I think it could be the right choice. He has looked good so far in the preseason. We shall see how long he can keep the job now, since he doesn't have to worry about Russell coming in and taking the job soon.

i thought this happened a week or two ago.

it makes sense, particularly since their first game is against Detroit, a team Pep has seen before.

I was hoping Culpepper would get the starting job. He certainly deserve it, and IMO one of the candidates for CPOY.

That's strange, NFL.com is reporting they are naming McCown the starter. The story was posted 8 minutes ago:

That's weird, because I was watching ESPN and the also reported that Culpepper was going to be the starter. And Raiders Lane Kiffin was going to announce it later today.

Man...can the Raiders do anything right? Laughing

Conflicting stories and I really don't know what to believe. I would personally go with Culpepper though.

There's an interesting battle brewing in the universe of football media, at least as it relates to the identity of the starting quarterback for Sunday's season opener between the Raiders and the Lions.

ESPN reports that Daunte Culpepper will get the nod. Adam Schefter of NFLN reports that it will be Josh McCown.

We'll know which one was right on Sunday at or about 4:15 pm.

Apparently, no one knows for sure.

And when Oakland plays Minnesota as well. That one is at the metrodome if my memory serves me correctly. Culpepper has to face both ex teams, tough for him. I really hope the metrodome crowd really lets Culpepper have it.
