Coach Tom Cable will announce his week three starting quarterback on Wednesday. When asked if the call was his alone, Cable said, “It has to be.” Cable stressed the fact that quarterback depth is better than it’s been for some time on the Raiders and that regardless of which quarterback is chosen, the other could still be needed down the road.
Bruce Gradkowski looked good in the second half for the Raiders, and seems to have a much better grasp of the west coast offense, which the Raiders run, and it’s the same offense that Jason Campbell has struggled with.
Campbell was 8-for-15 for 87 yards with a pick, while Gradkowski was 11-for-22 for 162 yards with a TD and pick. The Raiders scored 13 points in the second half to go on for the 16-14 win over the Rams.
