The Raiders picked some very good players in the draft and have added some quality FA's this offseason.Looking for them to getting back to respectability.

Campbell is an improvement, but not the solution. Run-DMC needs to step it up. DHB needs to improve.

THEY FINALLY PULLED THE INFECTED SCAB IN JAMCBURGER SO NOW THEY CAN HEAL PROPERLY. I THINK THEY FINALLY HAD A GOOD DRAFT, PICKING THE PROVEN COLLEGE PLAYERS FIRST AND THEN THE ATHLETES. tHEY STILL HAVE A LONG WAYS TO GO. THE DEFENSE SHOULD BE OK AND HOLD ITS OWN, BUT YOU CAN WIN IF YOU CANT SCORE POINTS. LOUIS MURPHY AND CHAZ CHILENS LOOK PROMISING BUT DHB NEEDS TO START PRODUCING. I REALLY DONT THINK A CHANGE OF SCENERY WILL MAKE CAMPBELL A BETTER QB, HE WILL STILL MAKE LATE HORRIBLE DECISIONS. I HAVE HEARD ABOUT A YOUNG QB THAT THEY SEEM VERRRY IMPRESSED WITH (SORRY I DONT REMEMBER HIS NAME) SO THERE IS HOPE THERE.

All I can find is that his arrest was a part of an undercover investigation. I just wonder how much they confiscated. Surely he wasn't arrested for a bottle of cough syrup he had without a prescription.

I bet the Raiders are REALLY glad they released him now.

JaMarcus needed the codeine syrup to make

drum roll please

"Purple Drank", 7-up with Jolly Rancher candies plus the Codeine.

Get your Purple Drank info here

Says it's a 'hip-hop' drink that has been around for years.

Sounds like a "Flammin Homer" to me.

My #2 team is the Raiders, so I'm hoping they do good. I hate to see such a storied team suffer the way they have been.

Watch the documentary of Lil' Wayne. He is drinking Drank throughout the whole thing.

Ifn it's any consulation? Last year they beat cincy and the Steelers with thier #2 QB,so,I would guess,they are gonna do better this year without a doubt..

In order for there to be a #2 QB, their has to be a #1... Oakland hasn't had one since Rich Gannon.

D-mac is a top notch rb when he's healthy. He just caught a bad break.

Campbell never proved himself in Washington and Gradkowski took over and lead the team, and his teammates loved him, so why is Campbell being handed the job? I think it should be Gradkowskis to lose.

Gradkowski was just the best of a bad situation. He, and Campbell both know who give the Raiders the best chance to win.

Hmmm

Campbell number one draft pick out of Auburn, QB'd the tigers to a perfect season in which they were robbed for not getting NC consideration.

Gradkowski, undrafted Toledo Rocket.

I like Gradkowski also but ...^^^^^^

FYI it was Jon Gruden who saw his potencial and brought Bruce into the league in Tampa Bay.

I think you'll come around and appricate having Jason run your team, if they can keep Al out of the picture, the Raiders could be great this season.
