Campbell: More Pluses Than Negatives

Jason Campbell struggled through only his third start today. But I must say I think there are still more pluses than negatives with this kid.

The one interception that was ran back was just a mistake we'll chalk up to inexperience. But the raw talent and his pocket awarness is there. I think he'll go back and look at the film and maybe change a few throws that he let get away too. On a few occasions he avoided the rush to get the ball down the field or he tucked the ball and picked up a key first down.

I think all and all, there are many things Redskins fans can be concerned about going into the off season, but Jason Campbell certainly isn't one of them.

I feel like Campbell gives us a chance to win. Brunell gives us a chance not to lose...

Re: Campbell: More Pluses Than Negatives

that's true. He had a few rookie-esque mistakes today, but i don't think anyone here was expecting him to look like Peyton immediately. His field awareness needs to improve, like that annoying broadcaster was saying, there were times when the Falcons blitzed that Cooley was wide open and Campbell just didn't look his way.

Re: Campbell: More Pluses Than Negatives

JC's negatives came when Atlanta started blitzing...our blitz pickup recognition is a joke...every blitz was a jailbreak.

Re: Campbell: More Pluses Than Negatives

you guys sure Campbell shouldnt go? I mean, looking at the titles of every other thread it seems to be the theme.

and yes Im joking.

We are better than we were two weeks ago, we have a new QB that improving, we should be happy.

we were never going to the playoffs this year...everyone got hope and now they think we should cut the whole team.

relax guys...

Re: Campbell: More Pluses Than Negatives

He needs the rest of this season and a full off-season. He looks a little rusty but he'll be just fine. I just hope they don't go changing the offense on him.

Well we were better than we were two weeks ago, then the first quarter ended and we are now worse off if anything.

I agree with you that people need to relax and that this is not really an issue. I disagree though when you say we are improving. I was most disturbed this year after we got beat by Minnesota. This is nothing compared to that feeling. But, IMO, we have only gotten worse since then.

I have no idea what the problem is on D. By all accounts, last week, they showed that they can still be dominant in this league. Through the first 3 possesions today, they confirmed that last week was not just a mirage. And then completely inexplicibly they descend back into defensive hell. There is no reasoning that accurately explains why for 5 quarters this year the D could be so damn good, and spend the rest of the year being horrible. If anyone figures it out, PLEASE tell me.

Here's why people should heed your message SKINSnCANES: When we went to Campbell and IRed Portis in the same week, it became obvious to me that we were trying to play for the future. So yeah, if we won this week we would have been in the thick of the playoff race...but it would have been for the 6th seed. Would the 6th seed gotten us to our ultimate goal? Not a chance. So in the grand scheme of things, we really aren't going to remember this game. I see us finishing up at 7-9, maybe 6-10 if the G-men beat us.

We know where we are going offensively, but where is this team headed on defense? Thats what needs to be answered these last 4 weeks.

I completely agree with this--jeeze, on almost every blitz they got to Campbell. The last INT he got hit, etc. Give the kid some help!

Re: Campbell: More Pluses Than Negatives

And I agree Gtripp--the offense will come, I think. BUt the D is a big worry.

And, yeah: relax.

Re: Campbell: More Pluses Than Negatives

But you can't just run on third and long. You have to pick up the blitz. It's not a secrete that teams in the NFL blitz!

Re: Campbell: More Pluses Than Negatives

We ran well, but the key offensively was the fact we couldn't get enough plays in the passing game. Sooner or later you need some of those key 3rd down conversions through the air, and it seemed like ATL got in JC's face on every critical passing situation. The pass protection today was very suspect.

Plus when your D gets gashed and you fall behind your hand gets forced a bit, and we had to pass more than they would have liked.

Re: Campbell: More Pluses Than Negatives

I thought Jason Campbell played okay, but he made the rookie mistakes that we should all be expecting. But, it's those mistakes that teaches ya not to make 'em in the future. I like Jason's arm! He'll be okay.

Re: Campbell: More Pluses Than Negatives

Campbell definitely did make some mistakes today, however, that's because it was his third start. He's gonna have days like this. I was pissed about the pick down on the goal line. I think if he doesn't get hit, he makes that throw for the td. The problem on that play was Betts trying to pick up the wrong man. That's where this team misses Clinton Portis the most. Clinton would've eaten that guys lunch.
