I must admit that I’ve been pretty tough on the Oakland Raiders and Al Davis the last two years. I come by this honestly as my favorite team plays in a different conference so I have no bias here. Bu the dumb things that have been going on in Oakland deserved some comment. Now, in fairness I see signs of hope. The great Jamarcus Russell debate is over and good riddance. Just shedding that baggage is a good sign that the Oakland Raiders are headed in the right direction.
Jason Campbell has had a spotty career, bouncing from coorinator to coordinator every year and always having the spotlight on him. Landing in Oakland, where they’ll be happy with consistent quarterback play, and don’t need great quarterback play, should be good for him. Who knows? give him a season or two in the same system and Jason Campbell could become an upper level NFL quarterback.
