Well, I thought of it when it happened. I was in Ramsey's corner but the handwriting was on the wall in preseason. The offense just wasn't working. Brunell or Ramsey...it wouldn't have made any difference.

I don't know that Joe planned it that way to save Patrick's confidence but it worked in his favor.

Re: Who starts at QB?

Schneed 10, sorry for the delayed response. I didn't see your post until now.

That statement right there is a contender for the Schneed10 smackdown of the day award.

Oh no! Not the dreaded smackdown award!

Some dumbass in Green Bay? Um at the time, that would have been Mike Holmgren. And at the time, he let Brunell go because HE HAD BRETT FAVRE. Who only led the team to a Super Bowl victory, of all things.

Yeah...and if you have two very good quarterbacks on your team the smart thing to do is to trade one?

Jesus H Christ. I can't believe what I'm reading.

You forgot the three exclamation points.

But let's go with the Green Bay comparison for a minute.

Let's not since the rest of your post involves hypotheticals based on the unsupported premise that a team with two good quarterbacks should trade one away.

ramsey is gone regardless of whatever's happen, so i have no idea why we're still devoting meaningless 200 post threads to him and if he is or isn't great. He played good in some games and average in more and now he may be a career backup who can't even get us a 5th round pick.

there are still people who swear jeff george can play, I know people get attached to certain players, but its over, he's gone, and its time to move on.

Re: Who starts at QB?

The Packers got a 3rd and a 5th for Brunell. And I think they used the 3rd on Antonio Freeman. It doesn't hurt to have two good young QBs as the Packers had with Favre and Brunell.

But it also doesn't hurt to be able to use one to make your team better overall as the Packers were able to do by trading Brunell.

Joe Gibbs is a Hall of Fame coach. He may LET Saunders make the call. But Gibbs has the power.

Obviously. But don't you think this was decided when they met for 12 hours at Al Saunders' home before Al took the job?

I still think we should pursue the Ramsey for Abraham & the Jets 1st round pick.

Wait, you guys are talkng like this whole "Ramsey's gone" thing is not just a giant hoax. Seriously, you think Patrick is gone? Really? No!?!

Dammit, what are the chances of getting Tim Hasselback back? How 'bout just getting back his hottie of a wife?

I'm saying that from what Joe Gibbs has seen, and there's been plenty of evidence from game tapes of Ramsey since 2002, Brunell was the better option at the time.

Look, I was a fan of Ramsey. I rooted for him. But don't you think if there was truly anything to this guy we would have seen it by now? Or at the very least, that Gibbs would have spotted it?
