The education of John Beck begins
OK, just kidding.
Actually I was at Dolphins camp today and it was interesting to see the exchange between Trent Green and John Beck today as they came off the field.
Green, grinning ear-to-ear, asked Beck about a throw that resulted in an interception during the team period of the practice.
"You thought that was a cover two?" Green said with his knowing smile.
"That's what I thought it was," Beck said shaking his head.
Green put his arm around Beck as they went past me and into the locker room, still talking about the play that fooled the rookie.
"His eyes see things differently than mine because he has those veteran eyes," Beck said later. "He has a lot more experience."
The good news is Green is apparently mentoring Beck despite past concerns that wouldn't be happening. It's also good that that Beck is smart enough to shut up and listen.
Meanwhile, it is clear Beck has a very good arm. It's not so much about velocity with him, it's more about his quickness of release and his accuracy. His accuracy is about as good as I've seen around Dolphins camp in a loooong time.
