Colt Brennan

Why do you think the Skins drafted Brennan? Do they see him as a guy who could be a legit starter in a few years? Or is he just a career 3rd stringer?

I can't see them drafting him thinking he would someday be the starter since Campbell is supposedly the "future".

Re: Colt Brennan

They took him because he is the epitome of risk vs. reward. We invest very little to obtain him, and he has a chance of being a very good player in this league. I think we've learned it's very important to have two good quarterbacks in today's NFL, and that's what they were thinking.

Re: Colt Brennan

He played in a similar style offense under June Jones in Hawaii. With Brunell gone and Collins nearing the end of his career, we needed another backup QB. Brennan was a projected early round pick for much of his senior year, and slipped all the way to the 6th round.

I think we addressed a need (BACKUP QB, not eventual starter), and got a good value in doing so.

There will not be an open QB competition in camp next season, so everyone can just forget about it.

I think you're trying to use reverse psychology with the topic of this thread, but I'll give a legitimate opinion anyway. I believe he was drafted because Zorn felt it was a good value to get Brennan in the sixth round.

No need to overthink things... I am just curious to hear others opinions.

I personally think it is ridiculous for anyone to think Colt could produce now.

Re: Colt Brennan

I think colt brennan is the "hasselbeck" for the redskins. Sit on the bench, learn from zorn, watch the starter and eventually will become the starter. Remember Campbell has not recieved his extension yet

Re: Colt Brennan

Well at this point it really doesn't mater why we drafted him. They're gonna keep the douche they call Campbell at QB and we'll play from there. Now Campbell isn't the reason we lost last night. The line once again was horrible, but he is the reason why my voice is soar from screaming move out the pocket and throw the damn ball away. He hangs on the ball much to long for my taste. He also doesn't have much motivation skills on the sideline either. When a team is down or making a comeback you see the Bradys or Farves on the sideline walking the bench back and forth to get his team hyped. Every cut to Jason on the sideline i see him on the bench with very little excitement.

Re: Colt Brennan

You draft 6th round QB's to learn and be the backup. If the QB learns enough he MAY someday get a shot at playing.

Re: Colt Brennan

I'm just laughing at all you Colt haters. One day soon he'll prove you wrong. The same people who protect JC are the ones who say not to bench Brunell for JC. So its amazing how it works. JC is only buying his time. Theres no extension yet nor will there be before they give more of a work load to Colt to see how he does.

Plenty of us who don't feel it's Colt time yet, or that his time may not ever come with the Redskins are not haters. I'm happy he's on our team. He's young. He showed this summer that he has talent, but still has room to improve. I just think that right now campbell gives us the better chance to win. Just like there was a time when Brunell gave us the best chance. This notion that we want some players to start over others must mean we hate those other players is asinine. Heck, look at my screen name. You'd think I want Smoot starting every game. Far from it, he's best suited as a nickel back, maybe even a dime back depending on the talent ahead of him. I don't want him starting, but I certainly don't hate him.

You don't have to hate Colt to think JC is the right QB for the Skins right NOW. In a few years who knows???

He is Babe Laufenberg.....
Beautiful preseason and a loyal fan base calling for his number to be called. Yet, he won't throw a regular season TD unless we have some serious injuries.

I hope he is the next Tony Romo. They have the same build and they both have an ability to make plays. If JC is not the guy then, I hope Colt is.
