Re: Brunell is Bad

I can't believe this discussion is still going on. Nobody on here is saying Mark Brunell is the premiere QB in the NFL, but this is a guy who 3/4 through the season was at the top of the list of candidates for Comeback Player of the Year before getting injured. Now I'm sorry, but you don't get that sort of recognition simply because your a "component of a system", and to say that player is "bad" is just ignorant.

Would I like to see a little better production from our QB position? Of course. Does a part of me hope the QB position is an open competition so JC can light it up & be our starter? Absolutely. Is Mark Brunell a "Bad" QB? No way in hell.

And I don't think '04 was his fault at all. I blame the OL and new team scheme. Giving him credit for last's turn around is irresponsible. We have all seen Gibb's ability to plug components into his system and find success(Rypien and Williams). My point is brunell is a component in an already successful scheme that needed one year to re-tool. The offense is working well together and that is the result of gibb's teaching not brunell's leadership. I think my perspective is much like gibb's right. he brought brunell in to run the offense. he brought in a rookie to be taught. he got what he needed out of brunell but wishes it had been a little more.

Gibb's knows Brunell sucks, that is why he drafted Campbell and that's why campbell will be our opening day starter.
I don't believe anybody is giving him sole credit for our turnaround this past season, but it is truly irresponsible to give him absolutely no credit whatsoever. If Gibbs truly thought Brunell "sucks" he would not have been starting Brunell this past year. He drafted Campbell because Gibbs knows Brunell isn't going to be playing for another 10 years. Gibbs didn't draft Campbell because Brunell sucks. That to me sounds quite ignorant. Sorry, but it does.

Gibbs brought Brunell in to run the offense and to teach the younger qbs how to manage the offense and how to be good leaders. Gibbs also brought Brunell in, because he felt Mark gave us a chance to be successful, and so far, Gibbs has been absolutely right. Mark will, again, be our starter on opening day this season. He may or may not finish as our starting quarterback, but there is no reason to make a change now.

Re: Brunell is Bad

Ugggg, I've entered a time warp to last September. Maybe we should debate in 9 separate threads whether it was wise to let go of Stephen Davis. This topic is as tired as the elastic on J.Lo.'s panties.

Yeah and 50/50 is going to be our premier receiver this year!
Regret nothing. At one time it was exactly what you wanted.

I think we drafted Campbell because Gibbs thinks Ramsey sucks, not Brunell.

Can't believe I got sucked into this thread.

I think it's because he thinks both of them suck.

Re: Brunell is Bad

it musst be offseason, i think we're done now :P

besides, we have more important things to worry about, like... should we bring in TO, OR should with bring in TO, randy Moss, Meshawn and the defense from the 85 bears? I hear they're only asking for a 7th round pick.
Who says shameless self promotion is stupid? oh yeah, that was me... Click For Tunes!
