The Offense is Starting Slow in Training Camp

Training Camp
In the latest post by Jerry McDonald in the Raider's Training Camp Blog, Jerry reports that a group of NFL officials came to camp today to work with the team. This is great news because working with the officials should help reduce our penalties and improveour reputation with the officials. Maybe that will cut down on some of the lame penalties that lose games for us. One a bad note, it seems our offense hasn't looked that great yet this training camp. Hopefully they can continue to improve and be firing on all cylindars when the season rolls around. He also noted that Michael Huff has been improving and making more plays. Hopefully that trend continues and Huff become the player we need him to become.

The Donkeys
Accroding to this ESPN Report, the Broncos are interested in trading for Chicago's Thomas Jones. I doubt the Bears can consider this deal too seriously unless the get some amazing compensation. Cedric Benson is still too much of an unknown to give up a proven runner like Jones. I hope this deal doesn't happen because it would give the Broncos the best back they've had since Clinton Portis and that wouldn't be good for the Raiders.

Pro Football Weekly
This report has several interesting tidbits of information. The writer, Todd Wright, feels that Ty Law will see a reduction in interceptions and will give up more big plays due to Kansas City's poor pass rush. Don't misunderstand, Law is a good player but this may be one of the worst defenses fronts on a team he has played on.

Willie Roaf retired today... I guess there goes the playoffs for the Chiefs.

He is a huge loss. The Cheifs decline might start a earlier than I expected. Shields will most likely retire next year. The biggest problem is the Cheifs are expecting Turley to be able to start at right tackle. He has been out of the game an has injury problems. Sorry LJ, your shot at 2000 yards just went away.

With the Chiefs offense getting long in the tooth and the defense's lack of talent, the 06 and 07 seasons are not exactly brimming with promise. I predict a 6-10 season in 06 and 4-12 season in 07. Ouch!

Their only hope was Johnson but Roaf's retirement will hurt.
