Re: brunell signs with saints

lol. its not like Brunell was the only thing wrong with the Skins, they just like to blame the QB like everyone else. the Skins just suck.

great pickup imo. this is a guy I wouldn't mind seeing stepping into the starting role for a few drives if Brees were to get messed up a little bit and needed to go to the sideline to get taped up or something.

Upgrade at back-up QB. Good move.

Re: Saints Sign Veteran QB Brunell

Question why not someone young like a Tim Hasselbeck. I wonder what the KNOCK on him is.

Re: Saints Sign Veteran QB Brunell

I was very happy to hear about this pick up. Is Mark a starter...no. However, he is a very good backup. I feel 100 times better with him backing Drew up.

Re: Saints Sign Veteran QB Brunell

I love this signing. We needed a good backup in case Brees goes down...even if it is just for a game or two. Brunell is experienced and can help settle Drew and point out a few sideline observations that might come in to play for the next series. Brunell can step right in and dink and dunk just as effectively as Brees. One down side - opposite ball spin might affect some of the less gifted clutchers.
