Last year Tony did a post draft prediction of who would win Rookie of the Year honors. I don't remember seeing a thread about speculations for this year. Here goes..

Offense:
Robert Meachem NO: With all the weapons that offense has (veteren quarterback, amazing thunder/lightning backfield, dynamo sophomore wideout) I see a lot of opprotunities for Meachem to get lost in the secondary. Even if Joe Horn wasn't shipped off he probably would have been hurt by week 2 and their other options (Copper, Henderson) aren't amazing options. His height, 6'3, and speed, 4.45 40, means he has the body to make it at this level. It also helps that he set records at Tennessee and led the SEC last year with 105.4 yards per game.

Defense:
Paul Posluszny BUF If it wasn't for a suspect knee he, more than likely, would have entered the draft last year, coming off a Butkus award season. He'll be playing WLB, but showed last year at PSU he can play ILB, too. With the departure of Fletcher-Baker the LB core in Buffalo needs a playmaker. He has great leader qualities and will do well putting the hurt on Maroney twice a year for the next decade or so :smile: (sorry LITP, had to do it).

well hopefully they do not mess it up this year like last year. Giving young rookie of the year was a freakin joke last year. When Colston are Bush were a better choice by 100%.

Good picks, and excellent prediction. I don't think the people who won ROTY last season deserved it much either, although they were decent players.

I did one this month, but it was for more than just rookie of the year - maybe the mods can combine them so we can compare later.

Thanks, LITP - I merged 'em and kept your thread title intact, as it is more all-inclusive.

C'mon LITP... 3-13? I know the Raiders don't deserve to be thought of very highly in any kind of poll, but don't you think thats a little ridiculous?

I'm not a homer that thinks the Raiders are going to the playoffs or win the division or anything like that, but I sure don't see them winning less than 5 games this year. Do you really think Detroit is better than the Raiders? I know our record sucked last year, and our offense sucked even worse... but with the draft we had, the defense we have, and getting rid of Moss, you really can't see us doing better than that? I sure can.

I sure can.

Believe it or not, im not a Raiders hater but fundamental problems from last year haven't really been addressed.

Namely the O-line.

Factor in a rookie QB who likes to throw deep and I can see alot of turnovers for the Raiders this year.

Maybe Josh McCown starts instead, and I guess at least he used to playing behind a poor O-line but even if he doesn't turn the ball over I don't see him generating any real offense.

The fact that the Raiders play in a very difficult division (Broncos and Chargers look like strong playoff prospects and KC made it to the postseason only last year) and also have the toughest schedule (on paper at least) surely doesn't bode well.

I see a quick fix FA trade for RB Dominic Rhodes who isn't really required - I think if you gave LaMont Jordan a half decent line to run behind he could be an every down back.

The D you have to give credit, if im reading the stats right (and it wouldn't be the first time I read something wrong) it looks like Oakland has the 2nd least penalised D in the NFL - thats quite a departure from the perception of your typical undisciplined Raiders unit.

The rush D ranks only 25th last year, but that it has to be attributed to the offense not being able to stay on the field as they only conceed 4.0 ypc - which puts them just outside the top10.

When you have a struggling franchise I think the D is the first area to be looked, so I think Oakland are getting that right.

On the flip side the appointment of Lane Kiffin as HC seems eccentric (thats kindest word I can think for it) - a guy who has no HC experience and no NFL experience at all is not the guy to turn this ship around - not as far as I see it.

If teams work out how to score on Oakland then this year could be worse than last.

On the subject of Detroit - they are in the NFC which is a great help for poor teams, they also play in a weak division (Chicago are good but apart from that....not much).

I think Mike Martz will generate an exciting offense in Detriot - Kitna is capable of throwing for alot of yardage this year - Calvin Johnson, Roy Williams and Mike Furrey are potentially explosive out wide and Kevin Jones (if fit) and Tatum Bell look solid running the ball.

Head to head this would be an interesting matchup (Oakland v Detriot) but the fact is the raiders have the misfortune of playing in the AFC when it is by far the stronger conference.

I can't deny that what you say is, for the most part, true. What I can say is: the O line looks to be improved already, just by a change in coaching and blocking schemes. I'm sure not going to tell you that everything is fixed, I'm sure it isn't, but the O line will be noticeably better this year.

I really don't see JR starting this year. I'm 99% sure that McCown will be the starter.

The run D is suspect untill proven otherwise, but here again, I think it will be improved with Terdell Sands on the other side of Sapp.

We are in a very tough division, and we do have the toughest schedual in the NFL, but I think we will win at least 2 division games, and possibly 3 this year. I think we can take Denver 1 game and KC twice. Beating SD is a stretch, I know, but we almost beat them the second game last year.

I agree that Kiffin is still a ?, but he seems to have a very good grasp of the situation in Oakland, and he is making some very good moves, so far.

Maybe I'm looking at it from a fan's point of view, but I just don't think its possible to be as bad as it was last year with Shell and Waffles.

I guess all we can do is wait and see how it all unfolds. I'm trying to stay cautiously optimistic.

Like I said, after the last 4 seasons, the Raiders don't deserve to thought of too highly, and I hope they can step up and be the surprise team of the league this year.

I know you aren't a hater... I understand where you're coming from. I hope I can come back at the end of the year and serve you a little crow! :sofunny:

By the way, we open the season against Detroit... we shall see.

Cautiously optimistic is always the way to play it - otherwise...whats the point of being a fan, right?

Detriot /Oakland - Week1 eh? Like I said, I think it'll be close - anymore than that is hard to predict.

If the Raiders serve up 5 wins or more this year - you can serve me up some crow :cheers:
