It will be interesting to see what McKenzie will do with the draft, from here. I really don't think the Raiders will continue on this path of suck, now that Al is gone. I DO think it will be another two years or so before they get back to winning consistently. There is just too much Al baggage to fix before they can recover.
Robert Gallery was such a disappointment. Great college player that just didn't translate as well to the NFL. Sucks, as a Hawkeye fan I loved watching Gallery maul defenders.
