Should Brunell be replaced?

Aright...glad that we got the win despite a shitty performance. So...we are still in the playoff race...and the remaining games still are meaningful for us...

The question is...should Brunell be replaced for the Dallas game?

In my opinion i would not outright say Brunell should be replaced. But i do believe Gibbs ought to give Ramsey some snaps with the first team this week in addition to Brunell...and at least consider the possibility of a switch going into next week.

Re: Qb

Re: Qb

Brunell may indeed need to be replaced if that throwing hand is hurt, but only then.

Re: Qb

yeah if he has a bad injury that affects his throwing hand, then i'd consider it. But I'd say no considering we're in the middle of a playoff race, fighting to get in, and P.R. probably wouldn't get us in.

Re: Qb

Only if he's injured. Otherwise, you stick with Brunell.

Re: Qb

I was a little uneasy to see that Brunell was starting in the second but I'm glad Gibbs didn't make the switch. Unless he's injured (which I hope he never gets injured) then don't switch.

Re: Qb

he had one bad half. he has been doing exactly what the coaches want him to do perfectly until that one bad half. you don't sit a guy for one bad half.

Re: Qb

I was a Brunell supporter a lot I just thought that Gibbs might've sat him down...cause that was a freak game. And most of them were deflections and one he overshot the reciever.

Re: Qb

I agree in principal that you wouldn't pull a QB after one performance like that (and having said that you know where I still stand after PR being pulled in the middle of the first game) but... you guys have to agree that brunell does not have the accuracy and nor does he get the defensive reads he was getting in the first half of the season. At first when he was on the field he was there with a purpose, and now it seems that he's a bit lost and off target... and we've seen too much of that in a QB the last several years.

I'm still not for pulling him... but if i were in gibb's position, i may shorten the leash a bit if he doesn't step up next week at home.

Also, I'd try and put antonio brown in the slot position (if not at the #2 position because taylor jacobs just blows no two ways about it) and see if that makes a defense give portis and moss a little bit of room.

Re: Qb

if he did this bad the first 5 games of the year as he has the last 5 i would be calling for his head but we are a playoff contending team and playoff teams don't pull their QB 3 weeks before the playoffs

Re: Qb

While Brunell's productivity has taken a dive recently, you can't pull the guy with whom the receivers have developed a chemistry after 13 games and insert a right hander that hasn't seen the playing field since week one.

As bad as the offense was against a poor defense today, making a quarterback change now would make things astoundingly worse.

The real problem is that teams have zeroed in on Santana Moss and you cannot depend on Chris Cooley to pick up all the slack. Taylor Jacobs had his third pathetic game in a row as the #2 receiver, and if that doesn't settle once and for all his capability as a viable wideout, I don't know what will. He presents no consistent option for the quarterback whatsoever.
