Colt Brennan vs Rookie class
 
How does our 3rd stringer compare to the rookie class comming in? Could Colt compete with JC for the starting QB position under Shannahan? Why/ Why not? As we are discussing the possibility to draft another QB in the first round, what is the possibility of us coaching up what we currently have in our stables? People who know about this draft class and can compare them to Colt please speak up, I'd like to understand what makes these guys better to run the redskins offense vs. Brennan?

I've felt all along that Colt should be given the same chance as any QB coming out of college.

The 2008 preseason was no fluke. Last year he was battling a bad hip injury all year....and we know the surgery was season ending....i always felt like Colt could have been put in the game that time Jason was benched....but Zorn didn't have the balls to stick to his decision...

I would love to see what he can do in a real game.

I think you will have your answers in late April 2010.

Mike Shanahan will have had the time to watch Colt Brennan on film by then and will have talked to Brennan and will have seen Brennan in his rehabbing mode. If after all of that, Shanahan takes a QB at #4 - - I don't care which one he takes - - or if he trades that #4 pick and uses his first pick in the draft on a QB no matter where it is, then he will have concluded that Colt Brennan is not going to be his QB here in Washington.

Personally, I think Colt Brennan is the latter-day incarnation of Babe Laufenberg. But I am willing to defer to Messr. Shanahan on this one...

He showed flashes, but he clearly couldn't hold a candle to the best QB on the roster last year, Todd Collins.

Colt was on IR last year, meaning he was out for the entire season, he couldn't have played even if he was healthy/wanted to

Todd Collins should not be on the team. We need JC, Colt and a later-round rookie OR FA pickup like Sage Rosenfels competing. Campbell will be the starter regardless, but Colt deserves to compete for the #2 spot. Collins is no longer useful without Saunders.

For some reason very few people like to talk about Colt Brennan anymore. I spoke about him just a week or so ago in another thread and I'm still interested in seeing what the guy can do when given a real opportunity. Zorn was being told what players to play so it soon became obvious Brennan was not going to to have any chance of unseating Jason Campbell as the starting QB even if he hadn't been injured.

I'm anxious to see what he can do with some real coaching and a fair chance. There's no denying his Collegiate credentials are off the charts when it comes to record setting and breaking. I'm hoping we'll get a chance to find out more about Colt Brennan this summer. I'm rather glad Zorn will not be coaching him anymore because I believe he did more harm to Jason Campbell than good by over-coaching him.

Ahhh, the Cult of Colt lives. All hail Pineapple Jesus.

On a more substantive note, I agree with curmudgeon's take. Shannie will give him a good look and go from there.

Re: Colt Brennan vs Rookie class
 
Colt is nothing but Zorn's pet project and will be a back up at best IMO. If Shanahan is going to go with an inexperience QB, he might as well pick up a QB at #4. I'm sure Shanahan will give Colt a look, but I don't think he would gamble starting a late round QB he had no hand in developing.

this is spot on. if we draft a young gun come april, the cult will finally have to lay down their torches and pitchforks. if shanny thinks colt is worth a damn, he will get his shot.

I'm sure MS has watched some film on CB and we'll find out soon enough what he thinks of him. My guess... CB isn't on the roster in 2010. Sorry PJ5 fans.

YES!!!! Finally a thread that is talking about this! I'm a huge Colt Fan. Ive posted many times before he has that IT factor. He takes chances. And in order to be successful. You hafta DARE to be great. He trusts his arm, thinks he can make any throw. He has ridiculous accuracy. and moves the pocket very well. John Madden even said, hes mobile in the pocket and moves the pocket. Those are two HUGE qualities that work really well in Shanahan's offense. And with us workin on building a run 1st offense it wont put too much pressure on him. The question wit Brennan coming outta college was that he came from a spread offense. Well he has been practicing under center for the last two years. He needs an opportunity to show what he can do. This would solve SO many other issues. take an OT (or Berry) at #4. OT in 2nd round, then fill rest of draft wit NT, LB, RB! AHHHHHHHHHH! Shanahan read this THREAD! lol

i dont know how anyone can really have a firm idea of what we have in colt yet. i havent seen nearly enough of him to make a call heads or tails (and this should be laid at the coaching staff's feet - for 2 years now we dont know what we have in a player yet? really?)

i would like to see him [B]start[/B] a pre-season game. for teams with qb situation like ours, whats the point in starting a JC or garrard or edwards or smith all 4 preseason games . . .its not like 1 half of PS football is going to be that missing one half that effected the starters ability to gel.
