Jason Campbell Done in Washington?

Brad SmithContributor IFebruary 26, 2009

Jason Campbell has been through many challenges as a member of the Washington Redskins. But after a disappointing 2-6 finish this year, is it time for the Redskins to move on at the quarterback position?

The Redskins have a history of waiting for young quarterbacks to develop, though those young quarterbacks rarely have rewarded their patience. Heath Shuler, Gus Frerotte, and Patrick Ramsey are all examples of Washington QBs with a bright future that just never panned out.

Since Joe Gibbs' first stint as the Redskins head coach, the team has repeatedly failed to find adequate leadership at the most important position. An despite Jim Zorn taking over prior to the season, 2008 was no exception.

The stats say this past campaign was Campbell's best, but that means just 13 TD and an 84.3 passer rating.  

With a wide selection of free agents and trade options available this offseason, is this the right time to go in a different direction? Is Colt Brennan ready to step up? He certainly showed promise in preseason last fall, making him look like a steal in the sixth round.

If Daniel Snyder wants to build a franchise, he should start today. It's time to begin the Colt Brennan Era in Washington, bring in the additional pieces necessary, and make the Redskins relevant again!
