Let's just hope Murphy is right and it continues. I don't care who of our QB's is throwing as long as we start winning.
The fact that a WR is opening commenting on positive strides in QB/WR chemistry is a good thing. Notice we never heard that from WR's when Russell was starting. I wanted Russell to succeed but, I would rather we win games.
Everyone Keeps saying Gradkowski is not the answer. Maybe he is maybe he isn't. As long as he moves forward keep him playing. I like his attitude if nothing else. and the team is playing for him...that counts for something.

I want everybody that plays for the Raiders to succeed but success is judged on by winning and if we have a better chance at winning with Gradkowski than Russell then Gradkowski is an answer, just not a long term answer unless he proves otherwise. IF he leads us to more wins and a difference is shown on our football team then I will say that Gradkowski deserves a shot at being our franchise QB. Remember Jim Plunkett never had the right package around him until he came to the Raiders and Rich Gannon never got his deserving shot at starting until he came to the Raiders...

One positive for Gradkowski is that it appeared the offense was the same as what Russell ran. In other words, the Bengals were not surprised, the Bengals have a good defense and the Raiders still scored.

Favre or Palmer?
Let me tell you what I found. Palmers last match up against Cleveland he threw for 230 yds and 2 td's. That is about Favres average on the year. So do you think Carson is going to explode all over the Browns this week since their main back is banged up? Cincy also has the highest point spread against their opponent this week. Gambling sites have Cincy winning by 14.5 points. Favre is going against the pathetic chicago team. Favre has been good for me all year but I have a feeling about Palmer. What do you think?

I know that's right, but Schilens starts ahead of Murphy now. This may just be the chance Gradkowski needs to prove himself. We have a lot of talent, it's just a matter of jelling as a team
