Re: Time to bench Brunell? (Mega Man Merge)

Benching MB is way overdue! He definitely should not be the starter! He sucks so bad, he could substitute for a vacuum cleaner! His completion percentage is so low, there is a mud puddle forming over it! His TD ratio is abysmal! His supporters do not know anything about JC and are married to the guy who saved HOF Joe Gibbs life! Wait, that was last week..................

Ummm... I know sarcasm is tough to pick up over the internet, but try to follow the context of the comment a little bit, before slamming someone.

Re: Time to bench Brunell? (Mega Man Merge)

I was praying that he broke the record when it was getting close. All I could think about this thread, and the Ironic punch the the face Brunell gave all the haters.

You thought that was a "punch in the face" to the haters? His performance was well suited to the game plan, but that game plan isn't going to fly against any other team on our schedule. He still has a long way to go to prove that he can lead this team.

10-6 proved enough to me, but oh well.

C'mon - this is the NFL. It's not about what you have done, it's about what you can do. MB did exactly what was asked of him against Houston, and he did an incredible job for the most part. However, you can't seriously suggest that Saunders asked a lot of MB's arm. That's still the unknown, and that's what has been missing for the past 5 games (plus pre-season, which I know you don't count for some reason).

History plays a valid part in evaluating a player. The haters sure do love to throw 2004 in our faces, that's for sure.

The short passes to Moss and Cooley worked GREAT last year for us. Having 4 WRs rather than 1 will help open up the field for us, even if we DO forget the low % bombs for more short passes.

If we're moving the ball, I don't care what "strategy" we use.

Besides, we have guys who can turn screen and shovel passes into the BIG plays you're craving.

Brunell "threw" a 74-yard shovel pass to Portis. I'll take that.

Randel El and Moss will break plenty of big plays this year too.

Did you watch the last few games of last season? We surprised a lot of teams, but they quickly caught on. Our defense kept us in a lot of games, and, thus far, that isn't happening.

This strategy won't work against anyone else we play this year (maybe the Titans).

lol - I "crave" wins, not big plays.

Wins come from a pounding running game, which open up the passing game. If all of the passes are 5 yard screens, teams are going to catch on.

No, Brunell "threw" a 2-yard shovel pass to Portis. Portis ran through the swiss cheese defense of the Texans for another 72 yards.

Why do you want to put all of the pressure on our WRs and RBs to "make big plays"? Doesn't anyone think part of the responsibility is on Brunell to be able to complete the big pass?

Re: Time to bench Brunell? (Mega Man Merge)

did the Texan game say more about them or us? have we grown, or have they regressed?
