I think those complaints had more to do with lack of leadership from the head coach. Zorn was nothing more than a figure head.

No there have been players complaining that there were a lack of leaders from the players themselves.

So I guess we should assume all this chatter is directed towards JC only?

Agreed. Jason got his ass kicked repeatedly this year, was treat like a piece of garbage by the organization, and all he did was get up and keep fighting, all the while never once complaining. The class and poise with which he's handled himself is all about leadership IMO. You better believe he has the respect of the locker room. Clinton? Not so much. I'm done with him, and I think the Redskins are too. I hope.

Re: Jason Campbells response to Portis

WOW! Thank you Jason for confirming what we knew all along, and most of all for being a class act since the day you stepped foot on Redskin Park. I hope to see you here next year, but don't blame you one bit if you have a UHaul double parked. Godspeed.

No, but it's my opinion that a westcoast offensive-minded team needs the quarterback to be a leader -- if not THE leader.

And there's no evidence to support this opinion but let's make an exception this time because I KNOW that every post here needs definitive evidence when going against the grain.

Why does a WC QB need to be more of a leader in your opinion?

Because, the team's offense is directly related to how well the qb does. And it's not just leading by performance, but it's also leading by character and discipline (disciplining others, making sure that everyone is on the same page and going in the same direction).

Campbell has character, which I can respect -- but I don't think he has the other two traits.

... and a westcoast offensive-minded team is measured more by how well it does on offense.

Well I think you can say that about any offense, I don't get your correlation to the west coast offense.

JC was voted team captain by his teammates, and there have been plenty of comments made in his support these last few days. I guess we'll have to agree to disagree, but I don't see where JC's lack of leadership is some sort of major issue. Certainly not more so than a bad offensive line and many other issues that plagued the offense this year.

these 5 players plus the "anonymous or unidentified players".

Re: Jason Campbells response to Portis

I think most of the players will side with JC as well. CP hasn't really made any friends in the locker room...

HomerMcFanboy teammates tired of the portis drama
