Has to be absolutely excruciating for McCown and Beck. Pretty much, what they're both thinking, is "Am I going to be 3rd string or cut?" and there's nothing they can do about it but stand there. I wonder if the team leadership is quietly watching to see which one steps up and finds a way to work.

Good point, Delphinius. This staff really knows how to push buttons.

Beck had his shot at the brass ring last year. Step up and swing or walk sucka.

I feel bad for the guy hawking hotdogs for minimum wage in the stands to feed his family. Not these over priced babies!

I dont feel sorry either, I wonder if they will ge thte prtability on property tax. Anyway, I would cut McCown. Any QB worth his salt would not have been on so many teams. At least Beck has not proven to be a bust so far, just happened to be on one of the worst teams. He isn't ready, but might been in the futurem, McCown has proven to me he is worse than Henne. At least with Chad and Chad, we have some sort lymric in there. Chad Penne, and Chad Henne. You gotta love the Irony.

Until the next pre-season game, this is as good as it gets. No news is good news right now since any significant news story this time will probably involve an injury. In this case, "silence" truly is golden in my book.

Beck's yet to earn his keep in the big leagues and my intuition tells me he won't. Story of Beck's college career: looking adequate against a bunch of sorry teams from the WAC conference.

A good point Populator. Well taken.

The Golden boys of Football get a chance/time to shine in the Sun, if they do it's "Carpe Diem"...

Otherwise, it's who's crying now.

Dad's choices are going to make the fins a lot better. I predict that with the two hanging Chad's at QB that the dolphins will win twice as many games as last year. Could the Jet's be happier. They get Farve and send their loser QB to Fla where he is greeted as a savior! This is better than the Trojan Horse.
