08:03 AM ET 11.09 | It is always a coach's prerogative to change his mind. Jason Campbell is going to remain the Raiders starting quarterback for the foreseeable future, perhaps even beyond the time when Bruce Gradkowski returns from a right shoulder sprain, coach Tom Cable said Monday. This statement comes a week or so after Cable said Gradkowski was the "clear-cut" starter and that there was "no issue" regarding that situation. "I really haven't wavered, but I do have a belief in me about when you're dealing it and you got the hot hand, and things are going in the right direction for your football team, why would you make a change?" Cable said.

Sounds to me like Tom is going to ride the hot hand.

Good...

Whatever he's doing, it's working right now. The team is working hard and believing. They don't have the talent, but they're winning on emotion and hard work. Sure, they're playing over their heads, but so what?

You just totally described the absolute opposite of the Cowboys.

Who would have ever thought the word 'hot hand' be used to describe the Raider's QB situation???

Especially since the only time Jamarcus had a hot hand was when he was holding an overstuffed bean burrito.

Even a blind cat stumbles across a dead rat once in a while.

Yeah, that thought crossed my mind.


As for the burrito, LOL!

Word, only difference is Cable will break the jaw of anyone who disagrees.

I still have to say... It's good for the entire NFL when the Raiders win games.

Are you describing when Al drafted JaMarcus?

Well, if the cat is the Raiders and the dead rats are the rest of the AFC West, you've got a recipe for a division win.

Raiders-Schmaders. They will return to form as long as Campbell is throwing the ball...

One page of comments in the books, and not a single 'crazy Al' reference. It is indeed a great day for Raiders' fans!
