Does Campbell end the 'Cover 2' excuse?

For weeks we've been hearing MB and Gibbs repeatedly say they can't go deep because opposing defenses have played cover 2 or a 2 deep safety shell so the dump offs were 'taking what was available'. Everyone knows the way to beat a cover 2 is throwing to the deep middle or corner routes, 2 routes Brunell didn't have the arm strength or confidence to throw. With JC taking the reins should we see more of those throws against that coverage?

Sure we'll see more throws against coverage, and we'll see a lot more interceptions too.

Yeah, it seems like the Redskins are the only team in the NFL who's offense is completely ineffective when the opponent is in a Cover 2.

Because REALITY is that now that MB is benched we have NO shot at the playoffs. This is all going to be about getting JC ready for next year, and I understand that. But it still blows for this year.

I hate to sound blindly optimistic, but look at the nfc, the division schedule & we have a chance. granted, it will take winning 6 of 7 at least, but its still a chance. the D has started to gell, since that stallworth td, & just maybe JC is good enough to get the O to score 17 - 20 a game. Other teams are flailing too in the nfc. We're only 3 games out of 1st & 2 back from the cowpokes, who also happen to be 1-3 in the div.
What if we win 2 in a row, are 5-6 (sound familiar?) and the div. leader is 6-5? Is it still over?

oh, and yes, the middle of the field is now an option. Look for ARE to get some quick catches over the middle, something we haven't seen from him all year cause MB couldn't get it to him.

MB didnt' throw it to him because he was in coverage. JC will throw it, and we'll see more interceptions during the next 6 weeks than we have all year. He'll learn from that experience, I'm sure.

Is it because Brunell is benched or because CAMPBELL is starting? Honestly, this is the PERFECT time to put in Campbell. On the road, against a traditionally tame stadium, against a struggling team, is as favorable an environment you could ask for. If he plays well and gets his NFL legs under him, he returns home for a three game homestand in which the Redskins (still mathematically alive) will prove to us if they're up for another miracle finish or not.
