I believe the the new CBA allows us to cut him before June and still spread the cap hit over two years. The new CBA allows two vet players to be cut before June and still treated as if they were cut after June 1. I don't think he gets cut in almost any circumstance but just raising the point.

Re: Starting Campbell Now Makes Cap Sense

That's great but you can't run a football team with one eye on the cap during the season.

A few more losses and I'm all for putting in Campbell, but right now while there is still a glimmer of hope Brunell will remain the starter.

Regardless of what happens I don't see Brunell on the roster next year, unless it's with a huge paycut and he's the unquestioned backup. Year 3 for Campbell, it's time to start no matter what.

Re: Starting Campbell Now Makes Cap Sense

Im all for benching Brunell, for either cap or performance issues. He is one of the most inconsistent and irratic QBs the skins have ever had. He had all day yesterday and couldnt make a play to save his life (or our season). Throwing a hail mary into triple coverage when there is still a min left is moronic. There are quite a few qbs starting in the NFL and winning that have the similar or less experience than JC, (Rivers, Young, Smith, Leinart, Manning, Palmer) give him the damn ball already. I would be happier watching the skins lose and in the thick of it, rather than them going three and out over and over again cause our over the hill qb cant complete a simple pass over ten yards. I know he only had one pick yesterday but he should have had 4! Pull the trigger JOE!

Re: Starting Campbell Now Makes Cap Sense

i hate it when people say Brunell is inconsistent, he's TOO consistent. everyone knows exactly what to expect from him and that's the problem. when you KNOW his first read on a blitz is the dump off, you game plan that. when you KNOW he'll only throw deep near the sideline, you go cover-2. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

Brunell: the best way to lose games without getting INTs.

Re: Starting Campbell Now Makes Cap Sense

I'd rather let Campbell get a game under his belt before the Bye week. That gives him two weeks after his first NFL start to get his questions answered, watch film, and might give him a better chance at understanding what's expected and what he has to work on. We're done. Brunell's done. Lets toss in the kid, hope for a spark of light, but most importantly give him a chance when expectations are low to start working.

Re: Starting Campbell Now Makes Cap Sense

The problems on this team run soooo much deeper than one person, I can't believe how much debate goes on over this.

Re: Starting Campbell Now Makes Cap Sense

And no ones saying Campbell will come in and light the place up. It's possible. We want him to have starting experience because this season is most likely gone, and Mark Brunell has played poorly.

unlike the DB situation, or the Dline situation, or the Oline situation, the QB is a position we can actually do something about.

Well. I think RedskinRat called Campbell better than McNabb. So if that's the case he damn well better light the place up

Re: Starting Campbell Now Makes Cap Sense

What about trying to trade Brunell to a place like Oakland or Clevleand in exchange for a early 3rd round pick, at best? Then use that, our probable mid-20's first round pick from Denver, and maybe someone/something else to get a QB in the draft this year. If all else fails, how about Favre?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I said it earlier but, dude, i was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO totally joking...we'd be WAAAYYYY worse off with Favre....yes he can pass, but not very good, and he's WAAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYA over the hill, or at least past the prime where he can jumpstart an ailing offense.....

fuck brett favre, he had his chance when he was young...give Campbell his.....

Certainly I'm no friggin genius but all the facts are there.

I honestly do not think Brunell is the sole problem with the team or why their offense is so inconsistent, but I will say he is part of the problem. As fans we sometimes get frustrated with JG because he does not seem to think Brunell has anything to do with the teams poor showing in the passing game. I'd be willing to bet there are coaches around the league that would have benched Brunell for good long time ago. Again it's not all his fault, but he's the trigger man.
