I am asking everyone a simple question do u see the Oakland Raiders Defence in the top ten? Yes or No? and Why? please let me know what u think.




I say yes and here is my reason why?


The line backing core!!! That is gonna be our key to success on Defence.


Our secondary showed up last year and I'm pulling for Huff to outperform his previous year .... I'm thinking hell get 5 picks tops and 3 to 4 will come against our division rivals.

Tyvon Branch I see him making the pro bowl this year he was robbed of one this year he had 100+ tackles and I think he was the only safety to do that last year!!

They are not gonna throw the ball down Nnamdi's way so that's leaves about 1/4 to 2/4 of the field out of trouble.

Chris Johnson just needs to be consistent and our Pass D will no doubt be in the top 5!!

Pass D top 5? Yes i said it top 5 and here is my reason why... Our X-Factor will be Thomas Howard he will likely be a backup and situational player.. What's his strength? Pass d he has good coverage skills and speed he just isn't that good against the run he will come in and lock up our opposing teams TE's and that's great to beat our divisional Rivals!! Antonio Gates and the others mainly AG!!


If our Run D is in the top 15 or 10 that will be a Nice progress from last year and definately 8 wins no question last year there were only 3 or 4 teams score more than 28 and most teams that beat us didnt score any more than 24 points so i am looking forward to this season!!!


Let me know what u think about that! and give me some insight!!
