USC's Garrett Green moves to #2 on the QB depth chart

This is an interesting development..

A week ago, Garrett Green was USC's fourth-string quarterback. But Monday, he was named the backup for the Oregon State game.

Coach Pete Carroll said Green would play if Mark Sanchez gets injured against the Beavers.

"Right now, Garrett is going in first," Carroll said. "It's clear he was ahead. He's more in command. That's the way we feel about it at this time."

I am really not sure what to make of this. How does the 4th string QB jump to the #2 spot in a week? Is he really that good or are Mustain and Corp really struggling with the playbook. I have complete faith in how the coaching staff handles these things but it is a bit disconcerting that if Sanchez were to go down there is a bit of musical chairs going on in regards to who is the back-up.

This is definitely a head scratcher but if Green is the most prepared then so be it, he has my full support.

Congrats Garrett!
