Jason Campbell Is Sensitive

I am not sure if anyone noticed this from the Washington Post yesterday, but apparently, Jason Campbell, quarterback for the Washington Redskins, is a crier! That's right, the quarterback of the future for the Redskins actually cried after his team's loss to the Cowboys on Sunday.
Campbell cried after Sunday's loss, angry with himself for a late-game interception on what overall was his best performance in the NFL. "It's tough, we keep losing all these close games and we're playing so hard as a team," he said. "You're fighting your hearts out and it seems like things don't go our way towards the end of games"

What the hell is that? Who the hell is Campbell, Dick Vermil? Norv Turner? Now, I am as big a fan as anyone of Jason Campbell, I think he's the quarterback that DC has been waiting decades for, but come on son, THERE IS NO CRYING IN FOOTBALL! You lost the game, you made some bad passes, your defense collapsed against a superior opponent in the 4th quarter, your coach made dubious calls...BUT DONT YOU DARE CRY ABOUT A LOSS??

Some people will say "At least he cares that much to actually cry," but I say bullshit, you don't inspire your fellow football players by crying, you make them pity you. I didn't see Romo crying after he botched a snap and hold on a field goal in the playoffs? I am rooting for you Jason, but grow a pair, if you want to take the next leap to greatness in the NFL, the first step is to stop your crying and just make some plays in the 4th quarter.

Maybe Jason just watched too much Rosie Grier in his youth:

Or maybe he was a big fan of Duke basketball growing up.
