Much of the credit for the Raiders' 2-1 start to the 2011 season should go to Hue Jackson and the coaching staff. Then of course you have the veterans like Richard Seymour to show this young Raider team the way.
With the losses of Nnamdi Asomugha, Zach Miller and Robert Gallery, there are only so many veterans there to produce. Therefore, the Raiders have had to lean heavily on youngsters to carry the day to get wins.
If you look at the way they're playing now, it's hard not to think that a dynasty can come out of this young team if they stay together. There are some youngsters on the team that have really helped the the 2011 Raiders become a different team from the years of the recent past.
