Packers at Redskins: Should Gibbs play Ramsey in an effort to spark this offense?
Yes, it's time for the Redskins to make the switch to Patrick Ramsey. Right now the Redskins' offense doesn't look comfortable. They need a quarterback who can occasionally air it out to keep defenses honest and Brunell isn't doing that. Ramsey may have a strong enough arm to make the deep pass and keep eight men out of the box and from clogging the running lanes for RB Clinton Portis.
