What!!!?

Falcons could add Culpepper or Brunell?
If the Falcons look to add another experienced quarterback to their roster, Daunte Culpepper was recently released by the Dolphins. He is battling back from a severe knee injury but is only two seasons removed from throwing for 4,717 yards and 39 touchdowns. Another veteran to watch through training camp is the Washington Redskins' Mark Brunell, who is set to backup Jason Campbell. Brunell played for Falcons coach Bobby Petrino with the Jacksonville Jaguars and threw a career-high 23 touchdown passes in 2005 with the Redskins, when working with Bill Musgrave, who is now the Falcons quarterbacks coach. -- Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Re: What!!!?

Unless we desperately need the cap room or he's not 100%, I don't see this happening at all.

Just a FYI I'm editing the thread title, let's try to be a little more descriptive than "What!!!?"

Re: What!!!?

Last time i checked, he wasnt for sale.

When shoddy reporters are trying to speculate, they look at new coaches resumes. They take a look at players that coaches have worked with before and jump to crazy conclusions.

That's complete fiction.

exactly. HE coached brunell and brunell is a backup so in this reporter's mind that means brunell is on the short list to head on out to atlanta. Great.

I understand we need quality depth but if there was a possibility that we could unburden ourselves of that massive contract, then we need to at least look into it. That said, I am one of the 3 people who don't think Joey Harrington is washed up so I don't expect anything of this nature to happen.

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

This is all simply speculation from the perspective of which QB would make logical sense for the Falcons to pursue. It does not factor in the low (nill) likelihood of Brunell being traded by Washington.

It's an Atlanta paper just throwing out an idea, nothing more. Atlanta journalists know less about the Washington Redskins than just about every fan on this board.

Until I see a murmur about this appearing on JLC's Redskins Insider, I'm discounting it as complete bunk.

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

Absolute speculation. Brunell just (in February) restructured his contract to lower his base salary, but got him some scratch upfront. Unless the Falcons want to compensate that outlay with some draft picks, he's staying on the team.

And that's just from a fiscal perspective. Clearly, this coaching staff has a fondness for Brunell, like his ability, love his mentoring, and want him here. To give that up would take a sweet deal.

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

Naw. I think there is a strong "Brunnell is a GREAT back-up" group amongst us warpathers (I being one of them). I also think there is also a strong "I hate Brunnell and never want to see him take a snap for us again" group. 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.

At the same time, given his age, if we can get some decent picks (multiple with one of them no less than a 3rd) THEN deal him. As Brud said, given the benefit he gives us this year and possibly next, to give him up for anything less than a very sweet deal is just not worth it.

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

nothing to get excited about, just a journalist throwing out some ideas. But it's not that out of the question, just a while back we were debating who the skins would cut, MB or Collins?

What if they offered a 3rd or higher? A d-lineman?
I agree that it would take a sweet deal for JOe & co. to let him go, but if they are confident in Collins as the #2, it could happen.

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

It would be a smart move for the Falcons. They are obviously, (potentially) in real trouble for a starting QB. Great leader. Decent QB. Maybe good, with good protection.
With Gibb's affililiation with Atlanta.........who knows? You know MB would MUCH rather start in the ATL, than ride the pine in DC. For the right deal.......??????

Joe, your post beat mine to the board, but the sentiment is the same here. Good breakdown of the wp's brunell camps.
I can't think of anyone they might give up from their d-line, but if they had an end that could play in GW's rotation, it would make sense.

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

Send him away. We'll get some compensation for him, we can keep Todd Collins (if Campbell goes down our season is more or less done anyways.) for that Veteran who understands the system and can help Jason.

Give him away, no. For a few draft picks, enjoy!

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

Atlanta is potentially (though less likely now considering the latest developments) a team we'll be battling with for a wild card spot. It's a shame what's happening to that organization right now (By the way, Jimmy Williams arrested for marijuana possession), however, it's not our business to try to help them out of this mess. Unless they're sending us DeAngelo Hall or Jamaal Anderson.

That being said, they can have Todd Collins

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

As critical as I've been of Brunell, I would be really nervous if Jason get's nicked up for a few games and we have to turn to Collins.
