    Brunell benched in favor of Campbell

    http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/6167724

    Hmmm...should we do the same with OUR veteran in favor of the rookie?

    Campbell is not a rookie.
    Let our rookie marfinate for a while and do some more learning.

    But BOTH Vince Young and Bruce Gradkowski ARE rookies and they are starting for their respective teams!

    Bucs are 2-6.
    Titans are 2-7

    I like 4-5 better

    but isnt the only reason Bruce Gradkowski is starting is because chris simms's spleen exploded or something

    yeah, and he's tossing juicy interceptions, too.

    Its always hard to say with any Qb....when to start their career officially.

    TJack was #2 until his injury this year, Bollinger is healthy and #2.
    Who knows.

    Re: Brunell benched in favor of Campbell

    This move was a longtime coming for Gibbs ... he made a mistake by never going back to Ramsey last year and then putting all his hopes behind Brunell ... I sense that Childress has made the same mistake.
    I think it is time for a change at QB ... have thought it since before the Lions game ... we simply CANNOT win the Super Bowl with Brad Johnson at the helm ... PERIOD ... and for that reason change is needed ... if there is ANY goal other than getting to (or winning) the Super Bowl then a team needs to re-evaluate its goals.
    At this point, Super Bowl seems impossible ... so play for next year's Super Bowl, or maybe T-Jack is a stud just awaiting his chance ...
    Time to move on I think ... but I have been wrong before.

    I think this is a pretty smart move on the Skins' part. What do they have to lose. Brunell is getting old and just not getting the job done, give this guy his shot.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!
