What a 24 to 36 hours its had been for Jason Campbell and the redskins. The team were obviously prepare to give away their two first round picks and Campbell for the cutler, but the broncos believe that Kyle orton is a better quarterback then Campbell. Now, with this over, Campbell is ready to move on according to Jason La Canfora of the Post.
"Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell said he plans to move forward and "to do everything I can do to help us get to where we want to be as a team" after the team failed to acquire quarterback Jay Cutler from the Denver Broncos and trade Campbell.
The Broncos traded Cutler today to Chicago for a package that includes Kyle Orton, two first-round draft picks and the swap of third- and fifth-round picks. Campbell acknowledged that he was disappointed in having his name involved in the trade speculation, "but you can't let that get to you. You really just have to understand what it is. That's the business side of it and you have to go do your job still."
Campbell said he spoke with Coach Jim Zorn after completing his workout today at Redskins Park and said that Zorn was very supportive and encouraging, telling him that they are in this together and that Campbell is his quarterback.
"That meant a lot to me," Campbell said, "to know that he's behind me and he's been behind me all along. You need to have that trust with your head coach because he's the one I'm going to be dealing with most of the time. I know that the coaches and my teammates are behind me. I trust them. That means a lot to me."
He may not have to same stats as Cutler did, but he is a class act unlike Cutler. To me, I rather have a QB who is willing to work hard and help the team succeed then a QB whining all the time. Honestly, this could be the best move the skins have right now. Campbell has a chip on his shoulder, and if we can get a couple of good Offensive lineman in the draft, and improve our O-Line in general, this could be a breakout year for him.
