Of Course My Redskins Are Interested in Cutler

Word is that the Redskins are one of the teams that is strongly thinking about trading for QB Jay Cutler. Of course they are. When I heard that the Broncos were looking to deal Cutler away, I just figured that Washington would be in the hunt.

The thing is, I don't know how I feel about that. I just spent another season defending current Skins' QB Jason Campbell and it would be hypocritical of me to ship him out of town. He's been here for four years, been with Jim Zorn for one year and I don't think he's been given a fair shake yet.

I do like Campbell. He's a likeable guy with a cannon arm, huge body and seems to be a hard worker. He has suffered from too much turnover during his big-time football career. He had three offensive coordinators while at LSU and has three coordinators while with the Redskins. The Skins went from the Joe Gibbs big play offense to the Jim Zorn dink-and-dunk offense last year. Campbell got out to a great start (too bad it didn't end well). That shows me that he is learning and if he got a chance to actually stick with a system for a couple of years, it's gonna click for him.

Cutler has more name power. People see his All-Pro season and automatically think he'd be better than Campbell. Maybe they are right -- I don't know. Part of me salivates at the thought of Zorn coaching a guy like Cutler and molding him into a top tier QB.

This is a tough call.

Campbell played for Auburn, not LSU
