Colt Brennen definitely has the talent to be an excellent Quarterback. The only question that remains is, if he can physically withstand the punishment of the NFL.

It is excellent to see Colt doing so well. However, it's not surprising to us Hawaii fans. All Colt and Hawaii haters are really having a hard time with this. The realization that Tebow was not the best quarterback or Heisman selection is already gnawing in just about everybody's mind. I wish the best for the Redskins this year. I really have no biases against Jason Campbell, however, I see a real possibility that Colt will eventually win the job from him. Sooner than later. Campbell has been OK in his short past performance. He has not displayed the quarterback wizardry that Colt does routinely. Unfortunately for Campbell, he will not be afforded any protracted slumps now that Colt has arrived. Right or wrong, the fans will yell to have him pulled in favor of Colt if they begin losing regularly.

Our local media should pick up as many Washington Redskins games if possible. After all, quarterback is a high profile position in football. I will promise to watch the games.

i'm a rams fan but because colt is playing with the redskins and am not a cowboy fan...gotta support the skins too. yes as a previous comment was made, would like our cable network to provide more redskins games so that we can see colt flip the shaka sign every once in a while. rock on colt! go warriors, beat down the gators!

Colt couldn't have gotten a better mentor than Jim Zorn.. Right place at the right time. Reminds me of a skinny Notre Dame QB came into the league and played alongside Dana Mclemore and Jesse Sapolu. Yep, no one gave him a word of confidence, too skinny, played in a run type offense in college, NFL team he went to was on the bottom in defense and offense. Late coach Bill Walsh took to him and mentored him into one of the best ever....

You and I will watch the Washington Redskins games if shown on our local media. Two people responding should convince our local media. One more response and that will make three. Now we will have the majority.

Now I have to watch all the Redskins games besides all the Raiders games. Won't be going out much during football season.

Yeap! First and second string, SUCKS!
but Zorn out of respect for his draft
choice and experience for the two out
of sink players, will run the gammett,
but loose a couple of game's, Colt
will immediately be inserted, by the
man who pay's for his salary cap and
that ain't Zorn. One reason, the owner
hired Zorn, is he can spin him around
a little with decision making, as a
inexperienced head coach. The owner
is desperate, if he can bring back
the old chemistry of Joe Gibbs and
old quarterback, flexibility is in
the making. This team is new and there
will be a alot movement in regards to
player's. Colt is situated in a the
best position a rookie. Just has to be
patient.

good luck to colt and the redskins. funny, i remember watching zorn play in seattle as a kid and he wasn't the most disciplined and technically sound quarterback back in those days, but he did have a never quit attitude. i guess he's grown up as a coach and knows what he wants in his qb's.

Common Sense made an excellent assessment of the situation. Yes, you may be a talented quarterback, but you must be in the right place at the right time. This might be the opportunity for Colt Brennen.

Don't get me wrong... I am a CB fan. He did do pretty good, but against the third and about-to-be-released string players. He will have to get much, much better. Zorn is a great mentor, he'll be another Matt Hasselbeck in three years.

This preseason game proves nothing about the felon Brennan. In a year no one will remember his name. Other than Hawaii fans, and the coed he raped in Colorado.

Yes, because the Jets kicker missed a chip shot,and Favres backup threw a perfect touchdown pass that was dropped,giving those DC Dolts the win.

Let the kid face some of the first and second defenses.
It would be good for him. The kid is good. He need to see what its' all about. He will be a good one.
By the way, the other two guys suck.
