    I see a 10-6 if all goes well, but 9-7 could be it. Raiders all the way, love the way the team looks this year and our direction moving forward.

  • raidernation

    all we can do is just cross our fingers and hope for the best.. I see it 14-2′ home field advantage AFC ELITE ALL THE WAY

    • Randus

      14/2?? A little too optimistic with that bro..7/9 – 9/7.. i see losses to DEN and SD at least once (they both got better this offseason).. at NE and SEA.. SF is like the second best team in the whole league still. AZ (who had a playoff record) and KC (who still has jamaal charles last I checked) are no gimmies either. RAIDERS for LIFE… but lets be real and temper our enthusiasm.. If we can get to 8/8.. thats a great start but I think 9/7 or 10/6 maybe is more realistic as hoping for the best.

      • Jim Stack

        Jamaal Charles did not run well against oak last year.. that big game was all screen passes due to lbs having to all out blitz. Won’t happen this year with a pass rush. SF will not be there this year (first one to say that). 9-7 10-6

  • Jrruiz

    7-9 if lucky a lot of tough games this year . But that’s still an improvement considering the last 4-12 seasons

    • james

      I’d say 9-7 they will shock alot of people this season and the defense will be top notch still up in the air on the offense if quarter back can have a good season sky’s the limit for the offense.

  • bigninaross

    We will definitely be top notch this year! The sky’s the limit! 11-5! #TheOnlyNation #RaiderNation #ALLIN

    If Matt gets his mojo back. With dat o line no one will stop are run game witch will in turn open up are passing game. We have a perfect mix of wide outs. Route, slant, deep threat. Thats alot to handle for any defense. Then they say defense wins games. And ours is looking like the best in the west. I say 10-6 if we can get matt off to a good start. If he doesnt perform it could be a long season.
