As I said, John Beck had a decent outing this week. Consider that last week, Cleo was 16 of 29 for 131 yards, with no TDs and no interceptions, a 66.88 rating.
This week, Beck was 9 of 22 for 109. That's a 56.82 rating. I would argue that their stats were somewhat similar. Lemon had a rushing TD, and presumably Beck *could have* had one from the goal line, if the coaches wanted to call his number.
That was what I thought was Lemon's best effort. This was Beck's first effort, so you have to figure he'll get better. I have no issues with that...
And consider this: Miami had 11 drives on Sunday. Here was the starting field position:
and own 13
So, 5 times (46% of the time), Miami started from behind its own 20. Find me a QB who is successful when that's the case. That's right, there really isn't one. Beck did a decent job with what he was given.
