Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell had a quarterback rating of 10.7 on Sunday against the 49ers. That’s worse than any start JaMarcus Russell ever had.
Campbell’s struggles were exacerbated by a knee injury. He told Comcast Sportsnet Bay Area that he will undergo an MRI on Monday after suffering the injury in the first half.
Despite all the talk of progress this offseason, the Raiders offense looked rather familiar on Sunday. At one point, they had five straight three-and-outs. They had only two first downs during a ten possession run. The 49ers allowed only 179 yards of total offense, their best day since 2004.
Raiders coach Tom Cable said after the game he never considered pulling Campbell for Kyle Boller, who was the team’s backup with Bruce Gradkowski hurt.
Campbell’s effort could go a long way towards ultimately giving Gradkowski his job back. Only Jimmy Clausen has thrown for fewer yards-per-attempt than Campbell this year.
