NFL News: Oakland Raiders Owner Al Davis Excited For Upcoming Season

He even compared Jason Campbell to Jim Plunkett.

Davis gave a rare radio interview with Sirius NFL Radio in which he said this years team reminds him of the 1980 Raiders team in many ways, including QB.

“I see this young Jason Campbell as a football player like I saw Jim Plunkett. He has everything. He was 13-0 in college, at Auburn, he can throw up the field, he can run, he’s big, he’s smart,” Davis said. “I really predict great things for him. I hope he doesn’t let me down. I don’t think he will.”

Campbell was traded to the Raiders from the Redskins where he had the best stats of his career last year, but led the team to only a 4-12 record.
