Re: Give Colt Brennan a shot with the 1st team offense in 2010

I was really hoping to sign Bradford, and let Colt be #2, and eventually take over the starting job (since Campbell will likely lose the starting job), but then we sign Rex Grossman? Seriously? We got rid of Collins because of no upside (which I agreed with) then we sign Grossman, with less of an upside than Collins? HUH?
Johnson and Grossman are a couple of the dumbest signings this season...thankfully we aren't paying them much.

If you honestly have more faith in Brennan than Grossman at this point I want to know who signs your prescriptions.

Grossman does have more upside than Collins. Collins' career is trending down if it isn't over. Grossman is working for another opportunity.

Did Grossman screw up one of your fantasy teams or something? (He did that to one of mine)

LOL, no. It's not that I have more faith in Brennan over Grossman, it's that Grossman had his shot and did nothing to deserve another one. Colt has never had a shot and he deserves one. Like I said, I agreed with letting Collins go, but why sign a guy that has had his shot and didn't perform well in doing it?
Here is my problem, I can totally get on board with "rebuilding" and allowing a couple young guys (ie: colt and bradford for instance) duke it out when campbell fails, but I can not agree with going into this season with an inconsistant Campbell under center and the guy backing him up being a lot worse with no real upside unless you consider hope an upside. I'd rather pin my hopes on "potential" than just settling for a guy that isn't going anywhere.

I view this year as a transition year with potential. No one will argue that Campbell isn't inconsistent, but if he had a Pro-Bowl consideration type season next year would anyone really be shocked? I wouldn't, he was in the MVP consideration after we were 6-2.

As far as Grossman, I think he has potential too. Especially since he is going to be in the system that he was in last year. If he beat out Campbell, I wouldn't be surprised. In fact, it could be argued that Grossman actually has a leg up right now. Give them the benefit of the doubt, I guarantee Kyle S. had a lot to do with that signing.

I would much rather have Rex over Collins. Colt isn't out of the picture yet. He may have to beat someone out, but he will get a chance.

It would surprise me to see him the MVP race. A lot actually. Anyone can play well for a stretch, but for a whole season??? It's too hard to perform well all season long, only the really good can do that, and Campbell is not really good. Campbell would be a decent back up IMO.

I can respect the opinion that Grossman has potential, I just don't agree.

I just don't want either of them.

Well, if we sign Bradford, there is no room for Colt.

I don't think Campbell will be in the MVP race. I was just saying that people were saying that a couple of years ago (Jaworski specifically). But I wouldn't be surprised if Campbell approached Pro-Bowl numbers, assuming the pieces fit together on the O-line.

You are right, if we sign Bradford (or Clausen) it would take a miracle or injury for Colt to make the team.

I was wondering if Shanahan normally keeps 3 QBs? It may already be over for Colt...

Nice post. Grossman can't be written off yet for a couple reasons. Chicago had exactly what great offensive weapons when Grossman was the starter? Let's be honest they won on their defense and then had a very amazing special teams unit. Grossman had an above average running game to rely on typically and very little talent to work w/ otherwise. He forced things way too often, and when you force things you see more turnovers. Certainly he's flat stunk in stretches, but let's not pretend like he had a lot to work w/ when he was on the field.

I hope it's not the case Shanny has already decided one way or another on Colt Brennan. Of the three QBs on the roster my intuition is he has the most upside...like he was quoted saying recently it's gonna take someone at this level giving him the kind of shot he got in Hawaii.

Well, he finally woke up and smelled the flowers. Maybe he can now actually challenge Collins, who was the best QB on the roster, oh wait...
Well, we've got a few months before the fireworks fly.

Either way, Colt is playing for his career right now. Either he shows something to Shanny and he keeps him around or he gets cut and another team picks him up.

Yeah, regardless of what the team's plans are for colt, its always good to see effort and dedication from the guys on your roster.

I'm glad he's 100% and I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do.

Rex Grossman and the bears took advantage of a weak schedule that year enroute to the SuperBowl.Rex is better than Colt because he has a year in the system.Rex might be better anyway the skins dont need to draft Sam Bradford or Jimmy Clausen Campbell is the future so they need to focus on that!!!
