Re: Week 4 Gameball

I voted for Campbell, but as far as unsung heroes of the game, I'm going with Brooks and Jansen.

Brooks comes in and is getting more consistent each week. He only had three yards less per punt than did "perennial Pro Bowler" McBriar...

Re: Week 4 Gameball

Got to give it to Campbell. He has matured a lot in last few weeks. Great job of managing the game. Seems like things are clicking and the game is slowing down
for him.

Major props to Zorn and his crazy drills. They seem to really be working for Campbell.

I think there were a couple times they needed a fairly reasonable first down, but instead they went for the killshot and we had great coverage downfield.
Garrett said after the game that they wanted to run but the looks that the Redskins made them switch up calls to pass plays. I think it was a lot of deception on the part of Blache. Also, they probably went overboard in trying to get TO involved. Even when they ran they gave it to him sometimes. He got more carries than Felix Jones didn't he?

Re: Week 4 Gameball

I say every plaer gets a game ball this week as it was just a great group effort.

Re: Week 4 Gameball

It has to be Campbell.

I'd probably give honorable mention to Carlos Rogers/Greg Blache. When Springs left, and Rogers had to cover TO, I seriously thought we wouldn't be able to stop him.

This is outstanding. I think if we add a nice draft pick or two next year on the defensive side of the ball, we'll be absolutely dominant.

Re: Week 4 Gameball

I went with Other, and will give the game ball to the entire D, with emphasis on Shawn Springs. 2 weeks in a row he was able to effectively shut down an opponent's star WR with his coverage skills. The run defense was clutch, holding Barber to 3.3 yards/carry (was averaging 4.6) and zero TDs. Dallas abandoned the run game so early that Felix Jones wasn't even a factor.

All in all, it was a complete team effort. I was hoping for 2-3 coming out of the 1st 5 games, but the Skins could quite possibly be 4-1 and well on their way into a 2nd half that isn't quite has deceiving as the 1st half.

Re: Week 4 Gameball

Campbell. He broke countless tackles to deliver passes instead of being sacked. He spread the ball around (no TDs for Moss or Portis) and ran when needed.

He played very smart football and kept the ball out of Dallas' hands.

Except Rabach.

Re: Week 4 Gameball

It was a total team effort but I've got to say Shawn Springs -- knowing how T.O. single-handedly beat the Redskins last year at Texas Stadium with 4 touchdowns, you'd have to say that whoever is able to stop him, hence, stops the Cowboys.
