THE POINT AFTER - HOW TO FIX THE OAKLAND RAIDERS
I thought I was watching a preseason game between the San Diego Chargers and the Oakland Raiders.... even Boomer and Dilfer were in preseason form, it was boring listening to them, thank goodness this was a free broadcast!
But seriously, how can the Raiders salvage their season after one game? Here are a few simple ways to make this franchise competitive or at least entertaining IMO.
1. You have got to improve the WRs. If Darren McFadden has more receptions than almost your combined WRs put together, than there is something terribly wrong. Take another look at Plaxico Burress, Terrell Owens, Roy Williams, Lee Evans, Mike Sims-Walker and/or even Usain Bolt. Raiders have nothing to lose, and clearly McFadden is becoming the Raiders best WR, your Running Back should not be your QB's favorite target.
2. You know what you are going to get with Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart. It's time to release the best athletic beast on your team, time to hand the QB duties to Terrelle Pryor! I can't stand watching Palmer or even Lienart, but I would continue to watch a Raiders game if Pryor was the QB. There are 2 QBs sitting on the bench that would bring excite to the QB position in both their respected teams and would be difficult to defend, Colin Kaepernick of the 49ers and Terrelle Pryor of the Raiders. I don't believe the Raiders will go above .500 this season. Why not let your best athlete, who happens to be a QB, take a shot at leading the offense.
**Get another long snapper quickly!
This is a talented Raiders team, let's see them use everything that they have at their disposal, the Fans deserve a better product representing the Silver and Black Attack....
