Clayton is usually pretty on point. If I get a chance this afternoon, I'll try to find out if he meant something else.

Just imagine - if JC actually had a legitmate #2 reciever how much better he would look.

Campbell didn't have a great pocket presence in his first year, but he was in a tough spot. Now, this is his team and his time to prove his ability.



What else do you expect the players to say?:smashfrea

Compared to what else we have, I'll live with JC's "lack of pocket presence". Brunell practically tap dances back there and Collins just sucks.

Re: ESPN: What to watch in the NFC

His pocket presence was fine. His huddle presence needs to be Theismannized by about 15%. Laid back is for surfers and potheads. He needs to get a little more vocal with certain receivers who looked lost and will remain nameless because you guys know who I mean anyway.

Yeah he is pretty good with stuff like that. Maybe he looked at Campbell's completion percentage and assumed it correlated with pocket presence even though that makes no sense at all.

They are the kings of suck. Collins may know the offense but that doesnt do you any good when you like to throw the ball to defensive lineman.

Todd Collins: nominated for douche-bag of the decade

None. Thats called research. Research is for nerds and lesser wimps. Not for badass sportswriters.

Or so the legend goes.

It's not like me and Clayton are drinking buddies or anything like that. In fact, usually when I talk to him it's through another person who works on NFL programming.

That said, I never got a chance today to reach out to him

Re: ESPN: What to watch in the NFC

Here's what to watch for at ESBM: Maybe one day they'll hire a sportswriter who actually knows something about football. The thing that kills me about this is during Campbell's FIRST training camp I heard rumblings that he was the best QB then. (Our QBs were Ramsey, Brunell, & Campbell in that order.) Knowing what we now know, this does not seem hard to believe. Unless, of course, you're just writing crap because you get paid to...
