I have been critical of Beadles, but I actually disagree with this. Beadles wasn't a generally lame player. He was just inconsistent. He would be very good for stretches and then have plays where'd he'd just whiff or get blown up. His issue wasn't one of talent or ability, just consistency and mental focus. He's clearly ironed a lot of that out. Granted, some of that is Manning always having them in the right protection, but still his down field blocking and decrease in bad plays has been exceptional.
