    Oakland Raiders - Team Preview

    http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/...d-Raiders.html

    A fair roundup of the Raiders.

    To me the Raiders look a little old for a team cleaning up its contract and salary cap problems. Other than that - they are not very deep.

    I really like Derek Carr - he has one of the fastest releases - I've ever seen in college football -with pace on the ball and on target. If you can train this guy to understand the game and make decisions - he has the talent to succeed at a very high level.

    The Raiders are week at LT - the Broncos will gobble them up with the pass rush.

    I really don't think they are that much better. Maybe a little.

    I like Sio Moore a lot at LB .. If Mack is the real deal, the Raiders could have something good going on at LB

    I wish Hayden all the best - the guy has an incredible story, and I hope he can eventually be a great player ... and I think Carr and Garapollo were the best QBs in the draft ... I like Carr a lot - he's a natural - but they need some playmakers ... If MacFadden could just stay on the field ...

    I'm not sold on Dennis Allen - I think it goes without saying that he stands to be outcoached against any of the other AFC West teams
    It stands to reason that where there’s sacrifice, there’s someone collecting sacrificial offerings... Where there’s service, there’s someone being served... The man who speaks to you of sacrifice, speaks of slaves and masters. And intends to be the master.
