Re: Brunell Lost a step?

This thread is insane. Everybody needs to take a deep breath. How can anyone say that Brunell lost a step when he ran the offense for 5 minutes?

Give me two tightends, the starting line, and Betts or Portis in the backfield. Run 50 gut. If they get shutdown on that, then I will worry. Otherwise, this panic over the first pre-season game is comical.

I agree with you wholeheartedly. That was just the very first pre-season game, the team will regroup and play better Saturday night against the Jets. We will continue to improve as the pre-season unfolds. Rome wasn't built in a day, that's why I have learned to temper my summer expectations, not talk SB before we win some games. It's great to have high hopes and great expectations, but at the same time they must be simmered with reality.

Re: Brunell Lost a step?

I think alot of the worry is that he'll (Brunell) return to "disgruntled" form again. The age old argument has it's legitimacy, but definitly not from a series or two last night.

If anything I'm excited because Jason Campbell looked like the opposite of "crazy legs" ramsey. His footwork was without the Ramsey-esque panic, and he had the poise that we've all been waiting for.

The climax of that game for me was JC's beautiful pass downfield to Ortega or whatever his name is.

Re: Brunell Lost a step?

he's 36! what do you expect? of course he's not the player he used to be. if he was, they'd be making medicines from his blood. everyone's aware, including Brunell, and again, the transition is already underway.

until then, he's smart enough and not dead enough to carry this offense along.

Re: Brunell Lost a step?

joe gibbs is great....

it may not work out this way... but the timing seems undeniable...

as brunell plays probably his last effective season in the nfl...
Jason Campbell is on the verge of his first effective season...

Good job of pointing that out. I work during the day so I dont get to listen to a dozen of Brunells statements.
