Colt getting some time at #2?

I'm trying to stir things up a little for some Colt talk of course. It looks like Zorn likes him some Colt and is making some excuses to get some more live gametime looks at him. He might be w/ the 2nd team w/ some starters rather than the 3rd team, otherwise known as the ones who will be cut. Who knows...#2 QB? Crazier things have happened. Go ahead have at it.

Zorn's QB Plan; Strictly Unrestricted

After practice Jim Zorn talked a bit about his quarterback plan for Saturday and said that he might rotate Todd Collins and Colt Brennan after Jason Campbell gets his plays in. He said it would depend on the situation, but he'd like to get Brennan some two-minute work, since, he said, after a couple of games he won't have the opportunity to see Brennan play again for a year. So don't be surprised if Brennan comes in before Collins.
As for the Redskins' big preseason game Aug. 16 against the suddenly-Favred New York Jets, Zorn said he fully expects to see Brett Favre play a bit that night in East Rutherford.

Re: Colt getting some time at #2?

I'm eager to see what Colt can do against 2nd stringers. I'm impressed with what I've seen thus far, but I have yet to conclude that he's even worthy of a roster spot (gasp....choke....gasp).

Ugh. Come on now, stop trying to make something out of nothing.

Zorn specifically said why he's doing it.

It is a slow day and i am little bored. It's not completely far fetched though, even though who knows what will happen from here on out. Who knows if Collins improves in this system or if Colt bombs from here on out?

Re: Colt getting some time at #2?

Zorn pretty much explains the reasoning for bringing him in before Collins. The last few preseason games we're pretty much only going to see JC and Collins... since they are the clear #1 and #2.

Just stop with the Colt madness.

Yeah, we do not want to discuss your BF, JGisLordOfTheRings.


Collins will be #2 this year (pun intended? ) but I hope the long-term plan is to make Colt Jason's backup in the future.

I can't see Todd staying more than one more year after this year.

Unless he retires why would TC not be back?

I wanna see as much of Colt as possible in the pre season for the same reason Zorn does...He ain't playin' again til next season!

A few more hits and he may need hip replacements.

I think Campbell's health will determine how long Collins plays (lasts).

Todd needs to step up and learn the system better too, because he was the least impressive of the QBs against the Colts.

Re: Colt getting some time at #2?

Collins will be 37 this year. Gotta think he has this year and one more maybe left in him. After that Colt should be ready to be #2. But who knows, maybe he'll be so awesome someone will offer a second or third rounder for him next year (jk).

Re: Colt getting some time at #2?

TC signed what was essentially a 3 year deal and it was a nice payday for him. Yeah he's older but he's pretty fresh considering how little he's played. I'd agree that 2 years is probably realistic, but I'd say there's a decent shot he'll hang on for 3 years. Guess it also depends on how he picks up the offense and how that guy behind him develops.

Re: Colt getting some time at #2?

Not that I have anything against Brennan, but I think Zorn wants to see him play against some better players and see how he pans out. He's going to need development, but he has talent and would be a good back up and potential starter in the future (or trade bait).

So you're hoping that our STARTING quarterback gets injured? I hope you're joking.
