Marker Inside the Herd: TE Mark Campbell [5:28 PM] reports: 'Everything's going great and I appreciate your concern. I think that this season we'll start off how we ended last season. We won eight of our last 10 and I think we started scoring more points as an offense and we started being a lot more productive. I think you're going to see us start faster this year, even with a new quarterback in J.P. Losman. He's going to bring some other things to the table that will equal points. I think my role in that is I want to be there for J.P. as much as possible. A lot of times the tight ends run shorter routes and I want to be there for J.P. so he can make some easy throws and build some confidence, and I'm sure he's going to get the ball to the other playmakers as well. But a big emphasis we've made is spreading the ball around and being a more well-balanced team.'
