OAKLAND - This is Kyle Boller's team.
That's a scary proposition to many Raider fans.
There are already some calling for Terrelle Pryor to play (no way, he's not ready).
Then there's questions about any other free agents.
David Garrard? Sounds like a great idea, right? Sure if you like bringing in a quarterback that hasn't been around your team all season and asking him to take over.
Heck, what's Brett Favre up to?
There's no timetable for Jason Campbell to return from a fractured clavicle he suffered in the second quarter of today's 24-17 win over the Cleveland Browns at O.co Coliseum.
I'm no doctor but, let's assume he'll be gone for a while.
The Raiders best option for now is to stick with Boller and possibly bring back Trent Edwards, who was with the team in training camp.
The Raiders believe they are a playoff team. If that's the case they can't turn the ball over to Pryor, who said he could lead the team with a scaled back playbook.
"Going in the classroom and being on the field is two completely different things, you know, so some of this stuff is a little longer, the plays and stuff," Pryor said. "So I'm just trying to get the grip down on calling the plays fully and yeah, but of course, if it was cut down to a minimum, yeah.""
Remember, Pryor had little training camp and was then suspended for five weeks. He didn't begin practicing with the team until last week.
Edwards would give the Raiders a veteran backup who has at least played in the NFL.
That brings us back to Boller, who has 48 touchdown passes and 51 interceptions in his career.
For the most part, Boller will be asked to do what many expected Campbell to do - manage the offense.
Boller said this situation is different because in Baltimore he didn't have the wide receivers he has now, so he expects to be more than a caretaker.
As for how he looked today, it wasn't completely shocking.
Backup quarterbacks don't take snaps with the offense.
"I haven't taken one," Boller said. "That's just the way it is. That's the way it is as a backup quarterback. I take all the scout team stuff, but obviously when you're a starter, there's only so many limited reps in practice that the backups don't usually get them. You've got to just do a lot of mental reps and hopefully, depending on what happens to Jason, I'll be able to work with some of the guys and get that timing down."
He's also looking forward to showing he can be lead a team with a coach (Jackson) that believes in him.
Jackson brought Boller to Oakland when he came as offensive coordinator, knowing when they were together in Baltimore in 2008.
(Boller was on injured reserve that season, allowing Joe Flacco to take over at quarterback).
Boller looked off in his first action this season. He was 8-for-14 for 100 yards in relief of Campbell.
The Raiders lone touchdown pass was thrown by punter Shane Lechler.
"I think (Boller) played like a guy who hadn't have a lot of practice," said Raiders coach Hue Jackson. "He kept battling and kept fighting. There's some throws that I know Kyle can make that I know he wishes he could have back. He did just what he needed to do. He came in and helped this team with. At the end of the day that's all I care about. Next week he'll get a lot of reps obviously this week coming up and we'll get better."
Boller will have to be better and he knows that.
Because as of now, there's no one else the Raiders can realistically turn to.
