I love the Raiders, but let's be honest: we have no proven legitimate receivers, except Zach Miller but he needs to step up even more to 70-80 catches and 9-12 TDs. Murphy is injury ridden and has yet to prove himself. Gotta love Jacoby Ford, but we need a Tim Brown 90-100 catches receiver and Ford needs to step up to that to be legitmate. Potential is worthless. Jerry Porter proved that. Higgins is ok, but basically is a punt returner. Heyward-Bey is a waste of a player's spot. Miller/Schillens=still potential. We need to pick up a legitimate WR threat and that'll open up everything for the others but only if the OLine proves improved in pass protection

Jason Campbell holds his WRs more accountable than JBust did. Zach Miller is one of the best TEs in football. Schilens has good hands but is a walking injury. Murphy has been the most consistant and has potential; I like him, but I'm not sure that he's a #1 WR. Higgins is a good emergency WR; same for N Miller. DHB would be dangerous if he could catch the football. Ford prooved that He IS dangerous when the ball is in his hands. I'm really interested in what Denarius Moore will bring to the table. It's like you said TBone we need our next Tim Brown...I myself say JUST WIN BABY!!!!!!!!!!

This is where Vince Young needs to swallow his ego and play wideout. Dude is about as electric as Gayle Sayers

hard to believe but our next closest t brown is going to be denarius moore! this year as far as (wr's), it's all about d moore, j ford, m schilens, and dh-bey in that order. murphy still plays a big roll and higgins is out!
