Shrewd Shanahan,  Dim Davis?

You have to feel sorry for ex-Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell. He’s labored under a new offensive coordinator almost every year since high school, and how many quarterbacks are going to improve under those conditions? Maybe none.

And now Jason Campbell is a Raider. (“There but for the grace of god,” I hear Ben Roethlisberger whispering. And not only Ben Roethlisberger.)

I always thought Campbell had some talent. But obviously Mike Shanahan doesn’t think so. The fact that Shanahan sent the young quarterback to the Raiders speaks more than volumes. No need to rehash Shanahan’s history with Al Davis. We all know the story, the depth of the animosity between Shanahan and Raiders’ coach Al Davis.

Animosity? Let’s try hatred.

It was perplexing to many of us when Andy Reid traded Donovan McNabb to their division rival Redskins, but I think the Eagles organization was actually trying to do right by McNabb. (Stranger things have happened, though at the moment I can’t think of one.) After all, they didn’t trade him to the Raiders, and they easily could have.

But Shanahan trading Campbell to the Raiders isn’t perplexing at all. The only perplexing thing is that Al Davis agreed to it. Can doddering old silver-jumpsuited Al really think he’s going to put one over on the young whippersnapper Shanahan? Doesn’t he know that the one thing you don’t do when your ex sends you a pie is eat it?

That’s too sad to even contemplate. (Just like Bernie Goldberg’s “attack” on Jon Stewart the other day. Too sad, too pathetic to even think about.)

Here’s the likely scenario: Shanahan knows something Al Davis doesn’t, and here he is, able to unload a player he no longer wants and stick it to Al Davis at the same time. That’s two big birds with one stone. So all Shanahan could get for Campbell was a fourth round pick in 2012. Big deal.

Shanahan was in this for a different kind of prize.
