I don't know if I agree or disagree with this. Bush is a hard runner and I think is just as much a scoring threat as McFadden. Lots of teams would love to have Bush as a starter. McFadden is too injury prone to be counted on.

I'm still up in the air about whether Palmer was a good thing or a bad thing. However, he is better than Boller, but I think we were better with Campbell.

I've never been sold on Khalif Barnes as a starter and I think Cooper Carlisle's age is catching up to him. Our OL seemed pretty good at first, but seems to have fallen. It seems to me that we do better with Stephon Hayer at LG and Stefan Wisniewski at center. I honestly look for Wiz to take the starting center job in the next 2 years

The secondary is what is killing us on defense. Routt and Huff are overpaid. They make the big plays every once in a while but often miss tackles that lead to big plays.

RAIDERS (D) is ranked 26th over all.
11th on (O) over all.
for micheal bush, you have to open holes for him to gain yds. for d mcfadden, he has to run outside to gain yds. i wish t jones would have been able to show what he is capable of. so far, he's shown nothing but a hamstring injury! as much as injury prone mcfadden is, i still would take him over micheal bush. it's frustrating with dmac's injury!
as far as (qb's) go, im still happy with carson palmer over jason campbell. carson has thrown more int's than campbell but thats cause he suddenly joined the team. now palmer has thrown for more yds than campbell and keeps getting better and better. i'd stick with palmer as the starter. if campbell does not want to be a back up, aaron pryor, will be. k boller is gone this year!
the (O) is doing ok to be ranked 11th in the leauge overall. a little tweeking here and there and just a little better play calling from h jacko.
the (D) needs some fixin'! i would start trying to find a new updated (D)-coach. take advantage now that AL DAVIS is gone!(rest in peace). but with that, get a new (GM). hue jackson has the mentality of a RAIDER and AL DAVIS, so a general manager and hue jackson and a new updated (D) coach will work for the RAIDERS.
AND FOR THE DRAFT? do as al davis does, get a high pick (cb)!
RAIDERS 2012!!! AL!

The secondary kills you because there is little pressure on the QB
