Re: Can Brunell lead this team to a super bowl?

SC you make some really valid points... you take the Bengals as an example of what you just said... a few seasons ago, Kitna took them to .500 (the first time in very long time for cincy). Management didn't draft carson first for nothing, so they dictated that he start his second season. The Bengals lost four out of their first five, but ended up .500 with Palmer. And look how he did this season, after a full year of playing.

Then again, we are a legitimate Super Bowl threat next season if we're able to keep our corp in tact and with a few more FAs, it could put us over the top. And like you stated, you're not sure when the next time comes around to win it all. I think the Bengals couldn't justify sitting Palmer more than a year, while the Skins can afford to ease Jason in slowly.

Of course Brunnel can do it. Gibbs does not rely on the QB being a superstar to win suprbowls. He relies on his offensive line.

Am I the only one who feels like losing Randy Thomas was a huge reason for our offensive fall off? It just seemed like he was the only guy who could really pull with power and stay out in front of Portis. Losing him slowed the running game which, in turn, hurt the passing game.

I think that we need to go after a "super-backup" o-lineman in free agency and find another receiver to go with Moss and Patten. That and continuity may be all we need to get to the next level.

Re: Can Brunell lead this team to a super bowl?

I certainly think Brunell can! It depends on what talent he has around him. Two homerun receivers and a third possession type receiver, and of course a great running game, there is no reason why Brunell couldn't lead this team to a Super Bowl.

Re: Can Brunell lead this team to a super bowl?

the question was can brunell lead us to the superbowl, in which case, the answer in definately not. He can be a part of a superbowl team possibly, but he's not a star or exceptional QB, he's just another piece of the offense. He does what he's told, plays super conservative no risks until the end of the fourth quarter when trailing by 14 and he doesn't even have the authority or want to call ANY audibles at all. If a running play is called and 11 men are in the box, he's going to go ahead and hand it off anyways (which is why we had such a terrible time beating arizona). He's not leading, he's following orders in the strictest sense.

I think that is where our offense has the most trouble, not so much Gibbs schem but the fact that when we are at the line and it is obvious that the D is going to blitz or if you see a corner playing off of Moss by like 7 or 8 yards we do not audible to take advantage of it. Or maybe, like some posted, Brunell is not alowed to...
