I got an e-mail from "James F," who happens to be a BYU fan. He's seen John play much more than most of us have. So I wanted to share what he had to tell me about John. Here's what he had to say:
I expect he may be a little tight out of the gate, maybe a fumble, or a pic, (hopefully not) as he is getting his game legs. But Beck is Mr. Fourth Quarter, the blood starts to pump when the game is on the line. And he is as cool as they come under pressure...He did that so many times at BYU. You may have noticed with his smoothness, how easy he makes it look, although it is not.
He's certainly optimistic. And at 0-9, I'll take some optimism any way I can get it.
And speaking of optimism, Armando Salguero, in his latest blog entry, tells us that the meetin between Cam and Ricky Williams went well today:
Williams will not practice today. The session began this afternoon and he was watching from the player lounge. He can begin practicing no later than Monday. He is able to play starting the Nov. 26 game at Pittsburgh and the Dolphins apparently have plans to use him as early as then.
That's also some good news. No better way to get his trade value a bit higher than by actually letting the man play. We'll talk more about Ricky next week, since he can't play until the Monday nighter in Pittsburgh.
**UPDATE**: In his press conference today, Cam Cameron has declared that Ricky Williams if officially a Miami Dolphin. He will be added to the 53 man roster, which I'd assume will be done following Sunday's game. Congrats to Ricky. Hopefully he has turned the corner in his "new" life! He's a good man and I wish him the best.
Also, Ricky spoke to the media today for a little over 5 minutes. To see this press conference, head over to miamidolphins.com.
