Good for them.
I like the move as well. I wouldn't be surprised if Shanahan wanted to bring in his own QB though.
I'm sure he will eventually, but Campbell fits his system pretty well. Campbell is mobile, can throw on the run, and has a very strong arm. That's exactly what he looks for in a QB. He likes to run a lot play-action and bootlegs, which could really take advantage of Campbell's athleticism.
Plus, the Skin's WR corps is pretty solid. Devin Thomas, Santana Moss, Malcolm Kelly, and Chris Cooley give him plenty of weapons to work with. Shanahan made guys like Ashley Lelie and Eddie Royal look great, so those guys should all be very excited. Plus, Portis (and Tatum Bell, Cecil Sapp, Mike Anderson, Mike Bell, Selvin Young, Quinten Griffin, etc) had is best days under Mike's zone-blocking scheme. He runs it as effective as anyone.
If there's one glaring weaking for the Skins, it's the Oline. If there's one thing Shanahan knows how to manufacture, it's an Oline. He'll turn them around quickly. Plus, he able to do it without necessary drafting lineman early. Smaller, more mobile lineman work well in his system. If he gets that offense firing, the defense could also really benefit because they'd actually be able to catch their breath during a game.
Again, great move by Snyder.
