Re: Oakland Raiders 09-10 season
The situation with the Raiders is pretty simple IMO. They have no WRs, like at all, none of them can catch, none can run routes, they all suck period. They made a huge error as we all know picking DHB over Crabtree. DHB had no business in the first round, he is a project which will never come around in Oakland. IF the Raiders BUY a franchise WR like a Brandon Marshall or Anquan Boldin, AND either sign a good QB or draft someone like Jimmy Clausen AND ditch their current staff, they could be headed for a turn around. Their special teams is solid enough, defense is solid enough to sometimes good and mostly consistent, the kicking game is great, the RBs have enough talent to sustain with DMC, Bush, Fargas, the O line is actually better than people think. Zach Miller is a good NFL TE, the problems are WR/QB based and those are huge holes. Until those are fixed, nothing will improve record wise, a QB without a WR will do nothing, a WR without a QB (see Randy Moss in Oakland) will do nothing as well. They are done until they acquire both legit WR and QB, while keeping everything else intact and finding a new coaching staff.
