Re: Campbell or Brunell in 2006?
 
I feel funny saying this after the way I felt last year, but as long as Brunell is back to being healthy I see no reason for him not to start. We played very well early on in the season and I think he can do that for at least another season (obviously barring injury).

I would love to see Campbell get more PT, but I think he really needs to get more practice. We showed some good traits in the preseason last year but he also made some typical rookie mistakes. If he plays more this preseason (because Brunell is at the point where he probably doesn't need to take a ton of preseason snaps) then maybe he'll be ready to be our #2.

If "ready to go" means campbel is ready to play at a level at least close to Brunell last year than I say Campbel, but if not than Brunell. I want the best QB on the field...this is a playoff team now so i don't want to squander a whole season waiting on Campbell.

The Bills made a similar decision last year by replacing Bledsoe with losman on what was a contending team and it blew up in their faces.

This is not college. Experience counts in the pros. Brunell might not be what he was with the Jags, but his game savvy helped the Skins a lot this season -- and next. Campbell will be a lot better off, and better for the Redskins over the long haul, if he spent another season watching and learning.

Think of it this way. Patrick Ramsey is a much better qb today because he was on the bench learning from Brunell and Gibbs/Musgrave than when he was starting and running Steve Spurrier's concepts. Some other team will get a very fine qb if he leaves. Not sure I like that.

I voted Brunell but feel Gibbs will make the best decision of which QB has the best chances of leading us to the playoffs.

I voted Brunell, simply because we haven't seen enough of Campbell to come to a conclusion at this point.

He could possibly take over for Brunell somewhere if he starts '06 season the way he ended '05.

I'm pretty torn on this one. Brunell had a fine year for this team and helped lead them to the playoffs. However, I don't think that he'll ever be better than he was this season, so I don't really know how next year will go. I say if Brunell looks bad in the preseason and gets knocked out of the game during the first series of next season, Campbell should get the job.

The question is: do we want to make it to the Playoffs or do we want to win the SuperBowl?
I believe that the Redskins have reached the ceiling with Brunell. They have to give Campbell every opportunity to start next season, with the understanding that there will be some growing pains.

Brunell did fine, but what's the point of another year on the bench for Campbell if he is to be the QB of the future? If he is indeed ready to play, he needs playing time to get better.

Brunnel does a good job of managing the game but is incapable of taking the team to the next level. I say lets start developing the young quarterback and give him a shot.

Re: Campbell or Brunell in 2006?
 
The bottom line is that we're going to have to make the change at some point. While Brunell played admirably in 2005, he's not a long-term solution at QB.
I vote for starting Campbell at the beginning of the 2006 season.
It might be some hard medicine to take at first, but it's better to make the change early than late in the season when the playoffs might be on the line.

Re: Campbell or Brunell in 2006?
 
I wouldn't be upset with either, but if he's ready I'd like to see Campbell playing. The difference in arm strength, somewhat similar accuracy, good mobility, and a huge frame which should help him break free of some sacks.

I would LIKE to see Campbell come out of camp looking like a million bucks, and then we start him. I don't want him thrust out there without really being ready. This is just wishful thinking, but still.

I say we go with Brunell until he either:
A. Gets injured, because we all know how he plays when he's injured
B. Just generally sucks ass, or does not perform up to expectations.
The reason is, because Campbell has only learned for a year. Give him a few extra games, or another year on the bench, if Brunell can consistently play at a high level. There is no reason to put such a young quarterback out there. In case you don't know who J.P. Losman is, he was a second year quarterback for the Bills this year. They let Bledsoe go because they thought Losman would be ready to go as well. Instead, they wound up with a horrible record and Losman didn't even start the full season because he sucked so bad. I could see the same thing happening to us if we started Campbell on opening day.
