I kinda doubt it. Despite his struggles he's a hard worker and has the respect of his teammates. Hell, he and Cooley are practically best friends off the field, so I can't see Cooley calling him out.

Re: Campbell's numbers dont lie

If we've got a guy named Campbell, they need to put him in. The guy they've got playing now isn't getting it done. Hey wait . . . . yeah, my bad.

I can see why Campbell has friends on this team, but I'm not so sure about the respect part of this. They all watch, analyze, and discuss film together, so they know who's doing well or not. As a teammate, if my quarterback was the reason we weren't winning - I wouldn't respect him - even if he was my best friend.

I don't believe there are players walking around thinking that JC is the sole reason they aren't winning.

He isn't the sole reason why, but when they're watching film - Zorn has had to say the same things that Casserly just said in that video in front of the whole team. He can sugarcoat it all he wants in front of everyone but if he's correcting Campbell with a number of plays, then that gets into the minds of the players.

I'm just saying there's really no way around that.

charlie casserly's break down of JC . . . sounds like alot of us on here. the defense of JC is becoming indefensible imo.

go skins!!
I've been one of the Campbell defenders, but wow, film doesn't lie. I trust film more than I trust numbers, and many of the instances that Casserly showed were EASY throws if the ball comes out on time. Perhaps Campbell will end up as a backup for a team running a Coryell-based downfield attack.

Yeah I just don't think you always "lose respect" for someone if they aren't playing well.

By all accounts JC works hard on and off the field, so I'm sure he has a basic level of respect from his teammates for that. Sure he's not playing well and of course you have to start by looking at his play, but there are a bunch of other factors at work as well that is contributing to his poor play. It's not as easy as just pointing the finger at him alone.

Understanding the issues with Campbell why hasn't Vinny gone after Jeff Garcia who would be obvious fit?

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Mark Sanchez had to apologize for his sideline demeanor again. This time, he was hot-dogging it. Literally.


Sanchez shook off the worst start of his young career by running for one touchdown and throwing for another, before taking time to munch on a snack in the closing minutes of a 38-0 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.


Sanchez was criticized last week for looking dejected on the sideline while throwing five interceptions in an overtime loss to Buffalo. He was happy enough after this performance that he was caught by television cameras trying to discretely eat a hot dog at the end of the blowout.

"I want to apologize for that," he said. "I wasn't feeling very good and didn't eat much before the game, so I was feeling a little queasy. Toward the end of the game, I probably should have eaten one of those bars or something, but someone offered [a hot dog], so I grabbed it and tried to be discreet about it, but obviously not discreet enough. So I shouldn't have done that, and it won't happen again."

ive posted on here a couple times that imo JC needs his first read to be open open for any passing play over 10 yds to click. apparently (atleast from this small sampling) shows that even when zorn calls a perfect play, the reciever runs a good route and JCs first read is open, he still doesnt get the ball out on time.
I've been a big JC supporter on this site but watching that video it really cements one of the criticisms that I've had which is that he's way too robotic. You can almost see him thinking too much thru his reads and not, as Charley said, trusting his eyes. Even on some of his worst missed throws (the poorly thrown fades to Kelly vs. St. Louis and TB, the missed pass to Moss across the middle vs. KC) it's almost like he's fighting against himself to make throws because he's not sure. It'd be a shame to see his tools go to waste but I am afraid that's what is going to happen for him in DC.

What's the point in bringing in a 39 year old who has never played under this variation of the WCO? If that's the case, why not bring in Dilfer who played under Zorn in Seattle?

Re: Campbell's numbers dont lie

I agree with Casserly that Campbell is a square peg being forced into a round hole with the change to a WCO under Zorn. I've wondered how Campbell would have continued to progress in the Al Saunders system, for which his skills seem a much better fit. Joe Flacco is looking pretty damn good in that system with Cam Cameron and Saunders coaching him up.

Re: Campbell's numbers dont lie

I heard Casserly on the Dan Patrick show this morning, and Casserly basically said the same thing: this offense doesn't fit with Campbell's strengths. He said that JC would be better in a downfield, play-action type scheme along with moving him around, rolling him out more.

One day, I think we'll look back and recognize that the first mistake that got this whole thing rolling downhill was the hiring of Jim Zorn as offensive coordinator. Going from a completely different offense apart from the one that Gibbs ran, which is why he spotted and selected Jason Campbell in the first place, and switching to a West Coast style offense may have set JC back immeasurably.
