Omar Kelly reports on the Fins' offense during today's OTAs. As usual, it's a great roundup from Omar. Except that he uses the CAPS key a bit too much to express emphasis, where italics would do just fine. Otherwise, he's just shouting random words at us. And that just makes him look like a crazy person. Anyway, he says Josh McCown and John Beck are both looking good:
Both Josh McCown, who opened up Wednesday's practice as the starter, and John Beck looked SHARP during Wednesday's OTA session. A number of touchdowns and big play passes were thrown during team drills, and 7-on-7. Basically, the offense was humming, and to be honest I was very impressed with the passing game. Now, this doesn't mean the Dolphins are going to have an amazing offense come training camp, or the regular season. But it does indicate that there MIGHT be a quarterback in this batch, and the Dolphins MIGHT score more than 26 touchdowns in this upcoming season. If you forced me to pick the quarterback who looked the best I'd begrudgingly say it was Beck because of how effective he looked thrown slants, and his accuracy when he was rolling out of the pocket. But McCown looked pretty good too. Beck hit David Kircus, a star of Wednesday's practice, in full stride during one drill, beating Scorpio Babers for what would have been a touchdown. As I said, it was hard to determine which QB looked the best because McCown usually responded to something Beck did. A couple of plays after that nice pass to Kircus, McCown bulleted a intermediate pass along the sidelines to Ted Ginn Jr., who beat Will Allen on the skinny post. He then hit Kircus with a touchdown catch in the redzone.
Sounds good to me. But the real question is what does Jesus think of the QB competition? Who's been praying harder to win the job? So I asked Jesus. I said, "Jesus, I just read that both Josh McCown and John Beck looked sharp at today's OTA's. But between you and me, who's got the inside track for the starting job?" He replied, "A who did what now?" and then got into a cab. Come to think of it, it probably wasn't Jesus at all. Ah well.
