The dust settles on the  tumultuous Washington Redskins' offseason. Quarterback Jason Campbell was the main target of owner Daniel Snyder’s effort to boost the offense.

Snyder’s efforts excited the fan faction who doubt Campbell, but most were incensed at Snyder’s cheat at quarterback rather than fix of the offensive line or wide receiver.

How did the effort affect Campbell? What is he thinking?

Here are 10 questions I’d like to ask Mr. Campbell:

You are going into your second season as a starter in the same offense and with the same coach. How will that advantage affect your play this year?

Your critics say you have a slow throwing motion and are slow to make decisions on the field. How do you answer them?

What are your personal goals for the 2009 season? What benchmarks must you hit to win a contract extension in Washington?

How does your working relationship with head coach/offensive coordinator Jim Zorn compare to former offensive coordinator Al Saunders?

Please explain the difference in the quarterback’s role in the West Coast Offense and the Down Field Offense.

What differences have you seen in Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly this year compared to their rookie year? How have they grown as receivers?

Devin Thomas wrote that his personal improvement plan included building a closer personal relationship with you. How is he doing and how will that affect his production in 2009?

What is your relationship with Malcolm Kelly? Is he making a similar effort?

The East is a Beast. Which NFC East defense is the toughest challenge for the Redskin offense and why?

Will you participate in Chris Cooley’s fantasy football league this season? Who are your top two choices to quarterback your fantasy team?

And the bonus question I’m dying to ask, but know Campbell will not publicly answer: Do you trust Daniel Snyder?
