Campbell Was Playing For Zorn's Future?
Old news, but new to me: in his postgame interview with Comcast SportsNet's Kelli Johnson, Jason Campbell said he thought he was probably playing for Jim Zorn's future in the second half of the Bucs game. Highlights of that interview:
"We heard the boos on the first play," Campbell said. "That's something we can't focus on, something we can't worry about. Up to today I've been having a pretty good year. As a quarterback, you go through some tough times. And today the first half was one of those tough times. I felt like I was on an island about 20 hours from here. I was just trying to find my way, trying to keep battling....
"I came in at halftime and took a deep breath....I said the second half, I said our season's depending on what I do in this half. I said Coach Zorn's future's probably depending on what I do in this second half. My fate, you know, [is depending on] what happens in the second half. I was like, 'Everyone's watching. They want to see how are you gonna fight, how are you gonna bounce back, are you gonna be a guy that runs away, are you gonna be a guy that sticks in there and fights.' Because the best have thrown picks like this before in games, and they bounced back."
Chick Hernandez finally came back to this issue on Campbell's last question, and asked whether he can really function when worrying about the future.
"What i need to do from this point on is forget what everybody else is saying and just go out there and play my game and do it the way I know how to do it, whether you like it or not," Campbell said.
