Jason Campbell

So it's rumored that Carolina is pursuing Jason Campbell out of Washington for a mid round pick. I've seen this guy plat some atrocious games against the Panthers in the past. Do we really want him?

I know the draft is thin for QBs, but we just got rid of one #17 that throws a ton of picks. do we want another one?

Re: Jason Campbell

stupid. stupid. stupid... why waste a draft pick on garbage? Hurney and Fox are great drafters and generally always get good talent in mid to late rounds!! we dont need experienced QBs who are experienced in losing.

Re: Jason Campbell

I wouldn't be against going after him, especially cus his price tag would be low.  I've read in places that he'd only take a 4th or 5th rounder to get and that's probably where we'd take a qb, so why not go with a relatively young known than risk it with an unknown?

If you look at Campbell's stats, its not like he's no good, his numbers have steadily increased and he's done this with a mediocre running game and supporting cast.  Not trying to make him out to be the next big thing, but I think putting him in a scenario where its not on his shoulders and he's got an overall better team around him would do him wonders.

I would only bring him in at first as the backup to Moore, but maybe Moore doesn't pan out like we'd like and we already would have another guy waiting in the wings.  This sounds like the Carr situation, but Carr was beyond broken by the time he got here, he had no hope.

Bottomline, if we got him, I wouldn't be sad and we'd have two fine, young QB's and if we didn't get him, oh well, we still have Moore and we could draft somebody.

Re: Jason Campbell

Marc Bulger's now without a team if we're really doing the "We need a veteran backup" thing. When the guy was healthy he was pretty darn good. He never had much of an O-line after his two Pro-Bowl seasons, so why not bring him in on the dirt cheap if we're all afraid of Campbell?

Re: Jason Campbell

W-S has a real good point. Why not go after a veteran who knows how to lead? Yeaaa sure Campbell wasn't AWFUL but he would bring nothing to the team like a good veteran would.

Re: Jason Campbell

I say go for it at the right price.. 5th rounder do it..

He can be a very good back up if Moore is truly the future at QB. I dont want the Panthers to waste their time on an injury prone, vet like Bulger.  If they sign Bulger and Moore end up flopping what does the future of this franchise look like.

Campbell put up good numbers on a horrible Skins team.  I think he is at least as good as Delhomme was a few years back, and look what Delhomme did here.  If Delhomme was in Washington, even in 2003-2005, he wouldnt have lasted a season.  Campbell was able to show a lot in such a restrictive environment. 

Worst case scenario he is a very good back up QB to Moore who we all hope makes the most of his opportunity.  Best case scenario he realizes all the potential he has.  And if Moore flops at least we have a serviceable QB until another QB is found.
