Depends on who that other veteran is and how they play in camp. I just haven't seen anything to suggest that Shanahan would be eager at this point to get rid of Brenan.

I personally agree. We got the guy in the 6th round. This guy set NCAA passing records against lame competition most of his career at Hawaii and when they played the big game in the Superdome the Bulldogs crushed him. I know all this is history, but if the rest of the NFL passed on the guy, they must have known something and we just took a big gamble on the guy. Lefevour would definitely beat him out in a QB contest, and I think most of the others I previously listed also would beat Colt.
I don't know if Colt is good or not. Honestly I haven't seen enough of him. People argue he got all those records with a gimmic offense and an easy conference. I don't know. He might suck. If he does lets move on. I'm just ready for some new blood in that position. Colts been injured the whole time here, Collins is an aged vet that takes too many chances and usually throws an interception here and there, and Campbell has not shown to me that his potential is on the up swing. He seems like he's now just treading water. Stagnant. But if both Shanahan's see something they think they can work with after Gibbs, Saunders, and Zorn have all tried to further JC's developement then I'm fine with it. They are the proffessionals.

Re: Bradford/Clausen now split among Mock Drafts

Yeah Shanahan will most certainly bring in a vet QB to back up Campbell for the 1st year and i agree if he drafts a QB that Colt will be gone :-( He had an injury on both hips but those have been taken care of and he had a whole year off. Yes he had a gimmicky offense but it wasnt the fact that HE was overmatched in the bulldogs game, his WHOLE TEAM WAS. They dropped 8 into coverage and had 3 MASSIVE DLineman shreddin his OLine up like cheddar. He had no chance in that game because of Georgia's game plan. Im just sayin he possesses the kind of energy that we need from a Leader spot like QB, the kind of energy thats addictive, that would make the whole team feel young and eager to win. If he's not the answer than so be it, but AT LEAST see what he can do in this system!

Re: Bradford/Clausen now split among Mock Drafts

PHazard nailed it. I have been trying to put into words what JC lacks and why he is not a long term solution. He lacks that contagious energy/fire you want to see from a leader/QB. I would have been happier this year with Colt in there becasue he has always looked like he will hang it on the line to win and I can't see us doing any worse with him in.(I know he was injured and couldn't play, just being hypothetical) JC has one speed, mediocre. Should we get rid of him? Not this year, fix the things that are really broken first. I will throw up on myself if we draft a QB at #4, I don't see franchise QB in any of the BIG names. I will be stoked though if we land Pike/Lefevour/Kafka in the 4th round or later. I am thinking like a coke fiend for the first 2 rounds, it's all about the LINE. And If we can trade back and get more picks two should be competing for the front five.

Give Brennan a shot. He couldn't be any worse than Campbell.

Im not sure I can agree with that. To be honest our opinions on JC are based on what we know about him, while our knowledge of Brennan is based on everything we dont know about him yet.

Re: Bradford/Clausen now split among Mock Drafts

I'm not sayin Colt would come in and be a star off the bat. EVERYONE has a rough start or a rough patch. But when u see the kid play, yu cant help but get behind him cuz he gets more and more AMPED UP after every completion. It wouldnt be all balloons and champagne when he starts out, but if yu check his bio, check his story, the kid is a FIGHTER! and he would always fight to be the best. He is overflowing with confidence and trusts his arm and all his throws. JC doesnt trust ANYTHING, his line his arm, if a receiver is open or if its an optical illusion and his eyes are decieving him. Yeah, Colt hasn't been in the conversation of starting QB wit the coaches yet. But this is the SAME coaching staff that got rid of Jansen cuz they said Heyer was better, that got rid of Jeremy Bridges who started at LT all year for the cardinals, that said Antwaan Randle El was our best return man. They clearly werent suited to make ANY decisions lol

I also see that special something in Brennan's attitude and demeanor, call it a swagger. You can tell he wants to be GREAT. For these reasons alone he is worth the time and energy required bring him along.

...I think he becomes a starter in the league eventually.

Re: Bradford/Clausen now split among Mock Drafts

Brennan is not starter material. He built up his rep in college, piling up huge stats on a pass happy team against inferior opponents(much like Tebow). The only real team he played at Hawaii was Georgia in the Sugar Bowl and he got destroyed. If Shanny does indeed bring in a vet to back up JC, Brennan is toast. Too many good QBs coming out in the next few seasons for Shanny not to take one. Remember, if we didn't gamble on Colt, he would have gone undrafted. For someone who set NCAA passing records, it is strange for nobody to take a chance on him til the 6th round, and of course in was our screwed up FO that did.

I like Colt, but he isn't our new QB. Daniel was more fluid, mor relaxed, and had better stats. Only thing that hurt Chase was his size. The main thing with these College QB superstars is that they are from teams highly stacked with talent and/or face inferior competition. Tebow had a Florida roster that could maybe beat the crappier NFL teams out there. Florida was head and shoulders better than most of their competition during Tebow's reign(especially in '09, a weak year for the SEC). Colt played on a rather talented Hawaii squad, with a pass happy offense and weak competition. Sort of hard for Colt not to set NCAA records with that scenario. We need a QB that made things happen with a team that maybe was average to above average talent and was exposed to some degree of parity or enhanced competition. THat is why I am guys like Lefevour, Pike, Stull, Kafka, even Canfield. These guys had good stats and faced decent competition just about every Sat as they aren't from NCAA powerhouses.

Re: Bradford/Clausen now split among Mock Drafts

Colt was a college stud who was very much worth the 6th rounder we spent on him to see if he could adjust to the pro game, but if you're being honest with yourself, you've likely seen enough to conclude that there's not all that much there.

A new system is a new hope for guys like Brennan, but he's just holding a roster spot until someone more intriguing comes along.
