Ugh I think Colt Brennan is overrated, we don't need people pining for him to start.

Re: Redskins Sign QB Colt Brennan

"The former Hawaii quarterback had minor hip surgery to repair the labrum on April 8. Though some thought he might have to start camp on the physically unable to perform list, Brennan made a quick recovery. Through weight lifting, he is 220 pounds."

The fact that he's not only clear to play but also made NFL playing weight is really good news. However I've seen a good amount of quarterbacks bulk up during the offseason and then lose a lot of that weight during the season. I think CP might be an example of this as well. Either way I'm glad to see that Brennan has growth potential.

Re: Redskins Sign QB Colt Brennan

I personally think this a great signing for our 3rd qb. I don't want to see him "dethrone" Campbell, but I think he could be a valuable backup, and possibly a great signing in the years to come.

That being said, let the hall of fame career start!

It was an annual diving operation. There are hundreds of underwater cables in the Bering Sea and the ice flows in the winter will tend to crush some cables. So each summer we would transit to the Bering Sea (by ship) and conduct diving operations to fix damaged cables.

I have been around the world 3 times and Alaska is still the most breathtakingly beautiful place I have seen. Even after being in Hawaii. But, just like that show, the weather can turn from pretty to deadly in a matter of minutes.

Re: Redskins Sign QB Colt Brennan

There's a lot of hoopla in this thread for a guy who figures to be our #3 QB. Um, it's the #3 QB, who cares?

Campbell's our guy and Collins gives you a real good backup situation. That's all we should care about.

If we're going to talk about Colt Brennan, it should be from the perspective of one day developing him into a decent backup for when Collins is gone. Doesn't matter if you think he's overrated now, or if he's got a lot of potential now, or whatever. He's a project and someone who will never put on a helmet during gameday in 2008.

I was being a jackass with that question, but that's actually pretty cool, Sandtrap.

Very true. Hell, this guy isn't even a lock to make the team so let's at least wait and see if he does that.

There's just something about backup QB hype in Washington. It seems that people are always enamored with the guy on the bench.

If professional football has showed us anything, its that the bench is EXTREMELY important. We don't have to look far to see success there. Doug Williams was a bench player, and Rypien was his bench player. Both won us a super bowl. Technically Campbell was a bench player even though the writing was on the wall there. That being said, I don't think anyone is really saying to dump campbell and give Brennan the reigns. I personally would hate to see that. But with Collins one year closer to retirement, we need a good young 3rd qb. Brennan is a PERFECT fit in my mind cause he's likely THE most underrated young QB out the there. I'm excited about our future. I hope that is the take of all the Brennan / Skins fans out there.

One more thing, I am not sold on Collins being a great backup for us. He was a great fit for Saunders offense, now that Saunders left, does Collins noodle arm have what it takes in Zorn's offense? I am not sure.

Yeah, they eventually won us a super bowl after spending quite a bit of time on the bench.

It's OK to think about Colt's future, that's a good approach. But for this season, he figures to be our #3. We've got much more pressing and immediate concerns and interests - there's not much sense in talking about what he could do for us 3-5 years from now.

As for concerns about Collins, heck you could say the same about Campbell. Who knows how these guys are going to jive with Zorn? One would figure JC will be OK if given enough of a chance; he's got the arm, the legs, and some college WCO experience. But in the end, who knows?

I just can't wait for live football action. I'm ready to see it start clicking!

Re: Redskins Sign QB Colt Brennan

I've never understood complaints about Collins' arm strength. He doesn't have a cannon but it's certainly strong enough to make all the throws he needs to make. And in a west coast offense that stresses shorter throws he should definitely be ok.
