Who bears more culpability for the DeSean Jackson situation? Is it the mercurial receiver, or the Eagles? Is it Jackson, who hasn't played up to snuff and admitted Monday that his unresolved contract status is affecting his happiness? Or is it the Eagles, who handed out larger contracts to free agents who aren't anywhere near as important to their team? Is it Jackson, who became tardy and then missed a meeting that led to his benching on Sunday? Or is it the Eagles, who could have found a way to extend Jackson if they wanted to avoid a dip in his production?

Ray Graham rushed for 226 yards and two touchdowns and host Pittsburgh dominated No. 16 South Florida, 44-17, on Thursday night. Graham's 13-yard touchdown gave Pitt (3-2, 1-0 Big East) the lead for good late in the first half and his 8-yard sprint up the middle early in the fourth quarter sealed it as the Panthers broke a five-game losing streak against ranked opponents. Pitt kept the Bulls' BJ Daniels under wraps all night. One of the nation's top dual-threat quarterbacks couldn't get it going with his arm or legs.

IN THE PHILLIES' year of the non-save, it is nice that No. 1 draft pick Joe Save ry has formally joined this pitcher-starved organization. If the 6-3 Rice lefthander (and the Owls' best hitter, as well) is the real deal, he could be in the rotation as early as 2009. That assumes he will overmatch the short-season, Class A New York-Penn League, where he will audition with the Williamsport Crosscutters, get bumped up to Lakewood, or even to Clearwater, then begin next season in Clearwater or Reading.
