Campbell's Goals Against the Patriots

Jason Campbell met with the media Wednesday afternoon, long after he and his Redskins teammates had come off the practice field. For a quarterback of an NFL team, Campbell is incredibly laidback and affable with the throng that covers his team. But here, in the days before the Redskins' third preseason game, he appeared eager to jump on a question about whether he felt pressure after going 1 for 7 for 10 yards in just more than a quarter of play during last week's victory over Pittsburgh.

"It's everyone else trying to put pressure on me," he said. "Right now I'd say it's more negative than it is positive. Everyone talks about 1 for 7. Come on. There's games when I've been 20 for 23, almost, in games before. One-for-7 is something I'm definitely not concerned about. We [were] trying out some new things. Everyone was saying, 'You never go downfield.' Well, we tried to go downfield twice. We didn't connect on them, but at least you put the fear in the defense that you will go downfield. You have to continue to keep doing it."

Campbell, it seems, is hyper-aware of the discussion surrounding his performance, even before the season starts. Friday night, when the New England Patriots visit FedEx Field, comes a chance for him to at least temporarily quiet his critics. What would constitute a success against the Patriots?

"Just go out there and execute," Campbell said. "We want to score points, of course. That's one of our goals and things that we want to do, but one thing for us is to go out there and just get into a rhythm. We really haven't played a whole lot. First game played maybe 10 plays. Last week was one quarter. Put together a 14-play drive but didn't finish it. Would like to finish those, but it was a great defense we went against, and to have a 14-play drive is a positive sign."


Campbell's answer acknowledged that the Redskins' first-team offense hasn't yet scored a touchdown in the preseason. Friday, they'll get their most extensive chance. Coach Jim Zorn said Campbell and the regulars will almost certainly play the entire first half. The offense will then be turned over to second-year man Colt Brennan and rookie Chase Daniel, who are battling for the No. 3 job. Zorn said veteran backup Todd Collins likely won't see time against New England.

Because of their limited playing time thus far, Campbell said the first-team offense --which played without top receiver Santana Moss and leading rusher Clinton Portis in the exhibition opener against Baltimore -- hasn't had the opportunity to get in a rhythm. What, he was asked, does a rhythm feel like?

"Getting some throws under your belt, getting some completions," he said. "It's kind of like getting into a flow, whatever you do. Getting into the flow of a game. You just feel like you're not even thinking about things, because once you get yourself going, whatever it takes to get you into a rhythm."

With the starters likely to see only limited time in the final preseason game -- Sept. 3 at Jacksonville -- the New England game would seem to be the most important of the exhibition season for Campbell.

"If you notice, we said that going against the Carolina Panthers [last year] and we got thumped, big-time," Campbell said, remembering a 47-3 shellacking in the penultimate preseason game a year ago. "We couldn't do anything. And we started the season off 6-2, so it's hard to say that. But definitely you do want to come out and play hard, because we're going against one of the premier teams in the National Football League over the last couple of years, and it's a great test for us, an opportunity to see what we can do."

For the preseason, Campbell is 4 of 13 for 48 yards with neither a touchdown nor an interception, good for a quarterback rating of 43.1. Daniel, who made his pro debut with a 6-for-8, two-touchdown effort against Pittsburgh, leads Washington quarterbacks with a 134.4 rating. Collins (13 for 20, 109 yards, no touchdowns and one interception) has a 58.1 rating, while Brennan -- the incumbent third-stringer -- has struggled at 7 for 17 with two interceptions, a 17.7 rating.

Those numbers, Campbell believes, are meaningless, because they have been accumulated in August. But he knows that the scrutiny of his performance

"I think with the defense that we have that we will have a lot of opportunities this season to get the ball back," he said. "And when you get the ball back you want to take advantage of those. You want to put points on the board."

I'm sure JC17 is smart enough not to read RI and have to endure all the criticism he gets here, but I'd say to his comments, Right on, Jason. I'm glad to see he still has the confidence to lead the team, and while I admit his accuracy againt Pittsburgh (and on deep balls last year) needed improvement, I think he'll get better throughout the year. Hopefully a good outing tomorrow to quiet the critics....

Granted JC may be affable and laid back, but I really think he needs to set some higher goals than to just go out, execute a few plays, maybe score a few points (or not) and get into the rhythm of a game. He could just as easily accomplish these mediocre goals by staying on the sidelines and dancing with the Redskin cheerleaders.

If there was a single player who read RI on a regular basis I would be shocked. Probably plenty of Redskins employees, but I can't imagine a player except maybe someone checking after JR told them they were profiled or something. Maybe I am totally wrong on this though.

It makes me think of a contest: if you had to guess which players were actually regulars, what would you come up with? I haven't come up with much thus far, except me as equipment manager and towel boy.

We just need 1 more player to keep to draft schedule - sign up with Nate if you are interested (I think it is not quite full)

Now, on to the topic du jour: Campbell. I think he'll be fine this season. I remember many people doubting that Eli Manning was a franchise QB before and even during the beginning of the Super Bowl season - he did not have spectacular numbers; Tiki Barber was saying he was not a leader; he had not won many big games; etc.

And remember our own Redskins QB history: Doug Williams was a washed up backup until the end of the 1987 regular season. And he caught fire. It can happen anytime, and Campbell has the tools...

If Campbell can't do it now, he'll never do it. Let's give him a chance though.

How about using more than one QB more frequently? As it is, the defenses plan quite effectively for the starting QB and schemes. What would be the disadvantage of playing Todd, or Chase for a series here and a series there? It is nothing against the starting QB, it is just a scheme thing. How about ARE in the backfield?

Coach Zorn, we just think the offense is too predictable. What is the down side of variety?

Following the Iggles/Jags game via the game tracker. It's acting a little funny, but is still providing moments of really excellent schadenfreude. Such as the Eagles having 1st & goal from the 1, McNabb fumbling at the 8, and Jax scooping it up and taking it 92 yards to the house. Currently 14-3 Jags. Philly fumbled again and the Jags are 3rd & 7 at the Philly 31.

I can't wait until after the first half is over tomorrow night and the Wapo sports writers are busy writing their stories and thinking up new excuses for the inept one JC. I am approaching this season hoping JC sucks so bad that Zorn will have no choice other than replacing him. The problem is Zorn doesn't realize that he should be replaced now.

Posted by: theBozyn | August 27, 2009 8:27 PM | Report abuse

I really dig Jason as a person and I would love to see him succeed. Unfortunately, I just don't see it happening here. His own tendencies, his personality, the Zorn system, the suspect O-line have conspired against him. Watching the game right now would anyone not take Byron Leftwich over JC17 in a heartbeat.

To be an elite QB, you have to be able to make something happen with your arm from time-to-time. This is not JC's strength. For a while last year, particularly in the Saints game, I thought I saw flashes of it, but then the indecisiveness and tentativeness returned. It gives me no joy to say this, but it is becoming increasingly apparent that JC just doesn't have "IT"

Oh, and by the way,

JASON:

Please ignore us. We don't get the opportunity to play because we weren't endowed with superior athletic abilities, and thusly, we don't really get it. We're just guessing unless one or two of us have actually played some NFL ball. And right now, no second guessing is allowed. But in the off season, reflect and remember, no one but yourself can quiet sharp criticism and that by performing in a superior way on the field in 2009. Good luck.

14 play drives are fine and dandy, but what about the 4-6 play drive? Campbell's good for 1-2 long drives a game, but he needs to show he can mix in the occasional short drive highlighted by 1-2 big plays. Too many opportunities for bad things to happen over the course of a 14 play drive. As bad as he's looked in the pre-season and as average as he will always be, I'm sure he'll be no worse than last year, and maybe even a little better. If the D is all world and the running game is effective, the Skins could have a Titans-esque season.

If Marko Mitchell has another good outing tommorow night I don't see why he can't be considered for the number 2 spot. He is one player who looked like he has "it", at least he did last Saturday.

I'm glad to see Malcom Kelly still healthy.

Was Pittsburgh's returner Logan that good or do our coverage teams need to pick it up?

Our first string offense needs to score some points tommorow night and I don't mean field goals.

Marcus Mason is a better runner than Ladell Betts.

I want to see JC have a good game tommorow, I want to see JC have a great season this year, but when you still see the same negative traits that you saw last year, the year before,...... well....?

The Patriots beat the crap out of us year before last; come on Redskins come out with the same fire and intensity you had last week and lets bust the Patriots in the mouth, and even though its preaseason, beat these MF's and make Tom Brady wish he was somewhere doing a photo shoot for GQ.

Do you brag about your statisitics when your completion rate is high because you throw passes 6-8 yards downfield or complete a lot of 'smoke screens'?

I'll take credit for being one of the first bloggas on the M Mitchell bandwagon.

But I also think he must earn the spot at 3rd receiver and not have it given to him.

I'd like to see some offensive sets featuring M Kelly and Marko flexed wide with Moss and Cooley working underneath.

But for that to happen, Marko must show he has it when the real bullets are flying.

No real player wants anything handed to him.

"Would 5'10" versus 6' really make a difference? What's the cutoff on "too short"?70 inches versus 72 inches: that's about 3% shorter. I'm not sure how to calculate how much worse that makes your field vision, but it's got to be in the single digits, percentwise, I would think.
But what if your brain works faster, you go from seeing things to releasing the ball faster, you react faster, and you've got nimble feet? Surely, if you're better in these areas, then at a certain point that overcomes the height problem. . . .
Posted by: farstriker"

Sure. It's a disadvantage, not a fatal one. But IMO in the NFL a QB who's 6' doesn't have much advantage on somebody who's 5'10" because they're both too short to see easily over a bunch of 6'5" linemen. On the other hand, a QB who's 6'4" has more of an advantage over a 6'2" QB, because he really can see over the line better than the shorter man.

You notice that a shorter QB like Flutie was a lot more effective out of the pocket than buried behind his 0-line.

The spread offense that you see in college really makes things easier for the height-challenged.

Posted by: Samson151

I recall watching a game a few years back and Esiason was the analyst. And he made a comment that went something like this "I just noticed something, This QB has trouble seeing over his lineman."

And it made sense, the QB's eyes were below the shoulder pad level of the linemen. The QB he was talking about ... michael vick

Vick ran for one yard on his lone rushing attempt. He completed all four of his passes for 19 yards, flipping the ball forward twice to rookie tailback LeSean McCoy and throwing a screen pass to wide receiver DeSean Jackson. Vick did have some zip on one pass, a 13-yard completion to wideout Hank Baskett.

Donovan McNabb, after starting the game at quarterback for the Eagles, sometimes lined up at wide receiver with Vick on the field at quarterback.

This is the kind of mixing up I was talking about earlier. Redskins need to add a ton of crazy formations and confusing plays. That's is a Joe Gibbs affliction that has stayed with the Redskins. No gimmick plays.

Posted by: 4thFloor | August 27, 2009 9:47 PM | Report abuse

This team needs more playmakers who can score or make something happen.(Portis,Moss,and Cooley alone aren't gonna do it)Strike some fear in opposing teams and make our team exciting to watch again.

Somebody who can make something happen, also in the return game.

As of now, I see potential in M.Mitchell, M.Mason, and D.Dorsey, and C.Daniels, we'll know more after tommorow night.

Lastly, Zorn needs to mix things up and add some wrinkles, gadgets, unpredictable personnell packages etc. to the offense. The offense is too traditional and predictable.

Wes Welker v Santana Moss

Who do you take?

(no, you can't take Moss with T Brady, sorry)

Still confused?

I say they are even, no matter for what the numbers say:

'08 Moss Rec 79 YDS 1,044 AVG 13.2 TDS 6

'08 Welker REC 111 YDS 1,165 AVG 10.5 TDS 3

Maybe the 22 catch difference lies in how they are used.

What helps Welker is that teams watching R Moss deep cause space to open for Welker to expliot.

This suggests that perhaps the best use for Moss is at the slot where his punt returner skills and speed sets him free to work underneath.

He might be easy to cover split wide. But in the slot, he can be moved around to multiple spots.

That's why the development of either Marko or Kelly is important: their big frames working deep should open up the field for Moss and make the 'who do you pick' choice easier.

In my mind, if Moss is used like Welker, maybe you can say they are both just as producitve.

Or the same.

I agree, Samson. I do not like lil bro. RedSkinHead had a definition that I really like earlier today:

Put aside all of your stats about Campbell's low interceptions and his QB rating. Statistics can be skewed in just about anyway preferable to make a specific point. A good QB has leadership skills. He holds the players around him accountable and he holds himself, most of all, accountable for the things within his power to change. He leads with a passion that is contagious. He makes the players around him want to play better, not because of sympathy, but because they see he holds himself to those higher standards. Look at JC in the huddle. You get the impression this is a guy who whispers in the huddle. Look at his words in the media. Is there an ounce of passion there?

Compare Campbell to Steve McNair. McNair almost won the super bowl with his will to win. Compare Campbell to Farve (the young one, not the old one). Could you imagine a two minute drill where Campbell was yelling players into position?

There's a saying about timid versus aggressive: "I'd rather tame a tiger than goose a mouse." Campbell is a mouse. The Redskins need a tiger.

I've already penciled in C Daniels as the 3rd quarterback.

And if things are going bad in week, say, ten, why doesn't he get a shot to start seeing how both Collins and Campbell should be jettisoned in the event of a collapse?

I'm just saying.

Moss probably would be feared more in the slot than outside. And his speed and running ability would create huge mismatches against LB's and safeties, but as you say Moe it would be inherent on the development of M.Mitchell, D.Thomas,and or M.Kelly on the outside.

He would virtually be unstoppable, and A.R.E. would be dispensible( trade for a tackle?) since his days of returning punts are already over.

"14 play drives are fine and dandy, but what about the 4-6 play drive? Campbell's good for 1-2 long drives a game, but he needs to show he can mix in the occasional short drive highlighted by 1-2 big plays. "

Thats another thing..Zorn and Vinnie want to play long drive, time-consuming ball-control ball with the dink and dunk WCO, which is not what Campbell was drafted for initially anyway..He was drafted to be the Second Coming of Doug Williams and the Gibbs smashmouth offense..Todd Collins , Colt, and Daniel all seem better suited to the WCO than square-up Jason the Howitzer..Zorn inherited Jason- not his ideal choice, I'm sure..I support Jason, but he's been overcoddled-I want to see Chase Daniel..

Doubt if that'll be their standard operation mode in the regular season, but who knows. Hell let them confuse themselves to a loss every week for all I care.

On the flip side, we hardly EVER do anything unorthodox, just basic personnell, basic formations, basic traditional type plays, Zorn needs to throw more curve balls, give defenses something else to have to plan for.

JC knows he'll get paid the same this season -- win, lose or draw. He also knows that barring a major miracle, he won't be back here next season -- except perhaps in a visiting team's uniform as their 2nd or 3rd string QB. But in the meantime, he'll still cash all his checks -- and laugh all the way to and from the bank. Hence, JC ain't bothered (really don't give a damn) about scoring, moving the football, completing passes, managing the clock, or anything else that might be associated with winning.

To be fair it was the first season for a new bunch of coaches with a new offense for the players. It pretty much had to be basic. I expect it to be a little more intricate this year. Next year would be the whole offense implemented (provided their is a next year for Zorn.) And I hate to say this but I agree with Frak.

I also don't know how the coaching staff could make it any easier for him -- as they've over-simplified even the most basic plays, while trimming the play book down to about seven basic plays: run left, run right, run up the middle, screen left, screen right, short slant in and short slant out.

They've also shortened the field in front of him to 10 yards or less, moved him out from under center and set him back at shotgun to take longer snaps, kept in extra blockers to give him even more time to read the defensive line rush and decide when to throw the ball away, and generally continued to tolerate his dim witted and slow footed mediocrity for five years now and counting.

But even after all that, JC still can't pass and still can't run, and he certainly won't ever be able to move the chains, rally the team or score points.

And now they're telling him to ignore the critics? Yeah, he may as well do that too. He's ignored everything else that's fundamental to winning football.

"Moss probably would be feared more in the slot than outside."


That's the general theory.

The best receivers--in terms of guys who are tough to cover and match up against--are in the slot.

Not every team can but A Johnson out there like the Texans, but most could put a shifty speed type guy in 'trips' and 'bunch' and 'double slot' sets like the cards do with Boldin and Fitzgerald and rip a secondary a new a-hole.

Of course, it helps to have a quick thinking, accurate quarterback for that to work.

Hopefully, tomorrow Mr Campbell will quiet his critics by showing that he is one.

Incomplete diagnosis for Roy Williams
Posted by Mike Florio on August 27, 2009 10:56 PM ET
A source with knowledge of the situation tells us that X-rays on the collarbone of Cowboys receiver Roy Williams were unexpectedly negative.

Multiple sources tell us that the initial diagnosis was a broken collarbone. One source tells us that Williams himself told multiple teammates that the collarbone was broken.

For now, Williams has gone home for the evening. He'll ice the area, and the team is expected to conduct an MRI on Friday.

We apologize for jumping the gun on this one. We assumed (ass-you-me) that the information was based on an X-ray, and it's our fault for not ensuring the proper degree of clarity.

So it's good news for Williams and the Cowboys.

Unless the MRI shows a break.

I don't think they simplified the offense because Jason couldn't grasp it. I imagine they simplified the offense because the line couldn't block well enough to execute it -- particularly the passing game.

I can't think of any evidence to support the notion that Jason is either 1) dumb or 2) slow-footed. He's no gazelle, but he's made himself into an effective running QB.

Maybe Vic1 was just ventilating after a bad commute. There's certainly no substance to his remarks.

Nate has to fix our league. Just realized during the draft that you can only have 1 K and 1 D/ST. Thing called a bye week. So either you have to cut your picik or go without. Gotta fix that.

And for crying out loud, how Zornskins winds up with romo 2 years in a row ... he is a darn traitor

And fwiw -- I'm looking to trade Manning. The Manning you'd want. Peyton. I'd like something in a good RB in return. Though a top WR would be of interest as well. I'm willing to be creative. And yes Nate, that means you with your Carson Palmer, who has 4 games vs the Steelers and Ravens 'D'. Manning is a major upgrade ...

cL, you did put together a really strong team.

Zornskins ... I'd trade some WR talent for some RB talent, but you're RBs are from philly and dal ... unless you want to toss Adrian Peterson my way ...

Marcus and Marko are getting in to a rythm.Portis will not be in football shape by Sept.13.He will require many spells in relief by Betts,despite Mason's continuous efforts.How do you cut Mason?I would love to see him in the backfield,you need a young hungry unproven back on the roster.Confirms my opinion that running backs are a dime a dozen.For instance,if we had no quality,proven starting Tailback on the roster at the start of camp?"No problem mon",Edge James,Deuce McCallister,Fred Taylor,Sammy Morris,Warrick Dunn,not to mention Marcus Mason and Betts who are already on the roster.

Hey, did I mention that I'm seeing a home game this year? This will be my first since 2002 or 2003, can't recall which.

My boss is sending me to the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) conference in Baltimore at the end of next month. (NIEM is an XML standard used by various government agencies to streamline data sharing. Being the small-government type, I have mixed emotions about it, but we do a lot of state IT consulting and we used it on one of my last projects.)

Anyhow, the conference is only 3 days, but Mrs. Freakzilla and I are going for 10 days and visiting family and friends before and after. My company's paying for my travel and travel days, so I only have to take 2 days of vacation to swing the whole thing.

My dad & I are going to the Week 4 game vs. the Bucs. Got tickets in section 142, right-side 45 on the Skins side, 4 rows from the top of the lower bowl. Should be awesome seats. Hope the weather is nice.

I've been part of RI from the beginning, in different names over the years since 2005. It pains me to say it, but between spammers that can't be controlled and JR's "filet mignon" updates, this blog now officially bites.

The Redskins have done at least one right thing in the last year - hire a guy named Matt Terl as their official blogger. It's better than this stuff, for sure.

Later!
