A 2000 graduate of Taylorsville High School in Taylorsville, Mississippi, Campbell went on to play college football at Auburn. As a starter, he had a different offensive coordinator every year, finally finding success in his senior year when he led the Tigers to an undefeated season in 2004 and was named the SEC Player of the Year and MVP of the SEC Championship Game. Campbell previously held the record for the longest touchdown completion in Auburn football history, an 87-yard pass to Silas Daniels in a 2004 matchup versus Louisiana Tech, a record that is now held by Cam Newton, who completed a 94-yard pass to Emory Blake on October 2, 2010 in their victory over Louisiana-Monroe. Campbell graduated from Auburn with a degree in public administration.

Campbell was drafted as the 25th pick in the 2005 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins under General Manager Vinny Cerrato. The Redskins traded up in the draft to get Campbell, surrendering a third round pick in the 2005 NFL draft, along with first and fourth round picks in 2006. Campbell didn't play in his rookie season, sitting on the bench behind Mark Brunell and Patrick Ramsey. On November 13, 2006, Campbell was named the Redskins starting quarterback, and on November 19, 2006, Campbell made his first career start. Despite losing in his first start to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Campbell was praised for his poise.
On November 26, 2006, Campbell had his first win of his pro career, leading the Redskins to a 17–13 victory over the Carolina Panthers. Campbell completed 11 passes on 23 attempts for only 118 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception. Campbell threw a 66-yard touchdown pass to tight end Chris Cooley in the fourth quarter.
On August 18, 2007, Campbell was tackled at the knee by Pittsburgh Steelers' DE Brett Keisel in the second preseason game. Initially, the injury looked severe but Campbell eventually walked off the field on his own. Trainers said that Campbell's ligaments were not torn and announced his injury as a bruised knee.
On December 6, 2007, Campbell dislocated the patellar ligament of his left knee during a game against the Chicago Bears. The injury did not require surgery but Campbell did not play for the remainder of the season.
When Joe Gibbs retired for a second time at the end of the 2007 season, the Redskins hired Jim Zorn, first as offensive coordinator and then naming him head coach. Zorn said at the time he would also serve as quarterbacks coach.
The Redskins started the season 6–2, prompting observers to declare Campbell one of the NFL's elite quarterbacks, and the "tough love" approach from head coach Jim Zorn a success. The team, however, then went on to lose six of their remaining eight games to end the season 8–8, missing the playoffs. At the end of the season, it was unclear if the Redskins were on the road to improvement or decline. Questions arose on the future of Campbell as the starting quarterback for the Washington Redskins.
Despite pursuing other quarterbacks in the offseason, the Redskins were unable to acquire Jay Cutler or Mark Sanchez, opting to start Campbell for the last year of his contract. Campbell and the Redskins ended 2009 with a 4–12 record, one of the worst in Redskins' history. The often rocky relationship Campbell had with head coach Jim Zorn ended with Zorn's firing. New Washington head coach Mike Shanahan said the Redskins would tender Campbell an offer leading up to the 2010 free agent period, ensuring that if he signed with another team, Washington would receive draft picks in compensation.
After the Redskins acquired Donovan McNabb, Campbell was traded to the Oakland Raiders on April 24, 2010 for a fourth round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. On the same day, Campbell received a one-year contract extension through the 2011 season. Raiders owner Al Davis compared Campbell to former Raiders quarterback Jim Plunkett.
In the opening game on the road against the Tennessee Titans, Campbell had an unspectacular start to his Raiders career as the Raiders were routed 38–13. He would complete 22 of 37 passes for 180 yards and throw one touchdown and one interception. Campbell and rookie offensive linemen Jared Veldheer, playing in the unfamiliar role of center, would also suffer multiple miscues and combine for three fumbles, losing one. The offense as a whole would fail to click until the fourth quarter when Campbell completed 7 of 9 passes in a 12-play, 72-yard drive that culminated in a 7-yard touchdown pass to Darren McFadden. In week two against the St. Louis Rams Campbell would endure another lackluster performance, completing 8 of 15 passes for a mere 87 yards and an interception. At half-time he was benched in favor of his backup, Bruce Gradkowski, in the hope of providing the Raiders offense with the spark it desperately needed. Gradkowski would go on to lead the Raiders to a tight 16–14 victory.
Following Campbell's less than inspiring performances in the first two weeks, the Raiders' coaching staff decided to go with Bruce Gradkowski as the starting quarterback and demoted Campbell to the role of backup. The offense would show a marked improvement in the Week 3 and 4 match-ups against the Arizona Cardinals and Houston Texans respectively. Gradkowski would throw for 255 and 278 yards albeit in losing efforts. During the Week 5 home game against the Chargers, Campbell would come off the bench late in the first quarter to replace an injured Gradkowski. Behind a solid game by running back Michael Bush, Campbell was vastly improved as he completed 13 of 18 passes for 159 yards and a touchdown. Aided by a touchdown on a blocked punt in the first quarter and a forced fumble returned for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter, the Raiders would win the game 35–27 and snap a 13-game losing streak against the Chargers dating back to 2003.
After his improved play in the relief effort against the Chargers and with Gradkowski injured, Campbell was re-installed as the starter for the Week 6 match-up against the cross-Bay rival San Francisco 49ers. The Raiders were unable to find any spark on offense as Campbell once again struggled, completing just 8 of 21 passes for 83 yards and throwing two interceptions. The Raiders would go down 17–9 to then winless 49ers. Although coming off of his worst performance as a Raider, Campbell was assured the start against the division rival Denver Broncos in Week 7 due to Gradkowski's continuing struggles with the shoulder injury he sustained against the Chargers. Campbell and the Raiders started hot against the Broncos, jumping out to a 24–0 lead by the end of the first quarter and never let up in a 59–14 rout. The 59 points scored was a new franchise record. Campbell would complete 12 of 20 passes for 204 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions for a QB rating of 127.9. Campbell would throw a 43-yard touchdown pass to tight end Zach Miller on the game's opening drive and a 19-yard touchdown pass to running back Darren McFadden.
Ironically, while Campbell was benched by coach's decision, the Raiders lost all three of the games that Campbell did not play in, as the Raiders finished the season at 8–8 and missed the playoffs. They were able to sweep all six division games, and Campbell ended the season with his second-highest quarterback rating of any season (84.5).
In 2011, Campbell started the first 6 games, leading Oakland to a 4–2 record before suffering a collarbone injury. To replace him, the Raiders traded draft picks to the Cincinnati Bengals for veteran quarterback Carson Palmer.
Campbell signed with the Chicago Bears on March 13, 2012 to a one-year contract as a backup to Jay Cutler. In Week 10 against the Houston Texans, Campbell replaced Cutler, who had gone down with a concussion. In the game, Campbell completed 11 of 19 passes for 94 yards and a 70.9 passer rating. On November 16, Cutler was ruled out of the Bears-San Francisco 49ers game, meaning Campbell would start the game. The Bears went on to lose 32–7; although Campbell had a 13-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Marshall in the third quarter, he also threw two interceptions and was sacked five times.
On September 18, 2013 it was announced that previous 3rd string quarterback Brian Hoyer would start ahead of Campbell for the team's next game on September 22, 2013 against the Minnesota Vikings, as starting quarterback Brandon Weeden sat with a thumb injury.
On October 23, it was announced Campbell would receive his first start as a Brown Week 8 vs the Kansas City Chiefs. The outing resulted in a 23–17 loss for the Browns, although Campbell's performance was viewed favorably, passing for 293 yards, 2 touchdowns and no interceptions. In week 9 Campbell snapped the Browns 11 game losing streak to the Ravens, throwing for 262 yards and 3 scores on his way to AFC offensive player of the week honors  Campbell ended the 2013 season 1–7 as a starter for the Browns.
On March 12, 2014, Campbell was released by the Browns, along with fellow quarterback Weeden.
On March 19, 2014, Campbell signed a one-year deal worth $1.5 million with $400,000 guaranteed with the Cincinnati Bengals. He served as a backup to starter to Andy Dalton, only appearing in four games as a late game replacement for Dalton.
In April 2015, Campbell strongly hinted at retirement, declining offers from multiple teams. He was approached by the Indianapolis Colts in November 2015, but declined to come out of retirement to be a backup to Matt Hasselbeck, who was starting in place of an injured Andrew Luck.

The 2004 All-SEC football team consists of American football players selected to the All-Southeastern Conference (SEC) chosen by the Associated Press (AP) and the conference coaches for the 2004 NCAA Division I-A football season.
The Auburn Tigers won the conference, beating the Tennessee Volunteers 38 to 28 in the SEC Championship Game. Despite finishing the season undefeated, the Tigers were not invited to the National Championship Game, and won the Sugar Bowl over the Virginia Tech Hokies 16 to 13.
Auburn quarterback Jason Campbell was voted AP SEC Offensive Player of the Year. Georgia defensive end David Pollack, a unanimous AP selection, was voted AP SEC Defensive Player of the Year.2004 Auburn Tigers football team
The 2004 Auburn Tigers football team represented Auburn University in the 2004 NCAA Division I-A football season. Auburn compiled a record of 13–0, winning the Southeastern Conference championship and finishing the season ranked #2 in both the AP Poll and the Coaches' Poll. Beginning the season ranked #17 in the AP poll and #18 in the Coaches' Poll, the Tigers were denied a berth in the BCS National Championship Game because they finished the regular season ranked #3 in the BCS rankings. Head coach Tommy Tuberville, who was nearly fired after the 2003 season, was named national Coach of the Year by the Associated Press. This was Auburn's third undefeated season in which they played over ten games. It is widely criticized that this team was not chosen to the go to the national championship game, especially after the USC scandal.The team defeated LSU, Georgia, and Tennessee (twice, facing them a second time in the SEC Championship game), all of whom were ranked opponents. They were left out of the BCS National Championship Game, and instead went to the 2005 Sugar Bowl, beating #9 Virginia Tech, 16–13, to finish 13–0. USC and Oklahoma played for the national title in the Orange Bowl. USC's national title was later vacated by the NCAA. Both Darryl W. Perry and GBE College Football Ratings awarded their national titles to Auburn.The team's roster featured four first-round NFL draft picks in running back Carnell Williams, running back Ronnie Brown, defensive back Carlos Rogers, and quarterback Jason Campbell, as well as five future Pro Bowl participants in offensive linemen Marcus McNeill and Ben Grubbs, running back Ronnie Brown, Carlos Rogers, and defensive tackle Jay Ratliff. Permanent team captains were Campbell, Williams, Brown, Rogers, and Bret Eddins.2005 Sugar Bowl
The 2005 Sugar Bowl was a postseason American college football bowl game between the Virginia Tech Hokies and the Auburn Tigers at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana, on January 3, 2005. It was the 71st edition of the annual Sugar Bowl football contest. Virginia Tech represented the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) in the contest, while Auburn represented the Southeastern Conference (SEC). In a defensive struggle, Auburn earned a 16–13 victory despite a late-game rally by Virginia Tech.
Virginia Tech was selected as a participant in the game after winning the ACC football championship during the team's first year in the conference. Tech, which finished 10–2 in the regular season prior to the Sugar Bowl, defeated 16th-ranked Virginia and ninth-ranked Miami en route to the game. Auburn finished the regular season undefeated at 12–0. The Tigers defeated fourth-ranked LSU and fifth-ranked Georgia during the course of the season, and were one of five teams to finish the regular season undefeated; the others were Southern California, Oklahoma, Utah, and Boise State, with USC and Oklahoma being selected to play in the Bowl Championship Series national championship game. Auburn, by virtue of its lower ranking in the BCS poll, was left out of the national championship and was selected to play in the Sugar Bowl.
Pre-game media coverage of the game focused on Auburn being left out of the national championship game, a point of controversy for Auburn fans in the weeks leading up to the game. Much was made of that and the success of Auburn running backs Carnell Williams and Ronnie Brown, each of whom was considered among the best at his position. On the Virginia Tech side, senior quarterback Bryan Randall had a record-breaking season. Both teams also had high-ranked defenses, and Tech's appearance in the 2000 Sugar Bowl also was mentioned in the run-up to the game.
The 2005 Sugar Bowl kicked off on January 3, 2005, at 8:00 p.m. EST. Early in the first quarter, the Tigers took a 3–0 lead. Following an interception by the Auburn defense, the Tigers were extended their lead to 6–0. In the second quarter, another field goal resulted in three points for the Tigers. At halftime, Auburn led, 9–0. Auburn opened the second half with its only touchdown drive of the game, giving Auburn a 16–0 lead, which it held into the fourth quarter. In that quarter, Tech scored its first touchdown of the game but did not convert the two-point try, making the score 16–6. Late in the quarter, Tech quarterback Bryan Randall cut Auburn's lead to 16–13 on an 80-yard pass that resulted in another touchdown. With almost no time remaining in the game, Virginia Tech attempted an onside kick to have another chance on offense. When Auburn recovered the kick, the Tigers ran out the clock and secured the win. In recognition of his game-winning performance, Auburn quarterback Jason Campbell was named the game's most valuable player.
Despite Auburn's victory and undefeated season, they were not named national champions. That honor went to the University of Southern California, which defeated Oklahoma in the 2005 national championship game, 55–19. Three voters in the final Associated Press poll of the season voted Auburn the number one team in the country, but their votes were not enough to deny USC a national championship, as voted by members of the Associated Press and Coaches' polls. Several players from each team were selected in the 2005 NFL Draft and went on to careers in the National Football League.2006 Washington Redskins season
The 2006 Washington Redskins season was the franchise's 75th season in the National Football League, and was the third season for coach under Joe Gibbs since his return to the team in 2004.
The team had posted a 10–6 record and a postseason berth the previous season (up from 6–10 in 2004). In 2006, however, the Redskins posted only five wins and finished last in the division.
The 2006 Redskins set an NFL record for fewest takeaways in a (non-strike) NFL season, with only twelve.2007 Washington Redskins season
The 2007 Washington Redskins season was the franchise's 76th season in the National Football League. The Redskins finished their regular season with a record of 9–7 and a playoff appearance. This was an improvement over the 2006 season when they went 5–11 and finished last in the NFC East.
Over the course of the season, Washington went 5–3 in home games at FedExField, and 4–4 on the road; they lost 6 of their 7 games by one touchdown or less. After losing to the Seattle Seahawks in the wild card round, Coach Joe Gibbs announced his retirement, thus ending his second stint as head coach of the Redskins. During the season, the tragedy of Sean Taylor's death occurred before a game against the Buffalo Bills. For the first defensive play, they fielded 10 men leaving the usual free safety spot empty, honoring Sean Taylor.2008 Washington Redskins season
The 2008 Washington Redskins season was the franchise's 77th season in the National Football League. They failed to improve upon their 9–7 record from 2007 and finished with an 8–8 record despite starting the season 6-2. In addition to their regular games with NFC East rivals, the Redskins played teams from the NFC West and AFC North as per the schedule rotation, and also played intraconference games against the Lions and the Saints based on divisional positions from 2007.2009 Washington Redskins season
The 2009 Washington Redskins season was the franchise's 78th season in the National Football League. They failed to improve upon their 8–8 record from 2008 and finished with a 4–12 record, their worst record since 2003, which resulted in Jim Zorn being fired after two seasons. He would be replaced by 2-time Super Bowl champion coach Mike Shanahan the next season.2010 Oakland Raiders season
The 2010 Oakland Raiders season was the team's 41st season in the National Football League and their 51st overall. It also marked the last full season under the ownership of Al Davis, who died in October 2011. The Raiders had improved from a five-win season, their first since 2002, and achieved their first non-losing season since losing Super Bowl XXXVII on January 26, 2003. However, the team missed the playoffs for the eighth consecutive season. The Raiders picked 8th in the 2010 NFL Draft. There were no blacked-out home games after the early part of the season and the team won all six of their division matches, including a franchise-record 59 points in Denver. The Raiders became the first team in NFL history to go undefeated in their division and still not make the playoffs.
The season was notable not only because the Raiders swept their division, but every victory came against a rival. The Raiders recorded home victories against the Seahawks, their former division foes from 1977 to 2001, and the Rams, whom the Raiders used to have a rivalry with during their time in Los Angeles from 1982 to 1994.Auburn Tigers football statistical leaders
The Auburn Tigers football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the Auburn Tigers football program in various categories, including passing, rushing, receiving, total offense, defensive stats, and kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, Single season and career leaders. The Tigers represent Auburn University in the NCAA's Southeastern Conference.
Although Auburn began competing in intercollegiate football in 1892, the school's official record book considers the "modern era" to have begun in 1947. Records from before this year are often incomplete and inconsistent, and they are generally not included in these lists.
These lists are dominated by more recent players for several reasons:
Since 1947, seasons have increased from 10 games to 11 and then 12 games in length.
The NCAA didn't allow freshmen to play varsity football until 1972 (with the exception of the World War II years), allowing players to have four-year careers.
Bowl games only began counting toward Single season and career statistics in 2002. The Tigers have played in 14 bowl games since this decision.
The Tigers have had two seasons, 2010 and 2013, in which the Tigers run a high-octane offense that racked up 6,989 and 7,018 offensive yards, respectively. In fact, eight of the Tigers' ten seasons with the highest offensive output have come since 2000 under head coaches Tommy Tuberville, Gene Chizik, and Gus Malzahn.These lists are updated through the end of the 2017 season.Glasgow pub bombings
The Glasgow pub bombings were two bomb attacks in Glasgow, Scotland, carried out by the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) on 17 February 1979. The UVF bombed two pubs frequented by Catholics: the Old Barns in Calton and, 15 minutes later, the Clelland Bar in Gorbals. Five people were injured, all at the Clelland Bar. The pubs were targeted because they were allegedly used for fundraising for Irish republicans in Northern Ireland. The attack sparked fears that sectarian terrorism would erupt in Scotland as a spillover of the Troubles. Experts believe a Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA) veto on bombing operations in Scotland prevented the situation from escalating.The attacks were co-ordinated by William "Big Bill" Campbell, the UVF's top commander in Scotland, who was possibly involved with the 1971 McGurk's Bar bombing in Belfast which killed 15 people according to a book published in 2012. A police investigation led to Campbell, along with eight other UVF members (which included Angus McKenna), to be sentenced at Glasgow High Court in June 1979 and jailed. Campbell received a 16-year sentence for the pub bombings as well as criminal conspiracy related to firearms and explosives. The investigation wiped out the UVF's Scotland cell. In 1995 his nephew Jason Campbell slashed the throat of a 16-year-old Celtic F.C. supporter in Bridgeton, Glasgow. He was jailed until released on parole in 2011. William Campbell died of natural causes in 1997 and received a funeral in his native Bridgeton, a loyalist stronghold, with thousands in attendance.Jason Campbell (cricketer)
