Well, Al Davis is an unconventional owner. We never know quite what he's thinking only that it isn't what everyone else is.
JaMarcus is a huge bust because he lacks what the great QBs have to have--leadership and the drive to be the best.
Jimmy Clausen reminds me a bit of a former Raiders QB--Daryle Lamonica.
Lamonica was a HS star in CA that went to Notre Dame, as is Jimmy Clausen. He became the "Mad Bomber" for Al and won 2 MVPs. They're also roughly the same size.
So with JR not showing up for off-season work-outs and weird Al wanting to make a splash before he meets his maker (Lucifer), I went w/ the SoCal boy who wants to return to his roots.
