I will be curious to see if he can make that team, or any team for that matter. He'll be a jouneyman at best from here out.

I agree with you about the high expectations, and if someone doesn't meet those expectations, that's when they become a bust. We like to talk about the "epic failures" that become busts, and often those big names are the ones synonomous with bust, but that doesn't mean that only the extremely epic failures are the only busts. Campbell was a bust for us, and he will likely suck in Oakland (due to poor leadership in that orginization and no help from players) meaning he will solidify himself as a bust.
Look at Roy Williams, he has played 25 games for the Cowboys, and has had only 57 receptions for 794 yards during those games. He was a Pro Bowler for the Lions, and played extremely well for them. So why is it Roy Williams is now a bust for the Cowboys?

By your definition, Roy Williams never won games with the Lions, so there should be no relative considerations, he was a bust when he was acquired by the Cowboys, and he's done nothing to change his plight there.

By the definitions of others, Williams has been a bust for the Cowboys because he was acquired from the Lions for a hefty price and with great expectations, and hasn't offered them acceptable production for their investment. I don't think too many people would actually propose that Williams isn't an NFL caliber player, but given that he was no great shakes for the Lions, the price that Dallas payed to get him looks obscene by comparison.

It's true that Roy Williams didn't offer quite the production that Detroit was hoping to get from a top ten pick, but he was able to play like a professional for four seasons there. Therefore, poor value, though clearly not a bust. Dallas wasn't looking for a professional in 2008, they were paying to get a developed no. 1 receiver, which there was little reason to think Williams would be.

Re: Campbell A Raider

Thought this was interesting as I didn't here about this till tonight. The Raiders got JC but it looks like we may have landed the guy they really wanted.

You're just hearing about this now?

Word was McNabb would have considered retiring had he been traded there.

Re: Campbell A Raider

Check out the resume on JC that the Raiders site posted:

Raiders Acquire QB Jason Campbell



Wow. 6th all time in passing yards for the Skins, highest completion % in club history?

Never thought of him that way.

I guess they missed the part about him being one of the biggest busts in club history

He would need to put on some more weight for that, but that shouldn't be a problem. Gaining weight is one of the things he actually does well.

if he gets cut by the raiders, Buffalo might be interested. If not, maybe the CFL will be. If not, theres always sumo wrestling.

Not really, when I think of Redskins busts, Heath Shuler...ARGH.

He's still a gigantic upgrade over their own bust QB.

I know, he's not a bust. Just being sarcastic in regard to those that think he is.
