How and Why the Raiders Might Make the Playoffs

There are 13 comments on the NFL News story from May 12, 2010, titled How and Why the Raiders Might Make the Playoffs. In it, NFL News reports that:

While most of the Silver & Black focus in the Bay Area has been on the dismissal of mega-bust QB JaMarcus Russell , the bigger picture of these moves is that there should be optimism that the Oakland Raiders could be a surprise team that might make a push for a Wild Card slot.

Whoa, I can believe it. Listen, while there were some dropped balls etc., the biggest reason we lost was JR, not the offensive line (which with Gallery is much improved when he's not hurt) & it will even be better. New offensive play caller (not Cable's strong suit). An even better defense that might actually stop the run. The defense will even be better because the offense should be out on the field longer. Watch out when both McFadden & Bush get more carries & if Heyward-Bey can catch the ball Campbell will get it to him. I watched Campbell at Auburn, he's an underated QB & with the right team....POW!!!! More close games will be won and there will be more close games because there will be less "blow-outs". On close games we have the edge due to our kicker!!!! We should actually beat Denver, KC & we have a team that can beat SD...but they have Phillip Rivers....one of the best QB's.

We've taken steps in the right direction like getting rid of dead weight players like Gerrard Warren, Javon Walker, Cornell Green, and most notably Jamarcus Russell. We drafted some players that were great in college that should be able to contribute right away like Rolando McClain and Lamar Houston. I'm still not sold on our OL...

i don't think it's anything magical or different. it's just that maybe, some of the things are starting to come together for us.
"coach cable on an offseason which has gotten mostly positive reviews"
RAIDERS say they would have taken t williams or r okung, if they would have slipped to #8. they felt that it would have made a huge improvement on the (O). and i agree. but i'm still not upset for the way RAIDERS did the draft.
RAIDERS 2010!!!

I really hope Cable saw something special in Jared Veldheer. I thought Anthony Davis or Brian Bulaga would've been a sure bet at RT, but as big as stud as Rolando McClain was in college, it's hard not to be disappointed with the pick. Plus the fact that Bruce Campbell fell all the way to round 4 and was mocked by many as a first or second rounder (to us in particular) shows that he probably doesn't have what it takes to be a solid NFL tackle, but could make the transition to guard. I really hope we can win more games this year.

thomas howard started 63 of his 64 career games as a RAIDER the past four seasons but he's working as a backup now behind trevor scott and kamerion wembley. but howard says he will have a chance to earn a starting job. "it's competition and thats what i was told" t howard said.
now see, "thats how and why the RAIDERS might make the playoffs!" play the best man, even if howard wins the spot back.
