I agree that Campbell was a terrible pick...especially in the 1st round. Brunell is 35, so while he is having a great year his days are numbered. Brunell's resurgence will allow Campbell time to learn and develop which he badly needs. Who knows, maybe Gibbs knows more then I do.
I agree that it was a terrible pick, too. I don't see him as anything special. Of course, I've always been a proponent for drafting for upside, which has its flaws very often. Campbell just didn't impress me that much. I think he was a product of the system and his superb RBs more than a great QB.
However, he was Gibbs' pick (unlike Ramsey) and they gave up a lot to take him. He is definitely the QB of the future. Even though Brunell's good performance this year will make them hesitate a bit, I believe that Campbell will be the starting QB as early as next year. He will be given every opportunity to win the job in camp before the 2006 season, IMO. I actually do not think they're going to make the playoffs this year, so it won't be that debatable. Remember that Palmer was named starting QB after Kitna led the Bengals to an 8-8 season. Palmer was
the #1 pick, but Campbell is the QB of the future, just as Palmer was.
"The son of Bobby Bowden once again proved he's as predictable as a Julia Roberts' movie.
And upon further review, just as sappy, too."
