Campbell looks GREAT!
 
I'm impressed. He seems to still have the poise he had at Auburn. Two times today I thougt he was going to take off and run, and I still think he should have. The ref's screwed us today and yet we still won :)
However, Saunders play calling has been garbage. Saunders over this season has called conservative run(s) call on third and long. He's even called it when we are in good punt position if we do not get the first down. Today Saunders calls a slant in route to Moss that is 4 yards short of a very important first down??? Moss got slammed as soon as he caught the ball. I've yet to see even decent play calling out of this "700 page play book." Sorry, but I do not like the guy or what he's brought with him.

He did miss some throws today, but I think that's to be expected for a young guy just getting his feet wet. He hasn't had much work with the first teamers so that chemistry level isn't there yet.

I really love his poise, that's something you just can't teach. I think his future is really bright.

As far as the play calling today I think that was exactly what Gibbs wanted, a back to basics approach. Hard nosed defense, a strong running game, and it ended with a win. Hard to argue with that formula. That's Redskins football.

The one that kills me is the one to Lloyd on the cross. I think that was the first time he's seen a receiver running clear like that since college and he got too excited.

The most encouraging thing for me is that he seems to have great field vision. He knows where guys are and where they are going. If his timing and accuracy (which he demonstrated on the Cooley pass) become more consistent he will win many games for us. In fact, he has the potential to join a very elite group of Redskins Qbs. I would say that club has six members at the most. A couple of them are in the HoF.

Now I have to name them:

1. Sammy Baugh (HoF)
2. Sonny Jurgensen(HoF)
3. Bill Kilmer (His record as a starter was like 51 -26 or so)
4. Joe Theismann (SB)
5. Doug Williams (SB)
6. Mark Rypien (SB)

They are listed in chronological order, but I think you could argue that they are in order of greatness as well. Maybe Kilmer and Theismann switch places.

can you imagine the press today with a quarterback like kilmer? boozing all night, and throwing wounded ducks all game

He looks like an NFL QB. That's all we can ask for at this point.

I like the rocket luancher he has attached to his arm

i wish his shorter passes were more accurate :/ that was a problem for him in college too to some extent. it'd be nice to get it fixed though.

so far, so good.

That TD pass to ARE was nuts. He pretty much had to twist his body backwards in order to get around the receiver.
I'm starting to get pretty excited about Campbell now.
Good times ahead.

I agree, that play was very good...unfortunately with a rookie QB we also have the bonehead bad times ahead as well.

You have to be impressed with his passing ability inside the 5. The last two weeks he has 3 TD throws down near the goal line. I think that's where his height really helps him out.

I didnt think JC played very well yesterday but he didnt get rattled and ended up finding a way to win without his best stuff. Thats a good sign.

Re: Campbell looks GREAT!
 
I'm cautiously optimistic about Campbell. He's looked pretty impressive at times. But, at other times he's not been as accurate as I expected him to be. I'm quite pleased, but not thrilled.

His accuracy needs to improve for him to develop into an elite quarterback, but I'm very impressed with his poise and timing. I saw some post game analysis on ESPN that pointed out how Campbell trusted his protection on blitzes, and how important that is for him to be able to make clutch throws. And his ability to hit a receiver in stride is very important because it gives the receiver a better chance to make a play after the catch, like the Cooley TD.

Re: Campbell looks GREAT!
 
I think his accuracy will improve once he establishes more chemistry with his WRs and as he gains more experience in the offense in general.

hard to argue there matty.........thats all i want to see too,redskins football...campbell showed us why he should have been starting from the start but some of his passes were a little high which is expected until he gets really settled in .give him time..i like it though..
