Default Raiders

They also have Parrella coming back as a an interior lineman, with the addition of Sapp, and Washington there D-line should be money! Offense is still a question, but with no dominate team in the NFL, I think playoffs, no problem!

no comments as i know little about the raiders. my remark goes to replacing 80 year old receivers. rice in 2002 had 92 receptions for 1200 yards (9 catches 73 yards & 1 td in the superbowl), last year without a qb & with all their problems he had 63 receptions for 850 yards. if they can find a qb & a runningback to open the offense up, he's still very capable. if aj can get 92 receptions & 1200 yards we'll have one of the best wr's in the game, that's if he can keep up with an 80 year old man ofcourse.

He was just saying that they are getting old. Plus turning 42 from 41, is alot different than turning 25 to 26. He will start to fall big time in my opinion. Mark my words. If he doesnt get knocked out this season, he will have 500 yards and 3-4 tds this season.

word.

They missed Jerry Porter on offense for awhile last season, if he stays healthy, Brown/Rice/Porter trio should put some numbers up for Gannon, plus with TE Teyo Johnson on his second year ( I think hes gonna have a real good year ), their offense should be back to one of the top offenses. Running game is a question though without Garner's running and receiving, but the offensive line has beefed up also, so its not gonna take a pro-bowl RB to make some plays.

yeah if gallery is as good as everyone thinks he is than gannon's backside should be well protected...grove is a solid center even though they have two pretty good ones...francis and morant are nice additions to rice/brown/porter trio...but their defense will be what's in question the most

Because they are old, does not mean they are not capable of still being one of the best at their positions. A great example is Jerry Rice.

well ... last year in week 15 rice had 10 receptions for 159 yards. the year before in the superbowl he had i believe it said 9 catches for 73 yards (might've been 5 for 77, it seems to have changed on raider site) & a td. rice & brown are arguably the hardest workers in football ... being 40 doesnt make men like that senile and immobile.
