John Beck's mullet is majestic

A few weeks back, I was in the Redskins' locker room in Ashburn when John Beck walked by, talking to one of the team's public-relations pros. He mentioned that he would not be cutting his hair until the playoffs were over. And he made it clear that his hairstyle preference was a mullet.

This story exploded onto the Internet two weeks ago, when an image of Beck's mullet first surfaced. Back then, he was a mostly forgotten No. 3 QB who was inactive every game. Now, he's the Redskins' back-up quarterback, and has been virtually assured by Mike Shanahan a chance to show what he can do in a real-live game.

Which means the majestic mullet you see in these images will likely be representing your favorite NFL franchise under center within the near future. That's a good thing.

The length of Kyle Shanahan's slacks is perhaps less good, but maybe he's going for that short-panted thing the hipsters do nowadays. Also, nice to see Donovan McNabb paying tribute to Gilbert Arenas's beard.

McNabb already growing the playoff beard for whatever team he's QBing next year.
