I haven't watched any ARZ games yet this year —  guessing he is playing pretty good if the comp is moving up a round.  Anyone seen him play?  Is Arizona using him differently than we were?

Watch the cards v bills game. Great game and amazing finish in an otherwise horrible week of games. Cards use Campbell inside and he is a solid yet unspectacular mlb for them. Pretty much the same as what he was here except we used him outside. Tbh letting him go was a good thing and I’ll credit TD because Foye is a much better difference maker at Olb and like Hurst is a cheaper upgrade with more upside than his predecessor

He seems pretty much the same to me, I live down in Az now and have seen most of their games.  He flashes here and there but mostly goes unnoticed.  Like primetime said, not sad he was let walk.

I know not to put too much stock into pff grades but he has a 49.8 grade on the season

I hate to say this but he seems to have a classic case of the Brookings - lots of pile on tackles which are good for the stat sheets but not really effective overall. I really didn’t mind Keith overall but I also never got him confused with The Hammer. Foye is easily outplaying him this year and is hands down our most improved player on last year.

Don't mean to derail, but always wondered where that notion about Brooking came from. Per Pro-Football-Reference, for his career he was greater than 3:1 solos:assists in the tackle column and went to five Pro Bowls. He was a very good linebacker.

People forget how good he was for us because of how he looked towards the end of his career. Everyone remembers the play vs. Arizona in the playoffs and add on the fact that he went to the Cowboys and celebrated after making a big play. The guy was a very good player for us and played his butt off while here. No complaints here.

Guilty as charged! I still wake up with nightmares of Brookings biting on that 3rd down.... I need help.  Like Austin Hooper, I really like Campbell and will continue to hope good things come their way. Definitely the right decision to let them walk.

I remember people swearing Campbell was a good LB here. He is athletic with very little awareness. Every time Foye stepped in the game, he looked better because he just didn't do stupid stuff. So glad they didn't bring 59 back. 

Yeah, it was funny because that was the knock on him coming out of school. I drank the coolaid on him and thought he was way better than he was. With Foye starting now, it is easier to realize how much of a problem Campbell was.

Also the LBer we drafted this year wasn't too shabby either, so I'll take that fifth rounder. One of the better decisions TD made. Thing with Campbell is he made alot of stupid decisions and we had a simple playbook.

Mostly Athell, Ovie, and FFS1970 lol...he pissed me off with all the blown coverages, and missed tackles. Do not miss.

He's been the same as he was here. Not much of an impact guy IMO, struggles in coverage isn't much of a factor against the run. I've watched like three Cards games and haven't really noticed him at all.

I think even at his peak he was just a tad overrated by the media. Still, super solid LBer for the Falcons for a long time, and yea, he wasn't as good after he turned 30 and a lot of people remember those lesser years and forget dude made so many plays for so many years before that... then the shenanigans after he left just pretty much cemented the poor reputation he had built up the last few years of his career. Still you look at his career objectively and he's basically Jessie Tuggle. Sad that one is loved and the other disregarded or hated.

So much of a problem. It's fine as a rookie, because they were rookie mistakes. But when he was a 3rd and 4th year vet making the same mistakes, I cooled on him quickly.

He's been very solid for them. Not a playmaker though

Yeah, he probably was. He was a great story though. Local kid who wasn’t really recruited and walked on at GT. Worked his tail off and became a 1st round pick for his home team. He was the type of player that everyone could rally around. His weaknesses were highlighted more because we have never been able to build a defense. No matter the coaching staff our defense has been towards the bottom half of the league.
