A Playoff question: Campbell or Collins?

OK - let's say that the Redskins beat the Cowboys next week with Dallas having nothing to play for and the Redskins having to win to get in. Lets say Collins continues to look sharp in the win against Dallas.

I heard that on the game Jason Campbell is stretching again and he may be able to return in a couple of weeks.

My question is do you put Campbell back in if he is healthy or ride this thing with Collins until the season ends?

This thread is not about the future of Jason Campbell - he is the unquestioned long term starter at qb for us - I am just asking about the postseason for this year only.

Thoughts?

I would say stick to what is working right now and change nothing. Hopefully the same results will occur again.

Re: A Playoff question: Campbell or Collins?

UNQUESTIONABLY u play collins if we make it that far. He is the one who got the team going and will have been playing consistently if we make it that far. Campbell wouldn't be 100% and is still a young QB who is learning the offense (as was evidenced by his play before the injury). It's a no brainer Collins will be your man in that scenario. Campbell is still the QB of the future and needs a few more months of development (and recovery, mentally and physically).

Re: A Playoff question: Campbell or Collins?

You have to stick with Collins when you are winning and everything is running smoothly. My question is why was he not the starter last year instead of Brunell. Could we have made the playoffs last year. Saunders has said repeatedly if you want to win now Collins is your guy. I guess I'm just bias because I like Collins very much in this system. I knew that he would do this for us even though he was a backup for most of his career. You have to understand that coaches like Saunders and Martz can work with any qb who has a high football IQ. Campbell will get his shot but not right now. Trust Saunders just like we trust Williams and everything will be okay.

Re: A Playoff question: Campbell or Collins?

I'm not so sure. I think when Campbell is healthy, it's his show. He is our starting QB. It will be interesting, and I'm not advocating one way or the other, but I think Gibbs will put him back in the lineup. If he struggles, though... that may be a different story.

I don't think so. Gibbs will stick with what's working plus Campbell's knee is still tender and doesn't want to risk further injury. Now if Collins screws up he has to give Campbell a chance.

Re: A Playoff question: Campbell or Collins?

I really don't think you can ruin a good thing. Outside of the miserable weather in NY, he's been lights out and has hit on 75% in two of 3 games now. You just can't take him out now.

Collins. Campbell has a bright future ahead of him, why rush him back now and risk more damage to his knee when Collins has shown he can lead this team?

Re: A Playoff question: Campbell or Collins?

And knowing Gibbs' past history with handling QBs at this time of year, he will stick with the hot hand.

Re: A Playoff question: Campbell or Collins?

In three weeks playing now Collins has won offensive player of the week and horse trailer player of the game. Remember Collins isn't a quarterback that played poorly and got benched at some point in his career, he's a player that never got his chance to start...until now.

Re: A Playoff question: Campbell or Collins?

I've been mulling this over in my mind and it's a tough decision. Gman and I were talking about this and I agree with his take, I kinda hope Campbell isn't quite ready and spends the time healing and memorizing the playbook. The rest of the season is Collins' but next season is all Campbell again.

Re: A Playoff question: Campbell or Collins?

So I'm think ahead, It looks like everyone in the NFC has kind of locked up their playoff position except the Skins and/or the 7th seed (ever how you want to look at it) If the Skins win, who do they play first? Is it the Seahawks? It looks like the Giants are going to Tampa?

Re: A Playoff question: Campbell or Collins?

Question?
I thought when Collins came over, he had a 2 year deal....meaning he is a free agent at the end of the year...is that right?
