What If?

What happen's if Ramsey come's out firing this season and becomes the QB some of us envision, he then becomes the unquestionable starter, and the skins are now his team, what do we do? No doubt he will want to break the bank at this point, and I can't blame him, as well as having a #1 pick sitting on the bench for who know's how long. The Campbell pick is predicated on Ramsey failing. If he succeed's?

Re: What If?

No doubt about it. We would have to trade Ramsey. One, because Ramsey has value. And two, because Brunell doesn't. Plus, you got to have a veteran QB on your roster. And no, Ramsey is not a veteran. Teams would look at a proposed trade for Campbell but, they would want to see him play more against NFL competition before they trade for him.

Re: What If?

that would be amazing if Ramsey succeeds becuaes that means that we will have done well this year, which is clearly what all of us should want. Having two good qbs is a great problem to have.

You dont trade Ramsey. Absolutley not; look at San Diego this year... they did the smart thing. Rivers is the unproven commodity, and they have a perfectly good team; and you dont mess that up. If Ramsey came out and became the guy we would all love him to be, you cant trade him and replace him with an unproven guy like Campbell. I dont care if we wasted the first round pick or not, you dont mess with a team like that if its succeeding and a guy is finally clicking in the system. I would say if this happened, you keep Ramsey the one more year of his contract and make sure he is not a one year wonder, and then if he keeps it up, you sign him big and do somthing with Campbell. I think alot of people are under the impression that this is Ramseys last year of his contract (not anyone in perticular, i just get that vibe); but he'll still be around in 2006. Of course I would love for this scenerio to play out this way, and I hope Ramsey has a very good year.

Re: What If?

I like campbell and think he has more potential. And I wish he would just start week one. But hes not going to, and its probably best becuase in general rookies arent ready. But I dont want ramsey to just suck so we put in campbell becuase im tired of us losing. If Ramsey is our guy then I hope he is a probowler.

Re: What If?

If Ramsey shows us this year that he can be MontanaISH, then you keep him. Pay him for what he's worth if his contract is up. If it isn't, prepare for the future (contract), but make sure you keep Campbell as well. Unless Brunell show dramatic improvement, I think you have to cut him if he's not willing to accept third string.

Re: What If?

I could see Ramsey vs. Campbell being very similar to Brees vs. Rivers. If we could only get rid of Brunell.

Re: What If?

This was sort of touched on the day of the draft. The only way i see Ramsey staying at the end of his contract is if there just isn't any team really after him. If I were PR I would bail. The Skins FO/coachs have shown no loyality or belief in him at all.

If he does pretty well this year he still could get pushed out of the way for the 5th year of his contract if the FO doesn't think they can resign. Plus there will be presure to show that they didn't waste all those picks on Campbell. I think the FO will really show what they are thinking by the size and scope of Campbells contract.

Yes and no, I think the only one in the organazation that hasen't been loyal to Ramsey is Gibbs, not that he owed Patrick anything, I just feel Gibbs pretty much brushed Patrick aside last year without giving him any real consideration. Remember Patrick is Danny's boy, he drafted him, Snyder also didn't want Brunell in here either, and in all liklyhood it was because he believed in Patrick, but as of now the organazation stop's with Gibbs, so yes Patrick has to do backflip's to get some respect from Gibbs.

Re: What If?

but if he stinks it up look at the money we save by cutting/trading him next year over 2 mil. It is a give and take but if he is good we resign him and if we can't afford it we don't sign him after his contract is over and if we get a trade next year that is a savings of 2 mil. i think we would resign him but if we can't afford him "what ya gonna do?"

If Ramsey starts every game this season, he will have 45 career starts. That's a veteran. He currently has a positive TD-to-INT ratio, something any coach would look for in a veteran QB (starter or backup). I want Ramsey to succeed as a Redskin more than anything, but it's wise to prepare for the possibility that he won't do so. Having a QB on the roster learning the offense and the speed of the league is a good thing.

Re: What If?

I'm way more hyped about this season than last year with the whole 'return of the king' episode. Ramsey has had (will have had) all offseason to learn,and coming off a strong finish in '04, hewil be the man.I truly believe he has the intellegence, confidence and talent to silence all of his doubters. And when I say doubters I mean everyone associated with the NFL.

Re: What If?

I think the reason people feel that way is because Ramsey was brushed aside pretty soundly when Brunell came into town. I know it was an open competition in camp, but when you have an entrenched starter, I don't feel that should be the case.

Re: What If?

I know that Betts was also brushed aside when Portis showed up, but I don't recall Betts being drafted as our #1 back (even though I really like the way the guy runs).

Re: What If?

With the kind of emphasis Gibbs puts on the QB position, there is no way he'd trade Ramsey if he has a good year.
