Oakland Raiders: Will Loss of Nnamdi Asomugha Set Raiders Back?
Oakland Raiders Face Tough Road Back to Success
The Oakland Raiders made something out of nothing this season, but have turned the reigns over to new head coach Hugh Jackson.
There will definitely be some time for this team to adjust, but Jackson is the right type of coach for this team moving forward.
Unfortunately, they still have some instability at the quarterback position and they are not sure of whether they can trust Jason Campbell or not for the long run.
As for the defensive side of the ball, they are about to lose their best player, cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.

Nnamdi hasn't ruled out a return to Oakland, but he'll be able to cash in big time anywhere he wants with the front-runners reportedly being almost every team in the NFC East with the exception of the New York Giants who added a first round cornerback this year.
Losing Asomugha will force the Raiders to develop some of their younger, faster talent that they added this year as well as in recent years, more quickly.
Fortunately for them, Rod Woodson knows a thing or two about playing in the secondary.
They have the coaches in place, they have coachable talent, but in the immediate future the loss of Asomugha will set this team back at least one more year.
He's one of the premier cover corners playing football and can take away an entire side of the field.
There is no way the Raiders can replace that any youngster or even an amped up pass rush.
But in the long run this could do Oakland just fine.
