Fair article. The statement regarding Raiders having good short term talent wassmart. We have age against us in Seymour and Palmer. Also the injury trouble we have had and have is a question Mark. But we still have a fair amount of talent. I have said it before and i will say it again: tornovers and penalties are where we need to improve. That in it's self couldget us acouple more wins.

the old way years before al davis passed away,(rest in peace), was that if RAIDERS turned the ball over or had multiple penalties, we could win a game regardless of the situation! those last 8yrs of his life with the RAIDERS, were failing in that aspect. this is why whether i like it or not, we gotta go with the flow and see what reggie mckenzie has. wins are great. but i'm not expecting superbowl right away. we had and have a talented team for the most part. one or two players here and there are old but if they are helping the team win? sure, why mot! continuous win and 8-8 and over are good. playoffs are even better on a yearly basis. we have and could have had a couple of playoff runs lately but injury played a good part in setting us back plus, costly penalties. that's why we gotta have backup players that are almost as good as the starters so that when we get to the playoffs, we can continue the run.what do you guys think of dennis allen so far? i'm still up waiting to see something great from all the new system. most of the players are ok. it's the new gm, and the new coaches that i'm a little concerned about. but what the hell, we've waited this long for a playoff game. i don't want to say, whats another year?. i am antsy to get a good run to the playoffs this year. WE HAVE TO GET TO THE PLAOFFS or i'm gonna start ponting fingers and talk to mark davis about changes!(lol). al davis made changes of coaches because he had problems with them. but he gave them all the chances in the world "to win"! sorry but 3rs, maybe 4 is good enough for me as well. i don't know about you guys but anymore than that and patience starts to wear thin. I don't have that kind of patience. but i am hopefull and patient for 3yrs with d allen! maybe!?

Turnovers and Staying healthy are the biggest concerns for me. As far as penalties go, like I've said before, "As long as the Zebras have it out for us, we're screwed in that area." I want to see us WINNING again and would love playoffs. I've seen a lot of improvement the last two years, but I'm still not sold on Carson Palmer at QB plus Michael Bush will be a bigger loss than expected.
