Re: Brunell Back in 2007?

I am betting that he stays as a back up. If for no other reason than that Gibbs really likes him. With him as the back- up, Gibbs will feel that he has two starting QB's on the roster. Another QB will be aquired to be next year's number 2 and be given a year to acclimate.

Re: Brunell Back in 2007?

Brunell's been a good QB over the past couple of years. now he's just gotten too old to do much. JC's doing an awesome job, and im very excited to see what he'll do for us next season. I just don't see brunell starting next year as a possibility. I would however love for him to stay to give JC some advice that he needs. the problem of his contract is what worries me. if Gibbs makes the decision to extend his contract to keep him as a backup, i hope Snyder stays out of it and allows brunell to stay on. of course i think even snyder knows not to push Gibbs around.

Re: Brunell Back in 2007?

I do agree he would be a valuable backup, but a part of me would be nervous that Gibbs would go back to him.

It's a bit of a relief though that Campbell looks promising, I think as long as he keeps it up he will remain the unquestioned starter next year. Gibbs' comments about JC lately seem to indicate that he's gaining confidence in him and he's impressed with how well he's handling things.

You're absolutely correct! He's remained positive even when the cards were not in his favor. His sportsmanship is to be admired. I could see him following the path of Ray Brown (in some media spotlight).

If he is happy being a backup and taking a pay cut then he is more than welcome to stay.
You show me a person playing that does not think they should be a starter and will show you a total looser.

Re: Brunell Back in 2007?

Yeah of course Brunell wants to start and believes he still can. There are plenty of guys that never come to the realization that they can't play anymore.

I don't think Brunell has reached that point where he can't play at all anymore, but his starting days are definitely behind him.

I agree but if I heard a player say that they could not be a starter I would worry about them as a player. Yes, there are guys who are back ups and know where they fit in but if asked they would say that they could be starters.

Re: Brunell Back in 2007?

I don't believe Mark will retire this year, but I kind of see Gibbs convincing Brunell to stick it out at least one more year with the Redskins.

Re: Brunell Back in 2007?

Mark to his credit was having a decent year, statistically anyway. I agree his starting days as a #1 guy are behind him. With that said, he has been nothing but class since coming to this team, accepting what ever role he is asked to do. I wouldn't mind him as a backup. problem with that is, when or if Jason starts to struggle, is Coach Joe going to pull the string too quick to get his VET back on the field. Joe has no patience for young players that make mistakes.

Re: Brunell Back in 2007?

I'm wondering what affect Brunell's return next year would have on the continued maturation process of Jason Campbell. Many times for a young QB knowing the coaches' favorite is still lurking in the background can cause uneasyness, feeling the slightest decline in play, he may be replaced. I wouldn't have a problem with Brunell's return if it could be worked out. I could be wrong, but my gut feeling is, it could be a distraction. I just think it's time for the team to move on " COMPLETELY".

Mark Brunell: 2007 Comeback Player of the year.
He will be in Oakland and help Moss regain his old form.
Hey, My guess is as good as your...

Re: Brunell Back in 2007?

He'll be straight for a back-up. I could see him coming in if needed,and playing well. For a short stint(6 quarters). Just as long as the team continues to be lead by JC, I would'nt have a problem with it at all.

Re: Brunell Back in 2007?

At 36 turning 37 early next year, he's probably too old to start over somewhere as the starter. He could be a backup in pretty much any system.

Gibbs isn't stupid though. He's loyal to all his players. When Mark was the starter, he was loyal to him. He made the change, and he will be loyal to his new QB.

He has to be and he knows it. The Ramsey situation...that was an exception, but I think it had a lot to do with the Campbell selection in the 05 draft.

Re: Brunell Back in 2007?

He would be a top shelf backup anywhere at this point. I would like to keep him around. I think he could be very good over a few games for us and I think he can be a positive example on Campbell because he has been a great Pro QB and knows how to act.

He only comes back with a renegotiated contract though, for backup pay. He's due a $6.63 million cap hit in 2007!
