Would cutting Mark Brunell boost Jason Campbell's confidence?

Just wondering - wouldn't cutting Brunnel next year boost JC's confidence because it would eliminate Gibb's ability to pull the trigger if JC comes out slow next season? You would still have Todd Collins as your backup who knows the system so you have someone to come in in case JC's gets banged up.

Just wanted the boards thoughts on this one....

No, JC likes Brunell and his 37 year old arse is not a threat to anyone anymore. I could see a point if there were any friction between the two of them but there has never been any evidence of that...

Brunell is a valuable backup and from all accounts he's a great team guy. I fully expect him to be back with a restructured contract.

I would expect him to help school JC, as he needs it, and JC will benefit from having MB around

Before everyone jumps all over me for saying this...this is only my opinion....

I think that we SHOULD cut Brunell but bring in someone a little younger than Brunell but better than Collins because I really do not think that Campbell will be productive enough to last the entire year next year.

I hope that the quaterback Gods comes and help JC out during the offseason and he comes in next year slinging it like P. Manning but right now he is more like E. Manning and I would like some protection against him totally flubbing it next year. Collins nor Brunell is very good protection

Exactly. Brunell as much as his play has been poor this year, has always been a great team guy. As a backup, I dont mind having him on the team because you could do a HELL of a lot worse for a backup QB.

Matty - if Brunnel were to restructure have you heard how much it would be restrucutred to? For a backup qb is a salary of $1-2 million about right? Right now the cap schedule on the site states that Brunell is to make $6.6 million in 2007 - how much of a cut would he be willing to take?

Re: Would cutting Brunnel boost JC's confidence?

Dear God, would you really want Collins coming in if something happened to Jason? At least we know what to expect from Mark. He could be a good backup and mentor here for another couple of years if he could handle it, pride-wise.

Look at it this way, he's facing restructuring his deal or probably retiring.

#1, nobody is going to give him the kind of money he can make here as a starter or as a backup elsewhere, and #2 nobody is going to want him as their starter. He doesn't have much leverage here.

And who knows, with fresh legs he could probably fill in for a game or two if needed and do a great job.

Re: Would cutting Brunnel boost JC's confidence?

I think JC's confidence needs to be built through good play and the respect he'll get from team mates with said good play. Brunell isn't going to be a distraction because I think even the Brunell apologists now realize that JC is the man in DC. He'd have to really regress from where he is even now to start worrying about MB.

As far as I am concerned an off-season and training camp of work on the scheme and some focus on his accuracy would make him a beeter QB than MB has been even when he was playing well for us.

I've said in other threads that we need to draft or pick up a young qb, somebody we can groom as a backup to JC. Brunell will likely be here, but at the same time I'm starting to think that maybe he'll get cut, just a feeling. Gibbs has cut vets before, its never easy for him but he's done it. I could see him cutting Brunell if our salary cap situatiion is dire. I know, Brunell is his boy, & all logic would indicate that he'll restructure & be here. I'm just going on a hunch.
