Meade quarterback Raymond Cotton wears No. 17, and so does the Washington Redskins' Jason Campbell. Cotton is set to go to Auburn, and Campbell had an illustrious career at the Southeastern Conference powerhouse. Both guys are 6 feet 4 - big, athletic quarterbacks with strong arms. The similarities are obvious, so I asked Cotton whether Campbell was the quarterback he most looked up to. He said: "No, he's a real good quarterback and everything, but 17 was just the number one of my coaches gave me."

Cincinnati Bengals star A.J. Green represents the prototypical NFL wide receiver. Big, strong, fast and gifted with immense leaping ability, Green has sure hands and an innate skill for route running. In his first 40 NFL games, Green already has amassed 219 career receptions for 3,269 yards and 23 touchdowns. The 6-foot-4, 205-pound All-Pro caught a career-high 97 passes for 1,350 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. "He's got all the tools," Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees said.

Earlier this season, Washington Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell looked around the NFL and saw that players with as much experience - or even less - were doing something other than holding clipboards during games and running scout teams during practice. When the Tennessee Titans came to FedEx Field last month, there was rookie Vince Young leading his team to its first victory of the 2006 season. Other rookies, such as the Arizona Cardinals' Matt Leinart and Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Bruce Gradkowski, also were starting.

Ravens cornerback Corey Graham buried his face in his hands in the locker room Sunday night, occasionally shaking his head in apparent sadness and bewilderment following a 24-18 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Standing nearby, cornerback Lardarius Webb spoke in a hushed tone with the hood of his sweatshirt pulled over his head. Webb said he couldn't remember ever being so frustrated after a football game. "It's frustrating," Webb said. "We got to go back to work. It was tough. " It was that kind of game for the Ravens' defense, as the secondary was too often confused and a step behind the Browns' receivers at FirstEnergy Stadium.

ASHBURN, Va. -- Think of what Jason Campbell has gone through for the past 18 months this way: What if you were an accountant, and you were only allowed to practice doing tax returns? Or a stage actor who could only rehearse his lines before an empty theater with the lights dimmed? Ever since the Washington Redskins traded three draft picks to get in position to select the former Auburn quarterback No. 25 overall in the 2005 draft, Campbell has been waiting to get on the field for a regular-season game.

ASHBURN, Va. -- For the first nine games of the 2006 season, the quarterback meetings for the Washington Redskins were focused as much on starter Mark Brunell mastering the team's new offense as on what might be in store from opposing defenses. With a quarterback who already had played 13 seasons in the NFL, and had been through the NFC East 2 1/2 times while in Washington, there was little that quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor or the team's two other quarterbacks, Todd Collins and Jason Campbell, could offer that Brunell hadn't seen before.

I recently chatted with Aaron Schatz, the editor-in-chief of Football Outsiders , for an upcoming story that has little, if anything, to do with Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. But after we were done chatting about whatever it was that we were talking about -- you'll find out in a few days -- Schatz wanted to get a point in about Flacco. Earlier in the conversation, I had casually mentioned that most people believe that Flacco is above average . “I don't think it's accepted as conventional wisdom that he is above average,” Schatz later said, circling back to my comment.

When Dean Pees and the Ravens defense watched tape of their Week 2 win over the Cleveland Browns, they saw Brandon Weeden at quarterback and Trent Richardson carrying the load at running back. Wide receiver Josh Gordon was nowhere to be found as he was serving his two-game league suspension. There have been cha-cha-changes in Cleveland over the past several weeks, though. Weeden has been benched twice in favor of journeymen, first for Brian Hoyer and now for Jason Campbell. Richardson was traded to the Indianapolis Colts and the Browns have replaced him with former Ravens running back Willis McGahee.

Chiefs 23, Browns 17 Strategy: While their offense has undergone changes since the Ravens hosted them in Week 2, the Browns continue to have one of the NFL's better defenses. They have a stout 3-4 base defense, and while they do a good job of getting after the quarterback with their four-man rushes, they like to mix in creative blitzes to generate pressure. Their pass rush, along with their mixed coverages, helps mask weak spots in the secondary. Their personnel at the skill positions have changed, but they have not made major tweaks to their offense.

The revolving door has spun around once again in Cleveland, revealing yet another quarterback change for the Browns. For Sunday's game against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, Jason Campbell steps under center to start an NFL regular-season game for the first time since 2011. The 31-year-old replaces demoted starter Brandon Weeden , who was uninspiring in his chance to reclaim his grip on the job following Bryan Hoyer 's season-ending knee injury.

Traveling into Redskins country is nothing new to Ravens quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn, who still lives in Northern Virginia. His trip down the parkway will be different Saturday because the Ravens continue their preseason schedule at Washington's FedEx Field, Zorn's personal house of horrors last year. This marks the first time Zorn will face the Redskins since he was coldly fired seven months ago. Zorn, 57, still gets paid by the Redskins (he's owed $2.4 million this season)

ASHBURN, Va. - Another day, another barrage of second-guessing for Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs. Fans and local sports talk radio stations have had more than 48 hours to digest Gibbs' decision to use the 25th overall pick of the NFL draft on Auburn quarterback Jason Campbell, but time did little to stem the tide of questions aimed at Gibbs. When NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue announced Washington's pick of Campbell on Saturday, some fans at the team's draft-day party at FedEx Field booed.

The last time Donovan McNabb held up such a jersey, his last name and the familiar No. 5 hastily stitched in foreign colors, he was 22 years old and just hours removed from the NFL draft. Then, just as now, the expectations found his shoulders with much more force than celebratory confetti flakes. The colors are now burgundy and gold. The name, the number and the haughty expectations, though, are the same. "It feels like being drafted again," McNabb said Tuesday, less than 48 hours removed from the Easter trade that took his career from Philadelphia to Washington.
