Colt Brennan Birth Of an NFL Superstar In D.C.

Travis EvansCorrespondent IMay 6, 2009

Last preseason Colt Brennan got to show why he had set and broke records during his time in Hawaii. Brennan came in and handled the Colts and won the Hall Of Fame Game by himself. Here's how he fared last preseason.

Brennan may have played against players who also are third and fourth stringers, but if this is the case then how come every year there aren't Brennan type players winning and throwing like he did?

There is one flaw with his numbers, (the sack column is at eight) but he was behind third and fourth string linemen so of course this was bound to happen. The completion percentage is great though. Colt had one of the best debuts ever according to John Madden.

Brennan got some breaks with some of the throws he was making, but he had bright spots when he would hit receivers in stride down the sideline (something Jason Campbell can't do). Also he had confidence telling players on the sideline before he led the game winning drive versus the Jets that he was going to win the game.

This preseason he will most likely take the second string role from Todd Collins due to age and salary cap room. Now with that said Brennan will need to amaze to take the starting role, but most likely will have to wait one more season to show all the other 31 teams why you don't pass on a 131 career TD QB.

Brennan has made great strides in his throwing motion and in his footwork. He also has impressed versus first string defenses in OTA's and in mini camp.

Brennan will not disappoint when he starts this preseason against second stringers and maybe some first string defenses. Look to hear alot about him this preseason, thus the QB controversy will begin again in D.C.

Lets hope that Brennan continues to impress and stays in D.C. until he is ready to take the starting job from Jason Campbell.
