Oakland Raiders' weakness: Nose tackle

May 26, 2010 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: ESPN

Raiders draftee Rolondo McClain should fit well in Oakland's 3-4 defense. It appears that Oakland is serious about moving to a 3-4 scheme, or at least implementing it more as its base defense.

I wish these goobers at ESPN would quit ensinuating that we are going to a 3-4. Tom Cable has clarified that 4-3 is still gonna be our base D and some 3-4 looks would come out every now and then. We will still be a 4-3 D...WIN in 2010!!!!!!

In someways you are both(TR and ESPN) right...yes we are running 4-3 with a splash of 3-4 however...ESPN is right that we don't have a true nose tackle to run the 3-4...and that is a problem.
I don't know about you guys but I am not very jacked about this season....mainly becasue I have been jacked the last few seasons and have been let down. Yes I want us to win....but ots difficult to get excited when we keep getting let down and every year we think it will be different this year....lets just hope it is...I want the Raiders to gain some respect again....it will take a couple winning seasons in a row before we can gain that respect...but first we need to win a few games in a row....

Actually prror to last year, the last time we didn't win 2 in a row was 1997. Signs are there that we are turning things around and there is no player-coach-owner drama. I'm hoping for more wins, but I'm like RFaith...was juked for the last several seasons and was let down.

Had we drafted Terrence Cody instead of Lamar Houston and traded Tom Howard instead of Kirk Morrison, then I could see us going 3-4. However, we did sign undrafted Kellen Heard who is a 355 lb mamouth, but we don't have a second MLB now to have a true 3-4 set up.

Haters have been fairly quiet but it's been a long offseason and we still have 3 months to go.
