Love the article. Of course I have to put in my 2 cents. lol! Mcfadden is the best in the league by far, hands down when healthy. & he'll be key to making this offense roll but if he's not worried about getting hurt then neither am I. We have arguably the best backfield in the nfl. Yea I said it this years backfield is better without bush. He didn't make the defense respect the outside. Goodson has the speed & experience in the zbs to be explosive this year along with dmc & jones. All that said the defense & defensive play calling is the key. The front 7 needs too be disruptive in the passing game like they were early lastyear & be dominate in the run game like we haven't been in a long time. Play sound gap control defense. Don't be superman but account 4 urself & the man standing next to u. Football is a game of will. If we put our minds to it we are physical, fast, athletic, team our there. We just gotta put it all together. I got faith. Raider Nation!!!

I so hope they reach the playoffs. Obviously I would like a deep run. But playoffs would be a start. McFadden is tge best rb when healthy. Problem is he always gets hurt. I hope his strength and cinditioning coach sets him up for a healthy season. Then he needs some lanes....can't wait for the season to start...can't get here soon enough.

I'm from new jersey, if I can feel something diff in oakland all the way from over here then it gotta something. Lol! Reggie gets all the credit but I think carson deserve his fair share. Carson has high expectations & this is the first time we had a franchise QB since gannon. QB is the piece that make the train move & I have full confidence in him & 4 the 1st time in a long time full confidence in when the whole team is headed.
