While reading the Wizards blog, I came across a blurb about how Gilbert Arenas used to be a "closer." No, this isn't Bullets Forever. I'm just bringing it up because that's what helped me come to the amazing revelation. For all of you out there who think that the Skins should stay away from the high profile free agent market this year - I'm right there with you. I am tired of spending big money on other people's players , whether they pan out or not, instead of developing our own players. But, there is ONE player I think Snyder should throw the bank at. Hell, I'm not even sure how the salary cap would work in this instance. It may not even be an issue, considering that player is
Yep, that's right. Now, I KNOW LETJASONPASSGAS will be vehemently opposed to me here. But that's OK. He's used to being disappointed. Anyway, think about it. Jason Campbell is just as good as
any most QB's in the league until the final drive. Now, whether it's been bad luck, bad play by his receivers, good plays by a defender, or bad decisions/throws by Campbell, the bottom line is he's come up short on many-a game winning drive in his career. And, because of it, he has been labeled a bust.
Well, that can all change. Yep, we just need a closer. Unheard of, you cry? Never been done, you say? Well, I say SO WHAT. This is a league, hell THIS IS A TEAM, that's carried two kickers - one for short FG's, one for long ones. The 46 defense had never been done. Same with the Wildcat (well, kind of). Hell, the FORWARD PASS was thought very little of until Slingin Sammy hit the scene. So, why not just continue the tradition of bucking tradition? Let's Let-Jason-Pass for 3 and a half quarters, then bring in a closer for the final few minutes I predict Campbell will be a Pro Bowler (starter even, so he's not in in the 4th), the Skins will be SuperBowl contenders, and Hogs Haven will be NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED as not only a source for the latest Skins info, but a place these old crusty NFLers can go to for fresh ideas. Hell, even LETJASONPASSGAS will even be happy, realizing that the guy whose FATHEAD is stuck to his ceiling is a starter for a contender, AND in the Pro Bowl.
You're welcome fellas. The praise is appreciated, but donations even moreso.
