Different thread for a different time, but I would argue YES! As offenses in the league evolve a bit and incorporate more 'wildcat' type plays can you think of a better 'weapon' to have as a change up? As a QB, definitely not, but as an offensive 'weapon' I think we'd be foolish not to consider him.


Back on topic, no to Brennan. He's a backup now, was drafted to be a backup and will always be a backup. There's no reason to "see what we have" when we are still trying to get everyone on the same page with our starting offense as it is!

re: Should We Give Brennan Playing Time Now?

Why not start Collins for 1 game ? If the offense looks the same < 10 pts/game > , then so be it ,,, if however we score 27 points we will have a better idea of why we cannot score , line or qb play .

I do not advocate giving up on anybody, especially JC, as I am BIG fan of his. However, to have potential resources and not research their value completely is a poor plan.
I do think Drew Bledsoe would agree with you, especially on the Tom Brady potentially starting issue

I would argue yes as well, but another time.

Brennan: We are trying to find out what we have in JC. He needs all the snaps he can get. It's not like he's a 5-6 year starter.

Now next year, if we're in the same boat. Put someone else in. Go for it.

re: Should We Give Brennan Playing Time Now?

Campbell is our QB this and beyond! Why would you take a game away from HIS development in this new offense? He's the starter and the more experience he gets the better off the team will be next season. I've seen thread after thread about replacing almost EVERYBODY on the team. This is their first year with Zorn as the Coach. Like it or not, there are going to be growing pains. I'm sick of watching the Skins get pushed around every year like the rest of you but constant change is what got the Redskins here. Give Zorn a chance (1 season is NOT enough time)! I really believe this team can and will evolve into something special under Zorn. Anyone who thought the Skins were going to win the Superbowl before the season started or even after the 6-2 start was just kidding themselves. We aren't there yet. Danny Boy needs to be patient and stay the course for once.

Pheeeeewww, now I'm out of breath.

HAIL!!

re: Should We Give Brennan Playing Time Now?

wont happen...i think Campbell needs a vertical reciever opposite of Moss...and some O-Line help before i give up on him...he really hasnt made THAT MANY BAD DESCISIONS (only 6 INTS for a 7-7 team)...couple overthrows but...
IF ANYTHINGS GONNA CHANGE Lets go for Cassell next year.

re: Should We Give Brennan Playing Time Now?

Changing the thread title. Seriously people, let's improve these thread titles. They should be a bit more descriptive. I saw "Colt Brennan" (the 3rd or 4th thread here with that exact title) and I thought maybe there was some breaking news, like he had been promoted to #2 QB for the remainder of the season.

Re: Should We Give Brennan Playing Time Now?

Although Campbell hasn't made many mistakes (6 Ints), he also hasn't made any big plays. Yes, the O line sucks, but what would it hurt to give Colt a chance to get in there and get his feet wet? I mean, he may surprise us and be able to get rid of the ball quicker and not completely stare down his receivers! If he looks like crap we can move forward and not have to revisit this issue in the future. In my opinion, I think we should throw him in there and see what he can do, just a thought. I've been a huge JC backer and defender, but I say we give Colt a chance to see what he can do.
