Brunell is good for one kind of team: the kind the Skins fielded last year, when the defense stops everyone, the run game is unstoppable, and he is rarely called on to win a game. In these cases, all he has to do is provide a tangible air threat (Brunell to Moss) to prevent 8 and 9-in the box. But this is not that kind of team at all.
The defense doesn't win games, it loses them, and the main problem is the secondary. If I had to blame this season on two things, I'd say "Brunell couldn't win games, and he needed to because the secondary was beyond bad." For this reason, the only chance to win is with a QB who can put up 30 or give up 14 on interceptions returned for TDs. The odds of winning with Campbell are a solid 50/50 (either you'll eek it our or he'll blow it horrendously) and with Brunell are about 25/75 (He won't ever lose a game that's going well, but the defense only comes out to play 3/4 of the time).
The run game works, the run D works reasonably well, the receivers run their routes, the Special teams is superb, and of course the coaching is above average. That's my take.
Skins fan through thick and thin.
