John Beck Finds Inspiration In 'The Natural,' Because Of Course He Does

The John Beck Offseason Interview MVP tour appears to have reached its final stop. The Redskins' possible starting quarterback sat in with "The Sports Junkies" on 106.7 The Fan and continued to talk like the salesman he is. A transcript can be found here, but this was my favorite part.

"At the beginning of ‘The Natural,' his dad says, ‘Roy, You've got a talent. You've got to work on that talent.' I can remember [watching it with his dad] and my dad pausing it there and turning to me - I actually did this to my 4-year-old, I bought the Blu Ray the other day. Ultimately everybody is talented. What are going to be the things that separate me? How can I be a leader? How can I raise my skills? What separates me and what ultimately helps me to succeed will be those things."

You can just see Mike Shanahan smiling in the background, proud of his pupil.

As for actual news, Beck confirmed he will be given a chance to be the team's starting quarterback, though we knew that already. Otherwise? It's time for football to actually begin.
