No JC didn't have control over the D, but you have to ask yourself why was the D so horrible from the previous season? Brunell was absolutely horrid himself at QB. 3 and outs were quite common, leaving the D on the field for 2/3 of the game in many instances. Of course a D is going to falter when out on the field for that long. If JC would have started 5-6 weeks earlier than what Coach put him in we could have at least won 3 of those games. IF JC was the qb, our scoring would have increased probably 10-14 points a game, given the D a nice rest, and at 9-7 gotten us a wildcard berth.

This analysis seems to be based in weak self serving evidence.

The starting field position for our offense was No. 32 in the league. Both of our return units ranked pretty well. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out the common denominator.

I really can't believe you'd come to this conclusion AFTER we played Campbell and scoring and yardage both decreased. It's like, the projections proved your theory wrong, and then it was proved wrong on the field, and yet you still stand by it.

One thing that I do agree with you on is that had Campbell gotten more starts, he also would have gotten more quality starts near the end of the year. But there was no way to avoid those first 5 games of Campbell's tenure when our passing game was a black hole. The plan was to have a decent defense, and let Brunell play the way he did for us en route to 11 or 12 wins and a deep playoff run. If Brunell had gotten injured late in the season, we might have needed Collins to play instead of Campbell. He gonna be good, but like every other QB to ever play, theres an adjustment period.

You couldn't have actually watched last season and thought that we had a passing game in between Weeks 11 and 15. That's just not possible.

Re: 2007 NFC East Predictions

In all fairness GTripp, Brunell wasn't lighting things up either. In his 9 starts he only had 3 games where he passed for more than 200 yards.

But, this thread is about predictions, not the past, so let's just move on.
