Some Raider Info

Fun Facts

Here are a couple very interesting facts from Gil Brandt of NFL.com:

"For the first season since 1978, the Oakland Raiders will not have a Heisman Trophy winner on their roster."

I didn't even realize that one. I guess the end of the Charles Woodson era ended this rather impressive streak. If we would have drafted Matt Leinert, like some fans wanted, this streak would still continue. I am happy about having Huff on our roster and think ending a streak is a good thing.

"If Randy Moss catches two touchdown passes, he will be the second fastest to100 touchdown receptions in NFL history. Jerry Rice did it in 120 games and Moss has played in 125 games."

It's just too bad that Moss only had 8 touchdowns last season and played injured throughout the year. He also had injury problems during his last season in Minnesota but was still able to grab 13 touchdowns while producing under 800 yards receiving. It would be nice to see Moss go deep for 2 TDs on the Chargers on Monday night and lock up the second quickest spot.

Week 1 Predictions

Here is my analysis and predictions of the AFC West Week 1 Matchups. I have the Raiders and Broncos winning and the Chargers and Cheifs losing.

Overcoming the Chargers would say a lot about our team and our chances this season. Our best chance at doing that would require us to eliminate L.T. from the picture. We need to score quickly and try to build an early lead. That would make the Chargers try to pass the ball to play catch-up. Then we could force some defensive turnovers and put the Chargers into a hole that they won't be able to climb out of.

Am I? The Raiders have the potential to be huge this year if they can get some consistent QB play.

I also agree that the Boys will beat the Jags but it will be a pretty close game.
