Well there has to be a reason that our WRs dropped so many balls alst year. Campbell throws the ball at least 10 MPH harder and I think that really messed things up with the WRs. They'll get used to it.

I found a good article on the history of the WCO, it's by our friend Lenny P but it's still worth the read:

ESPN.com: NFL - All roads lead to Walsh ... sort of

Over the years I have become a proponent of the WC after witnessing how effective it can be run by some teams [not all that use it] There have been varying viewpoints, and each viewpoint has it's pro's and con's. I certainly cannot argue with success, and after watching Bill Walsh win four SB utilizing this particular type offense, I see no reason why it can't be successful for the Redskins. Right coaching-right personell=success.

Al Saunders system might not have been the best fit for Campbell and if you want to see Campbell and his accuracy check out that SEC Championship game. Here is a link.

YouTube - Jason Campbell 2005 SEC Championship Game 2ndHalf Highlights 2nd half

WOW. I didn't see that game, but just watched both the clips. If I had to be honest, Campbell was really not all that impressive in those highlights. Especially considering the stats he put up. Almost all of his big plays were when Tennesee didn't pressure him at all and the DB play was horrible. When he was pressured, he was mostly indecisive and usually either threw it away or forced it in to a bad situation. He sure was bailed out a lot by DB penalites... I don't think he'd get away with half of that against an NFL defense. I'm not a Campbell hater for sure, but I came away from those video clips very disappointed. If that is the best game of his college career, then our scouting folks need to be fired. Yikes.

He's a fan of Ade Jimoh! Obviously scouting talented FB players isn't his forte!

Re: West Coast Offense - Good, Bad or Ugly?

it'll take time to adjust (maybe a full year) and auburn's WCO isn't the same as the NFL version with better competition and MUCH smaller windows for completions.

That, coupled with the speed of the offense, as well as the speed of the defensive reaction to it.

What is encouraging though is the fact Jason is not a virgin to this particular offense, despite being played on a higher level. It's only natural that it will take a little while to make the adjustment, I still envision the offense being productive even during the process of the learning curve.
