Re: Jason Campbell to be on SI cover next week

Florio could not have possibly written this article...or could he???? "The REDSKINS chances are better than most people realize" HUH......this is a breaking news flash here!

Jason Campell takes charge
Posted by Mike Florio on August 5, 2009 4:12 PM ET
As he commences a season that was preceded by multiple attempts to bring in the man who would replace him, Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell is embracing his role as a team leader.

We're told that he's taking charge like never before in practice, yelling at teammates and grabbing them in the huddle, when the need arises.

And his attitude came through when Campbell spoke to the media on Wednesday.

"We all have to be focused," he said. "Being a leader of a football team, practice goes the way you come out here and participate. You play upbeat. I'm coming out here, we're having fun and guys are paying attention to detail. Of course we make mistakes out here at the same time, but there are things you do to correct it. It's all about how you bounce back and continue to move forward."

Campbell also has landed on the cover of the training-camp edition Sports Illustrated, next to the caption "Pressure Points And Pivotal Players."

In the last year of his rookie contract, Campbell is definitely under pressure. But he's also going to be pivotal to the Redskins' chances in 2009. (Maybe that's why they put his picture next to those words.)

So in a conference that's flatter than a runny pancake, we think the Redskins' chances are better than most people realize.

Re: Jason Campbell to be on SI cover next week

Yeah Florio was on some radio (maybe tv?) interview a few weeks ago and he said basically "Don't sleep on the Redskins"

Excellent point, and 100% correct. There's a huge difference between Matt Ryan -- the first rookie quarterback to make a significant impact in recent memory, and Joe Flacco, who could have been ANYONE last year.

Flacco might very well improve. But age of the prospect aside, if you are given one quarterback between Flacco and Campbell to win over the next five years, Campbell is the proven one.

Ryan is a different story. He's unproven from a experience standpoint, but he was legitimately great last year.

Re: Jason Campbell to be on SI cover next week

Does anyone know if there is a way to order 1 issue of S.I? I live in Japan, and I don't think I can get a copy on base, much less somewhere off-base. I'd like to have this one for a while, I like JC, regaurdless how this year plays out.

I think he's demonstrated that he handled it like a true pro and has moved on. That doesn't mean he needs to shy away from any questions about it.
the media is always going to bring up what happened during the off season. that's their job, to try and stir shit up. jc has handled it with class and i'm glad he's still our qb. but now is the time to not talk about the past and talk about the upcoming season. he could just say, "i'm not talking about that anymore". i just thought the timing was bad.

I hate the Ravens with a passion, but Flacco was throwing bombs left and right at the end of last season, even when protection broke down. It seemed like every time he dropped back, the ball was going at least 20 yards downfield, and he didn't need receivers to be "open". He may prove me wrong, but I think he's legit, with or without Mason.

Re: Jason Campbell to be on SI cover next week

I am hoping Campbell will bring his game to a new level this year and he will lead us on to the promise land. Things are looking up

So for all doubters, put some better OLineman there before we fully judge Campbell.
I think he's saying it because he wants a franchise QB no matter who it is. I think he'd like to see JC become that for the sake of the team.

Re: Jason Campbell to be on SI cover next week

Read the article at the barber shop yesterday while waiting for some picky metrosexual guy to get his sideburns adjusted "just right" for about 10 minutes. Good read.

Great to see players from my two favorite teams on the cover on consecutive weeks. Buehrle and Campbell.

Honestly, I'd try e-Bay or Amazon.

They're not on e-Bay yet, only refrigerator magnets of the cover...but there's some on Amazon:

Amazon.com: Sports Illustrated, August 10,... Amazon.com: Sports Illustrated, August 10,...



edit: Actually, found some on E-Bay now. First I searched for Jason Campbell SI and got the magnets, but if you type in "Sports Illustrated, August 10, 2009" you get some:
Sports Illustrated, August 10, 2009, great deals on on eBay!

Good luck.
