Re: What does the Zorn hiring mean for Todd Collins?

I think Collins moves on.. He's a system QB, and a backup one at that. Yes he played great down the stretch for us, but I never thought of him as a 16 game starter. I think we bring in Trent Dilfer as a backup and draft a WCO QB in the late rounds. It probably would have been a good idea to keep Jordan Palmer on the practice squad, huh?

Chad Henne or Joe Flacco would work out well here. We will need a veteran backup to sign. I'll come up with a list of potential names.

Re: What does the Zorn hiring mean for Todd Collins?

KFFL - 2008 NFL Free Agents

Grossman
Culpepper
Josh McCown
Quinn Gray
Ken Dorsey
Ryan Fitzpatrick
Cleo Lemon
Jared Lorenzen
Jamie Martin

umm...disgusting. I'd see if Brunell would play one more season at league minimum. Unless Culpepper would play for beans as opposed to retire?

Of course, there are some competant names on this list:

Billy Volek
Craig Nall

Re: What does the Zorn hiring mean for Todd Collins?

I think Brunell is gone and it's over 50% chance that Collins stays. St. Louis is the only place that I can see truly making an offer for him. And from what I hear they might not be too active in free agency as they figure out their ownership situation. Of course, TC isn't likely to break the bank so he may be ok.

IMO it is very important to try and have as little as possible of a drop off when the back-up has to play. When Ben R. gets hurt Batch comes in and plays just as good if not better. This year when JC went down Collins came in and played better and DID NOT turn the ball over. When Alex Smith got hurt Dilfer came in and started a few games. We all know Smith is not a very good NFL QB. I still can't figure out why SF took him with the #1 pick. But when Dilfer came in he played probably worse than Smith. I think I remember Gus coming in a throwing 5 ints and fumbling a game away. If I'm Redskins mgt I'm doing everything I can to keep Collins here.

Tim Rattay and Tim Hasselback in AZ are both FA. I like the fatass Lorenzen for the Freak-Show aspect he brings as well. He could take a bowling ball in the gut at halftime.

I think there is a decent chance Collins stays. My prediction is that Campbell will not be the Skins starter at the end of the 2009 season.

Re: What does the Zorn hiring mean for Todd Collins?

Would any of you take a chance on Chris Simms or try to lure Jake Plummer out of retirement?

I wouldn't, just wondering if anyone else would

They both seem like they would piss and moan if they didn't get to be the starter. And with Simms, you'd have his old man pissing and moaning in harmony.

I believe Campbell is the guy. We need a backup that is willing to accept his fate. Sort of the way Mark Brunell was this last year.

Re: What does the Zorn hiring mean for Todd Collins?

Why do the Skins never have talent they developed at key back-up positions like QB. Instead if Collins leaves they have to scrape around the bottom of the barrel for one of the most important positions on the team.

There's really not a whole lot of reason to think Simms is capable of playing QB in the NFL. He was pretty mediocre in 2005, and hasn't been healthy since. I wouldn't go there.

Plummer is pretty awful too. I would rather try to re-sign Brunell, or spend 1 million a year on Billy Volek.

Re: What does the Zorn hiring mean for Todd Collins?

Our QB depth last year probably saved the season. So I wouldn't say we never have quality depth there.
