what the hell happened with pick #163?

Posted by: coparker5 | April 24, 2010 1:37 PM | Report abuse

Skins got picks 174 and 219 overall from the Dolphins, for the 163rd.

This trade reminds me of when Jay Schroeder (sp?) ended up in Oakland. Unless suddenly Campbell becomes Rich Gannon, Campbell will look at his Redskin years as the "good ole days".

Adios, slug.

a 4th round pick from the raiders is as good as a late 3rd round....wish ya the best of luck JC!!! (just not against us)

Well - Jamarcus Russell didn't work out. I'm not the one to say if it was the offensive line not providing protection to the quarterback or that Jamarcus wasn't that accurate with his passing. You make the call. I do however wish him well.

And I hope Jason will be a better fit.

Jason Campbell will be fine, laserwizard. You're all over the Wash Post board bashing Campbell every chance you get as if it were something personal.

The only resemblance to that trade is that the same teams are involved. That fouth in 2012 ain't exactly Jim Lachey.

You're an idiot. JC was no slug - he was a very hard worker, but it didn't work out here, in part at least due to factors beyond his control. I bet you've never put on pads or played any sports at a high level, and I bet that you have no idea what it takes to perform at that level. Why don't you either keep your mouth shut, or show some class and wish him luck. Moron.

The Raiders have already extended JC for another year. I bet JC will enjoy playing for a team that isn't consistently putting him in a position to fail.

best of luck to you,Jason! davis got the deal of the year for you and he wants you. hope you are smiling and take raiders to SB!

DEADSKINS r stuck with an eagles has been, backed up by a bear/texan reject, and they deserve this.

What does JC, Ramsey, and Babe laufenberg have in common?

Adorable kids, lousy QBs, and a bunch of idiotic followers believing they were future all-pros.

Posted by: hock1 | April 24, 2010 2:14 PM | Report abuse

I thought we were getting a stud franchise QB in this draft Pike and Lafloure were still on the board. What the hell happen. What was our third string QB's name again? McNabb, Rex and ??? damn am I sad or what. Bring back Todd we will need him while we experiment putting a O-line together, good luck Donovan.

Jason Campbell had basically the same stats as McNabb, who was on a much better team with far better coaches. Jason was ranked higher than 17 other starters and was among the leading rushers for QBs in the league. JC improved while EVERYTHING around him collapsed. Though Zorn rarely called passing plays to the endzone, Jason still threw for 20 TDs and had a passer rating of over 86%. So how is supporting his accomplishments idiotic? You tell me--one of his s0-called followers.

A 4th rd pick in 2012? That's pathetic. We would have been better off keeping him for when McNabb gets injured. There's no way the coaches can think Rex Grossman is a better backup than Campbell.

JC stinks on toast. Have fun Oakland with a QB who never met a triple coverage he didn't like.

Posted by: mcoghlan | April 24, 2010 2:39 PM | Report abuse

Also, can anyone explain why they would draft a 4th TE instead of addressing an actual need? That's the one position on the team that is actually solid.

Posted by: wMurph | April 24, 2010 2:44 PM | Report abuse

I am not sure that Jason's style is a very good match for the West Coast offense. I think keeping Jason would have been more cruel than trading him even if he is a better backup than Rex Grossman. I hope he does great in Oakland.

Posted by: m_p_holmes | April 24, 2010 2:46 PM | Report abuse

The stats quoted in the end of the article about the trade tell it all. JC was a better quarterback than many, and he will do well. This will come back to bite the Skins at some level. Good luck Jason. laserwizard is the idiot on this comment page.

Oakland is dysfunctional. No one can succeed there.

Posted by: HughJassPhD | April 24, 2010 2:52 PM | Report abuse

Ditto the comments about the difficulty for ANYONE finding success in Oakland.

On the other hand, the Raiders made a good move.

So long Jason hello Colt.

No, but not because JC isn't good enough. Because it's Oakland.

Posted by: UberJason | April 24, 2010 4:12 PM | Report abuse

JC stayed classy till the end. the definition of professional is Jason Campbell good luck you deserved so much better. my new football mistress is the oakland raiders. hope D-Mc is worth it..

The Redskins should be ashamed how they treated this young man. Snyder is an idiot.

If you're the Raiders, this is the deal of the decade.

Best player available left on their board.

I think the Redskins did very well in this draft with what they had going into it. They had no leverage but managed to get a couple of players that are going to be big stud producers.
The WR from UCLA is awesome and a great replacement for Randle-el.
The TE that everyone is complaining about is going to give us the power running game and line blocking that we have been missing for a long time and the last two O linemen are huge.
Here we go gang. It's a new era and it will be great.

Anyone who votes YES to this hasn't been paying attention to the Raiders the last decade or so

Posted by: Bious | April 24, 2010 6:42 PM | Report abuse

He will not be successful but, just like here in DC, it wont be his fault. The Raiders are one of the few organizations in the league who are worse than the Skins.
Good luck Jason. You got screwed here.

Posted by: dbeins | April 24, 2010 7:47 PM | Report abuse

rex grossman is sorry. you guys just wait until every sideline pass he throws gets intercepted and run back for a TD. BTW, he can't throw downfield either and fumbles without even being touched by defenders. he can TALK a good game, say all right things and "act" like a boss QB, but he has a worse arm than brunell did at age 36 or however old he was when jason replaced him. lmao!

It is truly refreshing to see so many intelligent comments posted here. As to those who continue to paint Jason Campbell as a waste, go back to your knitting, you obviously don't know a thing about football. How many times was he sacked on step 2 of a 3 step drop, you football genuises? How many passes did he put on the money that those fabled Redskins receivers dropped? You actually look at his stats? Jason was the scapegoat for this sorry franchise for 2 years. Now you have an over the hill qb who will be out by game 4 if there isn't much better protection and a coach who hasn't don't anything since his HoF QB retired. So as for me, a lifelong Redskins fan, (go Sonny) and a Broncos season ticket holder for 20 years, I hope you don't win a game this year, and I bet your love affair witrh Shanahan lasts about a year. Didn't do squat once Elway retired and Terrell had to quit due to injury. Why you think he got fired by his BEST FRIEND, Pat Bowlen? For the Skins fans with class and intelligence, I feel so sorry for you. You deserve better. This organization makes the Raiders look smart. It wasn't always like it is now.

Good luck,Jason.Yes,he was treated poorly here.But Dan Snyder doesn't know how to treat anyone with decency.

seanmg, in case you didn't notice, it wasn't Danny who traded for McNobb..Allen and Shanahan MUST GO!

System changes. Bad OL. Dropped passes (good call someone). Queens. Snyder quick-fix mercenaries. And other unproductive stuff.. Although seemingly disproportionate to the rest of the league, I don't know if I buy that these problems are exclusive to the Skins. JC seems to have (had) the talent but maybe he lacks the necessary leadership. And for the past few years he looked a little insecure, slow and disinterested. He seems to have become damaged goods in DC, but maybe with a fresh start (and very little expectation or at least much less pressure) he can reach his potential. I'd like to see him at least add a little fire to his play. Wish him well; really glad we've moved on. GO SKINS!!

Posted by: Skinsfan32 | April 25, 2010 2:02 AM | Report abuse

Catching up news here.. I voted no for the same reason dbeins stated above. I understand JC's feelings toward the organization's behavior in the past 2 seasons trying to trade for another starting QB. Obviously it was time for him to move on and find another team who really wants him. Of course I hope he finds success because he's actually a good QB. His stats proves it despite shaky protection. I don't think Oakland's offensive line is better than the Redskins truly. Working with ex-Redskins Hue Jackson will do him good definitely. Maybe with the new QB at the helm, Oakland will be rejuvenated. I wish JC the best. He's a class act. He'll be missed.

That's because Schroeder took the Skins to the NFC championship game.. Schroeder still has the redskin record for most passing yards in a season.. in other words Schroeder was a damn good QB... Campbell sucks.
