The Oakland Raiders went into the season with a QB that had alot to prove. Not just to himself but the coaches, owner, and the fans. That he has what it takes to lead this team. 10 games 2 TD's and 9 picks later he found himself on the bench. (where he needs to be)

The Raiders were left with  Bruce Gradkowski a backup QB at best. The heart and passion to win, but doesn't seem to have the talent to win at the NFL level.

Now that he has three games under his belt for the Raiders. Leading them on 2 game winning drives. He may not be the best answer, but he is the best answer for this team. You show me a QB that works and studies hard, raises the level of his teammates, and his teammates believe will get them where they need to be. Then I will show you a QB that i want to lead my team (THE RAIDERS).

With Gradkowski leading this team in 2010 this team can turn it around. No more bottom of the AFC West, No more bottom of the AFC. As a Raider fan I know we will never be the loved by the media like the Colts, Pats, Chargers, or the Steelers. Thats ok with me, all I need as a Raiders fan is a chance. That is what Bruce Gradowski is, a chance to win and I for one will take that over a rocket arm any day of the week.
