Al Saunders, Jason Campbell Reunited With Oakland Raiders

You remember Al Saunders, right? He held the title of Associate Head Coach-Offense with the Washington Redskins in the 2006 and 2007 seasons, and he is an offensive genius. To prove that he is an offensive genius, he wrote a 700 page playbook.


Likewise, I've decided recently that I'm somewhat of a genius at programming my DVR. I will now attempt to prove this by writing a 700 page book about it. It might not be much of a best seller, and it might be filled with utter drivel and some large scale doodles, but it will be 700 pages gosh darnit. Because I'm a genius.


Anyway, Saunders will, according to an ESPN report, be joining the staff of another former Redskins offensive coordinator Hue Jackson, who was recently appointed head coach of the Oakland Raiders. As you're probably aware, the Raiders' quarterback is former Redskins starter Jason Campbell.


Under Saunders in 2006 and 2007, Campbell had the two worst statistical seasons of his career. Campbell's 12 touchdowns to 11 interceptions in 2007 was a big part of the reason that Saunders would not return the following year. With the two united once again in Oakland, the results could very likely be about the same. Unless maybe Saunders has added a few hundred more pages.
