    It is now settled and not up to any debate -- the Oakland Raiders will start Jason Campbell for the third consecutive game when the Raiders take on the Seattle Seahawks Sunday at the Black Hole.

    Word comes from Comcast's Paul Gutierrez that Campbell will definitely get the call, after Raiders coach Tom Cable had hemmed on naming a starter all week.

    Cable remains resolute that Bruce Gradkowski is the top dog on the Raiders' quarterback depth chart. "If (Gradkowski's) healthy enough that he can play then he’ll get all the work," Cable told the Oakland Tribune Thursday.

    Jason Campbell has been alternately fantastic and disastrous in his previous two starts. He put up a career-high 127.9 passer rating in a win over the Broncos. The week before, he put up a career-low passer rating in a loss to the 49ers.
