Jason Campbell is tall and mobile and has a cannon-arm. But most importantly, he's disciplined, hard working, and smart—and well suited to the Raiders’ between-the-tackle running and bombs-away passing style of offense.
Under the tutelage of offensive coordinator Hue Jackson, Campbell will bring credibility back to a passing game that, at times last year, looked like a circus sideshow—led by an overweight clown with purple lips, who regularly used his notepad in team meetings for a pillow. Those days are over, and so is JaMarcus Russell as the starting quarterback for the Raiders.
If Campbell reignites the passing game, which he should, he will need more production from his receiving corp than what was displayed on the field last year, when No. 1 pick Darrius Heyward-Bey dropped six balls and caught nine.
