Does it really matter?

No it doesn't! If Campbell goes down it's over. what a lousy job we have done at the backup QB position.

I don't know offiss, Collins didn't completely stink up the joint this pre-season. Worst case scenario, we've got Brunell (go ahead haters...pile on).

Why do you say that? We have two solid vets behind a young QB. Collins outplayed Brunell this preseason but it's not like Brunell played poorly.

Re: RI: Collins is the no. 2

I think either MB or TC will do a fine job in a backup roll. TC has looked better in pre-season, and Joe has said whoever played the best would earn the spot so there you have it......he has.

MB is also a proven leader and his arm looks strong and IMO can still come in and win games for you with no problem.

Hopefully we see JC progress as we think he will. I think we are in real good shape at QB!

For what's it worth, the third stringer rarely takes snaps with the first team.

I still think Brunell's name could surface in tpossible trade talks.

Re: RI: Collins is the no. 2

I feel good about the position...I am glad that Collins was named the #2. I like Brunell as a person, but if I see another roll out to the sideline and throw the ball away from him, I might just loose it.

Re: RI: Collins is the no. 2

I will agree with offiss on one matter (looks outside to see if it is raining fish). To have a third string QB making as much as the 1st and 2nd stringers combined (and that's after drastically reducing his salary!) against the cap is not a sure sign of competance. While I applaud the decision to make Collins the #2, as he clearly deserved it from his preseason performance, Brunell should be given the opportunity to compete elsewhere, and on someone else's dime.

That pretty much sums it up. No way we can justify Brunell being on the roster as a "safety valve" or "insurance"for all the money we're paying him.

This could have been a preemptive move in order to later trade Brunell without drastically affecting the depth chart.

Ha! No problem?! What if there's a pass rush, or 3rd and 8, or a 4th quarter deficit?

Re: RI: Collins is the no. 2

I wonder if this decreases Brunell's trade value on the market?

You mean like when we were down by 13 to dallas late in the 4th quater? And MB threw two long balls to SM for two quick TD's to WIN the game.....?

Re: RI: Collins is the no. 2

I am amazed at the continued bile thrown Mark Brunell's way. Do these fellow warpath members really think they can evaluate a quarterback's performance than Joe Gibbs?

With two solid backups, we are likely in better shape at that position than many NFL teams. The only real issue is that they're about the same age, we tried to address that in the draft -- it just didn't work out.

And no, the season would not be over without Campbell. Things would get tougher for sure, but certainly not impossible. Philadelphia certainly managed to survive McNabb's season-ending injury last year. Why not us?

Stop being so pessimistic...

I take it you haven't been around here very long.

Brunell is public enemy #1 to a lot of people.
