“I’ll make the right decision for our football team as we draw closer to the game. I’m not in a rush. I’m going to watch this tape, watch the practice tape, sit down, meet with my staff, talk to upper management, Amy Trask and Mark Davis, and then make the right decision.”
That comment differs from one in a report from Steve Wyche from NFL.com. Wyche, who joined the hordes reporting that Boller is going to be under center to start Sunday’s game with the Chiefs, reports that Jackson said he knows who his quarterback will be. At this point, there’s not much reason for the Raiders to go public with their decision if only to keep the Chiefs guessing about whether they’ll be lining up against Boller, Carson Palmer or Shane Lechler as a latter-day George Blanda.
Jackson might as well keep it between himself and his Irish Coffee until kickoff rolls around.
