Jason Campbell broke his collarbone in Sunday's game against the Browns and is expected to miss the rest of the season.

The break appeared to be on Campbell's throwing side, ending any chance of a return this year. That leaves Kyle Boller as the Raiders' starter and the Raiders will have to look to the street for a No. 3 quarterback. It's unlikely rookie project Terrelle Pryor is already prepared to be one injury away from seeing the field. Downgrade the entire Raiders' passing game going forward.

Maybe Trent Edwards will be making his return to Oakland. Damn.

Honestly I feel like this isn't a HUGE blow to our team...

I wouldn't mind seeing Pryor get some minutes after Boller within the next two games considering our competition.

Not sure Pryor is close to being ready. He has been working on NOTHING but his footwork on dropbacks in the last 5 weeks. He finally had 3 practices, in which he took "few" snaps, and admittedly doesn't know a great deal of the playbook.

I will say this, Boller makes me very nervous, and afraid for our team. Let's get behind him though, it's his team now.

Also, do NOT overlook KC. With or without Campbell. If you go back and look at Raiders/Chiefs scores over the last 20 games or so, you will see that a very high % of those games end closer than a TD. Even when we're good and they're bad, or they're good and we're bad, or we are both good or both bad, it's almost always a close game with KC.

Don't get me wrong Sky, I'd like to see Pryor succeed, I just don't think he is close to ready to see the field. I would love to be proven wrong by him.

Sometimes miracle seasons happen after a number one goes down and it appears to be hopeless (think Plunkett coming to the Raiders). We can hope this is that season,,although you know darn well tommorrow,,,if it hasn't already,,the call goes out for another QB.

Does suck though,,Campbell really isn't a Superbowl winning type QB and who knows,,jsut maybe Pryor it,,,,,,maybe,,,,hopefully,,praying,,crossing fingers,,,,

Doh- terrible news. I wonder if Pryor can step it quick- highly doubtful that he's ready though.

Repped High Quality Post

Jason Campbell going down sucks, he was starting to look good and fall into his role nicely. But him going down does not end the Raiders season by any means. He was a game manager, nothing more and is replaceable.

Obviously if the Raiders picked up Carson Palmer, that would be an upgrade over Campbell. We would go from having a game manager to someone who has a HUGE arm that could definitely hurt some opposing defenses.

If they sign Garrard, then it's pretty much a lateral move, I think he has a very similar play style to Campbell and we wouldn't miss a step with Garrard. He's mobile and doesn't make dumb decisions with the ball. I wouldn't be against signing Garrard. But I did hear that he turned down the Colts and the Dolphins because he wanted a long term QB deal and wanted to be the man not someone's replacement for a season.

Boller looked terrible in the beginning yesterday, missing wide open receivers and showing poor QB awareness in the pocket. But towards the end of the game, he looked like he was starting to get into a rhythm. He started completing passes to DHB and Ford and helped move the ball down the field. It looked like he was starting to shake off the cobwebs, and who knows, with some extra practice with the 1st team, he may prove to be a decent replacement for Campbell. Boller also has an advantage over any QB choice out there: he knows the system already.

If the offensive line can keep up with the solid QB protection, I think that any QB that is plugged into our offensive system will be okay. The Raiders have a lot of offensive weapons to use. The ideal choice to bring the best out of these weapons would be Palmer. But I'd be okay with Garrard and I'd be willing to give Boller his shot. There is no way under any circumstances that I'd want to see Pryor in there at all. He's just not ready to go yet.
