Business Confidential:
SNYDER SECRETLY STOCKPILING THIRD STRING QBS

Part 1

ASHBURN, VA – It’s an economics lesson as old as Adam Smith and his classic teachings about the laws of supply and demand. Essentially, if you have a good supply of an in-demand item, you can usually sell it for a profit.

But the real barons of business and industry are seldom content with just turning a profit. They’ll explain, why just compete for a profit when you can “corner” a market by singlehandedly controlling a substantial share of a limited supply and high-demand item and commodity that – if properly tendered and traded – could allow you to make a real killing in the marketplace?

Redskin Outsider has learned that the Redskins scouting and coaching staffs have been spending most of the off-season traveling around the country in search of third string quarterbacks. According to our sources, team owner Dan Snyder put out the edict that he wants the Washington Redskins to be known from here forward and forevermore as the “supplier of choice” for third string quarterbacks.

According to business analysts, Snyder’s choice of this unique market niche is really as odd as it might initially appear to be for some outsiders. Frankly, the team has already been dealing in third string quarterbacks for years.

For example, the knock on current “starting” quarterback Jason Campbell is that he is a strong-armed but inaccurate passer who tries to do as well as he can with his limited skill set, but has yet to display the necessary finesse to handle some of the finer points of a modern NFL passing scheme. For example, Campbell appears to have great difficulty in consistently throwing an accurate fade pattern to a receiver running to the outer edge of the end zone -- admittedly one of the most difficult throws in the game -- or consistently completing timing patterns to pass receivers cutting to the sidelines.

SNYDER SECRETLY STOCKPILING THIRD STRING QBS

Part 2

Campbell’s defenders will tell you that is as accurate and effective as any other quarterback in the game, and readily quote statistics that seem to show him to be a middle-of-the pack and improving player. Unfortunately, they neglect to mention that this quarterback seems to rely more than most on a unusually high number of screen passes and other short-yardage “dink and dump” passes to outlet receivers.

All in all, Campbell seems to embody the best attributes of a modern third string quarterback in that he is somewhat competent, relatively quiet (to the point being almost a non-entity when it comes field leadership), respected by many (but not all) of his teammates, and modestly priced. (Despite having played five years in the league and starting for three, he is still working on a rookie contract that will pays him a modest $4 million this year.)

Then the key question becomes, can the Redskins – or for that matter, any other team -- win with Campbell?

Probably not.

After enduring an ever-changing series of coaches and offensive schemes over the past several years, even Campbell admits that he must “unlearn” many of the “bad lessons” he picked up from earlier coaches before he can successfully move on with a new coach or offensive system.

But still, many Redskin Outsiders will tell you that if you surround Campbell with 10 Pro Bowl caliber players, and give him a very simple offensive scheme, as well as lots of coaching and patience, well then he may not embarrass himself or the rest of the team too badly.

Business Confidential:
SNYDER SECRETLY STOCKPILING THIRD STRING QBS

Part 3

The challenge, of course, is finding another team that might have a demand for a quarterback such as Campbell. And thus far, there appear to be few, if any takers.

Much of the same goes with new Redskin quarterback Rex Grossman. After falling last season into third place on the quarterback depth chart with the Houston Texans, the quarterback formerly known as “Sexy Rexy” was released by the Texans and brought into Washington by new offensive coordinator Kurt Shanahan. The story goes that Grossman will help install and teach Shanahan’s offensive scheme to the Washington quarterbacking corps, and maybe even compete with Campbell for the “starting” quarterback role.

However, team insiders just give you a glazed stare when you remind that that Grossman was signed to a one-year contract and for league near-minimum rates – which can only lead this writer to conclude that he is probably little more than another modestly competent and modestly priced third string quarterback who should be available soon for trading to other teams.

Snyder seems to appreciate the value of trades and “other considerations,” and particularly the latter. During this year’s pre-Superbowl parties hosted by the eventual league champion New Orleans Saints, Snyder got to party with all sorts of celebrities and groupies, including Saints runner Reggie Rush and his (then) girlfriend Kim Kardashian, and Hollywood comedy actress Cameron Diaz.

Few seemed to draw the correlation that the both backup quarterbacks on the Saints roster – Mark Brunell and Chase Daniel -- spent substantial parts of their earlier seasons with the Redskins. But league insiders know and appreciated the fact that Washington appears to be pretty effective at turning out backup quarterbacks for other teams.

SNYDER SECRETLY STOCKPILING THIRD STRING QBS

Part 4

As one of the first NFL team owners to recognize the economic potential of this unique market niche, Snyder has enlisted the support of a not-so-unlikely ally. In new head coach Mike Shanahan, Snyder is said to believe that he now has a coach who can take the owner’s business model for developing third-string quarterbacks and mass produce it into a much more lucrative enterprise.

Shanahan is widely regarded as just the sort of coach who can turn middle of the road quarterback prospects into professional football players -- and Snyder is quickly becoming known as the supplier of choice for the best backups.

As this year’s college draft approaches, the Redskin scouting and coaching staffs have been out on the road working out and interviewing all of the top college quarterback prospects -- including highly hyped Oklahoma University quarterback Sam Bradford, Notre Dame's besainted Jimmy Clausen, and Florida televangelist Tim Tebow.

While few real analysts expect any of these quarterbacks to start a regular season game in the 2010 because it typically takes a new quarterback fresh from college a season or two to get ready to play in the big leagues.

But that little fact only makes Snyder want them more.

And now you, dear reader, know why.

Can someone explain this to me?


Why all the fear around drafting a QB at #4? What if you draft a QB at #4 and get a LT/RT at #37?

I am totally AGAINST this "don't draft a QB that high argument.

Every QB takes his lumps...good or bad O-line.

Our team has stunk the last 10 years...has it been all the fault of the QB position...NO, but do we have a guy that will make plays when it counts?...hasn't so far.

Don't gimme that Mark Rypien, Doug Williams, "we can win with an average QB" argument. That was an exceptional offensive line.

YES, the O-line is important, but what's moer important is can the QB make plays. Aaron Rodgers spent the entire season on his back, but he made enough plays to get his team to the 2nd round of the playoffs. We don't have that QB on our roster.

Is it impossible to find a quality LT/RT in the 2nd round?

Is Russell Okung the savior of this franchise?

WHY DO WE HAVE TO SETTLE FOR AN AVERAGE QB, THAT NEEDS MAX PROTECTION?

Only real games on this schedule - Ravens and Jets. Both games, Grossman and Clownble will struggle. Each for different reasons.

Grossman for his lack of familiarity with the personnel vs two very good defensive units.

Clownble for his lack of familiarity with the offensive schemes vs. two very good offensive units.

A wash in the QB competition in my book.

However, it may come down to the game vs. CArdinals to decide who the QB will be. Not a very good defense and whoever gets the start will have the opportunity to show who is better against a marginally good starting defense.
