Beck-tackular

Right out of the bat I must say this a hypothetical...and when I say hypothetical I mean 99 % unlikely to happen. I am noit one of those typical blinded Skins fans who, no matter what think everything will work out and we are Superbowl bound. But I'm bored at work and eager for the season to start so I thought I would present this "What if?":
    So everyone is apparently on board for the "Suck for Luck" campaign. With Beck, it is understandable to have low expectations and a hope to get Andrew Luck, who apparently plays like like Tom Brady and Peyton Manning's love child. However, I think its worth asking the question, for kicks if nothing else, what happens if Beck ain't half bad?? By not bad I mean maybe top 10 to 15 QB statistically. Lets say he throws for 2,200 yards and throws 20 or so TD's and 12-15 INT. Additionally, he shows great leadership (Not exactly a stretch, I think he has all the intangibles but its the tangibles that worry me) and game management. Granted he will screw up and look awful at times, but lets say his season is more impressive than not, and he shows great potential and promise for the future. So say around late December Beck has put together a solid season that has far exceeded expectations, and the Skins are in the hunt for the wild card, or, dare I say, have a playoff spot locked up, whatis the next move at QB.  If beck were to have a playoff caliber season, it would take us out of the running for Luck, barring a trade of Shanny's arm and leg... plus 2 draft picks. However, there are other QB's who could be viable options, such as Barkley from USC or SDSU's Ryan Lindley. So, whats to be done about next year if Beck has the potential to be a good starting quarterback? Do we go for Luck , try for another rookie QB, sign an established QB, or continue with Beck. As I said, I very highly doubt this will be a dilemmathe front office must face, but is interesting to think aboutnonetheless. Hey, if all else fails, we can always bring in Ben Chappell again... Shanny said he has some great college film.
