I am encouraged by what I saw today. Its just a shame our running game was no where to be found. All in all I am happy with what I saw from Campbelll.

I'm glad not seeing so many passes into the stands. Campbell looked pretty good to me, but it was against a bad team. If we could've had ANY running game, I really think we would've won this. Why is our Oline so bad? Not to mention our D. I hope Rogers is just having a sophomore slump. He didn't look this bad at any time last year.

My review? Let's just say I feel pretty vindicated for having called for him to start right out of camp. :D
A 92 passer rating right out of the box; makes those 9 games wasted under Mediocre Mark especially bitter!

I liked his composure most of all. Did not seem like he was playing in his first ever game.

lol, I can't believe it took until the 2nd page for someone to call me on saying this game was a "win".

Clearly I made a mistake, but still... back to Campbell...

I can't help but buy into the hype, even though the Bucs gave him a pretty good situation to succede in... I am pretty confident they concentrated more on the run.

Still, I hope Campbell starts every Redskins game for the next 15 years. :)

are you serious? that is really dumb

I don't think there are many audibles (there are some, I'm pretty sure) but the QB's and WR's are supposed to make adjustments on the fly when the defense shifts in a certain way or shows a particular blitz.

It was good to see Campbell out there and starting to get some experience. In my opinion, he looked great--probably as good as we could have expected from him. I love his poise out on the field. He never looks rushed, confused, or frustrated. He protected the ball pretty well, was mobile when he needed to be, and wasn't afraid to try the tougher throws.

So far, it's all looking good. :)

I thought he did pretty well. It's unfortunate we couldn't get the win for him.

If Gibbs in any way make Brunell a starter again, I will truly want a refund on my season tickets. I will BOO him the whole game. Brunell can get on the bus with Archuletta, Carter, Marshall, Holdman, and Williams!!

I was very impressed with Campbell today. The young man showed A LOT of poise that some veterans don't even have. It was so comforting to see a quarterback in a Redskin unifrom not running around like a chicken with his head cut off on every play.

I am optimisitc that he will do well in the future and show us what a TRUE quarterback is like.

He had good vision and good scrambling ability. He definitely knows how to throw the ball downfield and has good accuracy as well.

I'm glad to have him on the team.

JC had a very good game considering that this was his first NFL outing. I liked him a lot too. I am convinced that the guy is a keeper as a starter for next season. He is our future without calling him a franchise QB ... yet. :wink:

Unfortunately, his play did not shine as much as it should have if we had had a running game. The lanes are not being opened by the line or they are out of sync with the RB. I did not like Betts considering that this is as good a game that we will get from him. He is good, definitely not great.

I would have wanted more of a power running game with Duckett and Sellers. I hope Joe goes that way in the future. I suspect he might based on a few key words during his post game interview.

I am happy for the transition but sad because we had confirmation today about what we had suspected for a while now: our season is over as far as going to the dance is concerned.

The only good news are that Philthy's season is over too. Unfortunately, this is due to an injury to Macnabb. If you thought we have problems and we have looked pretty dismal recently, you should have watched the pathetic Eagles today. They do have very serious problems and no Jason Campbell to rescue them in the future. They played the worst game I have seen the Eagles play for quite a LONG time. But I digress ...

What I noticed the most about JC? He has a gun. If you didn't get to see the game today you'll be shocked when you see him. I really like his composure -- he didn't seem to get rattled or nervous. PLUS, he is one big strong guy who doesn't go down easily.

I know it was just one game, and we didn't win but I will say -- QB is NOT one of our problems!

I like that he looked for and took his shots downfield, it puts a whole new spin on the offense.

A hint at a running game and a Defense that can get off the field and we should be fine.

The thing that stuck out to me was how composed he was. Unlike Brunell, he didn't panic when there was pressure. He stepped up in the pocket and made his throws. Along those same lines, I was impressed with how he went through his progressions and surveyed the entire field before making a throw.
