Re: RI: Collins is the no. 2

Palmer was a project pick anyway and no real threat to even make the team. I think the hope was he would show enough to be worth sticking on the practice squad and he proved to not even be worth that.

Re: RI: Collins is the no. 2

I would just like to know one thing. Since Collins, has replaced the "prayer mongering" Brunell, does that mean Joe2 and Collins are attending Choir practice together now?

Apparently, you are not up to speed on the usual BS as to why Brunell was still the starter last season? To answer your question, religion has nothing to do with any of it. Many people here did not seem to understand that.

What an incredibly inane statement. For the last two years WE HAVE BEEN DEVELOPING CAMPBELL. In case you forgot, we drafted him in 2005. Although I haven't looked back, I'm betting you were one who blasted the pick b/c it meant that Gibbs was gonna let your boy Patrick go.

As for drafting developmental QB's - since 2000 we have drafted the following QB's:

2000 - Todd Husak (6th Round)
2001 - Sage Rosenfels (4th Round)
2002 - Patrick Ramsey (1st Round)
2003 - Gibram Hamdan (7th Round)
2005 - Jason Campbell (1st Round)
2007 - Jordan Palmer (6th Round)

The Skins consistently pick up young QB's in hopes one will develop. Throw in Casey Bramlett and that's a lot of young developmental QB's. The fact that they did not pan is not entirely Gibbs fault. The QB position is almost impossible to hit on. Take a look at this: NFL Draft History: Full Draft - by Position

In the year 2000, six QB's were chosen before Tom Brady including such notables as Giovanni Carmazzi, Chris Redman and Tee Martin.

Take a look at the classes of:
2001 (Michael Vick's year) - 11 QB's chosen, one current starter (two including Vick - who would be a starter but for, well you know...)
2002 (Ramsey, Harrington, Carr): 15 QB's chosen - one starter (David Garrard).
2003: (Carson Palmer): 13 QB's chosen - two starters (R. Grossman) and some second tier guys (Leftwich, Boller, Simms)
2004 (Manning, Rivers, Rothlesberger): 17 QB's chosen, 4 starters (M. Schaub - starting for a team that DIDNT DRAFT HIM).

Of the 56 QB's choosen between 2001-2004, how many of the non-starters are even in the NFL? My rough estimate based on name recognition is about 10 with most of those from the more recent drafts. How many of the non-starters are actually back-ups for the teams that originally drafted them?? The only ones that I saw were Feeley and Chris Simms. There may be a couple more.

From 2002 to present we have had six developmental QB's (including Bramlett and Hamdan). Of which one is the current starter - which looks to me to be pretty much in line with the NFL ratio.

To say that we "should have addressed it in the draft a long time ago" ignores reality and is simply wrong.

BTW: Here are Beathard's QB's (78-89) with the Skins -
1981 - Tom Flick, 4th Round
1982 - Bob Holly, 11th Round
1983 - Babe Laufenberg, 6th Round
1984 - Jay Schroeder, 3rd Round
1986 - Mark Rypien, 4th Round
1988 - Stan Humphries, 6th round

Three starters, a career backup and two no-names. Pretty good odds and clearly way above the norm.

Gibbs acts as if the world will come to an end if a rookie QB gets some much needed experience in the pre-season, that little peek in the pre-season could provide valuable info on needs come next draft, and whether or not Palmer has real potential, or just a successful big brother.
Did you watch the last half of the 4th preseason game?? Did you need to see more? He had a friggin month to prepare, it was his big chance and he f'ing stunk up the joint. AND it was pretty clear that his perfomance wasn't out of character for him - show me one report !ONE REPORT! that indicated he was solid practice squad material based on his training camp perfomance. EVERYTHING I read seemed to indicate that his performance in the preseason game was pretty much on par with his play in practice. What? we should take time/reps from QB's who may actually be required to play for us so that the guy who hasn't done anything to show differently can confirm his scrubbiness??

You only need to smell sh** to know what it is. You don't need to touch it and taste it too. I guess I'll go with the coach who won three superbowls with three different QB's when it comes to the analysis of an individual QB's potential.

Re: RI: Collins is the no. 2

i think we could possibly sitting on one of the worst QB situations in the league and most of it is because we keep hanging on to this bum collins.

Re: RI: Collins is the no. 2

From just a back up consideration and off the top of my head - I would take our back-ups over any of the following teams:

Cleveland
Oakland
Miami
Baltimore
Jacksonville
Seattle
Kansas City
Tampa
Atlanta
Minnesota
Detroit
New York Giants

While that still is in the bottom half, I don't know all the back-ups throughout the league and would bet their are a couplle more teams I could add to this list.

Re: RI: Collins is the no. 2

So tell me, if you could switch our back-ups with any teams who would they be?
Not the specific QB's but the TEAMS and back-ups ONLY!

I'll add Indy to that list. Unless there's something about Jim Sorgi we're just not seeing

In my opinion, I don't like it, but what do I know. I still think MB is a better option AFTER JC.

Re: RI: Collins is the no. 2

I think much more important is to have depth on the O-Line. With 5 linemen versus just 1 QB on the field at any time, you're 5 times more likely to see a starting lineman go down. We need to make sure we have depth on the line to protect Campbell and not worry about Collins or Brunell.

And I think we've done a really good job building depth on the line.

What is a long time ago? In 2004, the first year of Gibbs' second tenure? That Year we had Hamdan and Ramsey on the squad and had just aquired Brunnell. We should have drafted another QB? Then, in 2005 and as you suggest,HE DRAFTS A QB. We should've drafted two? The developmental QB on the squad turned out to be Ramsey who netted us a sixth rounder. (Not bad bargain for a third stringer - essentially the Jets paid the going rate for what is now a short term starter (T. Green)).

So in 2005 with two young QB's and Brunnell we should've drafted another? Makes sense to me.

Palmer is the one player??? NO Palmer is the SECOND player, the FIRST was Campbell. (Dear God can you be more obtuse?). And while your right, Campbell hasn't proven anything - He has better press than Ramsey did at this stage and seems to be progressing well (something Ramsey never did and still hasn't done- progress). So in 4 years, it appears that Gibbs hit on one of his two QB choices. Well above league average.

I have never argued that Gibbs is a great "personnel guy". I think he can recognize and coach talent. Would I have made the same choices he has made in his second tenure here - probably not. And, although he may have intially wanted to get rid of Theisman - he didn't and he easily could have if he had been truly unhappy with his play. Theisman gained Gibbs confidence and Gibbs returned Theisman's work with loyalty - even when the fans were calling for Schroeder. And though he didn't draft D. Williams, Gibbs was the driving force in getting him into DC and chose him over Schroeder when push came to shove.

Undoubtedly, Gibbs overpaid for Brunnell - but at the time we were not the only suitor for his services. Certainly Miami was interested in him. IMO, Gibbs knows he overpaid and would like to have another shot at the deal. (He made a comment later in the year that there was a learning curve on player aquisition in the FA period and he would like to do some things differently).

And we may just get lucky and find a diamond in the ruff, but to continue with the likes of Brunell and Collins is a big waste of time.
I am not gonna get into the Brunnell Bashing fight with you. Hate all you want, it just demonstrates the true basis of your position. As for "getting a youngster in", we did three - Palmer, Bramlett and the Maryland QB (I forget his name). None of them were NFL quality (as demonstrated by the lack of interest from other teams). We may get lucky and find someone - but it wasn't anybody we looked at this year. We will probably try again next year. Goes on all over the league. Keeping both Brunnell and Collins doesn't seem like the brightest thing in the world to me either. BUT - I am not aware of the cap ramifications of cutting Brunnell and that may be playing into it.

While I am not certain, I believe Brunnell's lifetime win percentage is pretty much on the plus side.

Yes it's hard to evaluate a QB from college to the NFL, that is why you have to take more than 1 shot at doing so for the backup QB position ala BB.

And by the way the verdict is still way out on whether or not Campbell can play in this league, he's proven nothing.
Why are you picking a fight where we don't disagree? Beathard had a phenomenal record - I would imagine that it is close to unmatched (perhaps Ron Wolfe).

As for taking "more than 1 shot", Beathard did not pick a QB until his third year with the Skins and then chose six in eight years (Oh wait, that's what the Skins have done in the last eight years). Again I again point out that Gibbs has picked two QB's in four years.

The Skins record on QB picks in the last eight years is, again, about average maybe better, 1 in six was a bonified starter (or appears to be) and two back ups that have moved on to other teams (Rosenfels, Ramsey).

And while the verdict IS still out on Campbell. I will bet you $100.00 that, barring injury, he puts together a better season than Ramsey ever had for any of his three teams.

Re: RI: Collins is the no. 2

I think what this boils down to is offiss' not so secret man crush on Patrick Ramsey.

JR, I think you've presented a well thought out and rational argument and all offiss can do at this point is revert to name calling and Brunell bashing. C'mon offiss, step it up son! It's the end of the first quarter and the score is:

Re: RI: Collins is the no. 2

I don't think it matters who the #2 is. Mark and Todd are both vets that can throw the ball to the HB every down at least. We should be good for this year, but we should really focus on getting a young QB in the off season. Both the our backups will be collecting Social Security soon, so they won't last too much longer. It feels like we are driving a car and the gas gauge reads "empty", but we know we can get 3-4 miles on it still. Wow.....that didn't make much sense.
