Well, most projected him to be a fit for a WCO. He ran it in high school and at Colorado before transferring to Hawaii

Re: Colt Brennan profile

The problem with Brennan is that no one knows why the NFL scouts graded him down despite the college production. Until the reason becomes evident, I can't tell you what this guy is going to be.

If I was grading strictly off statistical profile, I'd say he's a historically great player. But the scouts had the same stats I do, and no team thought he was worthy of a 5th round pick. Obviously, theres critical stuff he can't do well, and we simply aren't privy to it.

Yeah, he's a toothpick. If he gets plowed by Umenyora, he's doneski. He's got a woman's frame.

Re: Colt Brennan profile

Is Brennan actually likely to end up on IR? Because I've heard several people say that.

Re: Colt Brennan profile

He's probably more likely to be practice squad.

Re: Colt Brennan profile

I don't think he will push JC in the near term but what I don't want happening is a situation where we have a mediocre season and ppl start questioning JC's effectiveness (maybe even unwarrantedly). This could lead to writers & fans would start jumping off of JC's bandwagon & onto Brennans. It could be a grass is greener on the other side type of thought process but anything that leads to JC looking over his shoulder could be disastrous for this team with so much promise.

Well right now I'm not on JC's band wagon and feel he needs to step it up this year or we might need to look to another QB. I'm not saying that is Brennan but we saw how the O improved when we went with our back up. I'm just not sold on JC but would love for him to prove me wrong and I'm not ready so start bashing him yet.

He completed over 70% of his passes.

H emay be a product of the "system," but the system isn't gonn ahelp you puyt up those kind of numbers while you are getting a pass rush on the D-1 level! Period.

If it were that serious, then any ole bum off the streets can do that in Hawaii's offense. For a #3 developmental prospect in a WCO, he fits the bill(and then some). Accuracy is important in the WCO, and he has it.

Im not mad at the pick. If we wouldn't have picked him up, some other WC team would have. I wish we could kept Carson Palmer's brother and then we could used the pick on someone else, but regardless, I still like the pick up.

Re: Colt Brennan profile

I think Brennan is a decent pick, I'm surprised he didn't get drafted higher. I think he'll probably start out as a 3rd string and may get bumped up to 2nd String if TC decides to hang it up in a couple years.

...And he's definitely easy on the eyes.. He'll have plenty of female fans!

Really? I forget, do we have a right of first refusal if someone tries to sign one of our guys off of the practice squad?

No we don't. I'm pretty sure that anyone can sign anybody off of any teams practice squad at any time. Any questions?

Another product of the system put up the NCAA Career Passing Yard record, Timmy Chang. He's in the CFL. While the WAC is D1, it is definitely sub-par with the major conferences.

I don't like him and don't think he'll be successful, but as a 6th round project I don't hate the pick.

Re: Colt Brennan profile

Colt Brennan might do well in the WCO, but it's going to take some time. While he was in a D-1 school, when he faced tough competition (Georgia in the Sugar Bowl), he was picked apart. Let's see how he does on the big stage.
