Got a ton of e-mails (aside from all the comments) about my MVN John Beck article from Tuesday. Got a few that disagreed and, honestly to my surprise, a good amount of readers that agreed with me.
But I would like to address one thing. The column I wrote is based on collective studies I've done on my own as well as a lot of info taken from Mr. David Lewin of FootballOutsiders fame. And while football analytics isn't as static as, say, baseball sabrmetrics ... the numbers usually are dead on and pretty accurate. However, that said, I am not saying that if Beck doesn't start soon or any time this season that he'll NEVER make it as an NFL QB. What I am saying is that the odds are against him if he doesn't start soon. He is certainly talented enough to beat those odds and no one is a bigger fan of the guy than I am. Whatever he does or doesn't do this season, I'm rooting for him to succeed. It's just that I think his chances are much better if he starts ASAP. But if he doesn't, well, I hope he manages to beat the odds. And he's talented enough and has enough moxie in him to do that very thing.
(Although I'm convinced that we'll at least see him sometime in November or December when the last of our playoff chances has gone the way of the Dodo bird)
That is all. Now back to your regularly scheduled douchebaggy sarcasm and cynicism right here ... on FinsNation.com...
