We are hated so much that if we would win the next 10 superbowls we still be rated 32. we had a dry spell but lets be real 3 super bowls and five shows , the chargers and donkeys cant say that.
32nd? Really? The Browns, Jaguars, Vikings, Texans, and Dolphins don't see to me to be better than the Raiders, on paper of course. The Titans lost Chris Johnson and have a new coach in Ken Whisenhunt. Unless Kurt Warner is his QB again like in Arizona, not sure how the Titan are gonna score points or stop anyone after losing Verner to TB. Jaguars and Browns have a worse QB situation than the Raiders and the Raiders have better RBs than either team. Once again on paper. Texans got worse at QB with a rookie head coach that is transitioning offense and defense from a 3-4 to 4-3 I believe. Viks have Peterson and that is it. Ponder? Cassel? Really? The Dolphins may have worse offensive talent than the Raiders and their defense, besides Cameron Wake, has underachieved or is overrated. Raiders should be like 27th or so I feel.
Typical PFT hatred of the Raiders. What do you base this on other than a large roster turnover? Just as a reminder, that roster turnover was a bunch of UDFA's and unproven players for proven winners. Just sayin!
If the Raiders were to win the Super bowl, they would still be ranked #32 by PFT the following spring. Logically, it would make sense to rank the #32 team from last season as the next #32 ranked team. But logic has no place in making theses rankings.
I got the year wrong....the one year when the Raiders had the worst record in the NFL. It was 2006, not 2004. By the way, even with so few wins since their Superbowl loss against Tampa Bay, when you look at the complete history of the Raiders dating back to their creation in 1960.....I believe they have the 3rd best won/loss record in the NFL. No lower than 5th. Prior to this current dry spell, the Raiders were #1 in won/loss record for years.
The Raiders are predicted to have the worse record in the NFL every year. How many times has it come true? Once.....in 2004. When they drafted JaMarcus Russell with the #1 pick the next year. Every other year, there are usually several teams who finish below them. Last year they were #32 in the power rankings and 4 teams finished below them.
THE RAIDERS HAVE DERECK CARR AT QUARTERBACK IF HE WINS THE JOB I THINK HE WILL. HE CAN THROW AND RUN VERY WELL PLUS HE IS A BIG MAN WHO IS NOT EASY TO BRING DOWN I THINK THE TEAMS IN THE RAIDER'S LEAGUE ARE GOING TO BE IN FOR A BIG SURPRISE.
