I’ve received a few e-mails asking me why I keep bringing up the QB spot in this draft, and we thought you liked John Beck, and we have 4,756 positions to fill besides the QB position, etc. And a few that say that Beck sucks and that Joe Flacco rules.
But I like John Beck. I like him a lot. I am a John Beck fan. I think he has a real future and getting him a massive wall of protection in Jake Long will do wonders for The Mormon. In fact, I was the very first Dolphins blogger to come out and support the pick and tell the masses to chill the fuck out when we drafted him last year after passing on Brady Quinn. Nothing has changed for me since then. And I agree that we have more pressing needs to fill. However, I’m just going with what the reports have been saying and the reports have been saying that Bill Parcells likes Chad Henne and Joe Flacco. I also personally believe that Parcells wants to draft his own quarterback, even if he has warmed up to Beck. My only problems with Beck are his age and his ball delivery. I argued last season, mostly on forums and other blogs' comment boards, that in college he had a lot of balls batted at the line of scrimmage. I got blasted by others for saying so. Fuck those people with a lead pipe. Beck's quick release is phenomenal, but that delivery needs work. Others like Ron Jaworski and Omar Kelly agree. Beck's not the tallest QB in the world, and a couple of inches in his throwing motion would make a world of difference, so hopefully he's been working with Diamond David Lee on that.
However, all that said, I do like Brian Brohm. I’ve always been a fan of his. Last year I was really hoping he’d enter the draft so we could get a shot at him. I think Brohm is going to be a stellar quarterback in this league and I think that Brohm is better than Beck. But I also think he’s the only QB in this class that’s better than Beck. I think Beck is either better than or on par with every QB in this year’s class outside of Brohm, and that includes Matt Ryan, Henne, Flacco and the others. Brohm is the only QB I personally would focus on in this draft. Otherwise, I’m happy with Beck and I am a full supporter of The Mormon, his magical undies and his promise of a fine future as quarterback of the Miami Dolphins. Disagree? You think Beck sucks and we should go after a QB in this draft? Well screw you! Just kidding.* Feel free to let us know your opinion in the comments.
*No, seriously. Screw you.
