Re: Oh Brother Gibbs Right Choice But Maybe Too Late ,thanks Old Man!

I just thought of the perfect Christmas present! An Ignore Thread feature! Sometimes after a few days I forget that a particular thread is not worth reading so I go back to it. Then I get annoyed at forgetting this was the thread that I was supposed to remember not to waste time going back to.

Re: Oh Brother Gibbs Right Choice But Maybe Too Late ,thanks Old Man!

3rd ID Soldier. Your post is ridiculous. I think their are several obvious reasons as to why putting Campbell in the game instead of Brunell may have been a bad idea. Did it happen to be a good move? Yes, but that's because the rest of the team decided to show up. I agree with Redskin on the idea that Brunell could have won that game too. Let's think of some possible reasons as to why Gibbs was hesitant to put Campbell in. A) We could not get the running game going. Putting a young quarterback with no starts into a team with no running game may turn out to be a disaster. B)Our offensive line was letting too much pressure in. Do you remember what happened to Patrick Ramsey? His first season starting we had no rushing attack with Trung Candidate and he used to get the crap knocked out of him by opposing defenses. That absolutely destroyed his confidence, and there's no way we wanted that to happen to JC C) Historically first year quarterbacks have not done very well in the NFL, unless your name is Marino or Rothlesburger. D) Just because Campbell knew college offenses, does not mean he could necessarily catch onto an NFL offense, especially one as complicated as Al Saunder's. E) Our defense was not showing up until last game, which would cause Campbell to have to pass more because he's playing from behind all the time. Always playing from behind is tough too. I'm glad Campbell is playing now because he is getting experience, but the point is that we won last week because the ENTIRE TEAM played well, it wasn't just because of the QB switch. Who wrote that article, and why would you post such blasphemy?! Are you a Cowboys fan in disguise? Are you in cahoots with Eli Manning?

If the D was playing lights out all year the way they did last week, one can only imagine where we'd be right now. Probably in the thick of the playoff chase, that's for damn sure. Enough with this blaming one or two players, football is not that simple.

Tough thread here!!
I think Gibbs has been criticized plenty, just as the organization as a whole has. Sure, Skins fans have been hesitant to blame him because he got us to the playoffs & is trying to stabilize the team long-term. We know he knows what he’s doing.
What is most annoying about this article, is that if you’re blaming Gibbs for not playing JC till now after only 2 starts, don’t you have to then at least credit him for making the move to get him when no other teams did?

Here's the link by the way

Gibbs made QB change too late • NFL_Czar's Blog - FOX Sports Blogs

In my opinion, Gibbs consistently has taken blame and has been blamed by others. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that Campbell was ready even a month ago.

This article makes no sense whatsoever and this guy obviously pays zero attention to the Redskins.

Gibbs has received plenty of heat from the DC media and he is ALWAYS the first one to point the finger at himself.

And it's not 4 different offenses in 4 years for JC, try 6 of 6.

This guy hasn't even heard of the infamous 700 page playbook, he's off by 200.

What was always strange about the coach’s reluctance to switch to Jason Campbell was that the young quarterback was Joe’s pick in the draft two years ago. It was Gibbs’ decision to use two extra draft picks and his own first-round pick on Campbell.

Campbell was beaten down by the implications that he wasn’t ready to handle the complicated offense of Al Saunders. When a club starts saying that Campbell has had four different offensive coordinators in the last four seasons, well the tag is that he’s not smart enough to handle the playbook. And how backward is that thinking?


You mean you keep playing Mark Brunell because he knows a 500-page playbook better than Campbell? Now, that really is dumb. Isn’t it supposed to be about production, wins and losses and which player gives your team the best chance to win?

When I first met Campbell at the scouting combine, I told him how much Terry Bradshaw loved his arm. He was so thankful that someone recognized his ability. The only way Campbell and Redskins will ever know whether he can compete in the NFL is by playing.



Finally, Gibbs basically has gotten a free pass in Washington because of his past Hall of Fame accomplishments and those three Super Bowls. Everyone has been blamed but him
OH YEAH THIS IS A ARTICLE TAKEN FROM FOX SPORTS!!! I didn't make it up

Oh no, here we go again........

I find that it's helpfull to make it clear to people when you are quoting an article or something that another person said. Often, this will deflect undue critism from you.
Providing links are often a nice way to show that you yourself had nothing to do with the production of an article, especially one that may be met with hostility here on the WP.
Another fine way to help make sure no one mistakes someone else's words for your own is to use the Quote feature, which was kindly provided to us by our Mods. If you're not familiar with this feature, it is a little icon above located above the area where you type and it looks like a thought box from a comic book. When you use this feature your quote will...
