Matty, you are always the voice of reason! Kudos to you my friend! I agree 100% with you!
I like the Madden comment! :-P

Re: Gibbs: "We had a really good draft!"

Here's the difference. When Gibbs had all those great QBs - who was picking in the draft. hint: It wasn't Gibbs.

Correction: It wasn't ONLY Gibbs. Don't think Gibbs didn't have a say so in who he wanted on the team. Maybe not as much in the early years, but after he had a couple Super Bowl appearances under his belt, to assume he never had a say so would be naive.

Exactly.

I think there's this misconception that Beathard was 100% in charge of personnel, that's just not true. Gibbs has always had a say in personnel decisions.

Just add to that, I don't think Beathard had anything to do with developing the QBs after they were drafted. That was all Gibbs and the coaching staff. So if we trusted Gibbs to develop a guy like Mark Rypien to give us at least one season of glory then why not Campbell

but don't get me wrong, I get the argument that for what we gave up Campbell better give us more than one great season

Good point, I don't think it was Beathard that was coaching the QBs

I too, questioned the QB move, but it has been brought up in many posts how Gibbs is building the franchise and not just trying to "win now". I definitely agree before we have complete flipouts (offiss, you are freaking out dude), we trust in judgement even if it IS questionable. I too, would have liked Williams, but it seems there is a rhyme and a reason to it all when all the highly intelligent minds here have posted good arguments for it.

I Know!

But theres a reason, I am ususally, USUALLY, right on the money with my talent evaluation.

Now here's something you should know, Ramsey is a borderline genious, Brunell is a long time vet and pro bowler, and neither could run Gibbs offense. Now that is going to mean 1 of 2 things, either Gibbs offense was horrible regardless of who was behind center, or Brunell and Ramsey are just to dumb to grasp it, and may need another year of work to understand and execute it.

With that being said how long do you think it will take the wonderlik wonder to learn this system from the bench? Remember this is the day of salary cap and you can't keep a #1 on the bench for 3 to 4 years, and as I said in another post before we drafted him, he will be a long term waste of time and money, I hope everyone now understands that Brunell is our primary backup, PERIOD! There is no way this kid is getting on the field [legitamitly] for at least 2 years, at least!

Sorry if I am flipping out, but I get worked up when a team I have rooted for my whole life does something this stupid that I know will hold us back. Just like last year when I said no Brunell, he's the last QB I want in Gibbs pocket passing offense, and flipped when we gave up a pick and 43 mil, guess who was right? OFFISS, not Gibbs!

Has anyone heard 1 annalist, just 1, say what a great pick this was? Or we recieved great or even decent value for what we gave up? ANYONE?

I'm just commenting on the quality of the player. He's good.
Kind of a backhanded compliment, but you asked..

Re: Gibbs: "We had a really good draft!"

Actually I have heard a few analysts saying this was a great move. Not that I agree with it, but I'm OK with it.

Also, I am trusting the Skins to win the Super Bowl so the #1 pick for the Broncos next year won't mean shit.

Gil Brandt likes Campbell:

As does Terry Bradshaw

CZAR'S FRONT OFFICE TAKE (from Foxsports.com): Campbell was Terry Bradshaw's favorite QB in the draft, loving the kid's big-play arm and toughness.

Re: Gibbs: "We had a really good draft!"

The more I see reviews of Campbell. The more I think of them as "The Ramsey who can run."

"kid's big-play arm and toughness"

Re: Gibbs: "We had a really good draft!"

Campbell is a great player, I think he's good. However, when you invest in a young talented QB, it's not a need. I remember how everyone told me how good a QB controversey would be for the team last year. Let's just learn our lesson and let Ramsey try to play without someone riding his ass.

Re: Gibbs: "We had a really good draft!"

Like Gibbs said, if a quarterback lets stuff like this [drafting another QB] bother them, then they should not be your quarterback in the first place. So, if Ramsey is our guy, then the Campbell thing should have no effect on him.

Re: Gibbs: "We had a really good draft!"

Yeah he said that Campbell was a player they felt was too good to pass up on and felt he can be a long term Redskin for us. Gibbs spoke highly of Campbell's size and ability to use his legs to get out of trouble. Gibbs emphasized, however, that Ramsey is the guy now to lead us to championships.

This also reminds me of when the Skins drafted Rypien back around 1987 I believe. Doug Williams was our guy, but Rypien was being groomed for our future. Once Rypien became our guy, Gibbs went out and drafted Stan Humphries to be groomed as Rypien's replacement if something happened to Mark.
