Report: Al Davis Wants Campbell

Steve Corkan of the Contra Costa Times is reporting, according to several sources, that Al Davis has expressed his desire for Jason Campbell to remain the starting quarterback.

This was one of the possible scenarios I presented this morning for Tom Cable’s stunning change of heart.

To be fair to the organization, Davis may not be forcing the issue, but rather making his desire known to Tom Cable and Hue Jackson.

Tom Cable would have to be very confident in Bruce Gradkowski’s play and health to consider going against his bosses’ wishes.

Al Davis could keep his opinions to himself, but why would he? He owns the team and operates the football side, why wouldn’t he? That’s a better question.
