Colt Gets His Chance - review

I finally got to see Colt on the field during the last 7 minutes of the Raiders/Bears game.

Bottom line- Colt did not suck.
To me it was important for him to go and do what he was told to do. And he did that. He did not take unnecessary chances and he executed and did not lose field position when his receivers were covered.
He even had to temper his enthusiasm and let the clock run out at the end of the game.

Good job, Colt!

"As I stated in the Kyle Boller slide, the battle for the third quarterback spot is between Boller and Brennan.
Boller has played pretty well, but Brennan hasn't been given much of a chance to play. He has been given one pass attempt in two games. That pass attempt was a 14-yard completion to fullback Chane Moline (pictured).
If the coaching staff wants to know what this kid can do, they have to get him in the game and let him sling it around. If they don't give him some chances, they'll never know if he can get it done.
I'm hoping as the preseason winds down and the regular approaches, the coaches protect Campbell by giving him only a couple of series per game. This would open up more time for Boller and Brennan to share.
If this happens, the coaches and the fans will finally get a good look at Brennan and he will finally have an opportunity to make his case to be on the final 53-man roster."

Colt Gets His Chance

Today, Colt Brennan is #4 and an Oakland Raider.
This is his big chance to realize his dream as a player in the NFL.

The stars have aligned, opportunities opened and he has been re-teamed with Jason Campbell and Rock Cartwright from the Redskins and his Warrior center Samson Satele.

Tomorrow Colt will most likely play in the preseason game -vs- the Dallas Cowboys.
Then he will see what happens next.
Good luck, Colt, your future is in your hands.
