Four games into the season, the Oakland Raiders clearly aren't where they had hoped to be, having won just one game thus far.

After losing in Weeks 1 and 2, fans could write off the two losses for a myriad of reasons.

Against the Chargers, the Raiders' long-snapping woes cost them the field position battle and set San Diego up for easy scores.

Against Miami, Oakland faced a short week, a trip back east, exhausting heat and an early start. In fact, despite starting 0-2, there was still some hope in the black hole.

In Week 3, the Raiders lived up to the expectations many had set for them, defeating the Steelers at home despite trailing by double-digits late in the second half.

With expectations rising and hope increasing, however, the Raiders landed with a thud in Week 4, getting smoked by the rival Broncos without even putting up much of a fight.

With the bipolar performances exhibited thus far, it all begs the question of who these Raiders really are and whose to blame.

That said, we broke down each position group's performance thus far this season to get to the bottom of the 2012 Raiders.
