Here are the results of two recent newspaper polls:
•In Pittsburgh, 88% of the 640 readers polled by the Post-Gazette said they would name Scott Campbell the Steelers' starting quarterback for the Nov. 3 game against Cleveland. Only 9.5% chose David Woodley, who did start and led the Steelers to a 10-9 win. Says Woodley, "When people say they don't want you to play, you can't worry. And when they tell you that they do want you to play, you have to be careful about that, too. You have to play within yourself."
•Tom Benson, the Saints' rookie owner, said last month he wanted to change the team's colors—from black, gold and white to blue, gold and white. (One reason: Benson's wife thinks he looks good in blue.) So The Times-Picayune/The States-Item polled 1,100 readers and found 55% were against a change. One comment: "Don't do it. I'd have to repaint my van."
