In Response to Adam Schefter: Raiders Favorites to Land McNabb : Nah, they're still going to stink. Remember, Tom Cable and Al Davis are running the show. Jon Gruden isn't walking through that door.

Part of me wants to say that but think about it: their defense was pretty good last year. They could have won a few more games had Russell just made a few more plays. Sure, you can say that about any time but with the Raiders, their defense kept getting stops but Russell couldn't capitalize. I know they have nobody to throw to and they're iffy at running back but they still have free agency and the draft. I don't think Al Davis is shying away from spending either (just not on the right guys, ha!). Also, look at their schedule:Home:
Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins, St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks
Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, Pittsburgh Steelers, Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers
I see at least 8-9 wins. I know that's laughable with Oakland but they tossed around the Chargers last year but just didn't have a competent QB to cap off the beatings. Chargers, at this moment are the same as last year or worse.
Just saying. They'll be better than we think. How many of us counted the Dolphins in 2008 as formiddable? What about the Jets last year?
