Re: What!!!? Brunell to the Falcons?

I really don't see Atlanta even being interested in MB, other than depth. In the same role he's already in. This just doesn't make a whole lot a sense to me , nor do I think this move will happen.

Re: What!!!? Brunell to the Falcons?

If Brunell is healthy enough for Atl to trade for him then he is healthy enough to play for us and will be our 2nd stringer. He is not getting traded. He'll either make the team as the backup or get cut because he isn't healthy. Plain and simple. Hog wash.

I don't even think we would want John Abraham now considering his last injury in Atlanta. He only played 8 games and apparently had trouble learning their system.

Pack him up and ship him out. I would take as low as a 6th round pick for him.

Re: What!!!? Brunell to the Falcons?

Although I would cry if Brunell hit the field this season, I wouldn't trade him for anything less than a 4th rounder. That said, as many others have pointed out, it's all B.S. speculation.

The reason this second group has not yet posted is b/c they are still in shock that anyone, ANYONE, would think that Brunnell wasn't washed up. Once they recover from their collective shock they will be preaching the "take any offer they give us" line.

My two cents - MB is a great back-up and could easily step and start for several games w/out losing too much on offense. Contrary to (anti-MB) belief, I don't think the season is over if MB is forced to start several games.
I'm one of the never want to see MB take a sanp for us again crowd, although I don't hate him. He is a very good leader, a good mentor and a serviceable back-up to complete a game and maybe go one or two starts.

The problem with MB is, his arm is done. Other than the miracle against Dallas, he can't throw a pass with any velocity over 15-20 yards and his accuracy is nowhere near what it was 4-5 years ago. If there is no threat to stretch the field, the defense has a huge advantage and the offense is extremely limited. You can't survive on screens and 5-yard check-downs for very long.

That being said, IMO unless we get a sweet deal from Atlanta we need to hang onto MB through this season. There are no better back-up QBs on the market (Culpepper has his own accuracy issues along with health). I believe these AJC comments are complete trash. Culpepper is the most likely target by ATL because they don't have to give up anything to get him. They aren't going to pursue MB knowing they will have to give up picks.

First, I agree with you, MB is a great guy, top-notch person.
Second, (I just thought of this point) Gibbs is too loyal to let MB go anywhere unless ATL puts up a monster deal.

But....unfortunatley IMO the Jags game was the exception, not the rule since Nov 2005. Stats aren't everything, but I believe confirm what I'm saying.

Since Nov 2005
MB has passed for over 200 yards in 5 out of 18 games, and for over 250 in only 2 of 18.
He has thrown for more than 1 touchdown in 5 out of those same 18 games, but 0 touchdowns in 7 of 18.
His QB rating in 2006 was over 77 in only 4 out of 9 games.

I sat in the end-zone against the Chargers in 2005 and had a great view from as close to the QB perspective as you can get sitting in the stands. I watched on at least three separate plays where Moss had the SD corners torched on beautiful Post-Corner routes downfield, MB was looking right at him each time, but the ball needed to be thrown with velocity at about 35+ yards to the outside and he didn't make the throws because IMO he knew he couldn't get the ball there.

No way Atl. makes that move. If they offer it take it and run. He may be injury prone but he is a waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better pass rusher than anyone we currently have on the roster.

Can anyone remember the last time we had a 300 yard passing game? Was it Patrick Ramsey?
