Skins Are Winning 16-10 in the 4th Quarter; Josh Johnson Looks Good But Jason Campbell Has Turned it On

There are about 12 minutes left in the game, and we're up 16-10. The Redskins offense looked atrocious in the first half: three turnovers and no drives of more than 10 or 20 yards. BUT, Jason Campbell has totally turned it on in the second half -- a great TD strike to Chris Cooley, and then an absolutely gorgeous lead of Santana Moss that Moss caught in stride and ran to the endzone.

Meanwhile, the Bucs' Josh Johnson -- who replaced Byron Leftwich at QB last week -- looks quite poised and is very fast. The Bucs have driven down the field and are now on the Skins' 30 yard line -- the blocked extra point by Ronde Barber will loom large if this comes down to a contest of field goals.

Last week I complained about Brian Orakpo's celebration of a standard-issue sack while we were losing to the Lions. This week, the bad-form celebration award goes to DeAngelo Hall. After intercepting Johnson -- and while the Skins were losing 10-3 -- Hall dropped to the ground and gesticulated ostentatiously. Why can't any of the Skins coaches stop this ridiculousness? Norv, Spurrier, Gibbs II, and now Zorn all put up with it.
In Fantasy, Kevin Smith has two TD's (although only 25 total yards) for my C'Ville team; currently I'm beating AdamsMorgan 67-56.
