With only weeks left until the start of the 2009 season, I find myself very concerned about the defensive tackle position in the Raiders front seven.
Virtually nothing was done to put an end to the gaping holes where the run defense needs to be at its strongest. The Oakland brass are relying heavily on greatness from Tommy Kelly and Gerard Warren, which is somewhat—I won't say completely—illogical.
They are also relying on Dwaine Board and John Marshall to work miracles with a group of ragtags.
However, even if Kelly and Warren play great...who is going to back them up when they get winded?
Are they going to put Terdell (the Turd) Sands in there, or do they go with an unproven rookie like Desmond Bryant?
I don't know, perhaps Ryan Boschetti and and William Joseph could shed some light on it for me, then again, perhaps not!
Where are we at now, like seven weeks to go before the start of live action that counts towards your record?
All I can say is that these six men mentioned above need to have a monster training camp and preseason to ease the minds of the Oakland fans.
