Colt Brennan’s stock reportedly fell in the 2008 draft because of his attitude as much as his funky throwing motion.
After a great rookie preseason and a strong start to his second training camp, Brennan was puffing his chest out and thinking he could swipe Todd Collins’ job as the team’s backup quarterback. Just a few humbling weeks later, Brennan is on the roster bubble.
Brennan has completed only 13-of-27 passes with one touchdown, three interceptions, and seven sacks in three preseason games and could lose his job as Washington’s third quarterback to Chase Daniel.
And it sounds like Brennan’s attitude has been necessarily adjusted, according to Jason Reid of the Washington Post: “The swagger Brennan displayed before camp and preseason has been
replaced by outward humility, which has been a refreshing change to
some in the organization who thought the kid used to be way too
arrogant for someone who had accomplished, well, nothing,” Reid wrote.
If there are too many in the organization that share this belief, the arrogance that cost Brennan some spots in the draft could also cost him a job. (On the bright side, this could free Brennan up for some quality time with Yoko Romo.)
