When listening to the comments of the "experts", inevitably, it will be Mark Brunell as their chief reason for why they believe the Redskins will fail this season. Nevermind that he had the best touchdown-to-interception ratio of his career, most of the naysayers believe he was running on fumes last year. The fact that the starting offense didn't score a point or even reach the redzone in preseason didn't help to convince anybody otherwise.

If Brunell gets nicked up, and Gibbs shows the type of blind loyalty that he did in the '04 season, only under that scenario would I say they could be right. When healthy, he's more than adequate. But the slightest injury at this stage of Brunell's career seems to render him completely useless. Witness the knee injury in the second Giant game last year as evidence.

Yes, there very well could be "Start Jason Campbell" threads if the Redskins falter tonight -- the problem is, there could be legitimate reasons to start those threads.

Re: 9/11/2006: Redskins (0-0) vs. Vikings (0-0)

Am I the only one who's confused with the whole "Start Betts, Portis is the backup" thing? I mean I've watched a substantial amount of football in my time and I don't ever recall any team doing something like this.

For that matter I don't ever recall a team saying if their starting QB went down in a game, one guy would finish off, but if the QB was out for a while, a different guy would take over.

I'm not saying Gibbs & Co. are wrong or crazy, I'm just saying it's all pretty new to me.

That or I don't pay attention very well.

I just wanted to a get a headstart on this, just in case - shouldn't we star JC? I mean Brunell is all old and washed up.

And yeah, I'll be one of the ones bitching and offering my comments as to why.

By the way, did anyone hear Eric Allen on the Colin Cowherd show on ESPN Radio today? Allen doesn't think the Redskins will be as good "with the same offense that they ran last year."

Too funny. You'd think with as much spare time as Eric Allen has blabbing about something he's paid to know about, he would keep up with current events and realize that it is, in fact, a different offense for the Redskins this year.
I think what Eric Allen was saying, or trying to say, was that he didn't think Mark Brunell could be successful in this offense two years in a row. He doesn't think Brunell is the answer. He phrased it very poorly and he's wrong of course.

did anyone see that GMC commercial on ESPN's pregame show...they showed #28's, in my opinion, most famous play...him jumping over a defender on a punt return on his way to a touchdown despite broken ribs...now I am pumped

ESPN just reported that Vikings DB Dwight Smith is inactive (disciplinary for getting a blow job in public).
