JC is the Raiders starting QB & while picking up Trent Edwards wasn’t viewed as the best thing, I thought his experience would be able to help Jason Campbell. Edwards is released and Oakland now has Terrelle Pryor! The QB form OSU that...I’m going to keep my comments to myself until he gets on the field for some action. However, at first glance, it doesn’t look like the best thing for Oakland. For the past few months, I was fit to be tied and screamed almost every day for this lock out to end. It was terrible. Not knowing who was going where, how Hue was going to do, if contracts would be voided and if we were going to be ready with no real OTAs or Training Camps. I never want to experience a lock out again and the season wasnt even shortened because of it.
While Oakland doesn’t have all the pieces it did last year, the most important piece (most feel) at CB they went 8-8 without. The loss of Miller will not hinder the Raiders too much either. Boss should fit well in that position. Although Miller had more yardage and was Raiders leading rusher, they both contributed 5 TD to their teams last year. I’m looking forward to seeing Richard Seymour back on the field with his leadership skills, as well as my favorite Rolando McClain. He has proven to be something special. Jacoby Ford was a fan favorite last year and I expect him to do greater things for the Silver and Black in the 2011-12 season. If Louis Murphy can stay healthy, look at him to make plays as well. I’m going to need more improvement from WR Heyward-Bey and CB Van Dyke, these guys stay getting punished on the field. Van Dyke has been thrown into a pool with no NFL experience but he better learn to swim and FAST. I’m ready for Oakland to get back out here and show that they are capable of holding down a winning record with the system in place. Even if everyone is counting them out.. then again who counts them in?
I’ve got my eye on: RB Taiwan Jones and WR Denarius Moore as well as T Joseph Barksdale.
Oaklands season opener is Monday night against the stanking Denver Broncos at Mile High Stadium. You’re either the Beast or Feast out here. I say we walk out as BEAST!
