View Full Version : The coaching staff did not prepare Campbell for the 2 minute offense
December-3rd-2006, 11:09 PM
I was just watching WUSA 9 and Brett made a comment about Jason not knowing how to run the 2 minute offense. I have now seen and heard it all about the 06 Redskins. What in the world is going on at Redskins park. This is just embarrassing.

The management of this team this entire year has been a huge debacle. If even a fraction of what was in the Tom Friend article is true, then the defensive coaching alone has some serious organizational issues. The fact that the secondary isn't even on the same page at this point in the season is embarassing, to say the least. Then we have too much input on offense, and clearly different personalities are taking charge of different games, as we have failed to establish an offensive identity even now. We're pretty much committed to the run now, but almost to the point of suicide - I'm not convinced that is "redskins football." If the coaching staff was transparent to the public, we'd probably be in an uproar about how badly they botched the job. From two 2nd rounders for Rocky (a guy that won't even play this season - why was there urgency to give 2 picks for that??), to the person that signed off on Archuletta... the list goes on... The ineptitude starts at the top of the coaching ladder. If Gibbs isn't making the bad decisions, he's allowing the wrong poeple to make the decisions, which is equally bad.

Makes almost as much sense as Campbell taking almost no snaps with the first team for most of the season.

Although this is tough to stomach, its part of why its better to have JC out there taking his lumps now than struggling with these issues in 2007.
As much as most of us did not want to believe it (myself included) this season was over long before today. This was just the last nail in the coffin of our '06 season. Since the season has looked like a washout for a while now, its good that we have him in there learning in what is, in all reality, an extension of the 2007 preseason.
Point is, they may or may not have coached him up as much as they should have to get him ready to handle the 2min drill, but a good deal of that comes with experience. A QB has to take control in that situation, better that JC learns how to do that now, through experience, when the games are all but meaningless, then using our entire NEXT year as his schooling session.
Coaching issues aside, I think we should see some improvement in Campbell in this area as the year goes on...lets hope anyway! :)
