The Oakland Raiders are in training camp for the first time in a while without Nnamdi Asomugha and Zach Miller. Many Raider fans are sick with Raider owner Al Davis for allegedly letting them go after overspending before the lockout.
If Davis is over the cap and no one but he knows it, he can and has always massaged the cap to get his men. I believe Asomugha wanted a supposed guaranteed title contender and Miller wanted Tom Cable.
I guess Shane Lechler was right about the hiring of Hue Jackson leading to free agents leaving. We all knew that Gallery was leaving and didn't mind but Miller's departure along with Asomugha's has led Raider Nation to hit the national disaster warning button.
In a previously written article, I revealed how Asomugha is the most replaceable All-Pro player in the NFL. Miller is a very good tight end but he's not special so we need to stop acting like the Raiders lost Tony Gonzales.
What have the Raiders won with these two men?
There's no such thing as a team not being able to win because they lost two players they never won with. The Raiders can still win the AFC West and if they don't, it won't be because they lost Asomugha and Miller.
Turn the page to sea how and why.
