Brunell is not done here in Washington. In relief he'll do very well. Falcons will probably field Culpepper if he's healthy or see if Jake Plummer will come to ATL.

Were you trying to say that Gibbs crushed Ramsey's Igloo?

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

If the Redskins can dump Brunnel's salary and cap hit and get a decent draft pick in return, dump his ass. I do not want to see Dink and Dunk anymore.

We should already have an experienced younger QB behind Campbell but we have been married to a washed up, overpaid loser in Brunell, we just had to have Collins as well last season who is absolutly pathetic, which also detracted from a younger talent learning as a backup.

This notion that we are in trouble if we let Brunell go is a joke, the fact is we are in trouble until we let him go! Sooner or later Gibbs has to cut the cord with this guy and realize that there are people on this planet who can play QB besides his beloved Brunell. If Campbell goes down, all of a sudden Brunell is going to lead us to the promised land? He's proven otherwise, I would much rather have an inexperienced QB in there who has the possiblity of becoming a winner, rather than a proven loser like Brunell. Brunell has had more than his fair share of opportunities to lead this team and has been horrible, time to move on!

I guarantee you that Brunell would be far better than any other QB we have on the current depth chart should JC get hurt. To say otherwise is just incorrect. I really think he'd be fine and able to maintain whatever JC started, assuming JC starts something good. The jury is still out.

He's a killer in the library. But with a pass rush, he completely loses his mind.

If book smarts make you a smart QB, I'm all set with my THREE degrees.

I'll step up and take the backup position so we can stop arguing.

I assume you meant 2 degrees, not majors.
To me, a football player in a large NCAA school getting a degree doesn't float with me too well. Sure some are legit, but more often than not these players have communication or kinesiology as a major, and a lot of grades are given to them because of their role as a vital football player and the amount of time that requires. Again, not all do that, but you never know who does.

Ramsey was a double major, Accouting and Finance.

He was also named to the Conference USA Commissioner's honor roll 5 times.

When it came to school he was no joke, Tulane is a good school too.

His football IQ might be lacking, but off the field he seems pretty sharp.

Good post.
It proves his school literacy.

Good for him. Maybe he can work in our front office, but all of those awards don't score TDs.

And I can guarantee you that every teacher I had at Tulane put more pressure on football players to perform. I had 2 classes that had football players in them while I was there and in one class I witnessed a teacher rant against football players missing class for any reason relating to football because they "aren't going to the NFL." At the very least the football players were held to the same standard as the rest of us.

I knew a couple guys on the team, they certainly didn't get a free pass. And, on that note, they were all pretty damn bright. If you're recruited by TU you have to have the grades to go there. It doesn't have a reputation for being the "Harvard of the South" for no reason.

Finally, from personal experience, I have no idea how Pat double majored. I was killing myself trying to keep up with 12 credits there. I came away with great grades, but I worked as hard as I ever have for those A's. That school is hard as hell, to double major without being an athlete is crazy, I don't see how he did it.

Good to hear a first hand experience.

Yeah I don't see how he did it either, double major AND he graduated a semester early. All that and football, and javelin?!
