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

If its a choice in Atl between MB or DC than its a no brainer, they should go after MB. He is a solid back up and can still play a bit. DC is washed up. I doubt Gibbs will let MB go but anything is possible.

I also think that Harrington will be fine in Atl. His career is judged by what he did in Det and lets face it, who has ever been successful in Det.

I wish I could take credit for "remembering" but in responding to Hess I was digging for some stats...the last 300+ yard passing game was the Jags on 10/01/2006. 329 yards. Prior to that it was Den & KC in Oct of 2005. 322 & 331 yds.

And of course, Denver and KC were both losses. Which goes to that passing yards doesn't always equal wins. We'd be wise to remember that this year when Campbell has some under 200 yards passing games while Betts and Portis churn out the yardage on the ground and lead us to wins

MB has had four 300 yard games here.

Agreed totally.

Another interesting bit of statistical info...other than the Houston and Jags games last year, with Brunell at QB we went over 100 yds rushing only once (Philly). Once JC came in defenses needed to respect his arm and couldn't stack the box, we rushed for over 100 yds in 5 out of 7 games.

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

So all of you "I want him out" screamers are comfortable with Todd Collins and Jordan Palmer if they have to fill in to save the season?

This would be a great idea for the Falcons and a HORRIBLE one for us. Having an experienced backup is important.

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

Bramlet is higher on the depth chart than Palmer. And no, i want to keep Mark.

Ooooooh...

So do we want a QB who hasn't started a game since 1997 and has 17 career TDs with 19 career INTs or an unemployed NFL Europa player or a 6th-Round rookie from the big football powehouse UTEP to take over for Campbell if something happens? :cheeky-sm

I wouldn't lump Mark Brunell and Jeff Garcia in the same pile.

It probably was but Gibbs is so in love with Brunell that he benched the guy for his man. If he didn't bench Ramsey he would be here now as our starter but instead Gibbs crushed the guys igo and ruined him as a QB.

Ha Ha!!! Very true!

I've never been a Bruell basher, but there are plenty on this forum. I think it would be ridiculous to trade him unless we were offered the world in return. Simply no need to trade your best qualified veteran backup, a proven quarterback, when you have an umproven, essentially nothing more than a rookie quarterback as your starter in Jason Campbell. If JC struggles mightily or gets hurt, Mark Brunell is the only chance this team has to go anywhere.
