Tom Cable says Jason Campbell will "probably" start in 13 days when the Raiders travel to face the daunting Pittsburgh Steeler defense.

After Bruce Gradkowski was deemed the savior after the Rams game, Campbell has come on in relief of Gradkowski to win three straight.

Oddly, very few fans seem to be on the fence on this one.

Gradkowski has a very loyal fan base. How can you blame Raider fans? He's exciting to watch, he's fearless and despite having an average arm, and he attacks down field extremely well.

He has a much quicker release than Campbell and is more mobile. Gradkowski's style of play leads to more turnovers than Campbell, primarily because he attacks at every opportunity and often when the play isn't there.

Campbell has a huge arm and has shown better accuracy down field than at any time in his career.

He is not an elusive quarterback, but can scramble for yards once he gets his legs churning. He gets in trouble with his windup at times, but somehow doesn't throw alot of interceptions.

Neither quarterback is particularly accurate although Gradkowski has proven to be more accurate with underneath passes.

In the Chiefs game, Campbell did very little to earn the job until the 4th quarter. He benefited from the Chiefs secondary having the dropping one interception and a determined Jacoby Ford ripping the ball from cornerback Brandon Flowers.

So who's your pick? Campbell or Gradkowski?

Maybe there's not a wrong choice.
