Campbell prepares for whatever Monday brings

Washington Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell was taking things slowly Tuesday during another rough time in Ashburn.

"Just going to get some treatment," Campbell said in a phone interview. "Just trying to stay positive and get ready."

After being benched at halftime in Washington's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, Campbell is expected to have a heavy workload again in practice this week as Coach Jim Zorn officially named him the starter for Monday night's game against the Philadelphia Eagles at FedEx Field.

"I haven't been told that yet," Campbell said when informed of Zorn announcing his decision on his radio show Tuesday. "I haven't talked to him about that, I don't know what to say about that, but I'm just going to get myself ready whether it's me or" backup quarterback Todd Collins who starts.

Campbell struggled in the first half of a 14-6 loss to the Chiefs at FedEx. He completed only 9 of 16 passes for 89 yards and had an interception on a desperation pass to the end zone as time expired in the half.

The fifth-year player had a 46.1 quarterback rating, and Zorn turned to Collins, a longtime backup who led the team to four consecutive victories and a playoff berth in 2007 after Campbell's season was cut short by of an injury. After providing an early spark against the Chiefs, however, Collins also struggled.

In six games overall, Campbell is completing 65.6 percent of his passes for 1,197 yards and six touchdowns with six interceptions. His 84.3 passer rating is tied for the highest of his career. Although Campbell has been named the starter, Collins has been told to "be ready," league sources said.

"Right now, all I'm trying to do is just do whatever I can to help my team win," Campbell said. "It's really not about one person - it's about all of us. We all have to do our part to be successful, and I'm always going to try to do that."

DeAngelo Hall gives free advice to Jim Zorn
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on October 20, 2009 3:05 PM ET
By now, Redskins coach Jim Zorn may be used to having his decisions questioned by his bosses.

One of his players is also happy to help. Cornerback DeAngelo Hall said that taking Jason Campbell out of Sunday's loss was the wrong move.

"As far as the change of benching Jason in the second half, obviously that didn't work. So that's not the change you need," Hall said. "I think if I was the guy, I would've left Jason in . . . I don't think that was the right move. Coach made that move. Ain't nothing I can do about it. He made that move, he had to live with it."

Hall's play this season, lovingly highlighted by Cris Carter Monday night, has been spotty. It's probably never a bright idea to question your coach's strategy, but it seems especially short-sighted from a player like Hall.

The good news for DeAngelo is he'll have nothing to complain about this week.

Zorn has confirmed an earlier report from ESPN's Matt Mosley that Campbell will start Monday night against the Eagles.

Gannon compares Redskins to Raiders
Posted by Mike Florio on October 20, 2009 3:12 PM ET

Already persona non grata in Oakland, former Raiders quarterback Rich Gannon (who also once played for the Redskins) might not be getting the red-carpet treatment the next time he's assigned to work a game at FedEx Field.

During his Tuesday show on Sirius NFL Radio (via Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post), Gannon compared the situation in Washington to the morass in Oakland.

Gannon shared his observations from the perspective of a 15-minute sit-down with owner Daniel Snyder. (It's unknown whether Gannon tried to order the "gabagoo.")

"Well, you know, ironically enough we were kind of going back and forth, between talking about the situation in Oakland," Gannon said. "Honestly, this is crazy. And I'm sitting there saying, 'Is this all that different than in Oakland?' And I didn't want to insult him, but certainly I thought the situation was dire."

So what does Gannon think about the latest move, with coach Jim Zorn designing the game plan and someone else calling the plays?

"It's a mess," Gannon said. "And now they're gonna turn to a guy in Sherm Lewis that's been out of football for five years. I mean, he was lured out of retirement to work as a consultant, 'another set of eyes,' was what Vinny Cerrato said. I don't think it's something the coaches wanted. He doesn't even understand the terminology. When I sat down and talked with some of the coaches, they said, 'Listen, this guy's been out of it, we have different terminology, different verbiage.' My sense is the coaches aren't happy about it. And they don't have time, the coaching staff, to stop and to bring Sherm Lewis up to speed. And I think that this is actually going to turn into a disaster for this organization."

Gannon's assessment meshes with our Week Six power rankings, regarding the No. 27 team in the league: "So the head coach is good enough to still be the head coach, but not good enough to call the plays instead of a guy who spent the last five years calling bingo numbers? Yes, the NFC finally has found its answer to the Raiders."

Gannon's comments ring pretty close to what I sense as well.

The coach is in over his head. Vinny is a huge problem. A play caller who has been out of football for 5 years makes little sense. Our scheme is vanilla, which goes back to the coach, though injuries would seem to play a role as well.

In any case, the theme is

"Hey why don't we give (fill in the blank) a shot as (fill in the blank)?

Pick the guy, then pick the role:

What happens if (highly unlikely) this team starts scoring points and winning. Lets say that the playcalling change works or Campbell showing more intensity after being benched or the team rallies around Zorn. Could Zorn keep his job? They didn't fire him at 2-4 so if he goes (again unlikely) 8-2 the rest of the way and makes the playoffs could they justify firing him then?

You fail reading comprehension 101, hock0. The partial quote attributed to Campbell ended at "or." The writer added the rest. But don't let the truth or fact stop you from playing with yourself. Everyone knows the offensive line is creaky and leaky. Yet Campbell completes 65% of his passes, and of his six interceptions, one was a Hail Mary. But we all know black quarterbacks rarely get a break. Especially from the ignorami.

This week's FFUpdate

In a weekend that rivaled real NFL games for thrills, the Hamster league fantasied their guts out.

Ina clash of titans, first place Suzanne's Trippin Billies (6-0) rolled over 2nd place Dealer (4-2). Dealer had the odds against him with many players out on a BYE week, but when the score was 100-8 at the end of Sunday afternoon, well, the writing was on the wall, the floor, the ceiling, the driveway ... With Shaub, Hines Ward and MJD all scoring 25 points or more, the final score was 144-36. Suzanne at 6-0, has a 2 game lead over 3 teams.

Zornskins (3-3) clashed with my Salmon (4-2) team, using his iggles and Seahwaks. Well, those birds much have been nesting because they didn't show up Sunday, resulting in a surprisingly easy win, 124-61, behind Thomas Jones' 36.

The RealSkins (3-3) faced the 1 win, BYE week riddled Alpa Chino team and the result was an upset special. Alpa (2-4) rode 31 from Drew Brees and 25 from the Packer defense to a 110-57 win. Hasselback and the Vikings defense both scored negative points on the day for the Realskins.

In a battle of 2-3 teams looking to get to .500, the Coproliths (3-3, and what's a Coprolith?) took care of cL's Bombers (2-4) with an impressive 118-71 win. While Randy Moss had a huge game with 32, it was balanced scoring that carried the day, as only Copro's kicker failed to get into double digits.

The formerly winless KoolAid Kids (1-5) knocked off E Funk, 83-43. Funk (3-3) had 3 starters get shut out, while Brady led the Kids with 39. Its worth noting that KoolAid had a staggering 109 points sitting on his bench!!

The Stweengs (4-2) trailed by SFSkin's Butz (1-5) team by 2 points, heading into Monday Night. It all rode on LT's shoulders and LT came through, resulting in a 53-45 final. Fortunately for the Stweengs, Butz had left 77 points sitting on her bench.

I actually don't think Zorn is over his head. Like a lot of new head coaches, he needs to improve game management, but I think the "vanilla" and "scaled back" characteristics of the offense is a recognition on his part that he has very little talent at the core of this team (the line). We can't protect and we can't run block. Nobody could have been successful.

When he got here he said he would need three years to get this offense in place. Apparently the Skins were fine with that at the time. Fickle Danny strikes again.

Over in the FF Peeps league, it remained closely packed.

Redcoat continued to impress as his Fins (5-1) continue to lead the league. His 98-69 win over Tampa (3-3) was led by DeAngelo Williams 30 and AP's 17.

With 4 teams at 4-2, however, Redcoat took a huge step, giving up Peyton Manning for Adrian Peterson. He now has the #1, #3 and #9 RBs. Wow!!

The Skulls (2-4) took a 17 point lead over 4-12 (2-4) into Monday night and held on to win 84-78. MJD's 34 led the way for Skulls.

Alex's Zombies (4-2) overcame the Steers (1-5) by a score of 108-71. It was all about the QBs and it was unexpected. Brees' 31 came against a highly rated jints defense, while Hasselback had a horrid -5 against the bottom ranked Cardinal pass defense.

The Dunsmore family of Houston had a good weekend, with both the Jackalopes and Buffaloes winning.

The Jackalopes (4-2) took care of Nate (2-4), 98-46. Nate had 5 players with byes this week, then started 3 others who played and failed to score.

The Buffaloes (4-2) trampled the Shaft (2-4), 132-54. The Buffs got a huge contribution from Randy Moss, and unexpectedly large contributions from the Tampa defense and Owen Daniels.

My Futaleufu (4-2) team overcame Future (3-3) in a close contest. Brady had 39 for Future, but Thomas Jones countered with 32 for Futa. A 1 point game going into Monday night opened up a bit with the final score was 104-93.

I didnt write it, Professor, it was lifted verbatim from Boz's article (as I credited).

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/09/20/AR2009092002697.html

appears he is rated last in this TD category, of the active 900+ QBs.

Bottom line, he is a one-read backup QB on any other NFL team, except when he gets his "rhythm" which is usually in a prevent D when the Skins are behind by 2 scores.

Posted by: SkinsneedaGM | October 20, 2009 3:51 PM | Report abuse

No its TD's per attempt not "TD category".

If you want to lift anything as a quote, you need to use to help provide necessary context, or post the full context and post the entire previous paragraph.

So lets look at the full context of this stat.

"One of the critical ways to measure an NFL quarterback is his percentage of touchdown passes. In all eras, from Sammy Baugh (6.2 percent of his passes were touchdowns) to the present, the great passers know how to finish a drive. A typical touchdown percentage for a star is between 4.5 percent and 6 percent. Below 4 percent is poor. Zorn himself, as well as ex-Redskins coach Steve Spurrier, were only at 3.5 percent.

Out of all the 219 passers in NFL history who have thrown at least 900 passes, Campbell ranks in a five-way tie for 201st at 3.1 percent. Only 14 quarterbacks, all nonentities, rank lower. Is the flaw in Campbell? Or, as on Sunday, when both Devin Thomas and Mike Sellers missed possible touchdown catches from Campbell, is his paucity of scoring passes merely a reflection of an ill-built red-zone offense?"

Providing the full stat makes for interesting discussion and provides a quality post. But you know why you don't bother to try and make a better argument. Because your a hater, and you dont actually want to bother with context or anything, you're to busy busting a **** over someone slamming a guy you hate already.

Really? In 2000 the Giants hired someone mid-season who had been out of football for 5 years (and had been calling bingo) and handed over playcalling responsibilities to them?

Oh wait, no, that's not how it happened - they handed playcalling over to someone who had been on the staff all already all season long.

What's the difference, you may ask? How about (1) bingo, (2) familiarity with plays/playbook/personnel, (3) meals on wheels, and (4) WTF???!!!??

The offense has regressed though and shown no signs of life or improvement at all. It would be one thing if there was progress, but Zorn hasn't made a very good case for being a head coach or offensive coordinator in the NFL. The team can't even score 14 points a game!

I don't blame the front office at all for moving on. But, the way they've initiated it is an absolute joke. Jeopardizes the chances of getting a decent coach to take this job in the future.

The Redskins desperately need help at offensive tackle, so they picked up the biggest name available Tuesday.

The team announced that they signed Levi Jones, formerly of the Bengals.

Jones once had Pro Bowl-caliber talent and received a contract extension from Cincinnati with $16.3 million in 2006, but back injuries slowly wore him down. He worked out for the Lions and Packers recently, but both teams passed.

To clear roster room, the Redskins released two running backs: Anthony Alridge and Marcus Mason. They also signed running back Quinton Ganther, formerly of the Titans.

Jason Campbell is not the first starting quarterback to be ever benched and he won't be the last. He needs to do his job - staying positive isn't a cure all on a ship that is sinking. I'd rather he be energized, real, and direct that he will RISE UP and EXECUTE his job performance.

The problem with Jason Campbell is that he has been pampered and treated with kid gloves - his feelings have always been over compensated. We failed to toughen him up and now we are paying for it. We've got a wuss.

I'm not sure Zorn telling Campbell that he's the starter carries any weight. Zorn has as much clout at Redskins Park these days as the cleaning lady. If I were JC, I'd check w/ Vinny to see if it's true...

One and only problem with the Skins is the evil midget who destroyed our team.

You mean sawed-off midget.

We all know $nyder can't stand Campbell. We all know Zorn is gone Tuesday morning. We all know $nyder publicly castrated Zorn yesterday. Turnaround is fair play, in his last call as Skin's coach Zorn names Campbell his starting QB just to piss off $nyder. And this is what has become of a once proud and storied franchise!

Hey Danny boy, take note of what Phil Simms and Pat Kirwan say about drafting:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUZ-p1ahPRc

(Beginning at 4:40)

From the future Hall of Famer himself: "...offensive line is the safest way to go when it comes to picking high."

And from Pat Kirwan:
"In [2003-2006], 13 offensive linemen [were] drafted in the first round. [In 2006], they started 192 of 208 games: 92%...for a safe pick, go to the offensive line."

Have to agree with Bos. It amazes me that given the evidence, so many people still choose to believe that JC is something that he appears not to be - a good quarterback whose had a really, really unfortunate run of bad luck.

"Campbell prepares for whatever Monday brings"

Shouldn't be too difficult for JC to prepare for this one. It's not like anyone is expecting anything different from him:

Another loss. More excuses.
