I disagree with that assessment. Brunell goes thru reads better than Ramsey or Campbell and only scrambled because he needed to. It bought more time for someone to get open, which didn't happen enough last season. Presumably with the new receivers, two or three targets can get separation is 3 seconds or less.

Re: Your expectations/predictions for the 2006 Redskins

My predictions for the 2006 Washington Redskins.
1) Win the NFC East (sweep the Cowgirls).
2) Win at least 11 games.
3) Make it to the NFC Championship, possibly the Superbowl barring any major injuries or setbacks.
4) Pro Bowl: Clinton Portis, Chris Samuel, Randy Thomas, Chris Cooley, Santana Moss, Marcus Washington and Sean Taylor(aquitted).

Re: Your expectations/predictions for the 2006 Redskins

Last year was the first year in a long time in which I actually predicted them worse than .500 (predicted 6-10). With that in mind, I'm picking 2-14 but I can't say why because my conscious mind will catch on and force me to type my actual prediction of 14 an .... oops almost let it out. Trust me my prediction is going to be right on.

Re: Your expectations/predictions for the 2006 Redskins

You asked AS OF RIGHT NOW. So here's my assessment:

The passing game improves, Portis and Cooley are good again, the defensive line is upgraded, the linebacking is about the same, the safeties are upgraded. But the CBs and offensive line depth are weaker right now. There is no depth. At some point, some of those players will get injured and we'd be starting the Ade or Jim Molinaro at some point. Not good.

It's also unrealistic to expect the transition to Saunders to be completely seamless. It's not a major adjustment, but it is a bit of a change.

Given that, I think we go 10-6 the way we're currently comprised.

But, ask me how we look once we add a nickel CB, some o-line depth, and a linebacker. I'm liable to tell you we look like NFC Championship game material, at the bare minimum.

How would you know he does it better than Campbell who hasn't played?

I guess he's just a fast reader.

Re: Your expectations/predictions for the 2006 Redskins

Does this mean that since Brunell is a scrambling QB and Saunders offense is geared towards pocket-passing that Saunders isn't going to be crafty enough or Brunell isn't going to spend more in practice throwing from the pocket?
There is a little bit of playful sarcasm there but not my intentions are not malicious. I just think the point of Brunell being just a scrambler is overemphasized. If there is a problem I'm sure Gibbs and Saunders have given it thought and talked with Brunell about their plans and whatever revisions are necessary.

Okay. I feel a whole lot better.

Re: Your expectations/predictions for the 2006 Redskins

1. 11-5 record.. I think they are clearly improved from last years 10 win team and coming in with a lot more confidence. I didn't feel they believed in Gibbs until the Rams game.

2. Make it to the NFC Championship game, no telling what happens then.

3. Portis will be the MVP, 1500+ yds, 12-15 TD

4. I predict top 8 in offense and defense but we will continue to struggle to cause turnovers.. Also we will be debating whether Eric Mangini gave Patrick Ramsey a fair shake for the Jets QB job.

On the extremeskins site, about 250 fans voted that Ramsey had not had a fair shake as a Redskin by a margin of almost exactly two to one.

Brunell starts because he has the experience to read defenses and make the right decision on the play. First and second year QBs get "played" by good NFL defenses. It didn't help Alex Smith to start in San Francisco as a rookie. The Niners would have won a few more games with Tim Rattay, even if Rattay has less talent than Smith. Young quarterbacks are almost always better off if they can get tutored and study film their first two or three seasons before they are regular starters.

This is NOT a knock on Campbell, just a comment on his experience. In another season, Patrick Ramsey is going to be a fine quarterback for someone.

We're talking about different things.

I was talking about the "reads" that are designed into pass plays...going from one receiver to the next if the first isn't open.

Re: Your expectations/predictions for the 2006 Redskins

Too early to tell. We should revisit this after free agency, the draft, and training camp. Then, after cuts, injuries, and a talent preview, we can give some educated guesses.

Let's put a lid on this super bowl talk. It's March.
