Source: Campbell to start against Eagles - NFC East - ESPN
Redskins head coach Jim Zorn has informed quarterback Jason Campbell that he will start next Monday against the Eagles, a league source told the Beast this evening. Zorn went out of his way to make it clear that he would choose the starter -- despite having his play-calling duties stripped following Sunday's 14-6 loss to the Chiefs at FedEx Field.
Once Again, Reid Needs to Balance the Offense

Bingo! You're not calling plays anymore, Jim Zorn. Sherm Lewis is coming out of retirement to do it for you. With a pained expression, Washington Redskins coach Zorn announced Monday that the front office "strongly suggested" that he yield his play-calling duties to a consultant hired only two weeks ago. While he didn't say he was given an ultimatum, Zorn said he would comply with the request "because I want to stay here and win." "Sometimes we have to do things that are uncomfortable," Zorn said.
