The Oakland Raiders and Chicago Bears are set to do battle Saturday night at Soldier Field in Chicago. Both teams are looking to improve on disappointing seasons last year. The silver and black made a significant upgrade at quarterback, adding Jason Campbell from Washington. Da Bears added defensive superstar Julius Peppers from Carolina, underrated running back Chester Taylor from Minnesota, and look forward to a healthy Brian Urlacher. 2010 promises to be a better season for both clubs.

John Brantley Florida Gators
New Florida Gators Starting Quarterback John Brantley
The best part of college football is that no team can ever be complacent. No matter how good a player is or how well he fits with a team and a system he can’t play for more than four years.

Other times, though, a new guy steps in and is able to maintain the level of play or even improve it. Here’s a look at four teams which are facing big quarterback changes this year that have a good chance of coming through it just fine:
