Brennan would destroy Chang in any roster battle, barring injury. Having seen both at Hawaii, it's not even close.

I do feel glad that my gut instincts were pretty good watching UH with Brennan: Brennan looked like a good college QB, but his receivers were way underrated. I knew at least one of them would end up as a real NFL receiver, if not more, although I wasn't sure which one because it's hard to tell who's drawing attention with awful WAC camera feeds.

I was amazed when Brennan was drafted and Bess and Grice-Mullen weren't - obviously Bess ended up being the only serious NFL-quality player on the offense.

I think I'd rather have Beck on my roster than John Beck. A lot of talent and really came through with at least one classic album in Odelay. You could do worse with a second round pick.
