Per the Insider reguarding the current CBA and how it effects our beloved franchise QB.
Jason Campbell - the perennial QB of the future - has two years remaining on his rookie contract and the Redskins have yet to open any sort of contract talks with him, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. Campbell is also one of the persons most profoundly impacted by the possibility of an uncapped 2010 season. Campbell remains something of an unknown commodity, largely through issues out of his control - constantly-changing systems, a ridiculously conservative game plan much of last season, injuries to key weapons, injury to himself - but this will be a situation to monitor closely.
Off the field, I don't believe Campbell has had a fair shake of things. Playing the hardest postion in the NFL and in my mind in any league, how can you expect his growth as a QB not to be stunted with all the changes at offensive coordinator? I agree with the Insider who also said a ridiculously conservative game plan much of last season. I grew very tired of our game plan on offence, run,run,pass, punt. It was all together bland and prevented us from putting teams away which also lead to way to many games that had to be decided in the last 2:00.
On the field the biggest problems I saw were the inability for Campbell to hold on to the ball after being sacked, and lead a game wining drive. I preach patience especially when it comes to young QB's. Although Campbell has been with the team since '05, lets remember he's only started 20 games! More complicated math using my fingers tells me that's only one full season plus 4 games. Anyone panicking needs to get off their Jump To Conclusions Board and relax. His TD to INT ratio was 12 to 11 last season which is nothing to get yo "OH Face" on about. Compairing his stats to last years: his completion percentage rose by 7.1% and his INT percentage of 2.6% was 8th best in the NFL which is rare for young QB's.
Anyone suggesting Todd Collins be handed the controls also needs to relax. What he did last year was great, but I don't think anyone of us wants him going into a pasing duel with Romo/Manning/McNabb. I think he'll make a fine QB and with the playcalling about to be wide open, dare I say a Pro Bowl invite? I dare to think so.
