Re: Brunell sucks

Confession is good for the soul #56 (if not for the ego).
I read a post not long ago suggesting Ramsey has a relatively small contract in 2006. I don't know if his ego could stand it, but it would be nice to keep him, if he comfortable in that role. Brunell ain't getting any younger, and Campbell isn't ready. With the quarterback shortage in the NFL, if traded he may go higher than the 3rd or 4th round pick, as suggested. if not, keep him

Nobody was told to shut up. You are absolutely correct - generally speaking, everyone is entitled to voice their opinion on this site. Some opinions - like calling for dumping Brunnell - are simply more moronic than others. Sunra was merely highlighting the idiocy of such a call after Brunnell's accomplishments this season - especially from a Redskins fan as such a person is one whom others would expect to have Brunnell's accomplishments during the course of the season.
Wow. Your'e on the case. Want to represent me in court? LOL

With a defense that is as good as ours, you minimize your mistakes, and let the D give you field position. Ramsey would not have been able to complete a season with 22 TDs and ONLY 9 picks. Time and time again Brunell stepped up and made playes, whether is was throwing the ball away, moving around in the pocket buying some time, or running for the a big first down, which he has done a number of times this season. There is no other guy that deserves to be or frankly should be behind center than Brunell. He is our guy, and if hes healthy will be next year too. Ramsey will be dealt to the highest bidder, Campbell will be the #2 next year, then might start year #3. Dont hate on Brunell, without him we are not even in the playoffs.
I to was in the frame of mind that you had!!! But when I saw that Ramsey was so bad and the news that Burnell was hurt last season along with his better showin in the perseason I was with you! I believe that we would have not made the play-offs with out Burnell! He played well on one leg this week and i hope he is well this week against TB for us to win!!!

Many just see what Brunell is doing and assume that is all any QB can do, but I say this, Ramsey's arm strength could very possibly stretch the defense much more than Brunell, allowing more room for the underneath passing game, as well as bigger gains for Portis. Ramsey can through a dart 50 yards downfield, a defense has to account for that, who here wouldn't want to see Moss at full speed down the sideline, and Ramsey trying to over throw him? I know defenses wouldn't like to see that, the first time Ramsey hit's Moss for a TD 60 yards in the air as Moss out runs the depth of the defense, and Ramsey throws the ball further than most QB's in the league it will scare the daylights out of any secondary and force them to take much deeper drops, we will not see that happen with Brunell. Is Brunell getting the job done in recent week's? Yes, but can we be even better? My opinion is YES! But that is for next year, Brunell if healthy has to be the man through the playoffs.

We're running the ball on first and second down almost exclusively. I don't call that aggressive playcalling, just hard nosed football...that is exactly what alot of you people complained about. The only reason why we are holding leads or adding onto them in the fourth is because of our running game being so hard to stop now. I'll also say it again....it takes more than arm strength to be a good quarterback and a good leader.
Not the same Skinsguy that posts on ES.

Re: Brunell sucks

yeah... can we lock this shit up?? I swear every time Im in a good mood and sign on someone else has posted this thing right up at the top of my list... and it never goes away.

Is it me or does Brunell always seem somewhat unhappy in his press conferences... I think we kind of scarred him a bit with him having his family see us (fans in general) booing him off the field last year, and now he can't go anywhere or do anything without seeing us saying how bad he sucks... I'd hate to see him go anywhere, but I can't for the life of me see anyone sticking around after winning 10 reg. season games and taking a team to the playoffs for the first time in 6 years and still having to hear shit about how he sucks.

Re: Brunell sucks

I'm just curious, and I'm sure others are wondering it as well. Offiss, if the Redskins had started Ramsey from day one and let's say the team finished 8-8 and out of the playoffs. Would you be happier than 10-6 and in the playoffs with Brunell?

Re: Brunell sucks

Just in case you mixed them up..
Brunell is the one that has been to the probowl and Playoffs. He made it to the AFC Championship game. Wears #8.
Ramsey is the other guy, the guy that has never been on a winning team in th NFL or College. Hasn't been on a winning team since his high school team. Wears #11. Has been sacked alot in his career.

Re: Brunell sucks

Okay, I haven't been to the site in about three days or so. Before the game.

I can't believe the title of this thread, nor people that would like to suggest that Patrick Ramsey would be doing better at this point.

That's just mind boggling!!

Wait, I'm sure there's still a "Clinton Portis is a system back" thread on here too!!

Great win!!

Re: Brunell sucks

Why are we still having a QB debate?

We're in the playoffs for the first time in years, and yet people still want to imagine what our season would have been like if Ramsey had started.

Who cares, seriously?

We've got a playoff game on Saturday. A playoff game that Mark Brunell helped guide us to. A guy who threw for over 3000 yards and posted an excellent TD to INT ratio, yet we're still debating who should be starting.

I don't get it.

Thread locked, let's talk about the playoffs.
