I would use our 3rd and 4th options @ QB before I'd default to Brunnell, the guy is completely done in the NFL imo.
My honest opinion?
IF JC goes down with a "season" ending injury I just pray to God that Brunnel does not go down in the same game. I still have nightmares about that game against (was it the Giants?) Where Rypien, Humphries, some other guy all got knocked out with knee injuries, and we had to bring in an emergency QB :/
Its sad. The man had great success with a new expansion team, which is tough. He comes to the skins, and in 2005 we had a pretty darn good offense in which he was a big part of in the first half of the season. And although I don't think he played great last year, the play calling as well as the team as a whole weren't doing well at all.
He is an experienced veteran who helped to lead our team into the playoffs in '05. He knows when to get rid of the ball, and before his injury he had a great deep-ball... despite what many of you say. Just ask Moss.
Not many teams in the league are blessed w/ a backup that has proven that he can get it done on the field. Let the man heal up, and admit the raw fact that nobody else in our QB depth chart are as good as Brunell... and that may nd up including JC.
Brunell and a losing season
I honestly would rather see collins or bramlet. Lets face it. We won't win games w/ brunell playing the way our defense played last year.
Brunell can thank Joe Gibbs for that career season in 05. His play calling wasn't too shabby. Silent, but deadly. Short PA fakes.. TE's sneaking on delay routes kept every team off balanced.
With a seasoned proven O-cood such as Al Saunders in today's era of football, we can see how badly Brunell ACTUALLY is. Without the pizzazz his lack of skills were noticed by all.
A lot of people are saying how JG lost it. Though, honestly i'd say he's the reason why we got the playoffs in only his second year. Sure, his run offense isn't as good as Saundies but he made best of what he had to work with.
The only times I remember seeing Brunell throw decent passes is when the game was ON THE LINE! Or he had to play 2 min. offense. You can recall with the denver game 05, Cowboys game 05, jags game 06, etc etc.
Now on the subject of WHY collins or WHY bramlet, because they won't throw dump offs and leave it up to the defense. The end. Besides, people are hating on Collins when they BASICALLY HAVEN"T EVER SEEN HIM PLAY!

if he does get hurt...im definitely blaming you
also, if hee does get injured, put randle el at QB
I love how some folks will mix the 2005 and 2006 seasons together so they can shed the worst possible light on MB.
He is an above average backup. We should be thankful that he is there.
We have the same QB situation as last year. JC starting doesn't improve that. We are very weak at QB and won't be successful until that is resolved. Whether that is JC getting MUCH better in a hurry or a new guy next year.
I heart the offseason.
"People keep saying when the NFL gets the book on RG3 he's done. The problem is they're stuck on Chapter 1 and Robert and Kyle are already writing their third book"
wrong. even though JC doesnt have all the smarts and isn't a complete QB yet, he throws a wonderful deep ball and can stretch the field. because he can throw a good deep ball (unlike brunell), the defense at least has to respect that somewhat and can't load 8 into the box to stop the run or else they risk one on one coverage on guys going deep. JC's ability to stretch the field, which is something Brunell really couldnt do anymore last year or even the past few years, is enough to improve our offense. JC is a much bigger threat at QB than brunell was, although brunell may be better at this point at managing a game and being a "super smart" player.Originally Posted by Fat Stupid Loser
God forbid JC goes down, because all my hopes and dreams are on his shoulders. But, if that happens, I'd much rather see Palmer or Collins go in than Brunell. Brunell just can't get the job done any way you slice it, and I don't have an ounce of trust in him. At least with Palmer you are investing in your backup of the future, and he also has a ton of potential. And with Collins, at least he won't be afraid to throw the ball more than 20 yards from the line of scrimmage.
