Colt Brennan - Product of the system or great QB?

Page 3 of I was just sitting here thinking, is Colt Brennan a really, really good QB or is he just a product of the sling-it-everywhere-at-any-time offense? Pers... 36 comments | 935 Views | Go to page 1 →

    Appy State, Florida are more Zone/Option type of teams that also run a lot of no back stuff.
    Texas Tech is from the Mumme Air Raid which is Lavell Edwards BYU offense only out of the gun. Even Tech is running the ball more
    Hawaii is a direct decendant of the old Mouse Davis Run+Shoot. Houston, SMU etc used to run it. It's the same thing the old Houston Oilers used to run with Warren Moon back in the day when they hung so many points. Teams got away from it because of the lack of ability to run the ball especially in the red zone. Hawaii runs it as well as you can run it and it's a unique situation recruiting there.
    The spread offense gets thrown around a lot but there are many different versions.
    There is also the Texas/WVU spread with the zone read and triple option stuff.
    It's all about getting numbers and speed in space.

    Really?

    A LOT of NFL scouts had him as the 3rd QB to be taken in the draft if he came out and everything I have read says he has arm comparable to Favre and a much smarter player than Russell. SO he is a little better than "above Avg"

    Low 1st, early 2nd round pick. I think he'll be pretty good in the NFL personally.

    The question is not how far. The question is, do you possess the constitution, the depth of faith, to go as far as is needed?

    Well, the average college QB doesn't make it in the NFL so I guess they are thinking about the same thing as me. And I still think that there are a handful of better QB's in the country, not many, but there are some that I think would do better at Hawaii.

    I'm sure he's very skilled but it's the system that gets him the notoriety. No different than AWare/Klingler from Houston or Kinsgberry/Cumby from TexasTech, Couch/Bonner from UK, or any Florida Qb.

    Where did Brennan sign originally? For some reason USC pops into my head.

    I thought it was Colorado but I could be wrong.
