a game.....

Playoffs. This team has a hell of a lot of talent, the OL will have another year of experience. The team is loaded and Harbaugh will lead them to the playoffs.

Re: Redskins 2011 Starting Quarterback: John Beck?

San Francisco has an elite RB(but the injury bug does like him), an elite TE, a playmaking WR, and a top tier run defense. The just need a QB and better pass D, and then they'll be riding high.

7 wins in the NFC West ensures a home playoff game, so SF will most likely make the playoffs.

I don't get this way of thinking at all. It is like hoping that that someone rapes your wife so that you can then earn brownie points by being there to console her.

A fan, by definition, roots for his team to do well.

GMs have to adopt the attitude though, if there's a player that will be a game-breaker to be obtained and the current roster isn't worth preserving. However, rather than ask the coach to tank, they blow up the team so that it can't win that many games. The Caps, while in a different sport, did adopt this strategy.

As you probably know by my statements, I want nothing but young guys out there next year. That may mean only winning a few games next year but I'm ok with that. This is a rebuilding job, and by the way the draft went Shanahan and co. realize that too.
