Well, the Raiders have reached the goal that I had set for them this year. To double theirs wins, at a minimum, and defeat at least one conference rival. Behind Justin Fargas' amazing resurgence they havebecome an almost average offense in the NFL! I'm glad for Fargas, I always liked him and he has a fun story as a player. He finally put on the weight most people felt he needed for years and has, for the most part, maintained that flashy speed. The rotation of QBs seems to feel more comfortable and the play book has been opened up a little bit so defenses don't have to prepare for one of four plays.
Near the end of the season the Raiders are flashing some life that is finally making their fans a little proud again. That said, what are the next steps to regaining the upper echelons of the sport? Who gets let go? What free agents do we look at? What are our targetted positions in the draft? Do any coaching changes need to be made? What needs to be the plan for next year? Does the team focus on its new found rushing strength and build on that? Does the team look at picking up another WR to bolster a middling pass attack? More offensive linemen? More defensive linemen to stop allowing so much rushing?
Just win, baby.
