John Beck gets on Internet to research teammates

With the lockout keeping teams apart for weeks at a time, Redskins QB John Beck, who thinks he should be the starter in Washington, is doing whatever he can to learn about his newest teammates.

So, he’s taken to the Internet to find out some extra info.

Take a guy like Redskins rookie WR Aldrick Robinson (taken in the sixth round out of SMU). Beck doesn’t know anything about him, and since he is barred from the team facilities, he can’t watch film on him.

So, Beck gets creative.

“I actually watched his YouTube last night,” Beck told the Washington Post. “I hadn’t seen him yet, so I was like, ‘OK, let’s see what we’ve got.’ That’s the nice thing about YouTube. You can learn a lot.”

Beck did the same with RB Evan Royster as well, tapping his name into the YouTube search engine to see a few highlight videos.

And what Beck discovered: Learning about your new teammates is kind of cool.

“I had no idea Evan Royster was the all-time leading rusher in Penn State history,” Beck said. “I watched his YouTube and then his draft-day [highlights]. So, today I was like ‘Hey, man, congrats. That’s pretty sweet! I had no idea.’”

And while watching YouTube seems like a rather amateurish way to go about scouting players, that’s all Beck can do for now. Now, I just wonder if Rex Grossman (“No, I’M the starter!”) has the same creativity.

"I actually watched his YouTube last night"?

Sounds like Beck did not graduate from college because the proper response would have been

"I saw clips of him on YouTube last night and he was amazing/off the hook/dynamic/unstoppable".

By the way...who is John Beck?...ba da bump!
