Texans sign QB John Beck
So, the John Beck experiment in Washington is over and will be continued in Texas. That may have just been a collective sigh of relief I heard across the Beltway as Redskins fans are eager for the RGIII era to begin and the Beck/Grossman/McNabb/whomever era to end. Beck will join the Houston Texans and compete with T.J. Yates and rookie Case Keenum for the QB backup job to starter Matt Schaub.
Lest we forget, Beck’s stat line as starter with Redskins in 2011
Wk 7 – Panthers 33..Redskins 20/ Beck 22/37, 279 yds, 1 TD, 1 INT, 1 FUM
Wk 8 – Bills 23…..Redskins 00…../ Beck 22/33, 208 yds, 0 TD, 2 INT, 1 FUM
Wk 9 – 49ers 19…..Redskins 11…/ Beck 30/47, 254 yds. 1 TD, 1 INT, 0 FUM
