Meanwhile, Jason Campbell leads the Raiders to a sweep of the Chargers for first time in 9 years.

Meanwhile, Jason Campbell leads the Raiders to a sweep of the Chargers for first time in 9 years, snapping the Chargers streak of 18 straight December victories and leading the Raiders to the first meaningful December games since 2001.

 

No, im not claiming that if the Redskins had Jason for this game they would magically know how to tackle, stop the run, or have an offense that resembled the greatest show on turf or anything close to it. But the bottom line is Shanahan decision on trading Jason should be added to the long list of questionable moves. First how could he not be an immediate upgrade as a backup compared Rex Grossman? Had Jason still been here, I have a feeling we'd have a full fledged QB controversy at this point. At 5-7 see what Jason could do in this offense at the age 28. Sure McNabb can run away from a few sacks and look a little flashy, but the facts show Jason Campbell was a more efficient QB for this team.

Lets compare some digits..

28 yrs JasonTD/INT 15-12  Fumbles Lost 3 Sacked 30 times Record 3-9 Rush TD's 1 Total TD = 16 Total Turnover = 15

34  yrs McNabb TD/INT 12-15 Fumbles Lost 1 Sacked 35 times Record 5-7 Rush TD's 0 Total TD = 12 Total Turnover = 16

Yes it is a slight difference, but Jason Campbell is more efficient, if scoring more and turning the ball over less doesn't help give you a better chance at success, i don't know what does. Now I know your going to point out the Records but honestly its splitting hairs, the Redskins could easily have the same record this year, the Defense Stepped up and won us 2 games, a holding penalty, Etc. This is the small picture anyways, Age should be a big deal here. Jason's in his prime Mcnabb on the Tail end.  Mcnabb has not produced on a arguably more talented team and arguably(sorry I have to say arguably) better coached team. 

This all leads to my final point, you may completely disagree with my prior statements but I think most of realize the Redskins could have Michael Vick, Tom Brady, or any other QB and look just as bad. Brunell, Campbell, McNabb, it doesn't matter. It's the teams culture, owner, and win now mentality thats all to blame. If they have Campbell now they have almost a full draft, a Young QB with experience, and a reason to look forward to next season. Instead they've added more holes, have less Draft picks and more questions than answers.
