Jason Campbell is an Oakland Raider

The Washington Redskins have traded quarterback Jason Campbell to the Oakland Raiders.

It’s been expected that Campbell would be traded since the Redskins acquired Donovan McNabb, and trade talk between the Redskins and Raiders heated up today. Rick Maese of the Washington Post was the first to report that the trade is complete.

“I talked to [Raiders owner] Al Davis, and he said he wants me there,” Campbell told Jason Reid of the Washington Post. “That means a lot to me. I’m ready to get to work.”

UPDATE: Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Raiders sent a 2012 fourth-round pick to the Redskins to acquire Campbell.

Campbell, who signed his tender as a restricted free agent with the Redskins, is believed to have agreed to a new deal with the Raiders that will pay him $3.14 million in salary and a $100,000 workout bonus this year, and $4.5 million in 2011.

In Oakland, Campbell has to be considered the favorite to win the starting job over JaMarcus Russell, Kyle Boller, Bruce Gradkowski and Charlie Frye, at least two of whom will be gone before the season starts.

    Poor Jason Campbell. The guy had a future in the league. Now he will only rot in Oakland.

    best draft in years!

    Poor bastard. Out of the frying pan and into the fire.

  4. blacktoothgrin says: Apr 24, 2010 1:10 PM

    I live in DC and I’m a Raiders fan, Campbell is a pretty good QB who had a crappy line and 3-4 different systems to learn. By all accounts he is a good guy and hard worker. Campbell starts and , Bruce, and Frye are backups. Can I get a na na na na, na na na na, say hey hey good bye Jamarcus

  5. TylerDurden says: Apr 24, 2010 1:12 PM

    Say goodbye, Jamarcus…..

    ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS PLAYOFFS!!!!!!

  7. SkinsFanInNebraska says: Apr 24, 2010 1:13 PM

    Well, I’m happy for Jason to be getting a fresh start. I’m just sorry for him that it’s a franchise in total disarray.

  8. BigBear123 says: Apr 24, 2010 1:13 PM

    Russell must be getting cut soon.
    This makes Raiders contenders in the weakest division in the NFL.

  9. Raider B says: Apr 24, 2010 1:14 PM

    RAAAAAAIDERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRS!!!!!!! Raiders are back! Fuk all the Haters!

  10. dlr4skins says: Apr 24, 2010 1:15 PM

    Now he can hold the ball too long for the Raiders.

  11. raiderrob21 says: Apr 24, 2010 1:15 PM

    Its been an exciting weekend to be a RAIDER fan! And this just tops it off! Whoever is running the draft this year deserves a BIG RAISE! FINALLY we got our shit together in OAKLAND! Now go get
    Alan Faneca Big Al!!!!!!!

  12. War_Paint says: Apr 24, 2010 1:15 PM

    Just what the Ders need, another dumb QB.

  13. Bruce Irick says: Apr 24, 2010 1:16 PM

    I am glad for him. I hope he does very well.

  14. AndyReidIsABadCoach says: Apr 24, 2010 1:17 PM

    We’ll never know if he was actually a decent QB as he is now in the NFL graveyard.

  15. king of chico says: Apr 24, 2010 1:17 PM

    He’s a good QB who never had time to learn a system longer than 2 years and his numbers went up each year. 6 different systems since college. All you raider haters can suck it now because this draft proves that Lord Davis is alive and knows what he is doing in his white jumpsuit. It looks like they are trying to run hard get play action going and play good D, and that is how you win in the NFL. I cant wait!

  16. dogma1 says: Apr 24, 2010 1:18 PM

    Steal for the Raiders, this team is not that bad.

  17. Igottz5onit says: Apr 24, 2010 1:19 PM

    What a winning qb roster they have in oaktown…

  18. sricko says: Apr 24, 2010 1:21 PM

    Right big bald… because the Redskins had a lot going for them last year and Campbell’s future in DC was looking good this year too….
    The raiders offense can actually move when a real qb is in there. I saw it with my own eyes… I’ll be interested to see how he does.

  19. rjgreen3 says: Apr 24, 2010 1:22 PM

    bad trade for the skins, good for the raiders

  20. c hox says: Apr 24, 2010 1:23 PM

    YA RIGHT…its going to be the raiders and the seahawks in the superbowl this year guise

  21. bigstorm says: Apr 24, 2010 1:24 PM

    BigBald….
    Totally agree…the only worse move would have been to the other QB meat grinder which is Cleveland.
    If Cleveland is Hell than OAK is purgatory.
    I hope that Jason invests his paycheques wisely becasue he will be out of football in three years with this move.

  22. Broncoman says: Apr 24, 2010 1:26 PM

    Mike Shanahan dealing with Al Davis?

  23. jones0999 says: Apr 24, 2010 1:26 PM

    about time we got a decent quarterback. now all we need is a line to protect him, if we dont get that we wont last a season

  24. Brian Sackpo says: Apr 24, 2010 1:27 PM

    He should have a pro bowl year in Oakland so not to worry. I pro bowl of soup…

  25. ninevel says: Apr 24, 2010 1:28 PM

    I wanted the Raiders to pick Mccoy and I was disappointed that I didn’t, but hearing the news that they landed Jason Campbell — I think it’s awesome. Than again, anybody is better than Russell.

  26. GoCaps8 says: Apr 24, 2010 1:28 PM

    2012? That’s only a few months before the apocalypse. We won’t even get a full season out of that 4th round pick.

  27. raiders177 says: Apr 24, 2010 1:28 PM

    Hey Russell. GTFO

  28. grimsleeper78 says: Apr 24, 2010 1:28 PM

    for a 4th Round pick in 2012?!? WTF??

  29. BleedB&G says: Apr 24, 2010 1:29 PM

    Just one more example of how being a Washington Redskin can be a career-killer.
    He spends the first part of his career here taking the blame for the obvious deficiencies of other parts of the team, dealing with the revolving door of coaches and coordinators…and in SPITE of that, managed to progress every year in stats and finish in the top half of QB’s in the leage.
    And now he is getting shipped to Oakland?
    I feel awful for him. He really has more talent than he’s being given the opportunity to show. What wasted potential.

  30. Sociofan says: Apr 24, 2010 1:29 PM

    Jason, some of us out here are big fans of you personally and so I wish you all the best in Oakland and hope that you have the chance to become a Pro Bowl QB. I think Shanny should have worked with you to develop that instead of running outside the organization. So I’ll add this one on to the “mistake list” that the club has made so far under Shanahan/Allen. Good luck.

  31. MurderCapital#1 says: Apr 24, 2010 1:29 PM

    real weak.

  32. INVAIDUH says: Apr 24, 2010 1:30 PM

    Mike Shanahan dealing with Al Davis?
    ______________________________________
    They did it a couple of years back with Gerard Warren.
    Even if this doesn’t work out, they gave up a 2012 4th rounder, not a big deal.

  34. jkr says: Apr 24, 2010 1:34 PM

    Great pick up the raiders there’s alot to be said for accuracy and with Campbell completing at least %60 of his passes they should be much improved.Time to scrap the Jamarcus project for now put him on the bench and he can back up Campbell for 3-4 years he’s only 25.He has all the physical tools so if he can ever get it through his head that he has to work hard he might be alright.The other problem for the raiders is the run game they have to give one of there backs at least 20-25 carries a game Bush and Mcfadden are both talented but its hard for either of them to establish any rythm especially D Mcfadden with 8 carries per game.Get it takin care of so that you will cease to continue being the laughing stock of the league!

  35. king of chico says: Apr 24, 2010 1:34 PM

    now all we need is to sign fanaca who just got released today

  36. F_DALLAS says: Apr 24, 2010 1:35 PM

    congrats to JC and Raiders… But raider fans, you guys have more need than just a less than average QB.

  37. Wiredawg says: Apr 24, 2010 1:35 PM

    Al Davis came out on top of this one……did I hear this correctly on the draft….a 4th round pick in 2012 for Campbell?

  38. TFBuckFutter says: Apr 24, 2010 1:35 PM

    Aaaahahahhaahaha.
    Good lord the Raiders are collecting some really really awful QBs.
    What’s the matter, they couldn’t pry Byron Leftwich from the Steelers?

  39. AASUN says: Apr 24, 2010 1:35 PM

    I Love this trade. I think he is a good QB and he will definitely help the Raiders.
    Also would like to add…all those of you who talk crap about the Raiders….YOU SUCK!!!

  42. Raiders757 says: Apr 24, 2010 1:38 PM

    You know, the lame negative comments from the peanut gallery are getting really old. Some of you chumps need to get a new hobby.
    This is a good move for both Campbell and the Raiders. There is a light at the end of this long dark tunnel for Oakland, so it’s about time you guys find a new team to bag on for a change. Despite seven years of gloom, Raider fans can still hold their head up higher than most, so just STFU already.

  43. Slick1960 says: Apr 24, 2010 1:39 PM

    I love all the hate from the loser team supporters…….Eagles fans calling the Raiders a graveyard? Do us a favor, post once you’re franchise wins one superbowl. How many seasons in pro football for filly? 105? The ultimate losers…….go beat up Santa Claus or a mafia chieftan
    deadskin fans talking snack about the Raiders? Remember this? 38-9? Wait until you’ve had Shanahan for three seasons……..hahahahaha……
    If you’re NOT winning the SB your a wannabe.
    Great draft for the Raiders, great trades

  44. MagicMan407 says: Apr 24, 2010 1:39 PM

    Raiders got a QB who will help them win they have a decent defense and now they got Campbell for really nothing. A steal for a QB who doesnt throw more picks than TDs and passes for over 3000 yards with no line. He is better than any of the Qbs on the Raiders roster. A top 15 NFL QB for a 4th pick in 2012 thats a steal.

  45. Jeff says: Apr 24, 2010 1:41 PM

    Mr. Smith,
    You forgot that when you talk about Jason Campbell that it is mandatory that you mention that he’s had 2 billion different offensive coordinators.
    Always remember to make the excuse for the black quarterback.

  46. GoCaps8 says: Apr 24, 2010 1:41 PM

    Damn just when he thinks he’s going to be on a team that turned it around this offseason he gies back to a sorry team sorry owner and the worst franchise in the NFL.. Sad sad day for Campbell..

  48. RaiderNation says: Apr 24, 2010 1:45 PM

    To ALL Raider Haters : Shut up and go climb back on your mom. You may have to wait in line though.

  49. snnyjcbs says: Apr 24, 2010 1:48 PM

    I have to laugh at after 7 years of being down just how many haters there still are out there regarding the Raiders. To see the number of other Fans that rush to comment on everything and anything Raider is a badge of honor.
    It has to be the small child complex. You know where they grow up being thumped so they have a defect branded on the brain until death. Well get ready folks, the Raiders may have been down for a few years but they will soon be doing what has so many of you clowns still having Raiders on the brain.
    And just a little heads up, Houston drafted in round two was not drafted as a DT for the Raiders. He was drafted to play Left End, the Raiders have a suprise coming for the DT that they need and Cable has stated that Raider Fans will love it.
    It is always better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not, when in doubt knock them out.

    #1.Jason Campbell will be learning yet another new offensive scheme didn’t work well for him before.
    #2.Jason Campbell will be throwing to who D.H.B dude couldn’t catch a cold, but don’t worry Jacoby Ford will catch those passes right give me a break.

  51. Antonio T Pangelinan says: Apr 24, 2010 1:53 PM

    Bye bye JaMarcus Russell, and make room for Jason Campbell. Looks like Raider Nation is looking up. It’s about time we had a quarterback that we can really count on when the chips are down. We are going to wins games this year!

  52. blacktoothgrin says: Apr 24, 2010 1:55 PM

    I may be crazy, but I say get TO so Campbell has a true #1 receiver. It’s been said, but pick up Fanaca now.

  53. Jack Acid says: Apr 24, 2010 1:56 PM

    Solid move by Oakland. Glad they aren’t clinging to Russell, who is going to be out of the league shortly.

  54. Willy says: Apr 24, 2010 1:56 PM

    maybe Faneca(cut by jets) and Jamarcus can trade places?

  55. DCSniksder says: Apr 24, 2010 1:58 PM

    Jason has FINALLY made it out of purgatory…. unfortunately for him, he hasn’t ascended into football heaven.

  56. sjraider says: Apr 24, 2010 1:58 PM

    JaMarcus — gain some more weight and join the O-Line! Jason Campbell welcome to the RAIDER NATION!

  57. Tikkanen says: Apr 24, 2010 2:04 PM

    Getting Jason Campbell for a fourth rounder in 2011 is a pretty good deal to get a decent young QB who steps in as an immediate upgrade over anybody there in Oakland. Goodbye JaMarcus Russell!

  58. RaiderClay says: Apr 24, 2010 2:04 PM

    i love that the 4-12 redskin fans are calling oakland the nfl graveyard… believe the nations capital drafted before oakland did.
    this deal was a win for oakland and for donovan. when donovan goes down with an injury in week 2 – you’ll realize just how bad this decision was.

  59. StevieMo says: Apr 24, 2010 2:04 PM

    I’m not a big Raiders fan but many of you are talking about how bad this team is. Simply not true.
    They beat Pittsburgh, Cincy and Philly last year, have upgraded the defense substantially with McClain, Houston and Wimbley and have helped themselves considerably on the o-line.
    Their top 3 draft picks are all high-character work-ethic guys, team leader types. The locker room environment is going to be greatly enhanced.
    Along with Seymour and Asomugha and some very good young safeties (including my sleeper – Mike Mitchell), the defense will be substantially upgraded this year.
    And Jason Campbell is head and shoulders better than JaFarkus.
    Easily 8-8 this year, with even better things ahead.

  60. rangersleadtheway says: Apr 24, 2010 2:11 PM

    People who dump on the raiders dont know shit.. despite having 7 losing seasons the Raiders are the FOURTH WINNINGEST franchise in NFL history.. so unless youre a fan of the Cowboys, Dolphins, or Bears.. STFU because your team is still below them.

  61. WetHog says: Apr 24, 2010 2:11 PM

    As a Skins fan who has seen every game Campbell has played in the Pro’s I find it funny how some are saying once again it was everyone’s fault except Campbell’s that he hasn’t had more success in the Pro’s and that the Skins gave up on him. Oh Campbell had a bad O’line, or Campbell didn’t have good WR’s, or Campbell didn’t have the same coach.
    Dan Marino spent his entire career in Miami and never had much to get him back to the Super Bowl and he was a Hall of Famer. Good QB’s in the NFL make due with what they are dealt and find a way to succeed. Campbell had 5 years to take the next step to pro-bowl level QB. The only thing he did was convince some fans out there to make excuses for him.
    Campbell is a great guy, but an average QB. Great arm, but doesn’t have the accuracy or the balls to use it. You Raiders fans will find that out soon enough. He’s too cautious, not enough gunslinger in him, doesn’t strike me as a Raiders type of QB. Jason Campbell is no Ken Stabler.
    I wish him well because he carried himself with class throughout his Skins career, but I am not sorry to see him go. And Raider Nation don’t expect Campbell to visit the “BlackHole” anytime soon. He’ll be scared shitless of it.

  62. Viper2000 says: Apr 24, 2010 2:12 PM

    As a Skins fan all I have to say is Campbell is a great guy and that I wish him the best.

  63. Drat says: Apr 24, 2010 2:13 PM

    A fourth round pick in 2012? Cripes. Raiders got a deal. Campbell will start and do a solid job on a bad team. Anybody ready for 7-9? That’s the threshhold for a bad team with a competent coach or QB. Martz got a 7-9 with the Lions a couple of years back. I think the Raiders might go 9-7.

  64. The Curse of Bobby Layne Part 2 says: Apr 24, 2010 2:22 PM

    As a lions fan (at least until this draft) I must say that your Crazy Ass owner had a FANTASTIC draft compared to our crazy retard of an owner!
    Good luck Raider Nation!
    I personally think Campbell will be a solid QB for you guys!
    Great draft, Great acquistions……
    While my opinion counts for zero, I would grade your off-season and draft an A++++

  65. DieHardSkinsFan21 says: Apr 24, 2010 2:26 PM

    @Slick1960
    Keep talking trash on the NFC East homey. We lost one super bowl to you guys, but we still have three Lombardi’s out at Redskins park. How many does the black hole have? Easy on the name calling. You all got a solid person in JC, but a below average QB. Joe Gibbs lost his mind when he traded up for him instead of getting a multitude of much better players in that draft. As a Skins fan and going to every home game watching Campbell go through his progression was painful and you will see it in Oakland. When you are getting hit all the time you think you would change your plays to 3 step drops because you are getting killed back there but JC doesn’t have the smarts to be able to think quickly. Like I said great person. Below average QB.

  66. Gray Eagle says: Apr 24, 2010 2:26 PM

    Shanahan’s son had better make an excellent backup QB out of Brennan (or one of the over-the-hill acquisitions), as Donovan might not last the season. Any contenders really need TWO better-than average QBs if they intend to reach the playoffs.

    @Slick1960
    Yeah the Raiders really layed the wood on the Skins that day. No argument from me. Ass kickings happen in the SuperBowl. What was the final scores of Super Bowl II and Super Bowl XXXVII again? At least the Skins only got blown out in one Super Bowl.

    This is EXACTLY why everyone makes fun of your team. There is no jealousy. Your team is completely retarded, and you fans are too retarded to see that that is why everyone LAUGHS AT YOU AND YOUR TEAM.
    Your attitude contributes to it. No one makes fun of the Chiefs. They are also a terrible team. The difference is, THEIR FANS KNOW IT AND DON’T RUN THEIR MOUTHS LIKE THEY ARE ACTUALLY RELEVANT.

    And before that, they were the winningest.
    Now they are 4th.
    Which speaks volumes about what spectacular failures the shitty team has been.

    no retard. It speaks volumes about how GREAT the franchise is.. so your comeback is “theyre shitty because theyre ONLY the 4th winningest team and used to be the winnigest” your team wasnt on that perch.. your team didnt fall from #1, because.. well.. it has no shot of ever being there.

  75. dan says: Apr 24, 2010 3:57 PM

    yep, good bye JaMarcus Russell – you were a huge mistake and will always be a huge mistake. go back to college if they take you and learn how to work in burger king, if they will take you too
    you sucked as a quarterback

  76. raiderg84 says: Apr 24, 2010 4:02 PM

    can we say oakland is back all you haters better watch it now we have a qb cant wont leave our defence out to dry and because of campbell the offence can now complete 3rd and longs and campbell also makes our defence a top ten defence and can raider nation all at once say bye bye russell

  77. dan says: Apr 24, 2010 4:03 PM

    as a Raider fan from their conception there is only 1 thing that they need to change and that is their owner, Al Davis – the Raiders will be back and just as good as they were way back when, you can guarantee that. JaMarcus Russell was a brain fart from big Al – a very expensive one

  78. Savatage says: Apr 24, 2010 4:37 PM

    AGREED…First this guy holds out for MORE money becasue he thinks he is better than anyone then when he does manage to throw the ball he SUCKED ASS.
    Gradowski should stay behind Campbell now. I think with that RAIDER NATION can reclaim dominance once again.
    Fargas should have stayed though. I hope McFadden does get his head out of his ass though.

  79. Dasmol says: Apr 24, 2010 4:41 PM

    Don’t get too excited raider fans, we don’t want your tears of joy ruining your mascara.
    Though it’s an immediate upgrade for your hapless raiders, he’s replacing Russell, so that’s not saying much.
    Either way, they’ll be lucky to finish 3rd in the AFC West.

  80. Oakfan23 says: Apr 24, 2010 4:50 PM

    LOL i love all you haters, especially donkey fans, LOLLLL!! How bout it raider fans, do any of you remember a draft like this?? The guys on NFL network even acknowledged that this was a GREAT draft by the raiders, and Campbell in Oaktown is the icing on the cake. I live in the northeast and have seen redskins games, campbell NEVER had consistency, if he finally gets it in Oakland, and thats a HUGE finally, raiders are in good shape. Im excited. When JRuss says no to paycut and finally gets cut, thats the cherry!!

  81. BleedB&G says: Apr 24, 2010 5:32 PM

    Must say, as a Skins fan and Campbell fan, it does make me happy that Raiders fans are pumped they’re getting him.
    I hope he gets the tools he needs and he’s able to help turn things around for you guys. The fact that he is wanted is already an immediate improvement.

    This is EXACTLY why everyone makes fun of your team. There is no jealousy. Your team is completely retarded, and you fans are too retarded to see that that is why everyone LAUGHS AT YOU AND YOUR TEAM.
    Your attitude contributes to it. No one makes fun of the Chiefs. They are also a terrible team. The difference is, THEIR FANS KNOW IT AND DON’T RUN THEIR MOUTHS LIKE THEY ARE ACTUALLY RELEVANT.

    Dude, cuz someone in the Raiders office broke a mirror like 7 years ago and that bad luck is about to change. We can at least remember when we were dominant.
    The Chef’s ain’t been relevant in, what, 40 years?

    campbell takes so much bullshit. he aint that bad and anything’s an improvement over russell.

  89. Raider240 says: Apr 25, 2010 7:34 AM

    Rather or not they make the play offs…. Rather or not some of you think Campbell is below average or not really dont matter. Thoes of you that tink that are missing the point, and that is even a below Average QB will play better then Russel did! he just has to care. Look what happened when Russel was benched last year the offence became functional at times. Funtional means the Deffence which in theory has been improoved will get more rest which might be just enough to get them 7 wins if they over acheive maybe 8. After 7 years of crap and most of them with at least 11 losses 7 and 9 or 8 and 8 even though it means no play offs is an improvement…it will give the raider fans hope of better day ahead for the team…All there pics this year made since at least on paper, and every pick was made aproximately where the so called experts thougt they should be….We can only hope at thoes of us that are raider fans that they chose the right guys, at least their off season moves and draft this year resembles a team with a plan. I also believe that even if Cambell is average at best it will be an improvement over Fatmarcus…Not sure if he will be cut or not but hopefully he will be at very east relagated to 3rd string…..I say cut him any of thes 4 other guys would be an improovement at least they all care and that might be enough to start the climb back to being at least a competive team and maybe eventully a playoff one even though i dont see that happening this year.. Just show me some imprrovement and hope that better things lie ahead for the team…Ok i typing too much I will shut up now….

    Hey you guys, give Ja Garbage some slack. Al Davis is a great guy to have as an owner if you are a Felon or psychotic loner (Lyle Alzado bless him) But if you are a horribly under-coached and under acheiving QB.. Old Al(zheimer) Davis will look at you through his cataracts as say “just win baby!” Until Brett Favre(beans) hooked up with Jon Gruden in Green Bay (J G was QB coach) he earmarked for the Ryan Leaf no-where express.
    With some decent coaching I am pretty sure Ja Garbage could become Ja Brady or at least win a championship. As for Da Raidas.. I fear my Silver and Black will not be great again until old

    Let’s see, the Raiders pick up a QB for a 2012 4th rounder (good deal for Oakland) and now, suddenly, we have Raiders fans talking playoffs?
    Attention Raiders’ fans, the QB you got is Jason Campbell, not Peyton Manning. Okay? Yes, Jason is probably an upgrade over Jamarcus, but tell me how many winning seasons has Campbell had in the NFL? That number would be zero. Yes, McClain and Houston appear to address areas of need, but do you honestly expect mid-round OTs to stablize a shaky offensive line in their first year. Jacoby Ford is a really fast guy with suspect hands and questionable route-running skills. at least Oakland didn’t spend a first on him.
    A step in the right direction, but when you’ve got 7 years of double-digit losses, you are more than a step away.

    im very happy for jason, he has a chance to prove himself. I dont think he would have been a starter for anyother team. and thankfully he still has a JOB! I dont think jamarcus can spell job.

    having to rep the Nation while dwelling amongst the hapless sd chokers it is a GLORIOUS DAY when we pick up a QB that will at least give a crap. i sooo agree with an earlier comment…it is better to be hated for what you are than loved for what you ain’t. I’m will admit to being a bit whacky to think that MAYBE…JUST MAYBE with a veteran QB on board and another brother to relate to ‘Damn-Marcus’ can pull his head out his ass-errrr-check book and try to be an NFL player. let’s git it on!

  95. Start Colt Brennan says: Apr 25, 2010 4:01 PM

    As a Skins fan and a Maryland Terps fan all I have to say is this…Good thing Heyward-Bey is fast cause he is going to have to run hard to catch all the over thrown deep balls that Campbell throws. Jason never got a fair chance in Washington after Gibbs left, but his delivery is more like a pitchers wind up and no line can hold the rush for the time he needs to get rid of the ball. So Raider nation take off your silver and black glasses for a minute and watch some of the Redskins games from the past 5 years. He may be an upgrade from JaMarcus but I would be an upgrade from that fat lazy excuse.

    –what an unfunny, unoriginal, incoherent mess of a comment that was.

    Hey all you Raider haiters should ask yourself this ,, Has your team won a superbowl ? and has your team been to a superbowl ?? has your team been to a superbowl in the last decade?? Yes the Raiders have had a real bad stretch of losing seaons 7 but we are on our way back .. Just hang on to your seat and stay tooned …
    GO RAIDERS The SilverNBlack is back

  98. Ashman23 says: Apr 27, 2010 3:46 AM

    Good move by the Raiders, gives the team a chance at building some momentum and bring back some respectability.
    Jason Campbell seems to have all the tools to succeed, the team now just needs to rally around him.
