Sonny Jurgensen, Joe Theismann, and Jason Campbell Have Lost Their Appeal

Anthony Brown@SkinsHogHeavenCorrespondent IOctober 31, 2009

It must have seemed like a great promotional idea last August when ESPN 980 Radio dreamed it up: gather Washington Redskin quarterbacks Sonny Jurgensen, Joe Theismann, and Jason Campbell on stage for a fan event during the bye week, this Tuesday at a Ballston, Virginia, restaurant.

Awkward is the only way to describe A Night Of Quarterbacks now.

What are these guys going to say to a fan base in revolt?

The Redskins sunk their season with a 2-5 start and a 24th place ranking in total offense.

Campbell is the: 14th ranked quarterback in yards; 17th ranked for touchdowns, and 18th ranked for QB rating.

Jurgensen has already called for Campbell to be benched. Theismann has criticized the team's play and called the hiring of offensive playcaller Sherm Lewis "absolutely the worst thing this organization [the Redskins] could do."

Jurgensen was elected to the Football Hall Of Fame in 1983. Theismann led the Redskins to its first Super Bowl win. Campbell, it seems, will do neither.

ESPN 980 is owned by Daniel Snyder's Red Zebra Broadcasting. Typical of a Snyder event, A Night Of Quarterbacks costs $106.00, or about the same as a lower level game seat at FedEx Field.  

Red Zebra could fill FedEx Field at that price for A Night Of Daniel Snyder. Fans would pay to vent their feelings direct to the man.

I'd go.
