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

I feel quite comfortable with Brunell as the backup. He can't physically hold up for an entire season, but he definitely has from 0 to 3 games left in his arm and legs. Also, with him you can call any play you want so long as you remember to reverse sides with the boot action.

I agree, EARTH, it looks like Joey is the clear cut starter for the Falcons. I can see a possible trade after the season starts if Joey gets injured and the Falcons are actually winning.

Watch the game in Philly (or in Dallas or at New York or....) from last year and then I will give you a chance to re-do your post.

Not if they signed Aaron Brooks to replace him.

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

i say we hold on to brunell hes good insurance and seeing how well our late round picks have panned out these past few years (Robert McCune, anyone? which is probably what would be offered for him) thanks to our mastery in the front office it doesnt look like we would get anything back for him

He led teams to the playoffs and would be considered one of the best backups in the league (according to people who are paid to analyze the NFL).

Falcons are looking for insurance in the form an experienced backup. They are also cautious just case Joey bag of doughnuts continues to play like Jeff George. Yes, they hope Joey will work but he is unproven. Brunnell while on the down side of his career, gives you a proven NFL QB and an above average backup. That is what Atlanta is looking for...insurance. Not a an expensive starter, they still have Vick's huge cap number to deal with.

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

I say if ATL wants him,they can have him and good riddance,if JC goes down were screwed anyway cause MB sucks,isnt he coming off shoulder surgery? If MB's not here we dont have to worry about Gibbs pulling JC out of the 1st game at halftime and sticking in brunell,and if you dont think thats a possibility you havent been watching the same Gibbs that I've been watching with his major stiffy for MB,I think you people are forgetting WE WERE THE ONLY TEAM THAT WANTED HIM 3 FRICKIN YEARS AGO!!! overpaid for his sorry ass then because of Gibbs stiffy,please,please,Atlanta take him

You must be a bitter Ramsey fan...LOL...and Ramsey was pulled because he sucked balls. Evidenced by his inability to beat out a rookie with the Jets last year for the backup spot.
Brunnell while not great is the only Redskins QB that has helped us to the 2 round of the playoffs in 15 years. So he has not been a total waste.

The most important characteristic in a backup quarterback is their ability to step in seamlessly and still execute the offense. Typically the 2nd stringer comes in, and the rest of the offense is wary of him. Do you think our offense would be wary of Mark under center. You're crazy if you do. That being said, no one wants their 2nd stringer to see multiple games. So lets hope JC stays standing.

This thread sucks, because anyone that actually thought for a second we were going to make this move is delusional.

They should be fired.

Honestly, if you are paid to evaluate them and you come to this conclusion, what good are you to your organization?

Anyway, needless to say, I think you just pulled this out of your ass. Aaron Brooks' rep around the league is not good.

Offiss, how do you suggest we get a QB better than Mark Brunell this offseason and how much would you pay to compensate him?

Better QBs than Brunell are out there, but unless you want to go the Culpepper route, they are going to cost a lot more than we are paying Campbell.
