Carr didn't improve each year he was in the league. He actually declined a little bit his final 2 years at houston. Meanwhile Campbell has improved in alot of areas since being in the league. Completion percentage, Touchdowns, Yards, QB rating. I want to keep repeating this because alot of the same people are still comparing the two when there is no comparison. And also Campbell >>> McCown. McCown only wishes he had a career with Campbell's numbers. Yeah McCown was with some sucky teams, but Campbell was with a sucky Redskins team his whole career and a terrible o-line.
Why do people want a veteran backup QB that can't play or help if Moore goes down (McCown)? Didn't we just get rid of one QB like that? And acquiring Campbell has nothing to do with lack of confidence in Moore. We're just trying to improve our team in case Moore goes down or (which is very unlikely) he blows up in our faces. If Moore's confidence is so fragile that it'll hurt him if we brought in Campbell, then he really doesn't deserve to be a QB in this league. He should see we're only making moves to help our team and that he's our guy. Competition brings out the best in people and Moore is a competitor. If anything, the competition will make him better!
And as far as the comment about we wouldn't keep Campbell on the bench if we traded for him...If we traded a 4th for him, that'll be like us drafting a young QB thats going to be sitting on the bench anyway. Why not get someone thats better than any other QB in the draft right now and is ready to play if the starter should go down? Besides we may still draft another one later in the draft for the 3rd spot depending how many picks we get if we move around.
Hate to tell you, but you and Gantt are in agreement on this one.
Mentioned previously in this thread that last season was the second worst in both TD/Int ratio and Ints per attempt; also tied with worst for number of fumbles (13, that's almost one per game
). He's certainly not improving in all
his stats, and turnover were what got Jake Delhomme his ticket out of here.
What they want for Moore (besides a steady, reliable backup) is a guy who can act as a mentor. Something of an "assistant quarterback coach".
Do you really think Jason Campbell can play that role?
Plus, as said above, if there really are five teams wanting him, I don't see him going for just a 4th or 5th.
