John Beck has now started seven NFL games, and played in nine. He’s still never participated in a win.
Who are some other quarterbacks with similar streaks? Well, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, Beck is now tied for the most starts without a win of any NFL quarterback since Brodie Croyle, who lost all 10 of his carer starts with the Chiefs. (He’s currently a free agent...

The inescapable storyline of this week’s game is that John Beck is returning to face the Dolphins, a team that once thought he was their quarterback of the future. Now with his third team, Beck is looking for his first win as a pro, in the city where it all began four years ago.
“That was my first year in the NFL and you don’t really know what to...
Doc Walker had some fairly critical comments about John Beck during Sunday’s Redskins Radio Network broadcast, suggesting immediately after the game that Rex Grossman would have given the team a better chance to win.
Almost a full 24 hours later, Walker appeared on ESPN 980’s morning-after Skins show, and by that point his comments had intensified.

The Miami Dolphins have undergone regime change after regime change in the last 10 years. The Dolphins have not had the consistency and continuity that teams like the Steelers and Patriots have had over that same stretch of time.. The numerous coaching/regime changes the Dolphins have made are some of the primary reasons the Dolphins [...]
Washington Redskins quarterback John Beck on Sunday faces the team that drafted him out of BYU back in 2007, made him a starter with four games left in his rookie season and then basically gave up on him the following year.
Beck said he doesn’t really have any fond memories of his time with the Miami Dolphins, with whom he spent 2008 as a backup before the team cut him the following...
As the Washington Redskins begin the second half of the season, Kyle Shanahan’s unit very much remains a work in progress, and the offensive coordinator admittedly still is experimenting with how to best tailor the system to the strengths of quarterback John Beck.
Although the offense has managed only a total of 31 points in the three games that Beck has started, Shanahan described...
Mike Shanahan isn't backing down when he says he's stakes his reputation on Washington Redskins quarterbacks Rex Grossman and John Beck.
Shanahan made that statement after the first training camp practice in July.
So far, the two have yet to justify the coach's faith. Grossman was benched after committing 11 turnovers in five starts, and Beck is 0-3 since taking over...
Once one in a long line of quarterbacks meant to fill the void, John Beck was cast aside by the Dolphins, and is looking for his first win this week against them.
John Beck may be on a short leash for his return to Miami this Sunday. Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports that Rex Grossman split first-team snaps with Beck during practice this week. That’s a strong sign that Beck could be removed from Sunday’s game if things don’t turn around. Beck is 0-3 at…
1. Is this the game it clicks for John Beck? He steadily regressed from his relief appearance against Philadelphia to the 10-sack Buffalo game, but he was better last week. Coaches believe experience will help him better find open receivers and throw on time. 2. Are the Redskins able to ...
Washington Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman, replaced by John Beck in Week 6, reportedly split first-team snaps with the struggling Beck this week, possibly creating an opening for him to return as starter.
I think you all know how this works. We make predictions, you make predictions, and the reader who comes closest to predicting the final score gets to make a guest post. Hip-hip!
Matt Terl: Dolphins, 17-10
When you find yourself thinking things like “But maybe Tashard Choice can be a difference maker!”, it’s probably best to just pick the other team.
