QB switch was Jackson’s idea

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010 at 11:12 am in Oakland Raiders.

Rather than produce a quarterback to talk with the media Wednesday, the Raiders Hue Jackson bat leadoff with reporters, who learned that it was the offensive coordinator who suggested switching to Bruce Gradkowski in a 16-14 win over the Rams.

Jackson said coach Tom Cable would likely name the starter when the head coach met the media later that afternoon.

Jackson said owner Al Davis gives him “great latitude” with the offense and said it was his determination that he didn’t see enough energy in the first half and went to Cable with the change.

More to come later from Jackson and the media availability period . . .

    change your team name from Financial Guru to Sassy Dell. that might change your luck

    I’d hate for you to have to wait until you play against my team to get your first win!

    Dell, I seriously can not comment on scoring issues in your league. I havent paid that close attention to it. I thought the scoring for my players looked pretty copasetic though.

    My team is pretty pathetic right now, they suck!!

    I’m in my son’s FFL, and decided to take all Raider players. Haven’t scored 50 points yet. I sense a breakthrough soon.

    The Browns are definitely interested. The Bills, Cardinals, and Raiders might be too.

    ***

    we should be interested in Kevin Kolb …

    we can offer Jason Campbell, Robert Gallery and Richard Seymour in exchange!

    Well, we are down to our last option now. Better start making plans for the next guy. Kind of like what I’ve seen of Kolb myself. Can’t believe it’s come to this.

    kolb is overrated, if we are talking about the next qb the answer is in the draft. His name is Jarrod Johnson. Do yourself a favor before ripping this post, and watch texas a&m play. Johnson is 6 foot 6, 235lbs of pure muscle. He throws the ball a mile and runs like the wind. He doesnt turn the ball over. Johnson also is a 3 year starter plays a pro offense under former nfl head coach and pass happy o-coordinator Mike Sherman. We can pick him up in round 3 and use our first picks on the o-line.
