We're Back To Normal (Allegedly)
First, another brief disclaimer: At the risk of incurring the wrath of those unable to post comments, and with all best hopes regarding the future maintenance of this blog, I am going to try to proceed as normal today. Again, I have no idea if the technical problems will persist and I have no ability to fix them if they do. As it was explained to me, this program we use to post text into - moveable type, I believe it's called - has some snafus on their end that are plaguing us too.
Figured I'd address a few ideas floating around here early today.
I have no problems with the suggestion that the grim reaper go back to No. 36, but I'm not sure I'm the guy for the job. Open to any and all suggestions on how to couch that to Sean. Would take a certain panache to execute that exchange properly. On the positive side, T.J. Duckett has been a such a good sport about getting his career hijacked as a weekly scratch that I can't see him putting up too much of a protest should TGR actually try to get his old number back.
I saw where someone wanted to know what Campbell is up to on game days. He is still in uniform as the emergency QB, but is technically inactive. He is on the sidelines during games and on the periphery of most gatherings of the coaches and quarterbacks during timeouts, etc. In essence it's the same gig for Jason on game days this year as it was last year.
As for the starting QB, I think that might have been his best game as a Skins all around given the import of the game, the quality of the opponent and the tenor of the game. There was no garbage time. Every pass really matters. And this wasn't a game where Brunell was just asked to manage things; yeah, the run carried the day but he chucked it 30 times and made crucial plays down the stretch. The quarterback who refuses to go away posted his best passer rating in an outing of at least 30 attempts since Sept. 20, 1998, when he crushed the Ravens with a 25-for-34 day, with 376 yards, two passing TDs and a 129 rating.
In the words of Adam Sandler, that's not too shabby.
