Who would have thought the Oakland Raiders would be 4-2 after six weeks?
The Raiders have had a very impressive running game this year, led by Darren McFadden, who rushed for 91 yards and a touchdown in a 24-17 win over Cleveland, and a passing game that has been a nice complement. Young players have stepped up, and the Oakland franchise looks to be on the rise.
However, I think this team is too inconsistent to make the playoffs this season.
First of all, the Raiders will have to get past the San Diego Chargers to win the division, which I don't think will happen. Not only that, but the Kansas City Chiefs have been playing much better lately, on both offense and defense.
Couple that with the recent injury to quarterback Jason Campbell, and I just don't think the success continues.
The passing of NFL legend Al Davis has made this Oakland team a feel-good story, but the euphoria won't last into the postseason.
