QB Conteroversy in Oakland

 

It seems like the ongoing problem in Oakland is "Who should be the #1 starter for the QB spot?" Raiders signing FA Jeff Garcia has started and kept as a big stir in Oakland.  Actually, it's a good problem.  But the question is, who should start? The QB that they drafted 1st overall 3 years ago? Or should they start the veteran QB who's age is catching up to him?

 

We all know that Garcia's intention is not to be the backup for the Raiders. We all know that. We all know that he wants that starting job also, but I hope that should be  a motivational push for Russell, who is also competing for that spot.  I believe that starting job should belong to Russell even if he's struggling throughout the year.  He needs more experience. He didn't play for his rookie season when technically last season was his rookie season. But we all know again that he has great potential. He has the arm, the size, and "maybe" the athleticism to escape from the pocket when the line collapses, which happens mostly all the time last season. But that starting spot should belong to Russell. Plain and simple, it's not hard to figure out, if Davis wants to see the future of the Raiders, He should just keep him at that spot instead of taking control of the team and telling the coach to start an aging QB who has a couple of years left in him.

 

But that decision lays in Coach Cable's hand. In my opinion, I just hope that Russell should be the starting QB by the start of the season, throughout the whole season, unless he gets injured, and at the end of the season.
