By the time he learns the system Gibbs will be gone and we'll have a new system in place.

Re: QB controversey in 2005?

I voted yes, but for a different reason than most of you guys. I think that the press will not allow us not to have a QB controversy. If there really isn't one, they will invent one. That is a way to sell papers, and I believe they will do it just to rile us (and Ramsey) up.

I think that Gibbs brought in Campbell for three reasons.

1. Gibbs knows that Brunnel can't push for the starting job again. He needed to bring in a top notch QB to push Ramsey to his full potential.
2. Ramsey could decide that he wants to play free agent next year, and if his year is not great for the Skins, we may not have the money in 2006 to keep him. Locking him up on a long term deal would be a big risk if he does not play well in his fourth year.
3. Gibbs believes we need 2 quality QB's at all times to compete for the superbowl. He knows that almost every year, the QB goes down for a game or two and the backup needs to be able to pull out a win if needed.

I don't think that Ramsey losing a few games will get a controversy brewing, but Ramsey losing a few and then getting hurt... then Campbell wins one in his place... look out!

Just for the record, Ramsey is my guy and I think he is going to have a career year.

Re: QB controversey in 2005?

I don't see a controversey starting this year. From what I've read Cambell is 2 yrs away from being a NFL starter. Next year maybe. But it's really Ramsey's job to lose.If he steps up and plays well(like Drew Bress) we might not see Cambell untill 2007 or more.
I think Patrick will be fine.If He can get a few wins to start the year He'll be the toast of the town again.

Re: QB controversey in 2005?

I voted true. The reason is because the media usually controls whether there is a quarterback contreversy, not the team. As soon as Ramsey has a bad game we'll hear whispers from sportscenter, and the post calling for a change. The fans usually follow suit and then when Dan feel his pocket getting thinner from the loss of fans in the stands, then Gibbs will start to feel it. Also in my opinion I don't think Pat is Gibbs' favorite player anyway, why is that? because he didn't pick him, so therefore he doesn't trust him.

1.) Ramsey takes his lumps under Spurrier. Gibbs comes back and immediately signs Brunell to a huge deal. Even assuming that the starting spot was up for grabs when they started camp (some cynics would argue that the size of Brunell's contract suggests otherwise), signing another quarterback to an outsized contract before Ramsey had played a down for Gibbs falls short of a vote of confidence.
2.) Brunell positively tanks. Gibbs refuses to play Ramsey long after it becomes apparent that Brunell's best days are behind him.
3.) Gibbs declares in December that Ramsey is "our guy." In April, before Ramsey has played a down in the new season, Gibbs sacrifices a bunch of picks to trade up and get another quarterback.

Re: QB controversey in 2005?

If the Skins are 12-0 right around Thanksgiving time, there will be no QB controversy.

Otherwise...

With baseball gone in DC for 34 years, "QB Controversy" has become the national passtime around here.

oh god... i hope we are not 2-6 at midseason.

Re: QB controversey in 2005?

Even if Ramsey stinks it up this year, I have a feeling if he is benched, Brunell will more than likely start. I'm sure most will say that's laughable, but I have a feeling it's probable. However, if this does happen, it sure will make for an interesting 2006 season.

Re: QB controversey in 2005?

I agree - I have a feeling Gibbs is looking for the slightest excuse to use our record to try to jumpstart Brunell's career!

Re: QB controversey in 2005?

I too, am afraid of the whole Brunell thing. If there is one thing that I completely disagree with Gibbs about, it's his whole veteran thing. I know it worked first time around, and I was OK with him trying it again, but PLEASE do not let Brunell on the field anymore!
