While watching the embarrassment that was this year’s BCS Championship Game, it seemed obvious to anyone in attendance that at some point LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson would have to get pulled. He was just SOOOOO BAD. Like worse than anyone who has ever quarterbacked the Bears bad.

Yet somewhat surprisingly, he was behind center to start the second half despite not crossing the 50. OK. Give him another shot, I guess.

When he threw a telegraphed interception right into the lap of an oncoming linebacker early in the third quarter, well surely that was it. Backup Jarrett Lee even put his helmet on, because at this point only a complete dipsh*t would keep Jefferson in the game.

And so Les Miles did.

It seemed idiotic at the time, so much so that former Saints quarterback and current talk show host Bobby Hebert — not to mention the father of LSU offensive lineman T-Bob Hebert — went off on Miles in the postgame press conference until the moderator interrupted to ask “Do you have a question?”

It looks even stupider tonight.

Lee saw first-half action in the Chargers preseason win over the Packers Thursday night, throwing for 235 yards and a touchdown. So somehow a guy who wasn’t even good enough to play one snap against Alabama when his team couldn’t cross midfield is good enough to throw a touchdown against the Packers.

Good move, Les.
