Here we are in the final week of another losing season for the Cleveland Browns, and quarterback Jason Campbell has plans to cut it loose.

What has taken him so long? Campbell could be running out of time to show he is worth a roster spot on an NFL team, and he picks week 17 to cut it loose.

The Browns travel to Pittsburgh to play the Steelers in their final game of the season, and Campbell plans to show up and cut it loose. Can the Browns give him the protection needed to cut it loose?

The last time Campbell played the Steelers, it was at home at first energy stadium and he was knocked out of the game and suffered a concussion.

Campbell was side-lined and the Browns didn’t fare very well with Weeden playing at quarterback. Campbell has played in the NFL for 8 seasons.

He has played for the Washington Redskins who drafted him in the 1st round of the 2005 draft with the 25th pick. He then played for the raiders in 2010-2011 before the Browns ended his finest season by breaking his collar-bone and then Campbell found himself playing the back up role with the Chicago Bears.

Jason Campbell has the arm and the brains to make every throw required of an NFL quarterback. He hasn’t exactly lit the world on fire in Cleveland, although he has shown signs of brilliance with good games against the Chiefs, the Ravens and the New England Patriots.

Campbell has fell victim to the Browns defensive collapses in the games the team should have won. He proved he could play with the best quarterbacks in the NFL, but the end results don’t rank him as the winner the fans were hoping to see.

Campbell is just about out of time to show he is a quality NFL quarterback. This Sunday could be Campbell’s last shot to show the NFL he has what it takes to compete.

If Campbell can truly cut it loose and take the Browns to the end-zone in Pittsburgh, he has to wonder if his Browns defense can keep Roethlisberger and company out of their end zone.

Jason Campbell is running out of time and he has to cut it loose if he wants to return to the Cleveland Browns next season.

      “The whole Browns team needs to cut loose! They also need to play for the pride and bragging rights of the rivalry. The Browns need to earn respect.”

        What rivalry? That went to Baltimore with the original team. The fact that the Browns can’t compete with Pittsburgh has diminished this game to just another game in the eyes of the Steelers. Until we become the Old Browns, the rivalry is DEAD!

    The Browns need to cut J. Campbell and B. Weeden to make room for our QB we will pick up in the draft.

    So frankly I really don’t care if we win or lose this last game, since it doesn’t make us look any better nor does it change much of our losing season.

    Also, what RIVALRY do we have? None! Oh you must be talking about what Cleveland and Pittsburgh used to have. Well haven’t seen that in many years with the Browns continuously having seasons ending in double digit losses.
