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.

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!

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?

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

Re: Why Jason Campbell should stay in DC.

He should stay because he'd be an awesome backup and we'd likely need a couple starts out of our backup for the next 3 years.

Campbell is an immediate starter on about 5 teams, though....and would fight for the role for another 10. I don't see how we can keep him unless no one is willing to give us good value for him...which is a distinct possibility...normally teams that have the 5 worst QBs are in rebuilding mode...Campbell is fine, but is not seen as a franchise level QB....that hurts our trading position

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.

Sorry Charlie, but JC has been in the league long enough to expect being a starter. Last season he was 14th in passing, that is just above average in terms of a 32 team league. THat means there were 18 QBs that were below him. Take in account that he didn't have a line or a solid WR corp and he should garner some interest from teams like Oakland, Buffalo, or Tampa Bay. Carolina might want to take a shot at him. Secondly, if Donovan stays for say 5 more seasons, what good does it do for JC? Learn the game for 5 more years? By that time he is ready to retire almost. Every QB wants to start and since JC has been or starter for 3 years solid and done a decent job with the drama he has been through, I think he can expect a starting job.

Re: Why Jason Campbell should stay in DC.

well, at this point Grossman is the better backup on this team. HERE is why. Campbell is learning another new system all over again and we know he is slow. Rex already has a year in the system so he is familiar with everything and will feel more comfortable. Since McNabb is the starter and Jason is leaving after this year...then why not get a 3rd or 4th round pick for him. anyway...its a moot point. he is gone within 10 days. Bank on it.

Being "Familiar to the system" hasn't helped Rex in the past now has it? The whole "Bringing the crappy back-up with you" thing didn't work with Todd Collins either. Todd wasn't good enough to start on any team for a decade and he couldn't even beat Jason Campbell for the job regardless of his familiarity to Al Saunders' system. Rex didn't do well after years in Chicago's system, FAR worse than JC. His worst is still better than Rex's best year. Look at the numbers and talk to the Bear Fans. they like him far less than most Skinz fans like Campbell.

JC learning a new system is old news. As the systems change he only gets better IN SPITE of it, We won't know with McNabb, this will be the first time in over a decade he'll have a big change, and Rex... He will matter as little as Todd Collins. I would MUCH rather have JC as a backup. McNabb WILL get injured. Unless our line is GREATLY improved, McNabb will bet throttled repeatedly and we need a backup who's best is at LEAST better than JC's WORST!!?!?!? :confused- Rex? Really!?!

How is this supposed to make me feel better? His only full season is worst than JCs WORST season and the only thing Rex did last year was throw an interception!?! REX HAS MORE INTERCEPTIONS THAN TOUCHDOWNS! That's all i should have to say. I'll leave it at that.

Re: Why Jason Campbell should stay in DC.

Rumor

Aparently someone put on Bleacher Report that JC was traded to the Raiders for a 3rd round pick and possibly a 4th. No one has been able to confirm it so it. As you can see I labled my post rumor for a reason but thought I would share. People have gone up to Bleacher Report and have said it's not there now and that everyone can post so who knows how true it is other then to say it's possibly just a rumor.

Edit: I meant to say it's being talked about on Extremeskins.
