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!

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
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.
