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.

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".
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!

Re: Brunell Back in 2007?

Re: Brunell Back in 2007?

Why is it that everyone's dancing around the main issue here?



Mark Brunell has the best head of hair in all of football. Frankly, he should be promoted to the coaching staff to make sure the helmet doesn't ruin his line.

Re: Brunell Back in 2007?

Brunell will stick around in a backup role next year with a renegotiated contract. I think he actually likes it here. In addition, I remember an article where he says that he's appreciative for every year he plays now since he knows he's near the end of his career. While he feels he can start, I think he realizes that no team will give him that chance.
I also agree with the prior poster who said that he has always been a class act.

As far as favorites, Ramsey was the only male that I can think of who was "statuesque". Gibbs selected JC, and I would imagine with his play call on the Cooley TD, JC is at least a co-favorite of Gibbs now. Gibbs knows that, all things being equal, it is better to have JC in the game. I don't anticipate Gibbs pulling JC unless he starts putting up Vick-like passing numbers.

I think there are going to be a few teams shaking things up next year. Even if Brunell stays put in D.C., I could still see a starting opportunity coming up somewhere in the league.

Re: Brunell Back in 2007?

I won't criticize him from a team standpoint, he's been a team guy & been classy, but it's obvious that he's been padding his retirement too. His reluctance to stay in the pocket 1 second longer to make a throw, or to run (which he still can, just not as fast) shows to the league that he's either lost his judgement, or is not willing to take a hit. He plays not to lose, whether its his fault or Gibbs' coaching him that way.
I don't see him getting much other than a #2 job anywhere else. He could help us here as a backup, but the question is do we need he AND Collins?
I've said in other posts we really need to get a qb w/a late rnd. pick or undrafted free agent & groom them as a future backup. W/ 2 old backups, that isn't possible.

correction, we could keep a young qb on the practice squad. that would be ideal

You are right about that.

I don't know how he's kept it with all of the helmet-wearing. Most QBs are half-bald many years before Mark's age. He has a supernatural scalp.
