Any update on Campbell?

Has anyone heard anything about the progress of Jason Campbell. Any feelings on when he will be ready, if ever?

Gibbs would not have traded a way a #1 to get a guy , sign him to a 5 year contract and have him sit 2 years. Judging from the preseason, I think this guy is a can't miss prospect.

Athletically: A 6'5 guy with scrambling ablility and a bullet for an arm. AND he prefers to stay in the pocket, where he can have great success staring over the D's. His throws look effortless.

Mentally: He is humble and hard-working out of Taylorsville, Mississipi. He definitely had a lot of vitamin C growing up, because he is Cool, Calm, and Collected.

Re: Any update on Campbell?

This is what gibbs said in his press conference today:

Continued Gibbs: "We see a lot in practice. My impression is that he's very accurate. I think he's going to be a guy that can really roam with a football. I think he's going to make plays with his feet. I think he has a sense of what the pocket is. He'll slide. He's going to be hard to sack because he's so big. We've seen a lot out of him.

"Now, he needs to play. We'll get into that. I laughingly told him, 'Take the hat off and throw it away. You're getting ready to go work. You're going to have to earn your money now.' Carlos Rogers was yelling at him, too. He said, 'I told my buddy that he has to start earning his money. The rest of us are out there playing.' Anyway, I think Jason had a year that was probably good for him. He got to hear it, see it and go through it. He probably learned a lot."


It sounds like he'll be playing alot more. I'm excited to see what he can do. Ramsey is definitely gone.

We drafted the guy, and all I hear is what he's not.....if the coaching staff (and since everyone in hear live a die on Gibb's word) then we should believe that this kid has sit back a year, not thrown into the fire and learned something, he's out first rounder behind rogers last year.....its time we put faith in our future.....lets base it on the fact that Gibb's think he's ready

Re: Any update on Campbell?

Here's a link to the complete article on what Gibbs thinks of Campbell - it's about halfway down, first half is about Brunell.

Redskins.com: Gibbs on Campbell

It sounds encouraging. Not to read way to much into it, but it sounds to me like Gibbs has had him learning alot this past year and he might be in soon. I'd expect to see alot more of him during preseason games in the very least. Actually beating out Brunell/Ramsey for the job looks like a bit of a long shot, but who knows.

I'd love to see someone young and with alot of potential leading the team. I know Brunell did a great job this season and he offers the experience and maturity of an older player, but it always bothers me in the back of my mind that we know he's not around much longer. He's just a short-term solution.

I can't wait for the day when the Redskins return to the status of a real NFL powerhouse with CONSISTENCY at as many positions as possible. That means a franchise QB who will be with us most of his career, not shuffling someone new in every season.

I think that might be asking just a tad too much of a first year starting quarterback. I think the long term success of the franchise probably depends on Jason Campbell, but in all likelihood he will not enter into the fray next season and lead the team to the Super Bowl. I suspect that if Campbell is starting next season then the team might struggle and even miss out on the Playoffs. It will be in subsequent seasons that we will really reap the benefits of starting Campbell. I could be wrong, I mean Eli Manning and Chris Simms (2nd and 3rd year qbs respectively) did lead their teams to division championships (and first round losses) this season. I just hope that we as fans can look down the road far enough to see that if Jason Campbell is starting - and probably struggling - it is for the long-term good of the team. Hopefully we will not get down on him and start calling for Brunell after he throws a couple of INTs and loses us a game...I worry that doing so would almost certainly hinder his development...hopefully I'm worrying for no reason here and the team can lean on Portis for another year until Campbell is really ready to step up. I guess this is all premature until we find out who the starting QB is going to be. Though I love Mark, the more I think about it the more I think that it really needs to be Campbell. We shall see.

I disagree that Brunell did a "great" job this season. He was adequate and inconsistent.
I think they made it to the playoffs because Gibbs decided to take the ball out of his hands.

You can add Ben Roethlisberger to the list with Eli Manning and Chris Simms. Roethlisberger is definitely an exception, not the rule, as most QBs don't have a 98.6 QB rating their first two years.

I'd say Simms and Manning haven't been spectacular, but their teams DID make it to the playoffs and I don't think either are solely to blame for their teams getting knocked out of the playoffs.

There are alot of teams starting young QBs, some with very little success. Alex Smith has been absolutely destroyed in his starts, though he is surrounded by a lousy team.

I think we have the talent in place in all the other positions on the offense (gratned we need a few good signings this offseason) that we wouldn't be throwing Campbell to the dogs (a la Alex Smith). You never know how he's going to do until you try him out, and I for one wouldn't mind seeing him sooner rather than later.

I trust whatever decisions Coach Gibbs makes, as he knows a hell of alot more about quarterbacking than I do. I guess my point is I really don't see any compelling reasons to NOT start Campbell sooner rather than later.

Re: Any update on Campbell?

Gibbs never says anything negative abotu a player. The guy could be killing our season(hint:2004) and Gibbs would insist he is fighting his guts out. I love the coach but I'll believe Campbell is the goods when I see it with my eyes. I have no reason to think he isn' though so that is good.

Re: Any update on Campbell?

I think I'm pretty impressed with 23 TDs and 10 INTs from Mark Brunell this year, considering he had no second WR to speak of. If you add a second WR who is worth a damn, I could see 28 TDs and 12 INTs next season.

I don't see Campbell performing that well in his first year. Campbell may be capable of getting to 28 TDs due to the accuracy that Gibbs trumpets. But a young QB starting for his first year in the league is likely to throw a lot more than 10-12 INTs.

I will certainly keep an open mind and give Campbell a chance to show he deserves to start, but at this point I feel very comfortable with Brunell as the starter next season. I firmly believe our vet QB is not the problem keeping us from getting to the Super Bowl. In my opinion, the primary problem is WR.
