ESPN Says It'll Be Jason Campbell For MNF

Posted by Matt Terl on October 19, 2009 – 11:07 pm

The official word on this week’s quarterback situation is still “TBD” — which may actually be an acronym and not a word — but ESPN’s Matt Mosley, author of the always-informative NFC (B)East blog, begs to differ.

Jason Campbell will get the start at quarterback this week for the Washington Redskins, a league source told ESPN.com’s Matt Mosley on Monday.

The Redskins play a high-profile Monday night game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Oct. 26.

But the backup QB is like the old quantum physics thought experiment about Schroedinger’s cat. Stripping out the details, what you essentially do is construct a situation in which a cat in a box has a precisely 50-50 shot of being dead or alive — and, for as long as that box is sealed, the cat can be considered both dead AND alive. As soon as you open the box, though, the possibilities all collapse into a single truth: either the cat is dead, or he’s alive. The end.

Well, the Redskins opened the box last night to see how Todd Collins was doing, and the results were … mixed. Read more »
