The Raiders needed a new quarterback and they found one, they added former Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell to their squad in the offseason. QB Jason Campbell is expected to have a good understanding of the Raiders’ offensive scheme, which forces teams to adjust every down . They’re run oriented and they’ve got tremendous weapons that can stretch the field. The Raiders try to emerge from the wreckage of the Russell era, with a hope of ending a string of seven seasons with at least 11 losses. Campbell needed this fresh start just as much as the Raiders did. He is only 20-32 as an NFL starter. Campbell endured five tumultuous seasons in Washington, where he was battered by opposing defenses on the field and bruised off it by management's constant efforts to find a replacement for him. It's nice, he said, to be wanted again."I feel I can be a really good quarterback in this league," Campbell said. "It's a new beginning. It would mean the world to me if I could help turn the Raiders
The Titans mantra has been starting the season quickly and successfully. They’ll rely on RB Chris Johnson, who accounted for nearly 72 percent of the Titans’ run attempts in 2009, rushing 358 of Tennessee’s 499 attempts en route to his single-season franchise record 2,006 yards on the ground. Johnson also scored 14 of the team’s 19 rushing touchdowns. Coach Fisher said the Titans are ready to open the season, but are not taking the Raiders for granted . “I think we have some good weapons,” Fisher said. “We have the best offensive line in the league, the best running back in the league. We have some young guys on defense that are going to do some great things for us. I’m excited about what we have here. We know how good we are, so we’re just going to prove it to everybody else.”
