WOW, I really didn't expect this to happen until after the season was over.

I'm very happy about this.

Nice job Patrick!

It's about time somebody showed some faith in this kid. I'm glad they cleared up right away that they wouldn't go after a free agent QB. That was really pissing me off thinking that they might go after Brees or Kitna. Thank God...it seems like things might actually be turning around under Gibbs after all. I thought they would, but I did have my doubts. At least now we'll see what might happen with a team that keeps some form of chemistry for at least a season or two.

Now, that leaves a question of what to do with Brunell. If we cut him, it's going to hurt us in our salary cap. Hopefully, he will renegotiate his contract to veteran's minimum and stick around as Ramsey's backup.

Amen.

Stability is the foundation Gibbs is building this team on and it's great to see it's more than just lip service.

I thought it wouldn't happen until after the season, Gibbs must really feel comfortable with Patrick to make this decision so quickly. I definitely applaud this move.

I wonder if this may be a pre-emptive strike on Danny Boy. Perhaps Coach Joe got wind of the next free agent master plan the racquetball buddies (Vinny and Danny) were scheming up and decided to publicly pop it before it took on a life of its own.

We all see Gibbs as the coach (where his authority is undisputed), but we have to remember he is also the President (a more mysterious area of responsibility). Now, Dan is stuck b/c he can't "go against" Gibbs. "But, Coach, Jeff George is a changed man, I'm tellin ya..."

Im glad Brunell isnt getting another look. But im not sure if Ramsey is the real deal yet. He still has happy feet and I dont think ive ever seen him make a second read. He worries about getting killed still and isnt making plays down field. I'll have to see if this is playcalling or his fault.

He genuinely seems like a good guy, he may just do that. It would really help the organization on salary cap and stop Brunell becoming unemployed. Can anyone see another team being interested now?

Great news.

this team doesnt need any more change beyond shoring up the OLine. maybe a little on the Dline.

Gibbs had Brunell take 90% of the snaps in practice, big mistake. Ramsey has all the tools, with some hard fought battles vs. Philly, Pittsburgh and two wins (soon to be four) this season, then getting all the snaps in practice next season, those tools will be plenty sharp.

I disagree that he doesn't go through his progressions, he checks down all the time.

As for going down the field I think that's more due to Gibbs keeping a tight leash on him. We saw him going down the field a bit more against San Fran and that should continue as the trust factor grows.

Glad coach Joe made the decision now. Patrick is doing better the more playing time he gets. We don't need another QB controversy going into next season. Make PR the starter next season and if he can't get it done then and at least get us into the playoffs, then get rid of him and bring in someone new (not Brunnell).

this is awesome news, I can only imagine, that Patrick is going to have a boat load of confidence now, he now needs to make this team his, and I think now he knows he is the CEO of offense, this can only help him and this team!!!
