08:06 AM ET 08.17 | While the Raiders' offense didn't earn great reviews in its exhibition opener, this new week brings a positive take. Coach Tom Cable's desire to get tight end Zach Miller more involved in the passing game has meshed well with new quarterback Jason Campbell's penchant for finding his tight end on a regular basis. At Monday's practice, Campbell twice looked Miller's way on a two-minute drive, and they connected for a touchdown on the final pass. "I like it," Cable said of the chemistry between Miller and Campbell. "I really like it with that whole group, but those two guys are really starting to develop something, for sure."

I can easily see 8-8... after that, a little luck can always bump that total up a bit.

Its a all new ball game for the Raiders this year, looking better than they have for sometime.

Zach Miller will be a Pro Bowler in a year or two.

I hate to think that the Raiders won't be the butt of so many jokes anymore. Al Davis isn't half as funny when his team is actually respectable.

Gotta cheer for Campbell, though. He's had a tough time, and it would be nice to see a guy actually make something of a second chance.

Dumping JaMarcus seems to have done wonders for the mindset of the team. It's good to see Campbell getting a fresh start and being embraced by his new team.

" Chemistry?"...Isn't that one of the things that got JeMarcus in trouble. A buddy had a purple drank chemistry starter kit and ......

Very true about Campbell, he's a classy guy. Hopefully the crap Dannyboy put him through here will get him ready for the Al Davis show.

Al Davis was right about Lane Kiffen.

So it seems.

Throw it to Heyward-Bey damnit! I got him on fantasy roster for 2 more years....

Zach Miller is a solid TE. He should have a great year. Honestly, I cannot see Campbell getting it to Heyward-Bey nearly enough to justify that salary...nor anyones fantasy aspirations.

Looking forward to seeing the good things the Raiders can do with Campbell and the draft picks. But what happened to Grandpa Al? He's not his usual meddling, cantankerous self this season.

zach miller is an underrated receiver- the problem was that he didnt put up eye popping stats b/c russell sucked but everytime i watched him, he impressed me

Not likely, with the Broncos and Chiefs trying so hard to be there themselves.

Due to weather patterns, Oakland has had more than it's share of sunny days. Keeps the undead, I mean the Al, inside.

Anything from the Raiders going forward will surprise people since we rid JRuss the bust! Go Campbell
