With the Pete Carmichael Jr. news, I think all signs are pointing towards John Beck being very much in the team's plans for the future. When you look at Pete Carmichael's history, offensive influences, and the quarterbacks he has worked with in the past, you can easily draw a conclusion that this hiring is to benefit John Beck. Pete's offensive influences from a coaching stand point are Sean Payton's offensive system, Cam Cameron's offensive system, and Gary Crowton's offensive system from his college days as Louisiana Tech's quarterbacks coach when Gary was the offensive coordinator and the head coach from 1995-1998. The quarterback that John Beck is most often compared to? Drew Brees, who plays for Carmichael and Payton in New Orleans. Pete Carmichael has been with Drew Brees since 2002. I think part of the thought process with hiring Pete Carmichael Jr is the idea that he can bring a similar system as the one in New Orleans that has made Drew Brees so successful over the past two years to Miami. Considering that Beck and Brees are very similar, the coaching staff and management possibly think that this system will allow John Beck to take off. I mentioned that Pete coached with Gary Crowton at Louisiana Tech. The coach at BYU that recruited John Beck to BYU was Gary Crowton. John spent his first two seasons at BYU playing in Gary's offense. Then you take into account the Cam Cameron influence. Cam coached with Pete in San Diego and wanted him in Miami as the OC. I think if Pete had accepted the job, he would have been completely on board with the idea that John Beck is the future of the team at the quarterback position. I really believe that when you take everything into account, all the signs are pointing towards John Beck being this team's starting quarterback now and in the near future. I think Pete Carmichael Jr is being hired not only because Tony Sparano is familiar with him, but also because he can build a system around John Beck. I think we are going to see a multiple offensive system in Miami that has a lot of influences from three different systems, and I think John Beck is going to be the focal point of that system much like Drew Brees is in New Orleans.
