The final dress rehearsal is coming!
I know there is a depth chart posted on the Raiders' website but you know that depth chart means nothing. From what I've seen of some of the starters so far, that depth chart better not mean anything.
If it does, the so-called "bully" Raiders' head coach Hue Jackson is trying to build will not exist during the 2011 season. This is a pivotal year for the Raiders who have some good draft picks and key free agent pickups.
They finished .500 for the first time in seven years in 2010 and now look to build upon that success. On this team right now, you're either are a part of building on the 2010 season or you won't find yourself on the field.
All I've heard Raiders' head coach Hue Jackson say in the last two preseason post game interviews is, "We'll fix that." From what I've seen so far, that means that certain guys will have to step up to keep their positions or for things to be "fixed."
