This year will be the time of the Raiders. They will be this years suprise team. I really can see them jumping the Broncos and Chiefs. I think Culpepper is ready to go. This Raiders WR corps will be the most talented Daunte has ever had. Along with Lamont Jordan, Dom Rhoades, Michael Bush running the Rock. He will have TE Zach Miller that can bail him out over the middle. The Offensive Line is still a Question mark but, with the shuffling I think they are now better. The Defense has only gotten better as well. To think that they can't pass the Broncos is dumb. I know they made a lot of noise in FA and the Draft. But, they did not do much to shore up RG and RT. Cutler will still be going through his bumps and bruises. The Chiefs will have their ups and downs and if Croyle starts they could finish last.
The Key is for Culpepper to stay healthy the whole year. Which I think he will and the Raiders could be a Dark Horse coming out of the AFC.
Daunte has Renaldo Curry, Jerry Porter, Doug Gabriel, Mike Williams, and Zach Miller to throw too. This is actually his best supporting cast. Plus Rhoades and Jordan will be a good tandem. Watch Out!
