First and foremost let me start off by congratulating, Browns quarterback Jason Campbell who was named AFC Player of the week. It has been a long time since the Browns have had a player receive this honor.
Campbell’s performance on and off the field is exactly what this Cleveland Browns team needed. Not only is he helping the Browns to be a competitive football team, his veteran leadership is exactly what this team needs.
Campbell has played in the NFL long enough to know the game of football and he inspires others on the team to perform at the level necessary to win football games.
So far, his leadership on the field has produced a result this team needs. He is 1-1 and should be 2-0 had it there not been mistakes made in the KC game.
Campbell should a ton of courage coming back into the game against the Ravens with a rib injury he sustained in the early part of the 1st quarter.
This showed the team his commitment to helping this team win football games. He played well, and the results speak volumes about his ability to lead this football team.
Campbell sees this teams willingness to compete grow with every practice. He sees the other guys stepping up to make the plays necessary to compete.
He keeps inspiring the young guys that surround him in the huddle to play better. We saw a great performance from Greg Little against the Ravens and we saw Davone Bess, step up and make 3 big catches to push the Browns past the Ravens.
All of these guys are responding to the leadership abilities of Jason Campbell. He talks to them during the week and he lets them know what is needed come game day.
It is clear to see the respect these guys are giving Campbell. When you see a guy come in injured to lead the team to a win, you can’t help but to play at a higher level in the NFL.
Campbell has to stay healthy, he gives the Browns the best chance to win and the team could be part of the play-off picture this season which is something the rest of the NFL is talking about.
When was the last time others stood up and took notice of a Cleveland Browns team around the league and talked play-offs? Cleveland is gaining respect in the NFL and it is about time.
