Re: What must Brunell do?

I've been saying all offseason, if your biggest offensive worry is Mark Brunell, you will have a very successful offense.

This isn't Aaron Brooks or some journeyman snob. This is Mark Brunell. QB of the Jaguars in their heyday. Man who led the 2005 Redskins to the playoffs despite little offensive talent. Yes, he has issues. But he is a constant, not a varible. As long as the offense is working around him, he will complete a high percentage, scramble when necessary, not throw picks, and win more than he loses.

That is what he needs to do to really make me believe in him again. I don't think he is throwing deep because he won't look deep for fear of getting hit. I hope I'm wrong.
Although toughness is certainly a virtue for a NFL quarterback, I think we have to keep his health in mind. We don't have anything behind Brunell. So he, at age 36, can't be pulling Leftwich's and stepping into injury. Just can't happen. Yes, he throws off his back foot more than I'd like and loses accuracy, but keep the big picture in mind here; he needs to make it through the season.

I get the feeling that if we are in a tied Super Bowl in the 3rd quarter and Santana breaks free on a deep post, Brunell will step right into a D Lineman to deliever the ball in stride.
