Bold Predictions

I, like many Raider faithful, am very excited about the direction the team has taken since the end of last season. After looking at all of our changes I feel like making a few bold predictions.

1) We will win at least two divisional games this season.

I think Kiffin will appease Al Davis in his first season as head coach by ending our streak of losses against our AFC West opponents.

2) We will not finish last in the AFC West

The AFC West has always been one of the toughest divisions in the league but I believe we will finish ahead of the Chiefs this season.

3) We will be in the Super Bowl in the next 4 years

This is by far my boldest prediction but I say it with confidence. We have an extremely talented defense that should continue to improve with time and a player to build our offense around. I think Russell will be one of the elite guys in the league when he gets some experience under his belt and I am hopeful that Michael Bush becomes the back to finally compete with the other AFC West backs.
