Re: What Will Jason Campbell's Legacy Be?

I think he leaves no legacy...the only legacy he could leav is one of utter failure on the FO's part. Either by crapping out in Oakland and proving he is a bust or getting the job done and proving Shanny wrong. Somehow he'll be right in the middle I suspect.

That would have to be Loyd & Arch in the debacle of 2006.

I'll always stand by Gibbs' decision to get JC. We can disagree about what we gave up, but I never thought it was too much when you're trying to land the qb of the future.

Of all the 'what-ifs' of JC's career, I think one of the biggest was Gibbs leaving early. What if he'd stayed one more year? The Gibbs/Saunders O was more suited to JC. Gibbs picked a qb that HE thought he could win with, but that's much different than a qb that Jim Zorn can win with.

Gibbs won w/Mark Rypien, probably the worst qb to ever win a super bowl. Gibbs felt he could win w/JC, maybe he could've in due time.

For me, this about sums it up.

He made we want to leave my seat and go get a $5 soda more than anyone else in the history of Fedex Field.

The only thing I could be sure to miss if JC was behind center was a punt.

Re: What Will Jason Campbell's Legacy Be?

JC's only legacy will be the reminder of 4 systems in 5 years, or the failure of our FO to stabilize our team. He will be the billboard for the 2000-2009 era, hopefully the 2010-2019 will start in a better way.

Not to quibble or get the thread off track, but Big Ben had the worst Super Bowl game ever vs Seattle by a starting QB.

Probably the safest of all bets. And good post.

Re: What Will Jason Campbell's Legacy Be?

I don't think he leaves any real legacy here. Todd Collins has more of a legacy than JC does. He's an average NFL QB who was failed by management. I think all true Redskin fans wish him well but it's so time to move on.

You know that's true. Todd Collins led the late season charge to the playoffs in the aftermath of Sean Taylor's murder. That is a memory that will stand the test of time.

I think the entire era of QB from Rypien to current will be a blight on Redskins history. Hopefully McNabb puts up a couple of solid seasons and Shanahan drafts a true QB of the future somewhere in the next 2 drafts.

Re: What Will Jason Campbell's Legacy Be?

Sorry, but this legacy crap has to go. The guy only started 3 seasons and didn't give us any playoffs(Collins did that). Simply put, he wasn't here long enough to even have a legacy. You want to make a thread of JC's legacy, then maybe I should open one up about Gus Frerotte's legacy! Shoot he made the Pro Bowl and swept Aikman and company that season('96) to boot!!!! Gus, Terry, and the boys were a lot more fun to watch than these bums!!!!!

Re: What Will Jason Campbell's Legacy Be?

Wasted draft picks.

The talent guys obviously thought he was a bit special and were determined to get him and I don't have a problem with that, but they were wrong.

When you have people looking at tape from last year and saying how simplified the offence was and JC still couldn't make easy calls at the line then the problem is obvious.

Not smart enough to be a successful starter.

Re: What Will Jason Campbell's Legacy Be?

Jason's Redskin legacy left a lot to be desired, his ultimate legacy is yet to be determined.

However at the same time the cries from the fan base were similar. Just give him a little more time, get him a line, get him some recievers, get him a real coach. I think the fans got tired of having to put in so much effort only to get back so much especially being surrounded in a division where recently everyone had a great QB but us.

I think he's a solid QB and has the tools to be successful with a team if they follow the Jaguars blue print from a few years ago when David Garrard got selected to a pro bowl in 2007. However I don't think he's the type of QB where you can put a team on his back.

He has a very high floor thanks to the combination of physical tools and work ethic but he seems to have a very limited ceiling as well.

He will always be respected around here though, and I think the class he carried himself with and that toughness kept him here longer then he would have been otherwise.

He actually reminds me a lot of Jose Theodore with the Caps this year. Theres time where he shows you just how good he can be but then all of a sudden he lays an egg and you're reminded as to why you have that uncomfortable feeling residing in the back of your head.
That's about the best way I've heard it summed up -- better than Patrick Ramsey. And that's not saying much.

What closed the book on him for me was in the second Dallas game at Fed Ex last year. With an empty backfield, a Cowboy DB was creeping up towards the line on an obvious blitz. Troy Aikman pointed this out, and said that this is one of the most basic cues for a QB to notice that he's going to be under pressure. That JC didn't notice it at this point in his career was telling.

He had chance after chance, and just didn't take the next step. It was time to move on.

And while I understand circumstances weren't always great around him, I think too many of us looked to that as an excuse for JC's underperforming.

I just can't wait for TO to sign with the Raiders so we can finally see Campbell to Owens
Owens would make JC a super star:cool-smil
