There is nothing blasphemous about calling Brunell Touchdown Jesus, in fact many people including myself, find it amusing. Find something else to bitch at me about.

As I mentioned before, I am a Christian and there is no negativity towards my faith in the nickname.

Are you really this touchy? You need a few two-a-days.
Fine. Whatever. Moving on

Re: Brunell to Birds?

If we can get a first day pick for Brunell, then this is a no brainer.

If we can't then it's just not worth it.

Brunell should be traded if Collins is doing good now ,maybe guys like Texans would use a nice back up or any team that needs a back up

I mean seriously why did we draft a QB ?.I say trade Brunell we didn't was a pick on Palmer for nothing , and also we have collins doing good now and trading for a first day pick can help us.

i say trade collins, keep brunell. brunell might be able to pull 1-2 games out of his ass if needed, i dont see forsee collins making any impact at all if called upon.

Re: Brunell to Birds?

I think we need to have a young quarterback to develop. Putting Palmer on the practice squad exposes him to other teams. It would be better, I think, to make him the number three quarterback and give him the focus and attention needed to get him ready to step in if he has to.

Mark Brunell could really make a difference to the quarterback strapped Falcons and I would think that would be of interest to Mark to be in that situation. Here all he gets is the ridiculous, unwarranted, pitiful antipathy of fans looking for a scapegoat. He deserves far better. His arm strength is less than it was and though I think he is still a capable player, who has made for some special memories for any true Redskin fans, the sea tide has shifted here in DC and I think it would help him to move on.

Todd Collins on the other hand has been working in this system for years on end, and is a very capable backup. He deserves a shot to be the number two quarterback, and I think at this point he is the second best quarterback on the roster for a team using the Saunders system.

Brunell will not go anywhere this season.

And when he makes the Superbowl appearance you'll be happy too!

People had written off Doug Williams before he won Superbowl MVP!!!

Why bother when he's practice squad material at best??

Re: Brunell to Birds?

With the amount of time Campbell has been getting - up until this injury anyway - there really isn't enough time in a game for a fourth quarterback like Palmer. Collins and Brunell need the reps too.

If anyone should understand the hesitant nature of Joe Gibbs with rookie quarterbacks, it should be Redskins fans. No one should be surprised if Palmer doesn't get a chance to line up behind center during exhibition play.

Re: Brunell to Birds?

Does everyone here understand that we didn't draft CARSON PALMER? With some of these posts you'd think we did. Brunnel sucks. As a starter. As a back up, he's slightly above average. Why are we placing so much emphasis on getting our rookie QB from a no name school who played against no named talent on our gameday roster in place of a veteran NFL quarterback who knows how to manage games and not turn the ball over? Anyone?

Good post, my thoughts exactly.

Palmer isn't even going to make the active roster, he's practice squad material at best and believe me, nobody is going to be jumping at the chance to snatch him away.

Re: Brunell to Birds?

Why is everyone speculating that either Brunell or Collins are going anywhere? Especially when you have 2 coaches who will back either one as they descend into the fiery pits of hell (no play on religion, just an extreme exaggeration).

Is it a possibility that Brunell goes anywhere? Maybe, but 99.5% doubtful he's wearing anything but a Skins jersey. Collins even more doubtful now that he's nothing but a 36 year old system QB. And Jordan Palmer is nowhere near ready to be a 3rd string QB...he was drafted to sit on the practice squad this year and maybe next to replace whichever old fart retires first.
