'Bruce Almighty' Has proved he can win with our team. A day after being waived by the Browns, Gradkowski was claimed off waivers by the Raiders. His first start he threw two touchdowns against the bengals and tied Russells touchdown count for the season. In week 13, the Raiders won 27-24 on a huge upset against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Gradkowski completed 20 of 33 passes for 308 yards and 3 touchdowns, including an 11-yard game winning touchdown to Louis Murphy. For his performance in this game he was awarded the AFC Offensive Player of the Week award for week 13 of the regular season. It was also a new record in the NFL, for the most come from behind touchdowns thrown in the 4th Quarter since 1991. He was injured in a game against the Washington Redskins during the 2nd quarter and replaced by JaMarcus Russell. The Raiders lost the game 34-13 without Gradowski. Gradkowski missed the remainder of the 2009 season with a partially torn MCL in both knees. He tore a pectoral muscle while lifting weights in April 2010. 'The Polish Cannon' will be going against Jason Cambpell for the starting QB.\
Jason Campbell was drafted 25th in the 2005 draft. A cool fact his first career start he lost to the Bruce and the bucs. He is 20-32 all time. He has improved each year with a declining team. Some say he wasn't in the right system and didn't fit the west coast offense. He's a hard worker and Skin fans are almost as bad as Philly fans about their QBs. His whole team was injured and he still had a good season.
Charlie Frye and Kyle Boller will most likely be batteling for the 3rd string spot. Preseason is gonna be exciting there's alot of positon battles and rookies that i know i'm dieing to see. Remember though Frye and Grad were suppose to be fighting for the 3rd string spot last year but didn't they finish the season as 1st and 2nd string just something to think about.
