Re: Poll: Starting QB 2006

I say, once we are mathematically out of the playoffs lets give the ball to campbell and see what he's got...let him finish out the year and he'll be ready for next year.

Re: Poll: Starting QB 2006

Why wouldn't any skin fan, wouldn't want Campbell to start, there no reason to bring in any other QB or keep, trying to hope Ramsey will just emerge like Brady and save the day, I'm so curious to see what Campbell can do, since some people in here thinks that he's such a dummy, its hard enough being a QB in this league, but still the Black QB has to continue to prove himself........the more things change the more they stay the same

Re: Poll: Starting QB 2006

I would like to see Campbell THIS SEASON, once/if we lose our 7th game, just too let him take a few lumps, or maybe suprise the hell out of us and be awsome. Unless that happens, I see Brunell as the starter.

Why do you always have to play the race card on things? I do not remember anyone here say that because Campbell is black he is stupid and therefor can not play QB.

Re: Poll: Starting QB 2006

I think Brunell should start next season. Lets use Brunell until he looks like a more permanent version of last year. There is no reason to stick a rookie qb in right now. Just look at how Ramsey turned out. Give Campbell another year to study the clipboard, get rid of Ramsey, move Campbell up to #2, and don't put in Campbell unless Brunell gets hurt.

Re: Poll: Starting QB 2006

Brunell gives us the best shot at winning now and next year.

I can't see him not being the starter next year, unless he gets hurt of course.

Re: Poll: Starting QB 2006

While I'm certainly not against Brunell starting the first few games next year, I personally chose Campbell as the guy I would start. My reasoning is that playing time will help him work through mistakes and improve. He'll probably struggle through the first six or eight games (like Carson Palmer) before figuring things out, but he'll have Brunell to show him the ropes. As for Ramsey, I like the guy but he simply won't get any chances in Washington. Trade him for a WR, DE, or draft pick.

Re: Poll: Starting QB 2006

I have no problem admitting that i voted for Ramsey to start in 2006...but that vote is contingent upons several things...since alot of things could still happen between now and then.

1.
First if Brunell gets us into the playoffs this year then i will immediately rescind...and would be fine with him going into next year as the starter...as he will have proven to be a positive addition to the redskins.

2.
If we dont make playoffs however, then Brunell will have proven to be a waste for this Franchise. I think it is fair to say that he was added to the team to win now...and if after two years of being the starter...he still hasnt gotten the team to the playoffs...then i believe you would be hardpressed to argue that adding Brunell was a successful move for the redskins organization.

As a result if this scenario comes true (more likely at this point since we may have to win 5 in a row to get into the playoffs...though i am still holding out hope we will get in) then i would be absolutely 100 percent opposed to continuing to start Brunell...as i belive he will have had his chance...and shown that he cuold not get the job done...for whatever reason.

That leaves Ramsey and Cambell as our other QBs. I said in another post that i am for sacrificing the teams chances of winning now...in order to aid our chances of winning much more later. Thus, if Gibbs deems Campbell ready to assume the starting role...then i would have no problem with that.

However...given Gibbs tendency to avoid starting young QBs i believe Ramsey oughta get his first real chance under Gibbs.

If Ramsey then goes out and succeeds (not neccessarily pro bowl...but proves to be a viable starting QB) then we could franchise him for the following year...and then Gibbs would have his choice of keeping either Ramsey or Campbell and really cashing in on the other by trading him away (like Sandiego will do this offseason with Brees or Rivers.

If Ramsey doesnt succeed...then Gibbs makes the switch to Campbell (not after 1 quarter...but at least after half the season) and we look toward the future. In any case, I dont think Ramsey would leave us with an awful record...considering he led us to a 3-4 finish last year...in an offense that was much less opened up and efficient than this years.)

Thats my 2 cents.

And one more thing for the record...From France where i am currently studying abroad...i am predicting us not needing to get a number two receiver in the offseason...because Taylor Jacobs steps up and fills that role...and Patten makes a fine number 3, and Thrash number 4.

Brunell, but it would be nice to see Campbell get some PT toward the end of the season.

Re: Poll: Starting QB 2006

I don't think Brunell has to take the team to the playoffs this year to justify his signing. He was brought in for what basically amounts to a 3-year deal. I would fully expect him to remain the starter for next year, Ramsey will stay at the #2 unless a quality trade offer comes along, and Campbell will remain as the #3.

Re: Poll: Starting QB 2006

To have to make the decision today, I would go with Mark Brunell. After all, our losses aren't his alone to own.

Re: Poll: Starting QB 2006

Matty i must say i disagree...i mean nothing against you of course...but i feel like it is undeniable that brunell was brought in here to win right away. If he hasnt done it for two years then i dont see how it couldnt have been better at the time to just keep Ramsey...and see what the guy could or couldnt do. Then at least we would have known for sure whether he had what it takes...and if not...we could have drafted someone else...ie cambell...and not to mention having money left over to sign a different guy that could have actually helped improve the team...either a d-lineman or helping retain peirce or just simply being in a healthier cap situation going forward.

I mean i am not blaming Gibbs...because he was of course doing what he felt was in the best interests of the club and could not know in advance what would have come out of it. However...if we do not make playoffs for the second year in a row that brunell has been starting...then there is no question in my mind that if we had it to do all over again...i would prefer to keep Ramsey...See what we had in him...and then draft someone else if he didnt workout. Therefore from my standpoint...if one agrees with that assessment...that if we do not make playoffs they would not have signed Brunell if they had to do it again...then i believe that is implicitly saying that he was not a good signing...thats just the way i see it though.

Good point - I was thinking along the same lines.

That said, given Brunell's resurgence this year, I think he has the capability to live up to his expectations (i.e., winning and getting to the playoffs). However, the big "plus" for MB was that he played mistake-free football in preseason and at the start of the season. He certainly hasn't been doing that lately, and he needs to get back to that to be successful.

Re: Poll: Starting QB 2006

Brunell's comeback peaked in the couple of games after Dallas.

Now, he's back to a middle-of-the-pack QB. In passing yards, he ranks 15th (2,356 yards) and his QB rating is 13th (86.8).

Bring on Campbell next year, and keep Brunell as a seasoned veteran backup.
