Dolphins QB Carousel: Time for John Beck in Miami

Dolphins QB Carousel: Time for John Beck in Miami's safe to say that the 2007 NFL season has been a grave disappointment for Miami Dolphins fans.

The trouble started with the team's controversial selection of Ted Ginn Jr. over Brady Quinn in the 2007 Draft. And it's been all downhill since then.

In the wake of the Fins' 9th loss—by a field goal to the Buffalo Bills—the season is all but finished. It was all but finished in Week Seven, in fact.

My only question:

Why does head coach Cam Cameron continue to trout out Cleo Lemon under center?

Lemon obviously isn't a long-term answer in Miami. As I see it, it's time to give John Beck a look.

The Dolphins chose the BYU product in the second round of the '07 Draft. With seven games left on the schedule, they might as well see what he can do.

Letting Beck play will at least confer a little meaning on an otherwise lost season, by acclimating the youngster to the Sunday limelight under Trent Green's tutelage.

Fans in South Beach has been craving an elite signal caller since Dan Marino's retirement—seven years ago. Here's hoping Cameron and GM Randy Mueller decide to start taking steps in that direction.
