Campbell can't find wide receivers
Posted Mar. 24 at 04:24 PM
Looking at Washington’s offense, the team’s wide receivers really did a lot better last year after Todd Collins took over. When Jason Campbell was starting at quarterback (and he started 13 games), Santana Moss and Antwaan Randle El caught only one touchdown combined.
That was truly pitiful, and played a big role in Washington being the only team other than one-win Miami without a wide receiver that scored 4 TDs. For Washington, tight end Chris Cooley led the way, catching 7 of the 12 TD passes that Campbell threw.
But back to those wide receivers. They were just a lot better with Todd Collins.
Santana Moss with Campbell at QB (11 games)
average = 50 yards per game
TD in 1 of 11 games
Santana Moss with Collins at QB (4 games)
average = 82 yards per game
TD in 3 of 4 games
Antwaan Randle El with Campbell at QB (12 games)
average = 53 yards per game
TD in none of 12 games
Antwaan Randle El with Collins at QB (4 games)
average = 48 yards per game
TD in 2 of 4 games
Conclusion: These guys – particularly Moss – should do a lot better if Washington at some point decides to go with Collins. But that’s not the plan. Washington used a first-round pick on Collins and wants to get him established at quarterback.
