This guy is right about having some consistancy with the team, keep working Zach Miller in the offense, and revanmp the DL, but his WR comments I am kind of skeptical. I guess it's because he doesn't realize that Porter and Curry aren't quite what you need in a #1 receiver.

I do agree with this guy on a couple of facts. One is that i agree that it is al davis's time to leave and retire! Another thing i agree on is that zach miller is an emerging star in this league. And another thing i agree on is that we should start fargas as our halfback! But i didnt agree with him on that the raiders receiving corps. are good! The receiving corps are our 2nd priority behind defensive line!

How can this guy know anything about super bowl hang over?(that is as far as I could get in the article, reading advice from a chef's fan.....) chefs and the real super bowl will never be spoken in the same sentence except when telling a lie. That organization has not won a thing to speak of since #3, no one is still alive from then. that is why every year the two Raider games are the chefs super bowls. I know I live in the heart of chef country....Its a joke, but they all know that the chefs will NEVER win a super bowl until they get rid of there owner who is just as bad as Al. Except al wants to win a super bowl chef owner wants to win 10 games so he can continue to keep selling out that stadium make money off idiot fans that think this is the year every year. Let me save you the heart break 2008-2009 season isn't your year either..its not the raiders either (yet) but we are going in the right direction, the chefs are going backwards.

The Raiders should open the checkbook for a fireplug for the 3-4 defense. I don't know how to analyze the WR problem, whether it's coaching or the personnel, but something has to be done to get them in the open. As good as the TEs looked this season, I see them taking on a larger part of the load with the more complex playbook for next season. After all, a QB should have more than one target...at least have an outlet, which TEs do well. And with that expanded playbook, maybe the WRs will find more space when the TEs establish their threat. I firmly believe that a WR who commits a false start should sit on the bench. Gotta get serious about this false start problem. The Raiders can drive downfield as things stand right now, but they're their own worst enemy, even worse than the refs.

Well Said 2oonz. for investing in 3-4 personell we should start with re-signing Tommy Kelly, drafting Chris Long, and a big NT in the second, unless we sign Albert Haynesworth. Then we should get a good sized ILB. For the WR problem I'm hoping we can trade off Lamont Jordan and Gerrard Warren for Larry Fitzgerald or sign Bernard Berrian.
