BeckMania Continues: John Clayton Says Charlie Whitehurst Needs To Be More Like John Beck

There's a large school of thought that suggests that the pushback some have made against the recent John Beck mania is overdone because there really isn't as much love for Beck among fans and the Washington Redskins as people think. To that school of thought, I say: how else can you explain a line like this coming from one of the most well-connected professional football writers in the country?

[ESPN's John] Clayton referenced Redskins quarterback John Beck, whose situation in Washington has some similarities to that of [Seahawks quarterback Charlie] Whitehurst. Beck, 29, has all of four NFL starts under his belt, but with the Redskins expected to part ways with veteran Donovan McNabb, Beck is vying to be Washington's starter next season.

Not only is Beck setting up workouts with teammates, he's exuding confidence.

Yes, you read that correctly. ESPN's John Clayton believes an NFL quarterback needs to be more like John Beck, who has not played a down since 2007, because of the media blitz Beck went through this month. And you wonder why people are tired of anointing John Beck.
