Re: Campbell looks GREAT!

I love the fact he called the last play without getting it from the sidelines. Apparently some guys in the huddle knew and some didn't (In Cooley's post game interview he was genuinely surprised when he found out that JC's earpiece had cut out and JC just pulled a play based on the package sent in).
Didn't waste a timeout, didn't panic, just read the play and made it work.(The play was designed for the first read to be the outside receivers, THEN Cooley).

Very impressive. Good pocket presence, made a nice little scramble, missed some throws. Overall, not much drop-off from Brunell and much much more room for growth.

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.

How do you know that Moss ran the correct route. Maybe the defender forced the play inside.

Re: Campbell looks GREAT!

Wow!! I really like this guy. He plays with such (cliche) Poise. He never really seems to get rattled, one thing I remember from OTAS and mini camp was hoe calm he is, I think it is something we can all see now. I know he's young and it was his second start but this guy does not look like a bust to me.

One more thing I also think this home stand is great for him. It should help his coinfedence and his timing. Hail to the SKINS!!!

Re: Campbell looks GREAT!

The game plan was simplifyed for him in this game because they wanted to get back to running the football with success, and for the most part they accomplished that. They didn't want him throwing the ball all over the place and getting in trouble with Carolina's defense. They ran the ball, controlled the tempo, and stopped the run on defense. The one INT he did throw, he was trying to give Moss an opportunity to make a play.

Re: Campbell looks GREAT!

Cooley catches 89 of Campbell's 118 yards passing. Yet Cooley is a distracted non-Redskin and Campbell is a hero. Go figure. I think Phx has seen way too much Cardinals football.

Look. You and I both know the reason they won is that we didn't watch the game together

Never again. At least not until they're officially eliminated.

Re: Campbell looks GREAT!

FWIW I think Campbell has looked pretty good all things considered. Yesterday he had some drops that would have helped his #'s a little. Also, we ran the ball alot too. He missed a few things but i'm not overly concerned about that.

I think what I wanted to see was some flashes that we have a QB here. A couple of examples...
First play at TB-perfect throw
Play at TB which he avoided the sack and threw a perfect ball to JT
2 td's at Tb- both were pretty impressive
Throw to Cooley that was dropped
TD to ARE and Cooley, nice throws

He seems to have good pocket presence and i'm pretty impressed. He is going to have some rough days, but that's to be expected.

Re: Campbell looks GREAT!

nothing's better than winning while learning. the defense really let us down in tampa, and while campbell was a bit shaky (accuracy wise), he did enough to outscore the panthers.

Re: Campbell looks GREAT!

Sure, drops happen, but MAN I wanted Cooley to haul in that one TD and for Campbell to throw a better pass to Lloyd. I REALLY want to see Lloyd get his first TD.

Re: Campbell looks GREAT!

if you noticed, his throws were off, and he was slightly tentative in the third quarter, until he got POPPED by peppers, which took away the jitters and campbell followed it up with some great throws. I noticed some of the great camera angles revealing to us where his eyes were throughout the play on the replay. He was checking every receiver very quickly and not focusing in on anyone in particular, which definitely indicates good field vision. His only weakness yesterday was he spotted his wideouts too late during their mid range outrouts and that led to his throws being too high and out of bounds. He could have hit them in stride if he identified the separation earlier, but he made up for it with his pass to cooley, perfectly in stride. All things that he can easily improve on over time. But the most important aspects in a young player....poise, confidence, and ability are all there.

Re: Campbell looks GREAT!

Didnt play great but getting better. JC is so much of a upgrade than brunell. It a shame that Gibbs had to stay with that old broken down Qb for so long killing this season. It was like 2004 all over again. Lets go JC keep it going.

Same here. He over threw the receivers on several occasions and made a poor mistake on that deep bomb, but he came back and called that TD play to Cooley and handled himself nicely. He is a very smart kid and I think he played pretty good yesterday, but not great.
