We hear Jason Campbell is having a solid training camp, but team observers say comparing him to Jim Plunkett was a huge stretch by Raiders owner Al Davis, who made the remark in a recent, and rare, radio interview. Campbell has the work ethic and professional approach that JaMarcus Russell lacked, and it's clear that his teammates have respect for him, which is a marked departure from how the team felt about Russell. There is no question about Campbell's intangibles. There is skepticism, however, when it comes to his ability to take the offense to a level where it can compete for a postseason spot. Some say head coach Tom Cable did Campbell a favor by naming him the starting quarterback before training camp opened, rather than giving Bruce Gradkowski, who sparked the offense last season, a chance to compete for the job. After a rocky tenure with the Redskins, Campbell has been fully embraced by his new team.
