What are the chances of that getting a ludicrous amount of comments? Much higher than anything else I’ve ever written. Why? I don’t really know; outside of it’s about the Oakland Raiders.

Apparently a Raider article will always garner a response not only from most of the Raider fans who take part in bleacherreport.com, but at least one 49ers fan that will respond negatively, and I might say rather immaturely, to anything and everything the Raider fans say.

In the end, I do appreciate the passion of the Raider Nation; in fact, I wish I could see even a small portion of it within the fans of my favorite team, the Patriots.

However, I’ll admit that I could really do without the blind faith some of the Raiders fans show.

I agree that McFadden could be great, but your quarterback is still untested, your defense still has holes, and your offensive line and wide-receiver corps could use some upgrading.

So let’s not declare anything too early. Let’s wait and see how well the team does in preseason, where we can all get a better sense of what they can do against other teams.

And if we’re going to start a string of comments, could we all try and play nice?
