Another Facet Of My Job

Posted by Matt Terl on March 26, 2009 – 3:04 pm

There are a lot of facets to my job that I didn’t expect when I signed on. For the most part, it’s nothing too surprising, and often it’s a lot of fun — the regular appearances on Redskins Nation come to mind.

And then there’s keeping the rain off of Chris Cooley.

As you’ve probably gathered, Cooley is a heck of a nice guy, and mostly not at all like you might expect an NFL Pro Bowl player to be. But he’s developed a real aversion to the rain, and now that workouts have started … well, he can bring an umbrella to work, but he can’t very well hold it while he’s working out.

Thursday, March 26: And Finally, Campbell On Campbell

Posted by Matt Terl on March 26, 2009 – 11:02 am

Well, this is a relief. Yesterday, I had two posts about what people were saying about Jason Campbell in the media … and I think we all know that nobody ever rests at a two-parter. Whether you’re making an overly self-important science fiction movie or hammering the local college basketball coach, it’s vitally important to structure your work in trilogy form whenever possible. So I humbly offer big thanks to Ryan O’Halloran at the Washington Times for providing the Return Of The Jedi to this particular three-parter.

In some ways, this is a familiar article. It feels like every year we read one of these “Jason Campbell has to prove himself” pieces, like . There’s a slightly different feel to this one, though — this is, after all, a Jason Campbell who has finally gotten to experience headlines like “With Tough Love From Zorn, Campbell Now Among Elite QBs”.

He still sounds somewhat resigned, somewhat tired of the questions, but he also sounds much more confident than in the past, and when he describes the team’s future success, it sounds much less far-fetched and abstract.

“I smiled about it and said, ‘Here we go again,’ ” Campbell said. “It went over my head. It’s March, and people want things to talk about. Everybody’s into the quarterback and anything that’s going on with him.

“I felt like I had good numbers last year,” Campbell added. “We weren’t a straight-up passing team – they passed more in Denver. In the first half, when our guys were healthy, we were rolling, and the only thing stopping us was us. A lot of things unfolded in the second that didn’t go our way. I feel I can be a top quarterback in the league, so that talk didn’t bother me at all.”

Campbell also describes a slight change to the approach this offseason that should please a lot of his more strident critics … or at least show them that he shares their primary concern: Read more »
