Coach, did you think about replacing Jason Campbell?

No.

Are you lying?

No.

Has Jason Campbell threatened to extort $2 million from you with pictures he has of your playbook?

Not that I know of.

This Jim Zorn guy, he just won't budge.

You can turn over the ball four times.

You can throw three interceptions and everything but the game away.

You can have a quarterback rating nine points less than your age (18.1) after two of the most God-awful quarters of football imaginable.

You can have Hall of Famer Sonny Jurgensen saying at halftime on the radio broadcast that he would go to the bullpen, calling for Todd Collins to relieve you.

Heck, you can be outplayed by someone named Josh Johnson, who sounds more like a "Dawson's Creek" extra than a guy starting his first NFL game for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
