I wouldn't quite say that. If Brennan lit it up this preseason and looked like he definitely deserved to be the #2 I think the staff would give it to him. You have to remember a certain safety that we signed in the '06 offseason who absolutely sucked and was benched in the middle of the season, and demoted to like the lowest spot on the roster, even though he still had the richest contract ever signed by a safety. Just because we gave Collins a new contract doesn't mean he can't get demoted if Brennan steps up and takes the #2 spot away from him.

I'm glad he did well and I hope he continues to do well.

I think the one thing Collins has over Colt is the experience obviously. So I'd much rather see him at #2 than Colt. Regardless, of how they play in preseason. With that being said, if JC goes down(God forbid) and the season is in the toilet then Colt needs to be playing.

Zorn even said in today's press conference that Collins is still the #2 and the spot is not in danger of being overtaken.

I think that's a good idea to let the fans know from the start that he ahs no chance to ascend the depth chart because of the additional hype that would create in a town that loves its QB controversies.

I'm not debating whether Colt should be the #2 lol. I was just pointing out the inaccuracy of saying Collins has to be the #2 quarterback because he got a nice contract in the offseason.

Furthermore, I highly doubt Brennan ascends beyond the #3 spot this offseason. People are getting hyped up because he had a nice performance in his first game, when we all know what the reality of the situation was. Collins has experience over Brennan and I doubt he would play horribly enough to lose the #2 spot. Like many have pointed out Brennan has a long ways to go before he can even be called a good #2.

All last night did was more or less guarantee Colt a spot on our roster. It doesn't matter if he's #2 or #3 -- if Campbell goes down we can kiss the season goodbye. I would love to see him get some real game experience if we've either got a game won, or say games towards the end of the year don't matter for us either way. We've sealed a home playoff spot by SF or we're statistically out of the playoffs. In those situations Id like to get Colt some time.

I agree. The best player wins the position right? Tell that to GB! Hahah....I think Collins is better as a system QB and he's really not mobile enough to effectively run this offense as well as he ran AS scheme.

Maybe he shoulda gone with Al.......

Did anyone think he looked a little like Heath Shuler in uniform? wearing #5 too
Haha...I was thinking that too. At first I thought maybe the 5 would just be a mark of death. lol

That's a key point that's getting lost in all of this Colt hype.

JC is the guy we should be concerned about. Not the #3 QB.

JC was sharp and seemed to have a good grasp of the offense, granted we didn't get to see much of him but what we saw was impressive.

Good quote from Zorn on Colt:

Quote:
"He has to become a more disciplined quarterback, and not risk as much as he risked in the game," Zorn said, while praising Brennan's exuberance and flair.
He definitely made some throws last night that made me say "Wow, can't believe he even attempted that". I like the gunslinger mentality but some of those were throws that will get you benched really quick in the NFL against top competition.

I have to agree with that.

Brennan did make some phenomenal passes at Hawaii and he did make some plays which won games.

He admitted that he got lucky a couple of times last night, particularly on that throw over the middle which could have been picked. I'm sure Zorn told him he was lucky and he admitted it.

What I do like about Brennan is that he will try to learn and he will learn to be more disciplined. If he can learn and work with Zorn, he could be a great pickup.

I know from experience that he is a great leader to have on a team with the game on the line.

But, he is going to have to learn that, in the NFL, the game might be on the line earlier than you think. In some contests, the game is on the line just about every series. One major mistake and you are cooked.

He'll learn that, hopefully not the hard way.

He hates to lose, so that is a good thing anyway.
