Re: Jason Campbell

We did not need to waste our 1st round pick on Campbell. We could have traded for a 2nd round pick and got him easily. Look who picked after us. Seattle, Atlanta, SD, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Philly, and NE. None of these teams would have picked up Campbell. We could have picked up Heath Miller!! I think he would have helped our offense a lot more now and in the future than Campbell.

Maybe they tried to trade down but didn't have any takers...no one knows but the FO I guess...

Re: Jason Campbell

Perhaps in 2-3 years we'll be applauding this selection, right now it doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

Only time will tell.

Perhaps Ramsey isn't the answer.

Perhaps this selection was more of a move directed towards Brunell's sharp decline and the likelihood he won't be here after next season rather than a shot at Ramsey.

It's all in Ramsey's hands now. He can step up to the pressure and competition and shine, or he could wilt under the same pressure and competition.

Judging by the length of the first round, seems like a lot of teams were trying to move down, problem was there wasn't anybody on the board that excited anyone enough to move up.

A lot of teams were talking, nobody wanted any action though.

I agree with that thought. Maybe its more of a move to help out if Brunell really has lost it(he has).

I really dont think Gibbs will start him this year unless there are some broken bones. So in the long term this was a good call. Plus he is most likely going to take over after Ramsey leaves.

What does this mean for Timmy Hasselbeck?

It has got to mean he is off the roster. Which I find a shame because I think he could be a servicable backup.
Mark B is the one on the roster that is a blackhole he has never shown me much.


I wonder what Campell thinks about going to a team that always seems in some sort of chaos and hasn't developed or had a decent QB in a dozen years.

Re: Jason Campbell

dont compare campbell to culpepper, brooks, mcnair and ... just because he is black.

ramsey is gone next year(i believe his contract is up). if ramsey plays great, we cant afford to keep him and ramsey probably hates the organization. if ramsey bombs, he will just go on to another team.
either way, he is gone after next year.

the best we can hope for is a good ramsey year, then we put the transition or franchise tag on him and we get back a #1 pick for him.

also, we should trade gardner and hasselbeck for any picks. we dont need hasselbeck this year and its time to move on with gardner(even though i like him )

Re: Do you approve of the Jason Campbell pick?

It won't help the cause this year, but the kid has the tools to be molded by a qb coach who had a somewhat similarly talented qb recently(musgrave-leftwich). Ramsey will be the qb this year, but if Cambell makes good progress over the next 15 monthes or so, it could make the future choice of the starting qb a bit of a mystery.

If this doesn't pan out, this could turn into one of the skins worst draft decisions ever cuz of all the picks used to bring him into the fold.

Re: Do you approve of the Jason Campbell pick?

I can't vote yes or no. I can easily justify the pick to myself and support my team's decision, but I don't have all the facts. Its almost like discussing the Iraqi War. Everyone has all the opinions, but no one has all the facts.

I'm comfortable with bringing him in, I just dont know if our first rounder next year will be worth it, but who knows, maybe this kid is the next McNabb. boy that'd be nice

We need to document the yeh's vs. the ney's concerning Campbell

I wish we could archive all the negative / postive comments on Campbell to bring up again in a couple of years. When he's the starting QB who gets us back into the playoffs using his abilities on Gibbs' beloved bootlegs, we could dig up all the "Gibbs is an idiot" and "so and so is smoking crack comments". If he is the next Brunell failure, we could dig up the "he'll be ok" or "we need a decent backup to Ramsey" comments. BTW, I'm guessing he's going to turn out to be just fine. Log it!

To me it makes sense. If Ramsey doesn't produce, then draft a QB next year? Gibbs doesn't have that long. Might as well have a backup plan because clearly Brunell and Hasse are not the answer.

Re: We need to document the yeh's vs. the ney's concerning Campbell

Well I really don't know what to make of it. I hope it works out but what the Skins have done over the years in the draft have been very poor. Even when they get it right they push the guy out of town or he is a bad guy not a true Redskin! The truth of it all is that those days may never be back!!!! Players like Arrington or Taylor are hired guns not true Redskins. I would have traded both for players in this draft that wanted to be here if I was running things. With no let down and even better!!!!! I know you all think these two walk on water but they don't like it here, they don't make the money they wanted[that gun at thier head when they signed should be reported!] or what ever the reason. I don't have time for guys like this....piss off and get someone who wants to be here!

taylor doesnt have a choice, he will play and become a pro bowler this year
arrington will stay hurt and sneak around making his millions and eventually come back
campbell will play very little this season (when ramsey agervates something) and will take over ramsey next year if we fail under PR

I don't care how good Campbell ends up being, I'm still against the pick. I don't think the pick sabotaged the Redskins...just Patrick Ramsey.
