Thumbs down Re: Time to bench Brunell?

boonell needs to step aside....i believe i saw more guys open on t.v. than he did....down field open guys at that. he has not taken a shot down the field yet. last week there was one completion to moss for 34. that is it. i think cooley should cut that hair where he could get a step on someone and get open. he has been smothered and nonexistent. could the d line please get some pressure on the qb. the corners would not have to work so hard if they could. bledsoe had all day.
let's hope for major improvement. next week might be as easy as it will get this season.

Re: Bench Brunell

If Campbell starts the offense will go into the toilet.

Re: Time to bench Brunell?

I said in one of my post during the week that Brunell has to play better for us to have any chance at winning, he didn't do it. I have always been a supporter of this guy but right now I'm at a crossroads where he is concerned, and it could very well be the time now for JG to think about a change even though Brunell is not the only reason why we're not winning.

Brunell Solely Responsible for Loss?

I believe Mark Brunell's inability to throw the ball downfield or get the ball in playmaker's hands is the major reason the Redskins lost. He never looked comfortable in the pocket all night even though pass protection was overall adequate under the circumstances. Something is up with his confidence or his mechanics because several times during the evening he was unable to make the routine throw.

Re: Bench Brunell

brunell looks like he is too worried with making a mistake, dude needs to play and not always looking to throw it away

Re: Time to bench Brunell?

id pull now as well, brunell (knowing the offense or not) is now a QB we have to max protect all the time and send out cooley and moss. if you watch the game, he is so damn timid when anyone is near. he will fold under pressure and holds the ball so damn long for the end result to be a sack. no matter the offensive calls, you will always have pressure, and thats something brunell obviously cannot handle and w/o legs.... he is a guy scared who cant even run away. the pass that was int'd was so horrible, it looked like one of frost's punts. IF ANYTHING, CAMPBELL WILL ATLEAST GIVE US MORE SCRAMBLE ABILITY. SO IF CAMPBELL SUCKS JUST AS BAD AS BRUNELL, WE WILL ATLEAST HAVE A GUY THE WOULD CREATE MORE PLAYMAKING ABILITY AND THAT CHANCE IS ALWAYS THERE.... WITH BRUNELL ITS FLAT OUT NOT THERE.

Unhappy Re: Brunell Solely Responsible for Loss?

I have to start off by saying what I imagine many were thinking at the beginning of this season: that the Skins were going to be even better this year. They made some key acquisitions (not just big names as they have in the past), they brought an offensive guru, and got rid of a potential distraction (Arrington...though I did question it at the time). I unfortunately see a team in every bit of an offensive funk as they were towards the tail end of the season of 05. Against Philidelphia in the last game the offense looked a little suspect, then against Tampa Bay it was dead, and again Seattle it was never revived. Since those games the progression has only become worse. Four straight awful preseason games followed by two pathetic regular season games for a total of potentially nine games now that they looked poor on offense. So one has to begin to question what happened around this time....and there it is. The injury to Brunell. Since that time Brunell has been playing not to get hurt and not to win. The fire in Brunell is not only gone but completely burned out. When the fire of Brad Johnson (who is almost 2 years Brunells senior) is greater we have real problems. Did any notice Brad's comments when he scored the tying touchdown...something like "motherf&*&er". I would love to have a quaterback with that passion. Instead after each unnecessary toss away pass, or patheticly missed throw he walks off the field with an air of smug appathy and acceptace of his feeble abilities. He looks to Gibbs as if saying "I'm not sure what happened". I can tell you what happened. You are way way past your prime, and your passion for this game and for winning is nonexsistent to the point that it is apparent in every play you are a part of. In short...the time is to move on. Not next season...not in 4 games..but next game. Anyone who thinks we are going to even make it to the playoffs this year is fooling themselves...not in this division...not this year. If we accept that the future is Jason Cambell then why not move in this direction now. Give the kid a chance to grow and if we finish poor this season at least we may get a decent draft from it. I finish with this.

The defense and special...not the offense kept us in the game. And when the defense put the Skins in a position to tie at the 40 yard line it was not Cooley, Moss, Betts, Al Saunders, or Gibbs who gave away the drive and in the end lost the game. It was Brunell!

Re: Time to bench Brunell?

I kinda agree with your assessment of brunells complete ineptness...and i wouldnt be against a move to campbell...

However i will not write off the season right now. Ive waited too damn long for it to be redskins season...to just write it off after two shitty games.

If its time for the campbell era to begin (which in it seems to be) so be it. Then lets hope Jason campbell...is our own Roethlisberger waiting in the wings...and its time to get behind him to lead us to a SB!!!
