I have seen Campbell several times make a huge mistake come fourth quarter in tight games. The longer he's on the feild the worse he gets.

Re: Campbell's Shortcoming

all i can say is, thanks eli.

out of the 13 QBs that have started every game this year, eli is by far the worst in a whole bunch of categories, which is good, cause campbell is 12th in most of them :/ .

It's also no coincidence that Garrard threw his first INT last week when the Jags were placed in a position where they had to pass the ball and couldn't rely on the run game. This is also Garrard's 6th season. Last season, in 10 games started, Garrard threw 10 tds/9 ints, had 4 fumbles, 2 lost. I'm confident Jason will come around.

Harrington has had a pretty good season, all things considered. He has completed 61.5% of his passes and has NEVER fumbled despite being sacked 32 times. That's ball security.

He hasn't gotten noticed because he has only thrown for 7 TDs. And it's hard to fault him for that given their WR play.

Re: Campbell's Shortcoming

Beat me to it, Payne. More good stuff from JLC--the man is on a roll.

This strikes me as a moot argument right now--we're locked into JC for the next few seasons at least--we're not going after another QB, even if the negative comments are correct, which I doubt--with all the other needs we have.

I can only speak for myself and can't speak on the comments others have made, but to criticize Campbell is certainly not why I started the thread.

The point of this thread was to point out that Campbell is exhibiting behaviors typical of young QBs - not totally careful with the ball. It was also to say that Campbell will get a lot better as he learns to control this.

Mainly though, my point was nobody should get too down on the young fella because that's what he is, young. He's making the mistakes you expect to see a young QB make - and we shouldn't expect too much of him so soon. He'll only get better, and hopefully he improves and doesn't go the way of Patrick Ramsey.

He hasn't gotten noticed because he was benched twice and they are awful.. I can't give any list that Joey Harrington is near the leaders in any credibility, sorry.

Paintrain, what is hard to understand here. This is not some sort of ranking of QBs. It's not to say that Joey Harrington is a top 5 QB in the league.

It simply says that Joey Harrington has taken care of the ball really well. It says NOTHING about his ability to make throws or move the ball.

The reason I'm posting it isn't to bring up a debate on where the QBs rank. I'm bringing it up because it shows that Campbell is turning the ball over a lot.

That by no means indicates he's a bad QB. It's just A PART of his game he needs to work on.

that couldn't possibly be further from the truth. Go back and look at the Eagles game, 2nd week. the dallas game, giants game. the kid is very composed under pressure. I have no idea who you are watching. Composure is never the issue with him. accuracy maybe, composure, no way

Re: Campbell's Shortcoming

I know that we come in here to vent, but in a season full of disappointments I thought Campbell was one of the few bright spots. Every young qb has growing pains, did we really expect Campbell to be Tom Brady this year? Does JC need to learn to tuck the ball away, yes. But the line also needs to do its job, they don't get a free pass in this. Yes, Campbell has a lot to learn, but he's learning and wasn't that what this year was about? I hear all the talk about his peers, but his peers don't play for us, JC does. And I see growth, I don't see his turnvoers as him developing any bad habits, I see a guy who is trying to do what he can to win games. And that, like everything else, is something that you learn to do. Plus, its not like he's getting much help, so for him to continue to keep plugging away shows the guts of a champion.

Good post, I think some people really need to learn the value of patience. When it comes to a first year starter, JC has done a great job and has really come a long way. When I hear comparisons to Romo I just cringe. Two totally different players and circumstances.

Re: Campbell's Shortcoming

The honeymoon for JC will be over after this season. If he performs like he has this season next season I'm afraid it will be time to look at other options. Don't get me wrong, I have faith in him but he really needs to start winning games or else we'll have a Grossman on our hands.
