New Raiders Coach Says Campbell the Teams Starting QB In 2011

Raiders head coach Hue Jackson said recently that “there’s no question” Jason Campbell is the team’s starting quarterback. It was a signal to QB Bruce Gradkowski, who started four games for Oakland last season, that if he wants a chance to earn a starting job, he’ll have to look elsewhere when his contract expires this offseason. Gradkowski apparently has not ruled out staying put, however.

Gradkowski told Pro Football Weekly earlier this week that he knows he’s an NFL starter, but he still would like to stay in Oakland. “I’d love to stay out here,” Gradkowski said. “I think the Raiders want me back, as well. Hopefully it makes sense for everyone and it works out. Whatever my part is, I just want to be a Raider and help this team win and go from there.”

    I think gradkowski knows he has some fan support and honestly, he probably thinks he can poilitic his way into the starting line up. I don’t trust him and I see him as a problem to the production of jason campbell. the raiders need to unload this toxic personality and find a player to back up campbell that the fans feel neutral about. he needs to go in a hurry.

    I liked Gradkowski for his contribution over the last few years but I agree it’s time to part ways with him because of being too injury prone. Hue Jackson is trying to restore this team to the reputation that he raiders of old had. Pretty soon teams will be afraid to step on the field with us. GO Raiders!!
