2 Minutes on the Jason Campbell Trade

During the 2010 NFL Draft, the Redskins sent obsolete QB Jason Campbell to the hapless Oakland Raiders for a 2012 4th Round Draft Pick (if the world doesn't explode like the Mayans predicted).

2 Minutes by No,MoneyDown: Poor Jason Campbell. Poor, poor, POOR Jason Campbell. Consider these wrinkles in the poorness of Jason Campbell...

-He's going to the only, repeat: ONLY organization in the league that is a step down from the Redskins. Don't buy the idea that anywhere is better than here for JC, because this will not be a happy ending.

-We traded for his mentor to replace him, nice.

-He's been begging us (presumably) for years to draft some Offesnive Linemen to protect him, and we finally did! Except he's not on the team anymore, we're protecting someone else. Poor, poor Jason Campbell. His career never had a chance.

People were so disappointed with Jason Campbell's play because he was a "first round" QB; but what if Old Man Gibbs just drafted him too high? What if he's really just a second or third round talent. Put in that perspective, didn't he actually do pretty well for himself? I mean, it was apparent last season that the front office wasn't trying to help him out at all. I mean, MIKE WILLIAMS as the only "upgrade" on the line? Get the fuck outta here. He'll be fine in Oakland, and I think they'll just be happy he's not Jamarcus Russell.
