Peter King On Jason Campbell

At The Park Today: Talking To Peter King ę The Official Blog of The Washington Redskins

Answers in bold print.....He also talks about Snyder and about how it's perceived that he hates the Skins.

Okay. Finally: tell us something you saw at camp today thatís not going to make it into your Postcard From Camp, but that Redskins fans would want to know.

Iíll tell you something that IS going to make it into my postcard: I thought Jason Campbell had one of the best camp practices Iíve ever seen a quarterback have.

Really!

I mean, if he had four balls hit the ground in two hours, Iíll be surprised. I mean, the touch on this passes, his accuracy downfield, I was highly, highly impressed.

Now, Iíve seen him a few times over the years, and Iíve thought heís okay, but I never saw him like I saw him today.


Do you think itís Coach Zorn? What do you think it is?

I think itís maturation, I think itís fourth year in the NFL, I think itís a lot of things. Now, you know what I like about him? He could have sat there with his eight different offensive systems in the last nine years of his football life and he couldíve said, ďWoe is me, I am so sick of this crap, Iím going to go buy my own team so I can run the offense that I would want to run.Ē

But all he did was Ė evidently he MUST have Ė put his nose to the grindstone and learned another offense.

Now, you always, always hesitate [to judge] when thereís nobody rushing. I mean, one of the best camp practices I saw last year was Rex Grossman and I have become convinced now that Grossman is great when he knows heís not going to get hit. And he still MIGHT be great. But I saw him two practices last year, he was fantastic, and then he was Rex Grossman when the lights came on. So weíll see about Jason Campbell.

But, if Iím a Redskins fan watching this practice today, I go home and Iím really excited.

Not a bad day for JC. Good to hear some praise for our guy.

IMO, the whole season comes down to how JC performs.

That was a pretty entertaining exchange. IMO is shows JC is as professional as they come.

True, but I get the impression that for at least the first month or so Zorn is going to structure it so that (as much as possible) he won't be asked to win games for them. At some point though, that's going to be required.

Re: Peter King On Jason Campbell

I like Peter King, he usually is very keen to some things most people don't think about, and its a good sign that he likes the direction the team is moving in, and how JC was looking today at practice

Re: Peter King On Jason Campbell

I find it strange that most of the reports we've been hearing have talked about how inaccurate / inconsistent Campbell has been. Hopefully this turns into a normal thing.

Re: Peter King On Jason Campbell

Rex Grossman ... those are some huge shoes to fill.

Let's not get too excited just yet. I also saw an interview with Cooley today on a blog where he talks about how intelligent Jason Campbell is in learning the offense better and quicker than anyone on the team. I definitely like to hear that - since West Coast requires quick, smart decision making.

We'll see - he definitely holds the season in his hands...

I was thinking the exact same thing.

Good read.

PK gets a lot of shit from Skins fans, most of it isn't deserved.

Re: Peter King On Jason Campbell

Good article. Monk's in the Hall now so PK could finally show up at Redskins Park without getting a serious butt-whippin'. LOL
