I hope Campbell stays healthy...

I am one who has always disliked Campbell, the guy is content with completing the shortest check down pass and refuses to take shots whatsoever. Can't win with a guy like that, no matter how good your defense is.

Awesome... I feel so much better about having him as Cutler's backup.

Love the defense but Campbell will not and has not moved the ball with a semblance of consistentsy for years now. I'd rather have Jay in there, he may mess up but at least he isn't afraid to challenge a defense. He allows people the chance to make a play
