Campbell Knows He's on the Clock

In this morning's paper, Jason Reid wrote about the "kewbie," as Jim Zorn says it, after catching up with Jason Campbell the other day. The first practice of training camp is at 8:30 Thursday morning, as if you didn't know, and Zorn will talk to media members at 12:30 today.

Among Campbell's other comments:

"No one has to tell me I need to push myself, I need to be the leader of the team and I have to set an example," Campbell said. "I know that, and that's why I work as hard as I do, because I want to be the type of quarterback who takes us to the next level. But you always have things you can work on, things you can do to improve, and one thing is I'm going to be a lot more vocal this year. I really think it's time for me to take that role, and I'm going to let all my teammates know that and see that."

Upon further review, reading that article on the O-line made me feel a lot better about that unit. If these guys are trimming down and getting leaner and stronger that gives them a fighting chance at not only improving their general performance, but also at staying healthy. Fingers crossed...

Please Jason Reid tell us something new. Your articles rehash everything we already know. Been like that since you joined the Post. Compare your content with the Post's new writer this morning who covered the O-line weight loss program with quotes from the Weight Loss Program developer and I am astounded by the newsworthiness of both articles. La Canfora is gone and you're on your own buddy. Tell me something new, for crying out loud.

"During a closed-door meeting in owner Daniel Snyder's office in April, Washington Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell listened attentively as Snyder voiced concerns about Campbell's performance last season. Snyder told Campbell he wants him to become a franchise quarterback, Campbell recalled Monday, but he has not reached that level yet in Snyder's opinion. "

See, this is the sh*t I'm talking about...who the f*ck does Snyder think he is telling Campbell that? How many QBs has he developed? How many players has he coached? He probably couldn't even throw a spiral to save his own wretched life and he's telling Campbell he needs to be a franchise quarterback? F*ck that.

JC is too classy and low key for this, but I wish to God he just sat there and said, "maybe if you stop changing coaches and coordinators and gave me some help on offense I'd already be the franchise quarterback you want!" He's got nothing to lose, he's already gone anyway.

This just highlights how bad off we are with this career @sshat as our owner...

OK, I'm tired of morons complaining about Snyder, talking about, "what does he know about developing Qb's or throwing a spiral..." well I'll let you in on a secret "brownwood26" He pays the bills! & that's all he needs to know about football. and as long as he does that, he has the absolute right to ask Campbell & anyone else on the team to step up his game. And YES JC needs to do that like 2 years ago! i agree with the Skins trying to bring in an upgrade at QB and still think we should keep trying. its all about providing the Team & Coaches with the best available talent. JC has shown what he can do already, or maybe Campbell needs a Vick on the team to light a fire under his feet. Just win! Let's go SKINS!!!!

Posted by: talent_evaluator | July 29, 2009 8:17 AM

You have every right to do that if you're involved and experienced in the day-to-day operations. As meddlesome as Snyder is, he's not in meetings or film study so he has no right to critique a performance he has no idea how to evaluate.

That's like the owner of your company whose office is in Los Angeles telling you how to do your job in Washington. He's got to rely on your superiors to handle you if you're not performing up to snuff because they deal with you daily. Him jumping in does nothing but usurp your supervisor's authority and make you pissed off.

Wait...I forgot, you're the semantics guy...maybe I shouldn't say "he doesn't have the right", so much as he doesn't have the expertise to make that call. JC's passer rating was right on par with anything Brunell put up as the starter here, and I don't recall Brunell getting called into the owner's office.

No, what I recall is Brunell getting benched in favor of JC. As for the rest of your rambling, Snyder has plenty of experts who advise him on whether JC is getting the job done, including all of us on RI. And the real test was when he tried to trade JC and the best offer he had was, what, a third rounder? I doubt that Snyder told JC anything that he hadn't already heard from coach Zorn.

Posted by: talent_evaluator | July 29, 2009 8:41 AM | Report abuse

Snyder is the owner of the Skins. He pays the players, wants them to succeed, and expects the team to win. He has every right to review his employees performance and set goals for the upcoming season.

It was the previous Washington Post reporters and sports editor who created the QB controversy in the first place. I believe team simply inquired about the availability of certain QBs as part of the off-season due diligence. It's not like the Skins traded Campbell, Orakpo, and Jarmon for a rookie QB as some on this blog professed...

Their starting QB is in the last year of his contract and for the first time in the second year of an offense. I'm confident that he will perform much better this year given a healthy OL, better OL depth, and more experienced skill players. The Seattle offense was pretty good at scoring and hopefully the Skins will be as well.

Snyder was right -- it's time for Campbell to become a franchise QB, score TDs, and win games for the Redskins!

Posted by: siris | July 29, 2009 8:46 AM | Report abuse

I have no idea what the problem is with the FO trying to upgrade positions. Campbell isn't a franchise qb I don't think that is even a question.

I question who he felt would be an adequate upgrade in Sanchez or Cutler but in terms of getting the job done there is no question JC didn't get it done.

Franchise QBs are made, not born. JC is better than his predecessor and whoever his successor will be. "Franchise QBs" aren't available in free agency. And to draft one you have to have patience, as apparently the Redskins don't since they're ready to pull the plug on Campbell after only 2 1/2 seasons.

Match up Campbell's numbers with Drew Brees early in his career. See what patience can do for a young QB.

The owner of the franchise has every right to sit his QB down and tell him to become a franchise QB. Although the chat would carry more weight in Campbell's eyes if the owner had demonstrated in the past that he knew anything about running a frachise.

Etrod while that is true it's pretty simple to figure out on his own.


Good point brownwood Except he wasn't 30+ coming off the worse season of his life by far and in trouble with the law oh and he's a QB.

It's just like the Vick thing. It's not that he's untouchable because of the dog fighting it's because he wasn't that good. If Payton Manning had been busted teams would be talking about redemption and falling over themselves to pick the guy up.

Yeah, agreed that the owner has the right to do pretty much what he wants, but that sort of undercuts Zorn's role as the leader of the team - typically, that should be avoided.

Posted by: JohnDinHouston | July 29, 2009 9:11 AM | Report abuse

Let's put it this way: would Dan Rooney have a sit down with his QB about how he's playing? Or Robert Kraft? Good owners leave that stuff up to the football experts he hired because ultimately it's their problem (since their jobs depend on it). Regardless of whether he's got a legal right to do it, Snyder's got no business doing it. Period. As the owner, he could walk out onto the field during the game if he wants to, doesn't mean he should.

I don't think we know this statement to be true yet. It is true he hasn't played to that level to date. However, that could be the fault of the FO for all the coaching changes, offensive philosophical changes, and the lack of a comprehensive plan of player acquisition. JC has taken the correct approach to answering this question in the offseason, and I'm hoping the hardwork and preparation manifests itself during the season in mor wins.

If that is your position, then we should see no more comments about JC's passer rating coming from you. I would venture to say that Snyder knows at least as much as any one of us because A) like most of us he is and has been a huge Skins fan for life and B) has spent the last decade in the company of some of the best minds in football not to mention spending time with the team. Now whether he uses that information to make the best decisions is certainly debatable but to say he doesn't know jack about football is ignorant. And to say that an owner should have no say in the performance of his employees is ridiculous.

I believe in Jason, another year with the same offense. D. Thomas has another year in the offense as well as Fred Davis. Let's just see Marko Mitchell become this years Marques Colston, and that will leave Santana open deep with big holes for CP. Our offense stalled because the passing game stunk. Let our big recievers body up these corners and big things will happen. All we have to do is get a lead, run the ball and let AH and company tee off on the opposing teams QB.

Why Vick will be a Redskin...
Dan's thought process..
>>>> Cost of obtaining Vick? Probably just the Vet minimum.
Return on the investment..

* Heightened worldwide Media attention on the "Redskins Brand" with the weekly storyline.."When will Vick play?" coverage, Means a tremendous increase in Redskins Brand power (ie. Sales and Profits).

* FedEx Field sell-outs (1 million Virginia Tech alumni in DC area).

* Vick on the bench as backup or active = Jersey sales.

* A full stadium means Huge concession profits.

All this for a vet minimum salary signing. Makes absolute business sense.

Most importantly the above Vick signing benefits will further increase the Skin's cash reserve in preparation for the impending removal of the spending Cap.
When that Cap is removed.. the NFL will become much like the MLB and the Cowboys and Redskins becoming similar to the Yankess and Red Sox.... Both using vast fan-based income to snap up top tier Free Agents.

When Brees was age 25 he went 11-4 had a 65% pass percentage and 27 td's to 7 INTS and went to the Pro Bowl. (He had 41 games under his belt by this time. JC has had 36)

By the time he was JC's age now he'd taken his team to an NFL championship and been voted first team All-Pro.

another thing people love to bring up our 2-6 finish, NOONE was expecting us to go 6-2. only a half a glass of water is a clearer example of looking at the cup as half empty.

OK the 'portis only broke 80 yards once stat' in AT LEAST one of those games he was 100+ in combined yards. Why the 'glass half empty' attitude??? Because yu don't like Danny or Vinny. Well they aren't the ones getting hit by the DeMarcus Wares and Brian Dawkinses.

Vick was at Redskins Park?? According to Yahoo sports referring a tweet from Cooley's bro.
http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shutdown_corner/post/Mr-Vick-goes-to-Washington-Redskins-Vick-rumor?urn=nfl,179216
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Dan's thought process..
>>>> Cost of obtaining Vick? Probably just the Vet minimum.
Return on the investment..

* Heightened worldwide Media attention on the "Redskins Brand" with the weekly storyline.."When will Vick play?" coverage, Means a tremendous increase in Redskins Brand power (ie. Sales and Profits).

* FedEx Field sell-outs (1 million Virginia Tech alumni in DC area).

* Vick on the bench as backup or active = Jersey sales.

* A full stadium means Huge concession profits.

All this for a vet minimum salary signing. Makes absolute business sense.

Most importantly the above Vick signing benefits will further increase the Skin's cash reserve in preparation for the impending removal of the spending Cap.
When that Cap is removed.. the NFL will become much like the MLB and the Cowboys and Redskins becoming similar to the Yankess and Red Sox.... Both using vast fan-based income to snap up top tier Free Agents.

JC's passer rating was right on par with anything Brunell put up as the starter here, and I don't recall Brunell getting called into the owner's office.

No but Brunell was benched and then cut.. I'm fine with it if they do the same to JC.

Just say no to Vick. Still do not understand Bugel's comments on the 'deepest' line we have had here. Wonder if Kendall will be brought back. With the aged Jansen and Kendall departed and replaced by Jabba the Hut and Docks are we really that improved? Maybe with expected development of some of the younger players. I know they brought some MD OL in as FAs so I'm thinking thats where the depth is coming from that Bugel is talking about...Heyer did pretty good and maybe they can repeat with some of the Terps they brought in.
