I am sticking with my Jason Campbell will be a top ten qb if he "only had this" theme of course. If I said anything else what would you guys think of me? I am going to discuss why we have so much trouble winning games and making 4th quarter comebacks. The real difference between the redskins and the other teams in the NFC besides our sorry Offensive line is "GAME CHANGERS". We do not have any game changers IE Desean Jackson, Felix Jones, Miles Austin, Jeremy Maclin, Tashard Choice, Adrian Peterson, Percy Harvin, Piere Thomas, Reggie Bush, Devery Henderson, Michael Turner, Deanagelo Williams, Johnathan Stewart, Steve Smith etc etc. maybe some of you have not noticed this but the overwhelming majority of good teams have at least one game changer.
Ok , before some of you start saying that we have game changers. Please look at who is on my list and who I have left off. A Game Changer is someone that can score from anywhere on the field at any moment. This is a running back that can take a hand off or a screen pass and run 40 yards or more without getting ran down. This is a receiver that can catch a short pass and make people miss or break tackles and out run everyone to the endzone.
Maybe I am wrong and we do have some fast guys that can take the ball to the endzone at any time from anywhere on the field. If anybody can point that player out to me let me know. ( Devin Thomas is the closest thing we have to one)
My point in all of this is without addressing our need for offensive lineman as well as game changers it does not matter if we draft a first round QB. We will still have receivers getting ran down from behind by linebackers like Moss did last week. We will also continue to see our running backs hit a hole and think "if he was only a little faster it might have been a TD."
What should be our main priority in the draft ?
