Seven Steps to Redskins Renewal

There have been a lot of posts about the Redskins sucking. I came up with seven simple steps that if followed, will help Redskin fans to deal our current situation. Follow these simple steps and the remainder of the season won't seem that bad.

Seven Steps to Redskin Renewal

1. Admit that the 2006 Washington Redskins will not make the playoffs.

2. Admit that the 2006 Washington Redskins are not that good.

3. Admit that the 2006 Washington Redskin organization has not put the team in the best position to win football games.

4. Accept that for the remainder of the season, the 2006 Washington Redskins are in a rebuilding mode.

5. Accept that for the remainder of the season, the fans should expect improvement, not necessarily wins.

6. Accept that for the remainder of the season, Jason Campbell at times will look like a rookie.

7. Trust that Joe Gibbs and his staff will access the team's strengths and weaknesses and adjust in the offseason accordingly.

This is a big one. Not as much for this particular forum, since I think about 90% of Warpath members realize this, but a lot of the general Redskins fanbase(at least the vocal fans that call in to Redskins radio shows) are talking about drafting Quinn because Campbell hasn't shown anything. That kind of thinking is just plain stupid...

A couple of weeks too late with this no?

By the way, we were officially eliminated from the playoffs yesterday and we also locked up the basement of the East. Props to us!

#7: Most qb's take a couple of years to develop, we might be expecting too much too quick.

You are right Matty, this post is a little late, but it seems as though some of the posters are still expecting wins.

I was impressed by Susssss...uh.....our kicker who kicked for us this past weekend. If we can continue to hit field goals from 40+, then I think we will have a kicker, but it will take the rest of the season to evaluate him.

Sushi or whatever-the-hell-his-name-is has looked pretty good so far. His accuracy is good and his kickoff depth is very good.

You are so right here, and I posted to this effect earlier, but take a look at Peyton Manning's first season:

+----------+--------------------------+----------------+
| TOTAL | 326 575 3739 26 28 | 15 62 0 |
+----------+--------------------------+----------------+

And he came in as the starter! Look at some of the truly awful games there, and note that the Colts went 3-13 that year.

this all assumes that we change our training camp ways and improve our depth dramatically, or else the injuries could be worse next year.

Re: Seven Steps to Redskins Renewal

Note that in Manning's first season he completed only 56% of his passes (Campbell currently completing 52%) and threw more INT's than TD's (Campbell currently 6 TD's / 5 INT's).

Campbell has attempted 122 passes in 4 games, Manning attempted 575 in 17 games. Based on Jason's current rate of atts/cmps/TD's/INT's, if he played a full 17 game season at the current pace, his line would be:

268 comp / 519 att / 3010yd/ 25 TD / 21 INT

Now ask yourself if you could live with those numbers from a first year QB?

Re: Seven Steps to Redskins Renewal

Hey, believe it or not, that's the projection based on the way he's played over 4 games. And one would expect him to get better as time goes on, which isn't even accounted for.

Am I saying Campbell is going to be the next Peyton Manning? Uhh, no. (Although I wouldn't mind.) But what I am saying is anyone who is already up in arms that Campbell hasn't made an impact are the ones who are really smoking something.

Very few 1st year QB's ever have that kind of success right away.
