knowledge316 Posted May 10, 2009 Share Posted May 10, 2009 I think he can be a franchise QB, if you can remember the Giants fans where calling for Eli to be out of NY the same year he won the Super Bowl. Jason Campbell has improved every year he has started which has only been 2 1/2 years and not 5 years. He is going into his 5th season from the time he was drafted in 2005 and did not play because Gibbs didn't believe in playing rookie QB's.But from what you're saying and whatever your method of evaluating QB's is Steve Young, Brett Farve, Eli Manning, Drew Brees and quite a few others would have been cut by you and virtually all of those guys stayed in the same offensive system for their first few seasons in the NFL (which is huge) more than what some of you even realize. Our impatient, win now at all cost Owner is costing this team NOT Jason Campbell. Tell me how did he do so well in the first 8 games when the lines where healthy etc etc etc, but reversed the last 8? And tell me why did Clinton Potis numbers fell WAAAYYYYY off the last 8 games too while you're at it? So based on his progressions througout all the adversities he faced and improving every year while under center would lead me to believe that he can be a franchise QB RED06 First, I don't think Eli is that good. But somehow, he manages to play well in the 4th quarter. Eli was also taking his team to the playoffs. As for JC and the first half of the season, I believe that has more to do with Zorn being a new coach and no one had any tape on him as to what his tendencies were. Mind you, JC didn't play great in all 8 games, I would say he played decent vs Philly, St Louis, and Cleveland (weeks 5-7), and vs Detroit he had a good game, but that team couldn't stop anybody. Steve Young was before my time, but he was with TB for 1st 2 seasons and went to SF. He played limited time in SF and had good numbers 10TD/0int his first few games with SF in his 3rd season overall. Also, I don't know if you know this or not, but he was a backup to some guy named Joe Montana. He wasn't brought it to start immediately. Brett Favre showed enough in his first season playing, when he started 13 games so I don't know why you would say that by whatever method I use, he would have been cut. His 3rd season starting, he threw for 33TDs/13ints. As for Brees, he didn't play his 1st season. The year he had the breakout season, SD drafted Rivers so they did give up on him. It's pointless talking about JC as the so-called "haters" and "apologists" won't change their minds. So the best thing to do is just wait and see what happens this season with no excuses. I'm done talking about JC on this board. Nothing will change with either side of the fans opinions. Once the season starts, everyone will hope that he performs and the team wins. If the offense doesn't improve, JC will be gone and there will still be people making excuses for JC for one thing or another. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
