QB Jason Campbell to

There's a Sports Illustrated Superstition that being on the cover is the “kiss of death.” According to Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post, Jason Campbell will appear on this months' SI cover, with the text “Jason Campbell must step up or step aside for the Redskins.”
Yes, I admit, he wasn't that great last year, but neither was the rest of the offense.  Jason had to work through all the rumours of trade deals this offseason, yet still step up and try and lead this team throughout the offseason and training camp.  The pressure would be enough for any other QB, but now the “honour” of gracing the cover of SI before the regular season starts is enough to crack anyone.

If Jim Zorn is keeping to his word that Campbell is his guy, the whole Redskin team, coaches and fans need to stand behind him and break this SI curse.  There is a lot of talent on this team and to have Campbell finally break out and hit the numbers that he is so capable of hitting (not that he's healthy and has a coach behind him) would be just the thing to stop this superstition in its track.
