As a Raiders fan, do you see any gaping holes in the Culpepper to Oakland theory?
Personally I cannot imagine a worse fit - Miami's O-line was poor last year, and if Oakland improve this year (they can't get worse) they will be up to a similar level - C-Pep would give us a new record for fumbles in a season - if he lasted the whole year.
Raiders need a QB quick on his feet, who can sense pressure - not a big arm - big arms need time to throw.
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
