Re: Why Jason Campbell should stay in DC.

I think JC could really benefit from a change of scenery. I will miss him but it is merciful and compassionate to let him seek his fortunes elsewhere.

Staying here as a back-up and learning the system and scheme that Shanahan runs will help him out more than getting 'lost' in a place like Oakland, Buffalo, or St.Louis. Shanahan will run a complex offensive scheme that will improve Jason's understanding of the game, reading defenses, and decision making ability.

Playing behind McNabb will teach Campbell valuable leadership skills and quarterback responsibilities that he won't likely get anywhere else. McNabb also misses games and JC will be a contributor in a successful offense.

The other players already like Campbell, but him staying will build a higher level of respect from them and the coaching staff.
This team is going to win, IMO, and being a contributing back-up on a winning team looks good on the resume, especially if a Hall-of-Fame coach gives you solid props.

Jason is still relatively young, and when McNabb retires in a few years, Campbell will be ready to assume the leadership role while he is healthy, and only 31-32 years of age. Otherwise JC could be lost as a permanent back-up on a different teams for the rest of his career.

I understand he wants starter's money, and if he can get it; he should.
However, I do not see any team giving him a starting QB contract or making any long commitment in him.
In my opinion, Campbell should stay here as a back-up, and make the best of the current situation. I believe it is the right thing to do for his career.
E NUUUUFFFF!!! Sorry,

Yeah but then you'd be out of a job. JC supporter you didn't need to say that.

Re: Why Jason Campbell should stay in DC.

[QUOTE=SmootSmack;685130]So let's say the Bills draft Dan Lefevour, for argumen't sake, and trade for Jason Campbell. Campbell starts one year in Buffalo puts up strong numbers, in 2011 Favre retires, Campbell's a free agent and Bam! he's starting on a playoff team in Minnesota. Better than toiling as a backup here I'd think

Can't imagine Buffalo passing on Claussen at 9, or McCoy in the 2nd.
If Jason can find a starter's job anywhere, other than half a season caretaker, he should take it.

He's well past the point of needing to sit on the bench to learn system and scheme. If he's not at this point, he doesn't belong in the league



Starting somewhere would be more beneficial to developing leadership skills

I agree, but I don't think there is a starter's spot for him now.

Players don't generally respect guys who would prefer to be a back-up than a starter



I can't see any reason for Campbell to want to stay here[/QU

I don't see him starting anywhere this year except Buffalo or St.Louis, and only as a caretaker until Bradford/Claussen take over in week 8 or so.

It makes sense for JC not to be there right now as it would be a huge distraction.
Good point and that makes sense. I don't think he will find a starting role, but I also think he will ask to be released or traded for next to nothing so he can try to latch on somewhere and compete for a job. I think Shanahan would placate him if Campbell requests it.

And people complain about Brennan supporters. I think we can officially say Brennan has more chance of starting for the Skins now than Campbell. The only thing I'm looking for with Campbell is not (where is he going?) (will he be starting?)(what is he saying?). The only thing I want to know is what we are getting for him. I imagine a 4th or later and maybe a late round pick next year. The Skins have already given him enuff. It's time he gave them something...like a extra draft pic.

Re: Why Jason Campbell should stay in DC.

I know Campbell won't start over McNabb, but I think he is the best back-up we could get, better than Rex 'interception' Grossman, IMO. McNabb can also be expected to miss some time, and having Campbell on hand would be a positive thing. I don't think any team will offer anything of value to necessitate a trade of JC. I just think it would be beneficial for all concerned to have Campbell here for awhile. If Campbell can start elsewhere, he should go, and if Washington can get a 3rd for him, they should take it. Otherwise I hope he stays.

We used more than a first rounder for him. A third in 05 and a first and 4th in '06. Another brilliant personnel move by Gibbs...

Raise your hand if you still want to move up to pick Bradford.

Re: Why Jason Campbell should stay in DC.

Jason Campbell is already gone. If you haven't GOTTEN that yet, despite all the pleasantries coming out of Redskins Park....just take a look at the wall and read it.

The writing is on the wall my friends. He will be TRADED before the draft. It's OVER.

Re: Why Jason Campbell should stay in DC.

I think reality day is coming for Jason. He thinks he's a starter in the league. From what I can tell nobody else does. Either he learns the "backup" role or I could see him absent from the NFL just a year from now.

...maybe I'm all wrong on this?
