#1 concept the Redskins might want to bring to their game against the Bucs this Sunday: STOP SUCKING SO BAD.

Deep touchdown passes from Jason Campbell?

I watched the NFL.com preview for this game and Jim Zorn comes across as a total douche. That's a shame because I was really rooting for him to do well at the beginning of last year after seeing all the crazy drills he ran, but I can see why his players reportedly don't like him.

Fortunately, the WR only got one foot down inbounds.
