I've never seen him play. All I know is that he was a 7th round draft pick of the Denver Broncos a couple of years back. So I decided to start looking around the net, so I could get a good understanding of what we have in Bradlee Van Pelt.

Seems we got ourselves a little Bad Ass (http://espn.go.com/ncf/bowls02/s/liberty_vanpelt.html).

Van Pelt to start for Colorado State
Associated Press

FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- Colorado State University quarterback Bradlee Van Pelt will start at the AXA Liberty Bowl, despite his arrest on a charge of verbal harassment.

Van Pelt was placed on probation last week after his arrest for an argument outside a bar. Because Van Pelt is on probation, further transgressions would result in more severe punishment.

Coach Sonny Lubick said the arrest on the misdemeanor charge, Van Pelt's first, did not warrant a suspension.

Lubick's decision came after CSU's judicial affairs department decided the arrest wasn't serious enough to conduct a hearing.

The school likely will require Van Pelt to attend an alcohol and drug awareness class or anger-management class.

Lubick said he would make clear that similar behavior will not be tolerated.

"Our players know that they cannot put the program in a bad light by getting involved in police matters, even if they don't really do anything wrong,'' Lubick said Tuesday.

Van Pelt was the Mountain West Conference's offensive player of the year this season.

The Rams face TCU at the Liberty Bowl on Dec. 31.

Injured fullback Cecil Sapp, cornerback Dexter Wynn and offensive guard Albert Bimper were all expected to play in the bowl game.

Bradlee Van Pelt will not make the team next season. Not sure if he'll be offered a contract to go into camp.

Cheesy video, but good content. I used to watch a lot of Van Pelt while he was at CSU. The WAC games used to be a lot of fun to watch late on Saturday nights when I was 3 sheets in to the wind and the teams were airing it out.

They still love the guy in CO. I hope he gets to stay around.

Wait a minute Van Pelt was a good QB but it was in the MWC .

There TK .... I'm betting that this post was to get people to cut down Van Pelt and then the similarities between him and Carr were going to be unveiled .

ahhh finally some love for Van Pelt. i saw the video and was impressed with it. he reminds me of Vince on how he played in college. My gut feeling says we wont draft a QB because of so many QB's on our roster. I say give Van Pelt a chance not Carr....

That is my usual M.O., but not this time.

I was just trying to find some news on him...... how he played in College.... what people thought of him before he came into the NFL.

I saw the thing about him flipping off the crowd, and the "suspension" I thought it was odd that we'd have this "bad ass" on our team.

I still don't know how he compares to David....

Yeah video was cheesy but it's refreshing to see someone who HAS a personality, instead of DC's ..."uhhhh, welll, uhhhh" and people said VY was the dumb one. :um:

But Sage should get a shot at starting.

Bradlee Van Pelt
Position: Quarterback/Fullback
College: Colorado State
Height: 6-2
Weight: 231
Hometown: Santa Barbara, Calif.

Analysis | Agility | High School | Personal

OVERVIEW
Rare breed of athlete who has a powerful arm, is built like a linebacker and can run with the ball like a power back Came to the Rams after spending the 1999 season at Michigan State Missed two years of football (sat out 2000 under NCAA transfer rules) before getting a chance to play The son of former New York Giants All-Pro linebacker, Brad Van Pelt, Bradlee moved into the starting lineup after the third game of the 2001 season He started the next 34 games of his 38-game career, joining Bowling Green's Josh Harris (7,503 passing, 2,473 rushing) as only the eighth and ninth players in NCAA Division I-A history to throw for over 4,000 yards and rush for over 2,000 yards in a career Completed 424 of 778 passes (54.5 percent) for 6,165 yards, 37 touchdowns and 30 interceptions Only Moses Moreno (6,689, 1994-97), Terry Nugent (7,103, 1980-83) and Kelly Stouffer (7,141, 1984-86) threw for more yards in a career for the Rams Ranks 19th all-time among NCAA Division I-A quarterbacks in rushing, carrying 420 times for 2,274 yards (5.4 avg.) and 25 touchdowns His 2,274 yards rank ninth on the school's career-record list Set a Rams' career record as he amassed 8,439 yards in total offense, surpassing the previous mark of 7,147 yards by Anthony Hill (1991-93).
ANALYSIS
Positives: Has good size, naturally cut upper and lower body muscles and the potential for additional body growth Shows good quickness out from the center and back to his set-up point, displaying the nimble feet needed to move and adjust to pressure Shows adequate quickness in his release point Cool under pressure and has the strength to break arm tackles when flushed out of the pocket Good vocal leader who makes a lot of checks and calls at the line of scrimmage Accurate on his short and intermediate tosses Has natural running skills that were highlighted in the Rams' scheme, which was set up for him to run whenever he could Shows good flexibility and change of direction agility when on the move Could shift to another position (possibly fullback) at the pro level because of his ability to run with the ball.
Negatives: Has only adequate height for the quarterback position Operated mostly from the shotgun and did a lot of three- and five-step drops when lined up under center Throws with a arm motion and has only adequate arm strength (long ball tends to sail) Will play in the scheme, but looks to run too often Has marginal control and accuracy, as he fails to hit his receivers in stride and rarely finds the soft spot in the zone His long touch and accuracy are marginal, as the receivers have to adjust too much on his deep ball Seems to lock on to his primary target too much and will run when that receiver is not open Relies too much on his athletic ability and needs a complete refinement of his passing mechanics, or he will have need to move to another position Lacks the foot speed to be an effective tailback, but his power, size and leg drive could see him shift to fullback at the next level Has ball security issues, as his running style leaves the ball too exposed, resulting in a very high amount of turnovers (26 fumbles in three years).

AGILITY TESTS
4.77 in the 40-yard dash 350-pound bench press 460-pound squat 310-pound power clean 32-inch vertical jump 9-foot-7 broad jump 4.15 20-yard shuttle 6.91 three-cone drill 30 5/8-inch arm length 9 5/8-inch hands Right-handed.

ABC!!

Considering the fact that DC was limted to handing off the ball in the latter part of the season, nearly any QB could be inserted and perform just as well under those curcumstances.

Carr's hands were tied to prevent him from damaging the team, and it worked to a degree.

As someone who lives in Colorado, I have to say it was fun to watch Bradlee both for the Rams and the Broncos (in preseason). He reminded me a lot of an old Oiler back-up by the name of Bucky Richardson - a fan favorite every preseason. Bradlee is a tough son of a gun who will do whatever it takes to move the chains. It isn't always pretty, but he usually got the job done. I haven't seen that commitment from Carr. It would be nice to have someone on the roster who could bring that quality to the team.

I'm with you on this one, I remember him playing preseason and not looking too bad...most memorable would be the preseason game last year against the Texans. He seems a little rough around the edges style wise, but he sure isn't afraid to get out of the pocket, run the ball, and take a HIT if it means moving the ball.I say give him a chance to compete for the job. :twocents:

No way... those negatives sound way too much like Carr, but with a weaker arm

& since we are going to be short a starting QB next year, we should re-sign Bradlee to groom.

Remember he didn't arrive until way late in the season. I remember watching him at CSU. He is a little hard a**. I say give him a shot. Don't make him the starter, but give him a shot in training camp.
