I've never understood the knock on Jason Campbell. Sure he's not Manning or Brady, but he's shown that he's a serviceable NFL QB. Going back to his days at Auburn, how many different offensive coordinators has this guy had? Seems like he's had a new one every year.
I'm not forgetting last year but this isn't the same. Tell me the team that would then be ranked behind USC that would get a win big enough to justify it. They'd all be coming off a recent loss, or not playing at all.
