Jason Campbell gets benched

Nice job by Tom Cable. He really gave Campbell a vote of confidence Sunday by benching him in favor of Bruce Gradkowski.

Campbell was not having a good game and he wasn’t spectacular in week 1 or anything, but Campbell is a solid quarterback. He put up solid numbers in Washington.

It’s not like Gradkowski blew the doors off when he came in, either. He went 11/22 with 1 TD and 1 INT. If Cable thinks Gradkowski is the guy for them, fine. Go with him. Rotating quarterbacks in favor of who is “hot” just leads to more inconsistency.

Frankly, I don’t know how anyone can be effective throwing the ball in Oakland. They have a very weak receiving core. Oakland is a black hole.

The Raiders won in the end, but Campbell is a better quarterback than his numbers suggest so far. Cable needs to give his vote of confidence to Campbell.

  1. Yeah Im not a fan of that call either. Neither QB is great but Ill take Campbell out of the two. I can’t stand the QB situation in Tennessee either. The guy who starts the season seems to do horrible and get replaced by the backup who does great. Ill admit that Collins was a little more effective than Young against the Ravens, but Collins is a little more geared to a Ravens D. And he wasn’t that much more effective. Young had some problems with his O-line and that contributed to a couple of turnovers. Im not a fan of either though when it comes down to it.

  2. But yeah, I know what you mean. The QB situation in Tennessee is annoying, too. When Young falters, Fisher goes with Collins. I know they want to win the game, but the Titans still didn’t score until the last minute of that game. They weren’t going to do anything against that Steelers defense. Especially with how ineffective their running game was. It was a lost cause. Tom Brady couldn’t have saved the Titans this week.
