Campbell finds road games easier right now

If the bye week was exactly what this Redskins team needed last week, a road game might be the best way for the offense to begin this next stretch of the schedule. Or so says quarterback Jason Campbell. Speaking with reporters today, Campbell said at this point in the season, it's easier for the offense to operate on the road.

"The reason you say that is because if there's a bad play or there's a throw-away or something, we know why we had to do it," Campbell said. "But from fans' standpoint, they don't understand. They think that everything's always open or everything always supposed to be done a certain way. You don't have to worry about the negativity. On the road, you can kind of regroup on the sideline and move forward."

After opening the season with a cushy schedule, the Redskins play at Atlanta on Sunday, the first of several tough games.

With a week of rest, Campbell said his ankle feels "a lot better than it was a week ago." He spent the bye week focusing on getting healthy, he said, and "letting go of a lot of the frustration that'd [come] from the first half of the season and trying to move forward."

In the team's last outing against Philadelphia, Campbell was sacked a season-high six times; he's been sacked 20 times through seven games. The only quarterbacks who've been sacked more are Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers (31), Kansas City's Matt Cassel (24), and Oakland's JaMarcus Russell (23).

With a patchwork line that's now missing left tackle Chris Samuels and right guard Randy Thomas for the season - and with tight end Chris Cooley out for several weeks - pass protection will continue to be a huge issue.

"There's nothing we can do at this standpoint than try to improve, try to encourage the guys that we have and just continue to work together," Campbell said. "As a quarterback, you can't worry about how many times you're going to get hit. It's part of the game."

From the Times:

Antwaan Randle El was informed of the Redskins' punt return by committee plan from the media. He wasn't happy about the expected demotion.

"Not at all," he said. "I haven't been productive, haven’t been [as productive as] what I expected."

Santana Moss and DeAngelo Hall are expected to be involved in the punt returns.

* Tight end Chris Cooley said he hopes to play again this year but is still getting around on crutches eight days after surgery to insert three screws for a broken right ankle.

"The tough decision ends up being on our organization in the next couple weeks of keeping a spot for me over that amount of time and taking the risk of whether I’ll be able to play or not," Cooley said. "If my ankle feels good, I’m going to play. It doesn’t matter what we’re doing as far as the team."

* Defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth did a rare group interview with several print reporters.

"We have to do something here," he said. "The losses are starting to pile up and if we get a few more, we can count ourselves out of the playoffs."

* Linebacker Robert Henson is looking forward to his regular season debut. He's on the kickoff coverage team.

"It’s been an adjustment [not playing] but if anything it’s helped because I’m seeing the game from a different perspective," Henson said. "You take football for granted until you’re sitting on the sideline."

* H.B. Blades and Byron Westbrook both are out for Sunday's game -- they sustained knee injuries on the same special teams snap. Westbrook said he expects to play against Denver.

*Quarterback Jason Campbell said his injured ankle is coming along. He was hurt early in the Eagles game, which prevented him from scrambling with any effectiveness.

"It’s better," he said. "We're still working on it. For the most part, it’s a lot better than it was a week ago."

Anyone else find this line funny:

"As a quarterback, you can't worry about how many times you're going to get hit. It's part of the game."

um....isn't that what you YOURSELF have been saying you've been worried about??

shut up, make some plays, or bench yourself...

The qoute from Zorn telling Thiesman that he did not get to his 15 play in his script gives us a lot of insight on Zorn's thoughts on play calling. I can see scripting the first series but after that you go where the game takes you. I 'm glad Sherm is calling, hopefully we will see better results after the break.

Basically what this joke of an NFL QB is saying is that the Redskins fans are idiots. We don't know enough about anything, and his incompetence can be chalked up to fan ignorence. Frankly, Jason Campbell is more than half of the problem. The sad part is we are playing Campbell in games now that would be precious for a rookie QB to get some reps in, but we have noone to take that spot. At 2-6 is when Gibbs pulled Brunell and put Campbell in during 2006. We have noone, no trade for Brian Brohm, or J. David Booty - nothing. We are going to let this failed project play another 9 games in a Skins uni and then throw him to the curb, and thats where he will belong -- I would be stunned if anyone signs him, maybe a CFL team, someone really hard up.

This has been the problem the whole season, Zorn does not call plays in the game to take advantage of the defense he calls plays he likes to run regardless of what the defense gives him. That is why his playcalling sucks.

I get so tired of these players acting like this is such a complex game that the fan is incapable of understanding.

Many of us played the game and simply weren't talented enough to get to the level they are on. We understand the difference between a throw-away because nothing was there and a bad decision or a slow decision.

Absolutely absurd these comments are.

Posted by: Original_etrod | November 4, 2009 2:23 PM | Report abuse

Nate's not behind him; I jumped off the bandwagon actually, after the Kansas City game.

One of the key qualities of a QB is to be a leader - in the '87 NFC championship game, with a tie score, Gary Clark went to Doug Williams and told him he would be open in the back of the end zone; not the play Joe Gibbs wanted to run; Williams called their play anyway and hit Clark in the back of the end zone for the game winning touchdown.

Does ANYONE here see that story as one where you could substitute the name Jason Campbell for Doug Williams, in any place in the story?

No, of course not. He won't even be in the league next year.

Really? Move forward to what exactly? Last time I checked you were 0-3 on the road. It's a sad time if it's easier for the offense to operate on the road and you still couldn't beat 2 previously winless teams.

Posted by: Moose33 | November 4, 2009 2:23 PM | Report abuse

Beans, I can understand him being frustrated with the lack of pass protection at times. It's not like the offensive line is in the top 10 in the league. We all know this.

But to call out the fans at home really kinda pisses me off. Say what you want, but when Clinton Portis had an issue with the offensive line he flat out said so. He didn't blame the fans he blamed the offensive line. Where it should have been placed.

Campbell needs to do the same and either tell his line to grab their nuts, or make it known to Snyder, Cerrato, and Zorn that lack of talent and depth among the offensive line is a BIG problem.

Of course we do.. what we don't understand is why the Skins haven't scored more than 17 points playing against some of the worse teams in the league?? And JC doesn't think there will be "negativity" on a raod game?? Well actually in Campbell's case that's probably true.. Atlanta fans will be so happy Zorn is still stupid enough to start JC..

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Ashburn, VA

Fans are now banned from bringing tampons to Fedex Field. Redskins General Counsel and COO David Donovan acknowledged the ban today. "It's a basic safety issue. Our quarterback, Jason Campbell, has been pelted with these things. He's been poked in the eye with a couple plastic applicators." said Donovan in a statement released today.

Posted by: Kenbeatrizz | November 4, 2009 2:37 PM | Report abuse

Uh, Jason, the reason why fans cheer for you in those other stadiums is because when you throw an interception, it benefits their team. It's not because they think you're a great quarterback. I just thought I would clear that up for you.

JC, more power to you. Get out of Washington. Go to Carolina, go to Cleveland, go to Tennessee. You're still a good hand, but you can't win here, not with a fan base more eager to see a washed-up Todd Collins or a never-ready Colt Brennan manage a pathetic offense. General Patton couldn't raise this collection of meat-n-bones to a level any higher than it is, which is to say, 2-14.

To me, Jason is always so defensive. Once he was on Lavar's show and he was asked about the fans being critical of his play and he was like "the fans don't see what I see on the field and they don't understand"

I also recall him saying something like "some fans just don't understand football, and I don't have time to explain it to them." Basically, he thinks Redskins fans are uneducated.

I wonder if he saw the video by Charley Casserly.

Many people on this blog know A LOT about football and probably have been watching football longer than Jason's been alive. But whatever, JC won't be here next year anyway. And who cares where we play? We suck equally both on the road and at home. Just stop making excuses!! I swear, I've never seen a team insult their fans more than the Washington Redskins! Dan banning signs, Henson calling fans dimwits, Cartwright and his "rant", now JC saying we don't understand anything.

Albert Haynesworth, voted one of the NFL's dirtiest players in a Sports Illustrated players poll, said he's not dirty.

"I'm not dirty," said Haynesworth, who tied Miami linebacker Joey Porter among defensive players.

"He ain't dirty," Hanyesworth said. "He play hard, too."

I think Jason Campbell's comments are the bitter rhetoric of a quarterback that has been coddled and sheltered. Now he finds the road is a little tougher, has worn out most of his excuses and now he retreats to the old standard "the only reason the fans think I'm bad is because they are not bright enough to see the sheer brilliance in what I do". What little admiration I had left for the guy is gone. It almost makes me happy to know that the offensive line will be waving guys in on Sunday.

I find that self hateful.

Posted by: MistaMoe

Interesting. Like who? Tyler Perry and his works? If so, I couldn't agree more. I never liked his stuff, but for some reason black people are fascinated over this cross-dressing dude.

He's the only one I can think of that I garner that sentiment from. Can you think of anyone else?

But Hey, Moe, it's all entertainment anyway. If you're worried about how a certain group of people will be projected due to how they're portrayed on TV, in music, or on stage, then you sort of have society pegged the wrong way.

My dad, who's probably around your age, told me when I was about 11 or 12: "F*** people". No matter what you do, what you say or how you carry yourself, there is going to always be people who simply don't like you. Whether they be black, white, brown, yellow, or navy blue.

I find it funny because like I suggested earlier, it seems like you would like to disassociate yourself from today's African-American culture.

"The reason you say that is because if there's a bad play or there's a throw-away or something, we know why we had to do it," Campbell said. "But from fans' standpoint, they don't understand. They think that everything's always open or everything always supposed to be done a certain way. You don't have to worry about the negativity. On the road, you can kind of regroup on the sideline and move forward."

This paragraph should appear in the foreward of his future autobiography "I Was a First Round Bust of a QB and Here's Who's to Blame". He doesn't have it between the ears. A real NFL QB couldn't care less what fans think or yell during a game...if he even notices. He's not a leader, he whines, he blames. He's a gentleman and a likable guy, but he will have no success in this league. Think about how many guys have come through this league who would've given ANYTHING to have a team invest so much in them and give them HALF the chance the Redskins have given JC. It's a shame...he has so much God-given ability. How happy do you think the Broncos' FO is they held out for Kyle Orton this past spring instead of taking JC?

I've been to every home game this year, and JC is right to the extent that some unknowledgeable fans do boo when he throws the ball away when no one is open. My problem with his comments is that he paints with too broad a brush. Most of the onlookers appear to know what's going on and don't open their mouths (except to eat or drink the ridiculously-overpriced food or beverages).

* Defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth did a rare group interview with several print reporters.

"We have to do something here," he said. "The losses are starting to pile up and if we get a few more, we can count ourselves out of the playoffs."

Newsflash Albert: You are not going to the playoffs. The Oline sucks(through no fault of their own), the QB is skittish and does not possess the mental traits required of the position, the head coach has no idea how to manage and call a game and SUBTRACTS from the QB's ability to overcome his deficiencies.

He's a first round pick, who, much like Rogers the team, and the fans had high hopes for. Please point me in the direction of where its wrong to blame both guys for less than mediocre play since being drafted. Rogers is 1/2 a corner back, can tackle well, but not much after that. Campbell is a great qb, if he has 10 second to set and throw, but not much if its anything less....

Can complete on a 3 step drop. Cannot even set on a 7 step drop before getting hit. If the first guy isn't open on a 5 step drop and has to start his progression, he gets hit. He finally started stepping up into the pocket by about Week Four, but the pocket collapses nearly every time. Agree that he cannot connect on a roll out.

I was at the Rams game and the Buccs games where the fans booed after the win. D-bags.

"But from fans' standpoint, they don't understand. They think that everything's always open or everything always supposed to be done a certain way."

Here is what JC doesn't understand. The booing in almost all of the cases is not for the intentional throw-away. We understand the concept just fine. It's a combination of the general disarray and lack of production of the offense. We're not booing because you randomly chose to throw the ball away with no pressure.

We're booing because you had to throw it away since the line can't give you 2 second to read the coverage. I've rarely heard the boos if JC over/underthrows a receiver, correct me if I'm wrong since I have not been at the games this year.

Sunday has a big FF Peeps matchup between Redcoat and myself. I lead the league in scoring, yet reside in 4th place, 1 game back. Redcoat is second in scoring and in a 3 way tie for the league lead.

Scoring wise, we're both about 100 points more than the 3rd highest scorer -- that'd be you Alex, who is 2 games back of the leaders.

Me, I'm averaging 100.1 points per game, Redcoat is averaging 99.9.

fwiw, the other two teams tied for the lead are in the middle of the pack scoring wise, but have the two lowest points against total in the league. Of course, a person has no control on the 'points against' part of the deal, its pretty much luck. Which goes to show why only people who check their sanity at the door play FF.

Bean, I remember at the time the position that was most needed was at DL.

Defensive linemen taking in round one of 2007 draft:

Gaines Adams
Jamaal Anderson
Amobi Okoye
Justin Harrell
Jarvis Moss
Anthony Spencer

Other Defensive players taken in round on one of '07 draft:

Patrick Willis - MLB
Darrelle Revis - CB
Lawrence Timmons - LB
Leon Hall - CB
Michael Griffin - S
Aaron Ross - CB
Reggie Nelson - S
Brandon Meriweather - S
Jon Beason - MLB

While I think it would've been great to have Peterson, I think it may be more disappointing that they passed on Beason and Willis. They could have had the MLB sewn up for the next 10 years easy.

RBs shine for about a good six and then that's it for them. And as far as most important positions go, it doesn't get anymore important than MLB.

This is true. I myself kick slang when I'm around my boys. I lax into it and I'm real comfortable with it. At the same time, I would not go to work or even attempt to talk to elderly folk this way because they will either have a problem with it or not understand where I'm coming from. It's about diversity and having flexibility of speech pattern. Or to use something analogous, you don't dress the same for all occassions. You don't wear jeans to a black tie affair. But it doesn't mean you change as a person. It's still the same you. Just coming from a different avenue of approach. Discernment is the only thing necessary. So this I agree with Red.

Something I disagree with though, if I have the correct understanding of what you said, is your view on black on black comedic crime. Lol! Man comedy is comedy. Tyler or whoever. IF it is meant to be taken as a joke, then laugh and/or get over it. Turn the channel. I don't define who I am as a person thru the eyes of another man or his vain attempt at ridiculing me or my "people". Like John Thompson said: It only makes a difference what someone else says about you if you value their opinion. Case closed!

Oh yeah..."F" JC and yes he is the Bama of the week, week, week...!!!! In fact, ain't that Bama from 'Bama?? Or is it Mississippi? Oh well...close enough! Stick a fork in him!
