Raiders head coach Tom Cable is not ready to jump on the Monday bandwagon of announcing a QB change, but he said he has a good idea of who will start in Week Three.

Cable pulled Jason Campbell after the first half Sunday. Backup Bruce Gradkowski came in and led the Raiders to a 16-14 comeback victory.

The Raiders traded for Campbell in the offseason after cutting ties with former No. 1 pick JaMarcus Russell. Cable said he will consult with his assistants before making his final decision for this week's game against the Cardinals.  

The way we see it

Our guess is that Cable is leaning toward starting Gradkowski. It could hurt morale to go back to Campbell after Gradkowski led the team to a much-needed win, but there is speculation that Al Davis is still firmly in Campbell's corner.
