On a side note, Steve Young has already mentored one talented late bloomer. Lets hope he can do it again.

I say Dan Persa or Nick Foles in 2012. Kellen Moore if we can nab him!!

Hopefully Beck will simply be the next Beck. Though I will admit a successful campaign from Beck would have many compare any rise by him to that of Drew Brees.

Brees was a better college QB than Beck. The best analogy if Beck does become a solid QB would be with Kurt Warner, but not so bad, since Warner was bagging groceries at one point. Beck could surprise us all, but if he is having a rough preseason and already getting a groin tweak, I am not so sure. It is early in camp though, so we have to hold final judgement til the end of preseason at the earliest.

Re: How far can Beck take us?

I'm going to be comparing Kolb and Beck this year. Both were high 2nd round picks in 2007 with limited NFL opportunities and limited success. I want to see if Kolb is really worth a 2nd round pick and a starter on defense vs. Beck's practice squad compensation.

Beck will have just as many TDs watch

Re: How far can Beck take us?

The Cards gave too much for Kolb. I think he will pan out, but isn't going to get Arizona to the promised land anytime soon. Beck is struggling at camp they say, and with him already getting injured isn't a good omen. I know it isn't serious, but still. The Shannys have put there reps on the line for saying this guy is the real deal and he has this happen. I'll tell you one thing, if Beck doesn't pan out and is a bust, Shanny is going to get it.

Honestly though, I can't think of a QB thats ever been in Becks situation thats turned around his career. And thats not a bad thing because I can't think of any 2nd or 3rd round QB's that were really given an actual shot with another team. For him to be a Brees he would have had to have a breakout year they year they drafted Henne only to have the team eventually say we're going with Henne.

He wasn't undrafted like Warner or Romo. Wasn't a big trade like Favre to the Packers. Steve Young went to the USFL.

The only reason I mention Brees is because thats the guy he seemed to be compared to a lot when he was coming out of college. (2:45 with Steve Young)

Re: How far can Beck take us?

I think it would just be great if it's Kellen Clemens...or Ben Chappell (though considerably less likely) that emerges from this as the man at QB

The combination of what the Cardinals gave up for Kolb and then the contract they gave him combined with the fact that he's started all of 7 NFL games is just straight up staggering. It remains to be seen how he'll do in Arizona, but IMO the Eagles committed a straight up robbery.

Get what? Fired?

And then who is Dan going to hire?

Mike's in a pretty good place right now. If Beck works out, he's a genius. If Beck doesn't, but he starts Rex and they do okay to well, he still looks good. If both of them fail, he's in position to draft his quarterback of the future in a much better draft class. Hell, he's in that position even if they do well.

If Dan fires Mike now, there ain't a coach outside of the organization that's going to want to come here. None of the big names like Gruden and Cowher, none of the up and comers. The only guy who could take over would be someone from within the organization...

And that guy would either be Has, or it would be Kyle. So nothing would change.

I'd say Mike feels comfortable regardless.

Lose face with who? The fans? The media? Didn't he already kind of do that with the whole McNabb fiasco?

The guy just traded a fringe Hall of Fame quarterback for the price of a Niles Paul after insinuating that he wasn't the sharpest tool in the shed, was out of shape, was lazy and was altogether miserable to work with, and then threw his support behind a third string quarterback who hasn't thrown a pass in four years as an UPGRADE at the position.

Yeah, I'd say Mike gives two dog farts about "losing face" in anyone's minds. Dude has three Super Bowl rings and is one of the winningest coaches in history, I'd say he pretty fine with his station in life.

Oh really? IF this guy talks up Beck anymore and the guy can't produce, he is going to come off as a retard, especially after the McNabb crap. I am getting coworkers who know I am a Skins fan asking WTF? Beck? It is a joke where the Detroit Lions have better depth at QB than we do. To be honest, I think Shanny is just trying to verbally make the best out of the situation. I mean what is he going to say? Beck sucks, deal with it. He might as well say the season is going to be a long one fellas, pack it in before game #1? We should have gone after Ponder with the first pick. We needed a young QB in the fold that might show some promise, instead we get a probable journeyman lifer. Thus far this experiment with Kerrigan is turning out to be a bust. It still is early, but damn, if you want an OLB draft an OLB, not a DE. Yeah it worked with Orakpo, but that is Orakpo. Snyder must have patience, but if Shanny keeps making boneheaded moves with the Qbs, Snyder just might go back to his old ways if Shanny doesn't get things going on a solid path. IF Beck does suck, you are looking at 2014 at the earliest til we are a contender. Rexy isn't our answer at QB either to be fair to Beck. Snyder has just as big if not bigger ego than Shanny. IF Shanny doesn't produce soon or at least gives the hint of producing soon, Snyder is going to say WTF, and take control again.
