I was looking at Josh McCown's stats over his relatively short career, and noticed that his QB rating has only once dipped below 70%, last season he was at 69.4%, which is 7% higher then Beck's were last season, and McCown's 2 min drill efficency was a decent 85% for a very bad Raiders team last season. Josh McCown with 40+ starts is the same age as John Beck with only 4 starts, McCown also played well, or at least respectably well on some really bad teams in Arizona and Oakland, and he kept his teams competitive, a situation that we could find ourselves in this season. McCown's downside is he is a fumbler (11 fumbles, 3 lost), and his efficency drops in the 4th qtr when coming from behind, and statistically, he has problems throwing out patterns with a not very good less then 50% completion rate on out passes to either side. Interestingly, McCown's two wins in Oakland, McCown was deadly accurate, passing at a 125% and 109% QB efficency ratings, both wins came against "good" teams, Oakland and Denver. http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/5967/gamelog;_ylt=Agi2pMPNRG6tlP.L8SPuPkj.uLYF Beck on the other hand, is still and unknown commodity after last seasons 4 game trial, he was outplayed statistically by Cleo Lemon, and he never showed the athletic ability that he was touted to have at BYU. McCown could turn into Gus Ferotte, or he could be Joey Harrington Jr. When he is good he is very good, when bad he fumbles a bit too much and is a better touch passer then a Qb who drives the ball down the field on deep outs.
