If you missed out on your waiver wire this week in getting Tim Tebow, Carson Palmer, Matt Cassel or Colt McCoy, go ahead and grab John Beck. With Ryan Fitzpatrick, Tom Brady, Eli Manning and Michael Vick leading the charge of quarterbacks that are on byes this week, Beck has a pretty favorable match up to help ease your pain.

Coach Mike Shanahan enters the second year of his building project with a foundation in place but some significant lingering questions. Overshadowing the team’s two-win improvement in 2010 is the disastrous trade for quarterback Donovan McNabb.
