Oakland Raiders Quarterback Jason Campbell Is Ready


Sorry, I guess I've watched Deion Sanders on NFL Network one time too many. But I can't help but believe that Jason Campbell is ready to lead his Oakland Raiders in 2011.

There has been lots of talk about Campbell in Raider Nation lately.

Can he put up big numbers, become an elite quarterback or make the Pro Bowl? 

He doesn't have to do all that!

The Pro Bowl has two tickets waiting for Tom Brady and Peyton Manning every year anyway. Oakland Raider owner Al Davis has called Campbell the second coming of Jim Plunkett.

Before you shoot that down, Plunkett wasn't one of the sexy quarterbacks of the '80s but he did win two Super Bowls. So all Campbell needs to do is lead the Raiders to the playoffs in 2011, and I believe he can.

Like Plunkett was, Campbell is supremely talented with good work ethic but didn't have the supporting cast early in his career. But his supporting cast and journey now has him ready to lead the Raiders to the playoffs.
