Campbell's "shocking" statement and the offseason

Just (re)watching videos from Redskins.com I realized I forgot about Jason's statement from the 12/29 presser (not quite two minutes in) where he says the following about personnel changes:

"...but, you know, I'm pretty sure this offseason there are going to be some dramatic changes, you know, some may be shocking. So, you know, we all got to be prepared for it."

First of all I'm curious what everybody would consider a "shocking" change? Personally the only thing that would truly shock me is trading Portis (I highly doubt Campbell is saying that). Secondly, when should we expect to see changes to personnel aside from the draft?

I would guess he would consider trading Moss to be shocking.

I wouldn't read to deep here. Trading Rogers would be shocking to Campbell even if it wasn't shocking to the rest of the world.

Being old teammates at Auburn together I guess that would be shocking to him. But Carlos didn't play nearly as bad as Smoot this season. I think he and D. Hall would make a pretty damn good tandem.

It may have been just emotion after a TERRIBLE 8 game slide (2-6) Unless he thinks he will be gone, but that's not going to happen.

Re: Campbell's "shocking" statement and the offseason

And don't be "shocked" if we trade Portis, he is almost 28 and you can find solid RB's in the draft... (Kno'Shawn Moreno) Guys like that... I love portis but it's not like he puts up HUGE numbers every season, he can be replaced.

Re: Campbell's "shocking" statement and the offseason

I would expect an NFL player like JC wouldn't be shocked by anything. Well, I guess losing the starting job would be shocking to him....Skins drafting a QB would also be shocking.

The only thing that would be remotely close to shocking is loosing Cooley or Portis.

I think he was just speaking in generalities, just saying in this league and particularly with this team you should always "expect the unexpected"

I'm starting to think Portis could be gone as well. I disagree about his numbers. With the offenses (being so one-dimensional and predictable) he's played on since he's been here his numbers are huge IMO. I don't want the team to trade him but if he must go to make the team a legit contender...see ya CP...it's all about winning the Super Bowl and I'm tired of waiting for #4!

HAIL!!

Look no further than his cap figure, he's definitely coming back in 2009. His cap hit is over $13M.

Trade Portis and Moss and try to get TJ from Cincy.

There's two things in the world that are 100% true. The clock will strike 12 twice a day and Clinton Portis will be a Redskin in 2009.

Re: Campbell's "shocking" statement and the offseason

Also, Portis is not only our best RB, but our best blocker, which says more about our OL.

Maybe this should be the first post of every thread.

If we didn't knock on Portis's door every offseason and ask him to sign a new contract, so we can get under the salary cap, and then pay him a new signing bonus we might have been able to move him.

...being that we're handcuffed to him like Damon Wayans and Adam Sandler Bulletproof-style, we're moving him anytime soon. Also I hear that Dan Snyder has a close relationship with him.


BTW, I like Portis and don't want to see him go. I wouldn't mind a change-up back though in the draft. IMO Portis has trained to develop a running style that would make his career last despite his OL. If you notice he doesn't do any juking right before contact like he used to in '04. I think he has his longevity in mind, which I don't fault him for.
