Thumbs down OTA's : Quarterbacks

Anybody see the Redskins.com coverage of the quarterbacks at the OTA's? One thing stood out. Brunell still sucks. All his throws (the few I saw) were either wide, behind the receiver or underthrown. Sound familiar? So maybe the FO knew a little something after all when drafting J. Campbell. He looks awfully good and HIS throws were crisp, accurate and pretty. He will be the #2 to Patrick by the time the season starts. Even as a rookie, this is a great insurance policy. Brunell as a #3 is even a stretch. He should retire, give back some of the money and hold a clipboard.

Exactly. Let him talk about the good ol' days like when he had to walk 10 miles in the snow to throw crappy passes.

Re: OTA's : Quarterbacks

Man, the OTAs are great. The Dline one was hella boring. They also talk about Santana Moss and Antonio Brown racing, which is something I'd love to see in one of them. The defensive drills is probably my favorite. Nothing like watching big guys fight over a cone!

The only bad throw I have seen in any of the clips was when Ramsey missed Cooley by about 10 yards!

Re: OTA's : Quarterbacks

poor Mark his career is done, but now we know why the Redskins used the 25th pick on Campbell............Hassellbeck wasn't the answer either......like I always say,
"IN GIBBS I TRUST"..........Joe saw something in Campbell he liked, and his friend and former QB Doug Williams seems to concur on what he saw at the Senior Bowl..........
I think its nice that Williams let Campbell wear #17............no number controversey ...

Actually, I did enjoy that Dline one. Only because of the story that they told at the begining about the undrafted Free Agent who slept on the sidewalk outside Redskins park so he wouldnt be late to pracitce.

Re: OTA's : Quarterbacks

True, Gmac. Good to see a guy with that kind of dedication!

Monk - that debate can go on forever, no doubting Campbell is a very talented QB.

He could hardly say no when they had already let Danny W wear it.

I think Williams always regarded number 12 as his 1st choice number anyway - he only wore 17 in D.C.

ASs for Brunell - he had some excellent years in Jacksonville but he has taken too much punnishment over the years and it has caught up with him. He was a good mobile QB who has lost his mobility. He never did have a rocket to begin with.

Re: OTA's : Quarterbacks

You're right, Dieselhog. Now he's a QB with no mobility and a noodle arm. If he's such a devout "christian", he should give some of the money back out of good conscience. Which is why drafting Campbell was a smart move in my opinion. He will be our starter one day. Remember, eagirl fans booed the drafting of Donovan McNabb and he's done ok. Except for chucking it in the SuperBowl (according to T.O.).

Re: OTA's : Quarterbacks

I'm glad Campbell looks good, but I'm not exactly following why Brunell sucking vindicates that pick. We didn't draft Campbell to be our number 2, but to compete for number 1. It's Ramsey we should be comparing him to. You don't trade 3 picks to draft a backup qb.

Also, I've made this point before, but my attitude was in Gibbs we trust with Brunell, when he pursued the washup for inscrutable reasons. After that debacle it has shifted to in Gibbs we hope.

That being said, I really hope Campbell is good.

Re: OTA's : Quarterbacks

Maybe I missed it, but I didn't even see any clips of Brunell. Just Ramsey and Campbell.

Campbell looks like Brunell circa 1996

Re: OTA's : Quarterbacks

It's still early, QBs are going to look rusty this time of year. I know Brunell-bashing is quite popular, but I'm actually rooting for the guy to come back strong, especially if we need him should Ramsey go down.

It's also way too early to start forming opinions on Campbell. I'll wait to see how he looks when the bullets are live.

Re: OTA's : Quarterbacks

Good man Matty, I thought I was alone in pulling for Brunell to bounce back, he has been a solid pro his entire career and I'm not gonna give up on him because of one bad year.

Re: OTA's : Quarterbacks

I don't have any hate now for Brunell. He stunk it up and I'm sad we spent SO much money on him. I'd love him to come back strong, but if Ramsey AND Campbell go down. I know he SHOULD be #2, but I think Campbell should get his reps in game time too.
