The Jason Campbell Era

"The Jason Campbell Era"

All signs point to the idea that Donovan McNabb is a better quarterback than Jason Campbell, traded today to the Oakland Raiders for a 2012 4th round draft pick, but pursuing an upgrade at this position strikes me as a weird choice for the Redskins:

Campbell never fulfilled the high expectations of owner Daniel Snyder. The Redskins twice changed offensive philosophies during Campbell’s three-plus seasons as a starter, and failed to address the offensive line – their weakest unit since the middle of the 2008 season.

As implied there, I just don’t know what opportunity Campbell is supposed to have had to fulfill any kind of expectations. I watched most of the Redskins’ games last year and my overwhelming feeling about the offense was that you could have put Payton Manning back there to get sacked and it wouldn’t have made any kind of difference.
