Can't blame you. I think my 2007 Jacksonville comparison in the game thread rings true. It's not fair to Byron Leftwich to suggest the team wouldn't have made the playoffs with him at quarterback.

Campbell is lucky that he's still here, but he didn't do anything wrong to warrant dismissal.

I would agree he hasnt done anything to warrant a dismissal, but in the same breath he has done anything to warrent a contract extention. I would love to see him get that extention and lead this team to the playoffs, so lets start to see it. Yes only a couple quarters of a "sample" to rate his preformance so far, but this is his 5th year. I want to see the growth and the experience show now..growth and experience synonymous with production. Its my expectations at this point in his career. I fear after the first official game I will hear the excuse "its just the first game, he will get better as the season goes on" and I dont find that acceptable at this point. I dunno, are my expectation too high? I feel like they are, but I just want to see JC first look comfortable in offense and succeed.

I am not calling for Collins (yet) but he simply had a terrible game. For a guy who's career as a starter is on the line, he needs to pick it up.
Can't argue with this, Campbell needs to play better

Re: "Jason Campbell struggles against the Steelers"

Of course you'd like to see JC play better but I'm honestly not concerned based on what little we've seen so far.

Sounds like the gameplan with JC was more about taking some deep shots.

Both of which hit the hands of Steelers defenders before they hit the hands of our WRs....

Just saying.

Re: "Jason Campbell struggles against the Steelers"

Also in a driving rainstorm, just sayin

Hey I wish some of those deep throws were completed but again, I'm not overly concerned about what we've seen so far. You have to keep the preseason in perspective.

Re: "Jason Campbell struggles against the Steelers"

Campbell has 2 more preseason games to go. Next week should show more about where he's at. Think they'll practice deep routes this week?

Did you just use the word: "Perspective": on a Redskins thread discussing quarterback play?

How's this for perspective- we haven't had consistent QB play for a decade.

I'm not overly concerned, but I'm concerned.

Ok, then if rain was the issue, why take deep shots? Why not intermediate routs to keep the chains moving? We already know JC has the arm.

Re: "Jason Campbell struggles against the Steelers"

I think more than a production problem, Campbell now has a perception problem on his hands. The only way to cure that is either by winning games or piling up Tom Brady type numbers. Okay, maybe not Tom Brady numbers but Matt Cassel or Donovan McNabb stats will do just fine.

Seriously folks, as much as I love Campbell, at some point he has to outperform the hand he's been delt. That's what the NFL is all about. That's what makes it different from college football or high school football or Pop Warner. These guys get paid to do this shit. They've mastered the art of winning or have a penchant for making clutch plays or tossing the fade pass in the corner of the end zone. What words come to mind when you hear the name Jason Cambell? Potential maybe?

Campbell can continue pile up a bunch of few so-so and mediocre outings, but until he exeeds exceptations in either wins or individual stats peopole will ALWAYS have reservations about him. Even if the Skins go 8-8 this year, God forbid, Jason Campbell needs to have 12-4 stats under his name.
