Women who read the Twilight series are split between Team Edward and Team Jacob.

Well now the Raider Nation is having a similar debate. Who should start at quarterback?

Jason Campbell was traded to Oakland and was proclaimed the starter. Two games into the season he was benched for Bruce Gradkowski.

Bruce Gradkowski has yet to win a game he has started this year. Jason Campbell has won three in a row.

The Raiders' next opponent will not be easy and the Raiders can't afford to make the wrong decision. Oakland will make the trip to Pittsburgh after the bye week.

Who can forget the performance that Gradkowski had against his hometown team? He showed his fire, heart and his desire to win.

Hue Jackson said the decision to pull Campbell was his because he wasn't performing. It will be hard to pull him again after three wins in a row.

Two of those wins came against division foes/leaders with winning records and included amazing offensive performances.

Both players are very different and possess different abilities. They both want to be the starter. I think we should stay with the hot hand. If it isn't broke, then don't fix it.

The last thing we want is a divided locker room. Whoever doesn't start must be respectful of the starter. No need to tell the media you should be starting.

Coach Cable has said that Gradkowski is the starter. If you were the coach of the Raiders who would you start?

State your case Raider Nation. Who do you think should start? Are you Team Jason or Team Bruce?
