quarterback Jason Campbell

\ While backup/free agent-to-be Todd Collins was so good after Campbell was hurt on Dec. 6 that he was named the NFC’s Offensive Player of the Month, the fourth-year man doesn’t believe his grip on the starting job has been loosend.\

\ “I feel like I’m the guy,” Campbell said.\

\ Of course, that will be decided by the next coach and whether that man keeps associate head coach Al Saunders in charge of the offense. Campbell, who changed offensive systems every year from his freshman season at Auburn through 2006, his second year in Washington, of course said that he wants assistant head coach/defense Gregg Williams to replace Gibbs and Williams to retain Saunders. Campbell said those decisions would help his “growing process” as a quarterback.\

\ As for his dislocated left kneecap, Campbell said it’s “probably 85 to 90 percent” healed. Director of sports medicine Bubba Tyer said that if the Redskins had advanced to the NFC Championship Game at Green Bay, Campbell probably would have been available. Although Collins would undoubtedly be starting after winning six straight games.
