Jeff George to start in Oakland

Jeff George

According to Raiders’ wide receiver Jerry Porter, Jeff George will be the starting quarterback for Oakland in week 1 against the Detroit Lions.

Porter was joking, of course. But the fact of the matter is that no one but Kiffin and the Raiders know who is going to start at QB for Oakland yet.

ESPN’s John Clayton and NFL Network’s Adam Schefter reported that Josh McCown will be the starter in week 1 due to his experience with the playbook.

Some San Francisco papers/blogs reported that Daunte Culpepper appeared to be the starter due to his body language in practice this week.

However, in practice this week, it has been reported by several sources (Schefter and Jeremy Green of ESPN, among others) that McCown has been taking all the snaps with the Oakland first team, while Culpepper has been leading the scout team.

All signs point to McCown winning the job, but he likely loses it in a few weeks.

  1. Saw the title of this blog and busted out laughing. Just great. Raiders are a mess, God bless ’em.

  2. That’s the funniest headline I’ve read today. Why do I see this whole QB thing backfiring ala Charlie Weis and Notre Dame?
