Has Zorn already hand picked the QB for his offense?

With all of the rumors circulating around Jay Cutler, and the ridiculous rumors surrounding a trade involving the Skins, it occured to me. Zorn may have already hand picked his future QB in the 6th round of the 2008 NFL draft. Two points:

1). A trade for Cutler isn't at all feasible. Forget Campbell (who still has potential), the prospect of trading Cooley or Landry (two of our dynasty's building blocks) in order to get a trade done is outlandish and will never happen.

2). More importantly. Zorn built his NFL reputation on the fact that he groomed a raw and unknown 6th round QB into a perennial pro-bowler. His first draft as head coach, he selected a QB in the 6th round who others considered raw, Colt Brennan.

BTW- Brennan just happens to hold numerous NCAA passing records and played in a pass happy offense. He posess excellent accuracy, a necessity in the WCO.

Who else thinks Brennan will subplant JC is we stumble next season?

No I don't want to give up Cooley and Landry, and I don't see Brennan taking over this year, even if Campbell got injured we'd plug in Collins. We did pay Collins good money to stay, and perform when needed.

I think "the one who shall not be named" will be the number two QB next season.

I think OP brings up a good point. If Campbell struggles early, will Zorn put his job security in JC? I could see "the one who shall not be named" starting mid season if JC struggles early.

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

Everybody knows the only reason that Colt isn't starting is because the NFL deemed him too dangerous to play in regular season games. They know he will break every passing record ever created in his first month as a starter and they don't want to undo 100+ years of NFL History.

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

Don't get me wrong I like Colt, but I also think Jason deserves a chance to be in a system for more than 1 year before we say he's not good enough, I could see if he has been in the system for a while and not showing improvement, but remember the 6-2 start he was brilliant..So let's give him another year in the system and see what happens before we replace him with Colt( who has not played in 1 single regular season game) and I've yet to see anything that say's he's better than Jason.

This is a stupid thread. I know there aren't any news, but come on.

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

It's not THAT bad of a thread. First of all, Campbell really hasn't done much in the NFL thus far. Secondly, he wasn't drafted by Zorn. This means that Zorn doesn't have an attachment to him that say Gibbs would (since he drafted him.) Zorn will (and thus far, has) given Campbell a fair shot -- but if he doesn't make large strides this year, I wouldn't be surprised in the least to see Colt a bit or another QB he picks up. I must say, I'd like to see Colt get some live game action in garbage time sometime.

Personally, I would love to have Cutler on this team -- but not for one of the two great young players we have. You hold on to those players with a firm grip.
