  • If the Redskins draft QB, Campbell will demand a trade

    Jason Campbell will request to be traded should the Redskins acquire a quarterback in this weekend’s draft, according to a source familiar with the situation.


    The Redskins, who have the 13th overall pick in this weekend’s draft, reportedly have shown substantial interest in USC QB Mark Sanchez. However, Sanchez could be selected in the top five — long before the Redskins are scheduled to pick.

    The Redskins likely would have to trade up to take Sanchez. If they were to land Sanchez, it would mark the second time they have made an attempt to acquire a quarterback in the past few weeks. Washington reportedly made trade overtures toward Denver for Jay Cutler before he was dealt to Chicago.

    Campbell, a first-round pick by the Redskins in 2005, has said he wasn’t bothered by the team’s inquiry for Cutler. However, another attempt to secure Campbell’s replacement or successor wouldn’t go over well.

        A rough guess at how the Redskins future will go if they make the trade up for Sanchez...

        - The draft Sanchez and deal Campbell.

        - Sanchez struggles but shows signs of progression late in the season; however the Redskins don't have a winning record.

        - Danny boy fires Zorn and Sanchez is forced to learn another offense, thus more struggling.

        - Danny boy fires the new offensive coordinator and Sanchez is forced to learn yet another system.

        - Sanchez is on the trading block in 2011.

            harsh, but not unrealistic. (also: 7000!)

                He didn't look "great" the first 8 games. The only "great" statistic in those 8 games was his low number of interceptions which was a direct result of his fear of making the difficult throw. Through 8 games he had thrown 0 interceptions but he had also only thrown 7 touchdown passes. In the second half, once teams realized that he locks in on his receivers and isn't going to throw to his 2nd or 3rd option, his ints went up and his tds went down, finishing the year with a measly 13 tds and 6 ints. The Skins were 29th in the NFL for passing plays over 40 yards with only 3 and 28th in the league for passing plays over 20 yards.

                Blame the receivers all you want but in 2005, Brunnell through for 23 tds with 10 ints. The Skins were 5th in the NFL with plays over 40 yards and top 10 for plays over 20 yards and he had Moss, Patten, James Thrash, and Taylor Jacobs as his leading receivers...

                Bottom line: Campbell is not a franchise quarterback. He lacks any form of leadership, has no swagger, has a slow release, and locks on his receivers. He's a great guy and hes got a lot of athleticism and a strong arm but he just doesn't have the intangibles.

                  Snyder needs to hire a GM and stop picking the players!!

                  Unfortunately for SKins fans, Danny boy is a young owner, mid-40s, and it may be an entire decade before he realizes he has no philosophy for building a winning team and approaches the draft like fantasy football and needs to bring in professionals and let them do their job.

                  If they draft Sanchez, ( hope they don't), watch Colt end up the starter at the end of preseason, which will literally make Snyder's head explode.

                  To me, Campbell was ruined by playing under Joe Gibbs who emphasized the worst thing he could do is turn the ball over. Consequently, he became extremely tentative in driving the ball downfield unless a WR was running free by 5 yards.
                  JC is just too risk averse in the passing game, which is a losing strategy for a big, strong armed QB.

                  The whole point is to make calculated risks, which isn't the same as being a Brett Favre type gunslinger under center.

                  It will become painfully obvious when Campbell is gone that the problems the Skins had scoring weren't entirely the blame of the Oline and WRs.

                      Maybe Colt Brennan will finally get to show he's the real thing.

                        If we draft Sanchez i think we might promote Colt to Head Coach

                            This is the funniest thing. Demand something that would happen anyway the minute they get Sanchez.

                            When they were trying to get Cutler, rumor was the Redskins already came to terms with another team on a trade for Jason Campbell (supposedly at least a 2nd round pick).
                            Pugnacity, testosterone, truculence, and belligerence.

                              Campbell is an able QB, game manager, and athlete. Not so high on leadership, and this guy won't take the Skins to a Super Bowl. With Eli Manning (Giants), Tony Romo (Cowboys), and Donovan McNabb (Eagles), each team in the division has proven winners (although Romo will have to show that he can win a playoff game).

                              Campbell is an average QB, a solid starter IMO, but not a guy who can carry them to the playoffs. In any case, I definitely agree with MooShoo. I don't think ANY QB will be able to lead Washington when the schemes change every year.

                              Thanks BoneKrusher! The Sig King!
