Whatever, Campbell is the man. Anyone with any football savvy knows this. Skins fans that want someone else under center are obviously retarded.

Ive been a fan of the Washington Redskins 4 a long time. Im only 22 years old an I say every since I was about 4 or 5 Yrs old I love the Skins.Im talking about the days when it was great 2 Be a Skins fan.The days of all them Great Players like Art Monk, Ricky Saanders, Gary Clark, Darrel Green, Ernest Byner Mark Rypien,Doug Willliams, the Hogs and the Great the Joe Gibbs. Even know I wasn't born when John Riggns was in his hay day. I know my history he was great back. We cant give up on Jason Campbell we can't.I got A feeling He's the 1. 2 lead us back 2 Super bowl an win it. That's my opinion an I think Im qualifed 2 voice it.

Campbell better play great this year. For him to say he was not the problem last year is bull. We all saw all the wide open plays he missed. Do or die Campbell!

While Campbell's assesment may be right, he holds the wheel that steers the ship thus making him the captain of this vessel. Should the ship go down, the captain is fully responsible in the eyes of on-looker's (fans). The team/management know it takes a "team" effort win or lose and really no one has lost sight of that. Jason should now understand in his 4th NFL season that the Skins go as he goes and if he doesn't perform at the Pro bowl calibur we all expect, then there is another young guy in the wings waiting his turn named Colt, not Todd. Step up and be the captain of this team Jason. Don't let excuses stand in your way of being the leader that steers the ship to the Superbowl.

i think jc is the man. collins did well last year but i doubt he will look that good in a new system. they both have the same learning curve so it could get interesting. im riding with jc. i can live with the mistakes he young. i mean come on now its not like this guy collins can really take us to the super bowl.

Jason Campbell has the potential to be great. He has the arm strength and toughness as well as the mental ability to lead the Redskins to great things. For Redskin fans to say put in Todd Collins that is ridiculous. One major thing that lead to Todd Collins success is his being under Al Saunders for such an extended period of time. No one can say that Todd Collins is a physically gifted as Jason Campbell, nor can they say that he is a long term solution because of his age. Campbell will come in to his own and has a great quarterbacks coach to allow him to accomplish this. Give the guy a break and remember that many times last season he played great and stop this garbage about Todd Collins.

Everyone knows that Saunders' playbook was too much for ANYONE to handle, unless they'd been playing in that system for an elongated period of time, i.e. Todd Collins. Campbell IS the future of this organization.

As a lifelong Redskins fan, I've NEVER legitimately been this excited about an upcoming season. Campbell, at Auburn, showed that he can effectively run a West Coast offense, and has shown that same productivity in the first two preseason games.

Barring any more injuries, I'd say we're in for some real fireworks in the Capital City.
