Lemons' Last Start?

John Beck - APThere is a rumor going around that this weekend will be the last game for Cleo Lemon as a starter.  According to a report by Jason “I’m glad I don’t cover the Miami Dolphins” Cole, sources from high up in the Dolphins management have told him that rookie John Beck will start the game vs. Buffalo and that the last 8 games will be an opportunity to see if Beck can be a franchise QB or if the position will need to be addressed in the draft next year…presumably referring to Louiville QB Brian Brohm.

If this turns out to be true, nary a fan will likely argue against it.  The Dolphins need something…anything to give their fans some hope for the future.  If Beck shows that he has the promise to be a solid QB in this league, regardless of his final win loss record, then that will likely be enough to keep Cameron and Mueller off the season ending hot seat. 

This is the smartest thing that the Dolphins can do.  Beck is ready and at the age of 27 his time frame for being a productive leader is a smaller window than say…Brady Quinn.

All eyes may be on London this weekend, but if your a Dolphins fan, your eyes may be wandering to south Florida and silently circling that November 11th date on your schedule, praying that is the debut of one John Beck.

    It better be his last start.  Let’s face it, we are picking top 3 guaranteed.  We NEED to know if Beck can be our guy or not.

    I don’t give a danm about the performance of Lemon, he could have 7td’s, 500 yd, with 3 rushing td’s with it. We need Beck in the field after the bye!! He will have more than enought time to get the playbook in his system.

    I agree, this is a very good move and better be true.

     By the way George, Larry Csonka laughed about your question regarding the SI cover.  Although his response was somewhat short, his answer is very intersting.
