Oakland Raiders 2011: Focus on the Offensive Line to Build

Speed is far and away the number one quality that the Oakland Raiders are traditionally known for. From Cliff Branch to Jacoby Ford, the Raiders have always put out one of the fastest, if not the fastest, teams in the league.

From 1960 until about 2003, that speed has usually kept the Raiders at or around the top of the league. Since 2003, the Raiders have definitely been the fastest team in the league but not close to the top of the league.

Aside from a solid quarterback, there has been a couple of things missing. If you look at all the great Raider teams, you'll know that they were great on the offensive and defensive lines.

Last year, the Raiders had a murderers' row of a defensive line and a horrible offensive line. The result there was the definition of average, as the Raiders were 8-8 on the season.

The Raiders now need to focus on that offensive line to make it great again. The moves they've made mixed with the moves I'm suggesting will make this offensive line dominant, making the Raiders a dominant team.
