I believe that the key to the Raiders success on offense will be to run! They have depth at the running back position and should use it to their advantage. The run always sets up the pass, and a good run game makes any quarterback look like a star! All you have to do is look back when Bo Jackson was on this team, and Jay was the QB, when Jackson went down it was all she wrote! JR has all the tools to be a star in this league, Paul Hackett is the man to coach him, and starting off the season by establishing the run will be to his advantage....then you can turn those speedsters loose when they put 8 in the box to stop our run!
The New Orleans game was a bit unnerving, but, its better to get thumped in the preseason! Maybe it will be the wake-up call we need! The Raiders have always been slow starters.....but I believe that if we start out the season 2-1 or 3-0 (all division games) we have a shot at the division and once in the playoffs...anything can happen!
My advice to coach Cable:
JUST RUN BABY!!!
