Beauty article Carl. Many very valid points that I hadn't realized. I clearly remember Boss' sweet catch and run in the Giants' unlikely Superbowl victory over the previously unbeaten Patriots. Another vivid memory of that game was Justin "Tuck" having his way with the Pats O-line and subsequently Tom Brady. Coincidence Raider fans? Like I said, beauty.

I disagree with this because Miller knows our system and Boss will have to learn it. Miller is faster than Boss and Miller speant most of his career with a loafing QB while Boss has mostly been with a Pro Bowler. Anyhow...Miller is gone and Boss is here so hopefully he'll live up to his name and BOSS around opposing defenses!!!!!!!!

Hey Tex. The Giants also had some go to receivers for Manning to throw to, whereas Miller was targeted far more out of necessity. I believe Boss's blocking skills and bigger body in the red-zone, are reasons for Raider Nation to get excited. I'm guessing that he will nicely assist and compliment the #2 ranked running attack from last year. Not to mention being the same age as Miller, and getting Boss for half the money.

Boss is a good player and a legit replacement for Miller. I just hate that Al Davis let a good coach go and now good players are leavign. Now we need to solidify the OL since Gallery left.

gallery left because of cable and because he is a wining baby! he had a chance to stay? and so did zack miller! YEA, he (miller) chose seattle because of cable, but getting double the pay of what he was offered here? why not? i probably would too!(lol). nnamdi was the same, but more about moving on in his career with that much more pay. it's like they say, we can get two or three guys that are just almost just as good for that pay. like hue says, "you win some, and you lose some. we lost that with miller". we fixed it with k boss (hopefully)?. we still got our guys at (cb) at (c). they're still the guys that were there with cable? they're still the guys that did better when hue showed up?! we went 8-8. sometimes people act like we are the only team in the nfl that lets go of good players. thats just the way the world turns in the nfl. but we move on for better or worse. we're still on the right track today if you ask me? OR better!

(LOL) that's right! say that to your friends when they do something cool and tell them "your're a badass chick"! see how they respond =D
RAIDERS 2011!!! i think we'll have a decent year. nobody ever knows how it will turn out, we can only guess so we guess with our instincts. to me, "hue jackson" is my number one reason i feel we are going to do well. he has no excuses why we can't keep moving forward. why we may get set back is another!(lol). but, we should be fine. if anything we'll be up one notch more than last year.
RAIDERS 2011!!! YOU COUNT ON IT!
