If you don’t think Al Davis has a hand — a big hand — in who quarterbacks the Oakland Raiders, then you’re obviously not a Raiders fan:
If Gradkowski is starting, you know Cable wouldn’t be doing it unless ... Davis might be wanting him to? If Al didn’t want Grad starting, you bet that he’d make sure it didn’t happen. Could Al finally be seeing that Russell isn’t the future of this team? It’s clear from the post-game interview with Gradkowski that he already is a better leader and is definitely a better QB.
Gradkowski is 3-9 as a starter in his career, but at this point the Raiders will take their chances.
