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?

There is a lot of truth in your post. I talked to a Carolina fan today, he didn't think there was any way Campbell beats out Moore. There just are not that many open spots out there. He may need an injury (which there is a good chance of) before he has a legitimate opportunity.

Jason Campbell needs to go somewhere else and prove he's a starter. That's what's best for him.

Shanahan isn't going to cut him I don't think. He'll need to approve of the value.

Shanahan: Campbell Could Stay With Redskins
MS also makes a great argument as to why DM is not to old to win a SB even if its not immediate. For those that have not seen it.
Watch the video.

yep, saw the vid. I still think Shanahan is saying what he has to say. He isn't going to come out and say "screw Jason Campbell, we don't want him."

That would destroy any trade possibilities, and we couldn't get a 7th round pick for him at that point. Regardless of the official position statements, I still say JC is gone, it's only a matter of when and for how much.

Re: Why Jason Campbell should stay in DC.

JC does not want to be a backup like any other QB. He will end up in Carolina (imo). Just like Donovan needs some time to develop in the right offensive system, so will JC. I believe JC's best days are ahead of him. Like you, I have followed him since he came out of Auburn and I think he is a stand up human being that is also a great QB. I don't think that our past offense system geled at all. O-line doing one thing, backs another, TE's another, WR's another... it was all mixed up with no direction whatsoever. If he goes to a team with any resemblence of a coordinated effort, watch out. Good luck Jason Campbell. I will root for you!

Yeah. PHI will definititely have strong interests in aquiring Campbell after Jay Feeley, I mean, Kevin Kolb stinks up the joint...

Philly trades Vic and then aquires JC. What do you think?

Re: Why Jason Campbell should stay in DC.

JC is a great backup. Thats all he is. Thats all other teams probably see him as. He needs to evaluate what he wants. Go elswhere and hopefully beat out some other poor sap and be a starter on a crappy team or stay here and be the back up and hopefully get a SB ring. His best chance to get it is here as back up cause I think he a lot better then Grossman because he's safe with the ball.

Re: Why Jason Campbell should stay in DC.

You may be right. I just have a problem admitting it to myself. After all the success he had in college, all the different NFL offensive systems he's been through and a great statistical 2009 season... he's just an average back up?

He had a great statistical season last year?

Re: Why Jason Campbell should stay in DC.

I think we as fans and JC himself over-valued his abilities. It's fairly clear the rest of the league views him as a back-up. Hopefully Campbell can maintain his poise, and accept a back-up role here as I still think it is in his best interest. Most anywhere else he would go, he would most likely be a career back-up, where as here, he could expect some occasional starts and a chance to be a starter again in 3 -4 years.
The fact that he can learn so much from the 2 Shanahans and McNabb would be beneficial to him, and something he wouldn't get anywhere else. I don't think Shan will trade him for a 4th or worse, and JC should accept his new role and work hard to stay here. Hopefully he doesn't run himself off the team as Haynesworth is doing.

Re: Why Jason Campbell should stay in DC.

Okay, this thread is overwhemed by people who are not fans of JC and sprinkled with a few that either don't care or actually like him.

The fact of the matter is that Jason Campbell's 86.4 ranked 15th among QBs so statisticly speaking, he is better than 18 other QBs. 12 QBs with ratings below 80 like Matt Hassekbeck. This isn't including the dozens of other qbs that have started a few games like Byron Leftwich. There are at least 12 teams with significantly worse starting QBs than Jason Campbell. Now as yourself, how many great QBs are in the draft and where do the 12 worse teams fall? How many of them want the next eventually great guy and how many think they are a player away or want a good QB now?

To think nobody would want him is to ignore the age of Matt Hasselbeck. The Retiring of Kurt Warner. Leinart hasn't done the job right yet, maybe they would want him to have competition. The Bengals, for instance, have a Carson Palmer (83.6) who has yet to return to form since his surgery a few years ago. JT O'Sullivan is horrible, and Jordan Palmer... even WE passed up on that kid. Not saying it's what I expect, I'm just saying there are plenty of teams for whom the hiring of JC is an upgrade, or at least an option. He's not the best and safe to say he won't be gettinga hall of fame nod, but he's far from the worst and still better than plenty of other qbs
