What QB is out there that is worth bringing in at this point??

Eggs-freakin-zackly! That's an easy one = no one.
I take that back. I would consider Trent Green as a backup to JC in place of Mark Brunell.

Other than DE, DT and maybe a Safety, what would we possibly need?
What other right moves are needed?
I guess you didn't read my follow up?

But is he worth trading for?

724 just took my dream answer... Trent Green is available and has proven he can get the job done.

I know he could never come back to DC, at this point in their respective careers, Gus would hold up better than Brunell. There are several more experienced QB's out there that can be better than where we are.

( and yes, I am well aware of the fact that since I mentioned Gus in a positive light, the attacks will be fast and relentless now)

Right now, I would say Brunell for Green, straight up. It would be a slight upgrade at best. In other words, it's not really all that worth it.

I'm not sure of the benefit of bringing in an aging QB who's best days are behind him to replace, well, an aging QB who's best days are behind him.

Gus?

I guess I'll have to ask again... what QB is out there that is worth bringing in at this point??

Re: Be Bold 4/15/07

Matty - you asked for my opinion, and I gave it.... the 2 QBs I mentioned still have a year or two left... Brunell should have retired before last season.

There are ALOT of other options out there... I just gave 2

Re: Be Bold 4/15/07

I'm just stating my opinion too. I don't see the point of "upgrading" if it doesn't represent a real upgrade.

If we're discussing Gus as an option then we've got serious problems.

And if we did bring him in and JC can't beat him out, we've really got serious problems.

Re: Be Bold 4/15/07

The only advantage of changing backup QBs is some fresh material for the message boards. Ideally, as is the case with most teams in the leauge, Jason Campbell as the starting QB will be the QB for all 16 games.

Here are some "bold" predictions:

1. Brunell won't take the field in 2007 for any meaningful playing time...yet somehow he'll be brought up in every other thread.

2. Fully healthy Santana Moss will resurrect his early 2005 season, while El and Lloyd will step up as #2 and #3 receivers. But we'll still ask, even at 6-2 at the midway point, why didn't we draft Calvin Johnson who will be tearing it up for the 3-5 Tampa Bay Bucs.

3. We'll barely squeak out a win (or even lose it) after Gibbs decides to play the percentages instead of going for the jugular. Someone will start a "Has Gibbs Lost It" sometime in mid-October

4. Clinton Portis will get stuffed on a 4th and 2 attempt up the gut. All hell will break loose on the warpath

Your last sentence says it all Matty.

I would rather see us use our pick for a stud WR. Right now we have quality guys... comperable to a Gary Clark (who should be a HOFer).... but without Art Monk, Clark would not have had the success he had.
So what did you expect from a qb who was in his first year starting? Remember the guy got no reps w/ the first team since he was drafted. Who do you want to bring in to compete w/ JC? Who is out on the waiver wire that is better? Do u suggest we trade draft picks for 65 year old Trent Green?
