Despite replacing Jason Campbell with Bruce Gradkowski in Sunday's 35-3 loss to the Steelers, Raiders head coach Tom Cable said Campbell will remain the team's starting quarterback.

Cable told reporters after the game that he had seen "enough" when he made the change in the third quarter.

Campbell, who had played well during the Raiders' recent surge, was just 7-of-19 for 70 yards and an interception. He also fumbled twice. Gradkowski completed 13-of-24 passes for 98 yards and also was picked off once.

The way we see it

The Raiders have won games thanks to their defense and stellar rushing attack this season. During their three-game winning streak, Campbell did throw the ball well, tossing five TDs and just one INT, but Sunday brought him back to earth. The Raiders still have a chance to take the wide-open AFC West. Look at this loss as a case where the Steelers just presented a tough matchup for them.
