Colt Brennan

What I find intriguing is the selection of Colt Brennan and it is felt by some that he is the hands down better fit, with some strength and conditioning improvements, for Zorn's offense than is Jason Campbell. He has a lightning quick release, excellent footwork, and is super accurate. (He is actually even more accurate moving out of the pocket while moving) While he may not be able to throw 70 yards or even have half of the athletic ability Campbell has...he is a feisty competitor and super confident (borderline cocky)...needed attributes of an NFL QB. The offense will be quick hitting, hard to figure out, and most definitely will not be an offense to sit on a lead. Zorn's offense is built to simply score touchdowns, not field goals on every possession regardless of field position. I hope Jason is the starter for many years to come, however, I have gut feeling that Colt Brennan will be the Redskins starter in a few years and will seriously push Jason Campbell either into being a better QB or out of the starting job. What do yall think.

You should have stopped with what I bolded for you. One thing JC is not nor will he ever be is a former felon.
Brennan is merely this year's Sage Rosenfels.

Re: Colt Brennan

Colt is a better fit for the offense and I do believe that he will be the unquestioned quarterback of the skins in the near future. Remember JC was not picked by Zorn and Colt is. I believe that Zorn wants his own guy to run his offense.

Re: Colt Brennan

I do not mean to sound rude, but I am simply amazed by how much hype there is surrounding this 6th round pick. He's small, he has a checkered past, and he looked less than impressive at the Senior Bowl. I hope he turns out to be a Pro Bowl QB, but there is a reason why all 32 teams passed on him in the first five rounds of the draft.

Agreed. The kid is a 6th round rookie draft pick at quarterback, who's not even expected to be a starter in this league at all, and I've already seen people annointing him the next Tom Brady. What exactly have you seen that suggests he will be the future starter for this team and not Jason Campbell?

Re: Colt Brennan

A quarterback taken in the sixth round is viewed as a potential second stringer, nothing more. That being said, I like Brennan's confidence and overall passion for the game, and I also like the fact that Zorn identified him as someone he wants to coach.

With the right supervision I believe he will bloom into a fine backup quarterback.

first, i think Brennen has minimum talent. but this logic is flawed. wasn't Brady a 6th rounder?

His recent surgery didn't any, I'm sure.

Re: Colt Brennan

To be fair, he was being talked about as a third round pick not so long ago. He had two bad games which dropped his stock - one in which he was severely over matched, the other in which he was injured - but he has quite a pedigree as far as sixth round picks go. He is the all-time NCAA TD leader, which is no small accomplishment.

Re: Colt Brennan

It's cool that some are excited about Brennan but let's chill just a bit and wait until we see how he looks in live action in the NFL.

I think he's a bit of a project and will need some serious coaching up at the pro level before he's really ready to see serious action.

Until then let's hope JC continues to develop and never gives the coaches a reason to turn to Brennan.

I think in the back of a lot of minds that is what people are thinking, or hoping. Of coarse to believe he would be another Montana is quite hard right now and probably very unrealistic, but stranger things have happened, Montana 3rd rd, Brady 6th, and Brady couldn't start for his college team, so where he was drafted as far as I am concerned is irrelevant, what he can do on the field is, and we have a lot of time to find that out.

The level of competition has been a big concern, not so much for myself, he played against teams comparable to his own, his team couldn't handle a big time team, but that doesn't mean Colt couldn't if he had players of equal talent or there abouts on his team. The bottom line is this we used a 6th rd pick on this kid, how can you go wrong under those circumstances? We gave up a heck of a lot more for Campbell and still after 3 seasons we wait and wonder?
You are correct, comparing him to a "Montana" in any shape or form is ludicrous.

Facts are facts and nothing can change them. And the fact is Brennan was a very good player in a very bad conference. Say what you will about his accomplishments at Hawaii, but the reality is that Colt Brennan excelled in a conference that is more like a "farm league" for division 1. He was a "big fish in a small pond". But now he is being thrown into the deep end and he is just another fish. Unless it is an offensive lineman, the WAC (aka Weak-Ass-Conference) is known historically for producing standout players at that level, but once they get to the pro's, they struggle tremendously. See Timmy Chang. The proof is in the pudding, Brennan and Hawaii were undefeated until they played a REAL division 1 team, Georgia, in the Sugar Bowl and the Bulldogs EMBARASSED the Rainbow Warriors 41-10.

The biggest fact is the type of offense that June Jones ran at Hawaii, the "run and shoot", where traditionally you could put almost any old QB in the pocket and he will put up impressive numbers. But the run and shoot has not been used in the NFL since the Houston Oilers of the 90's. For this fact, Brennan is a project type player. He will have to re-learn the game from a new perspective against the best players in the world. He has a long road to travel. I seriously doubt that Brennan even makes through training camp, and I predict that he will be cut before the regular season.

Jason Campbell is the best option that give the Redskins the best opportunity to win. I don't think Brennan will even present a viable challenge to Campbell.

Nothing against Brennan, but I look at the school, conference and offense he came from, and none of them compare to anything he will see at the pro level.

I was shocked to see the 'Skins take him in the 6th round. I would have bet that he would have gone undrafted and you could have signed him as a UDFA and saved some money.

Wait, my logic was flawed?

Tom Brady was a 6th round pick. Tom Brady is a HoF quarterback. Colt Brennan was a 6th round pick. Therefore Colt Brennan is going ot be a HoF QB?

I didn't say it was impossible for Colt to be a good or even great QB. But let's be real, it's rather unlikely. For every Tom Brady there are hundreds of wash outs.

Re: Colt Brennan
