Re: Has Zorn already hand picked the QB for his offense?

Guys lets be real, there's only 2 QB'S that could start for us in '09... Campbell or Cutler (I think we will atleast try and get him) I do like Colt but Campbell is better for us right now. And Cold was our 3rd QB last year and maybe again this season, and the best team he faced in his career in college was vs GA and we know what happened then!

Re: Has Zorn already hand picked the QB for his offense?

completely off topic, but since i am so qb'd out, why cant we get a qb whose name doesn't start with a C.
That means no to:
Campbell
Collins
Cutler
and
Colt.
Who can we get then???

Re: Has Zorn already hand picked the QB for his offense?

Colt is what he is - a backup. As in, he's there to back up Campbell (and Collins at this point), should something happen to one or both of them.

It always amazes me that all of the Colt Cult won't acknowledge that he didn't even beat out a 38 year old for the 2nd spot last year, yet they scream he's the next coming at the position.

I'm curious to see if he could be a good player (against 1st stringers in the REGULAR season), but I'll wait until A) Jason starts playing horribly and B) Colt can actually win the job as #1 clipboard holder.

Re: Has Zorn already hand picked the QB for his offense?

Reasons why JC is better for us than CB:

-is it fair to say campbell can throw a football 35+ yds further than CB?
-if JC played 4 years at Hawaii, they would name a volcano after him and deem him a god
-campbell has better mobility than brennan and is getting used to facing NFL defenses
-brennan cannot throw a deep ball; which is moss's biggest play and our best big-play

Honestley, just because Campbell ended the season on a bad note doesnt mean he doesnt still have great potential. Before week 8 would you even consider benching him?

Re: Has Zorn already hand picked the QB for his offense?

Lets take a look at the comparable drafted QB's since in the last 10 years....not very impressive, I'd say. The reality is the only 1 that didn't suck was Campbell....thanks to Gibbs hand picking him and him having 1st/2nd round talent.
Our FO sucks at picking QBs period...especially late...they need an experienced Head Coach to do it for them

Look at these later QBs:
Todd Husak 6th in 2000
Sage Rosenfels 4th in 2001...ok...got a touch lucky but the jury is way out and he was a 4th rounder hand picked by Marty.
Gibran Hamden 7th in 2003
Jordan Palmer 6th in 2007
or the GLORIOUS Colt Brennan 6th in 2008...

Pa-leeze...
I'd love to see this guy complete a pass beyond 20 yards without getting anything get batted down.
Dont get me wrong...I think he's roster worthy and could develop into a decent #2...but to suggest he is a contender for a starting role is crazy. But I understand if you are totally bored

Re: Has Zorn already hand picked the QB for his offense?

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that none of you has any idea what you are talikng about when it comes to Colt Brennan.

The franchise can't even figure out what they have in Jason Campbell after three years and you people think you can evaluate Colt Brennan's future after one year as the backup to the backup?

UHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. No.

Re: Has Zorn already hand picked the QB for his offense?

www.washingtonexaminer.com >> Sports

Denver wants to try and repair its relationship with Jay Cutler. But, if by the end of the weekend that doesn’t happen, then the Broncos will strongly consider putting him on the market.

And the Redskins remain one of the teams a league source says would be interested in the Pro Bowl quarterback.

Washington has strongly denied interest in trading for Cutler. But the league source insisted they would be one of a handful of teams that would like to acquire Cutler.

The New York Jets, Tampa Bay were two of the other teams with Tennessee perhaps a possibility as well.

“A minimum of five teams are motivated to do something and maybe even seven,” the source said. “Washington is one of them. …[But] Denver will try to resolve the situation.”

It’s debatable whether or not the Redskins would have enough to make the deal happen.

Denver likely would want a quarterback in return and perhaps another player or a draft pick. Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell has one year left on his deal and the franchise has not made any movement toward extending his contract.

Sounds like we are still interested in Cutler.

Funny!!!!!! Brennan just might be the future, but JC is the starter for '09 and if he doesn't really improve his ass is gone. Can't see why all these folks are still so sold on him. I can see thinking he is a decent QB, but you have guys thinking he is our franchise QB. I just don't see it in the guy. Regardless of the offensive schemes he has had to learn, his mechanics and poise are the problems. Schemes shouldn't affect those all that much. I just don't see JC just all of a sudden blooming into a perennial pro bowler after a medicore season last year and an average career thus far. Remember the QB is only as good as the team surrounding him also. The team as a whole is mediocre(especially offensively) so that in itself hurts JC. Haynesworth will help for sure, but will it help an otherwise inept offense that much?

Yeah, but what calibre of team surrounded Colt at Hawaii? Could you imagine what Colt could have done, say at Florida, Florida St, Oklahoma? THe bastard would have still set NCAA passing records and then some!!!! JC was from a top Div 1-A school that had two first round running backs as the featured weapons, and a huge o line. Does JC have any Auburn passing records?

forget giving people time...you either get it done...or you don't! plain and simple, and JC is too hesitant on his throws. Santana Moss even said it dudes. I for one won't be suprised if JC gets the axe this year.

Would Timmy Chang have posted in a more pro-like offensive system that doesn't practically throw every down? The one thing that makes Colt better than Chang is his completion percentage.
BTW, one of his receivers, Davone Bess, is with the Dolphins and has had playing time.
