Bruce Gradkowski had a bad day.
Doesn't that happen a lot with quarterbacks that aren't consistent?
Bruce Gradkowski has never been consistent throughout his whole career so this isn't just one bad game. His mobility makes him a better for the Raiders at this time but they should probably fix that offensive line.
This way the Raiders can see what Jason Campbell can do.
Gradkowski isn't even consistent for four quarters of a game. Even in his best moments with the Raiders he came on in the fourth quarter after a not so good three quarters.
They call him a spark for a reason.
Sparks don't last long so Raider fans can forget about him being the answer. He did do some clutch work but a good quarterback kills the Cardinals like Matt Ryan did the week before.
He shouldn't have need to do clutch work.
Gradkowski missed an open Zach Miller in the end zone twice.
One of them should have been intercepted.
On a crucial third down, he missed Miller for a first down, and that too was dropped by the defender.
His completion percentage on Sunday was only 50 percent and that's not very accurate. Seventy of his 255 yards came mostly running after the catch, and he did have a poorly thrown interception.
Either the Raiders address the offensive line to see what Campbell can do or they do something about the quarterback position.
Good teams aren't in close game with this year's Cardinals. (See the Falcons last week)
