Considering the guy has to learn a new offense every year, and on top of that has average to below average NFL wr's, I think he's been pretty solid so far. I think Zorn will take his game to the next level. But you have to realize that it might not happen this year.

Re: Gameday Thread Jets- Skins

I think this game was a nice little reality check. We played flat for the most part and not finishing those drives is a concern. I'm hoping to see a bit more inspired play against the Panthers.

The whole team is inconsistent, as usual over the last two seasons.

....actually if you look at the second half the 2007 season through this preseason, the Redskins are one of the hottest teams in football.

Re: Gameday Thread Jets- Skins

I really hate to beat this horse to death, but let's look at Jason Campbell's class.

1 Smith, Alex
2 Rodgers, Aaron
3 Campbell, Jason
4 Frye, Charlie
5 Walter, Andrew
6 Orton, Kyle
7 Greene, David
8 McPherson, Adrian
9 Orlovsky, Dan
10 Fitzpatrick, Ryan
11 Anderson, Derek

JC & Derek Anderson are definitely the top 2 in this class.

That's kind of my point. A few of those guys aren't even playing football any longer.

I don't think that was the intention when they drafted him, though I guess w/any backup you can call them "insurance" as they might win the starting job. I think the hope was that Colt would be a reliable young backup in a couple years, which the team has needed for a long time. We've had some decent backups but none that are young & developing like he is.

The fact that he was taken in the 6th round shows that they're not investing a lot in the position & don't want to create camp competition for JC.

It still doesn't change the fact that the Skins have been inconsistent. JC hasn't been the only player over the last two seasons that hasn't been consistent. I felt last year the Skins (not GB) should have been competing with the Boyz for the top spot in the NFC. The reason the Skins lost seven games wasn't solely due to JC, but the Skins being inconsistent. The Skins should have won 5 out of the 7 games they lost last year. The GB, Philly, and NY games, JC was on his JOB and they still lost. The Philly game JC had three TDs(zero int) without a starting receiver.(Yes he threw an int in GB game, but Favre threw 2 and had 0 TDs.) I will even say for most the the Dallas game JC was on his JOB. I don't understand why some of you are ready to throw JC under the bus. If we going to the JC under the bus, then we need to start throwing some of his teammates with him.

Actually somone did suggest, maybe sarcastically, that we should dump JC or trade if he can't come through. I think he'll be fine.

I'm hoping that JC has a good year and shows he has what it takes to lead this team. If he cannot show that this yaer I feel the team has to look for a QB that can. I'm not saying he has to lead us to the SB but he has to show that he will be able to lead us there.

I agree with all of you guys about JC. He simply has to take his game to the next level. I think if this team stays healthy, there's no reason we can't make it to the playoffs again this year. And do well.

But as I pointed out on the list of mediocre QB's from JC's class, the only one who is flat out above the rest of the crew is Cleveland's Derek Anderson. And one could argue that's because he's been in the same system with the same head coach throughout his career. There's something to be said about that. I mean, look at how Alex Smith has handled the ups and downs of a changing cast and system. He's looking more and more like a bust with each season, and might not even start this year. And Aaron Rodgers aint lighting up in Green Bay either. What a disaster that could turn out to be if he flops this year.

At least give Jason Campbell credit for adjusting to the constant changing winds at Redskin's Park.

Well if he does not have any confidence in JC as our starter then why is he a supporter of him? If I didn't think JC had what it takes I would not then claim to be a supporter of his and I would want him on the bench.

Puh-lease, fans can be so fickle. I love all this talk about Colt being the next coming of Joe Montana. Or so it seems. Look the kid can throw the football. There's no denying that. And if he continues to grow and JC stagnates, then maybe in a year or two, he could have a shot at challenging for the starting job.

But so far Colt has been impressive under less than impressive circumstances.
