They should just keep a two-man rotation at RB. Fargas and McFadden would be just fine. Especially with a guy like JaMarcus at QB who is very mobile and will move out of the pocket from time to time.


And Michael Bush... I'm sure Jordan will be cut at some point before next year, and that will allow them to keep McFadden/Fargas sharing carries and to give a chance to Michael Bush.

The running game will be fine. Is the rest of their offense what doesn't look as promising.

Javon Walker, Ronald Curry, Drew Carter...

All Serviceable Wideouts. Drew and Javon are pure speed guys.

Then we got talent and youth in Higgins and Sheilds.

But hey i've also heard we might throw the ball to DeAngelo Hall :shock: a Very talented Cornerback, you may have heard of him!!!

And Dont forget those short little backfield passes to RUN DMC, His a home run hitter.... Welcome to the Bigt Stage, Welcome to the Big Play!!!

I reserve my judgement on QBs until I see them perform on the field. There are lots of examples of highly touted QBs that failed in the nfl.

Oh yeah...is that the same guy that said this

"I can't do this no more," Hall said. "I won't do this no more, let me say that. I will not be a part of a losing team another year, no matter what I got to do, no matter who hates me, whatever. I won't be a part of a losing team again, not if I can help it. "


Good luck with that :wink:

It boils down to going into 2008 with atlanta missing Michael Vick he knows the Falcons will be perrennial losers

But Deangelo Hall is going to a bonafide winner in 08.
We got a Franchise QB and a Home Run hitting Running back... Our Defense is also pretty solid, once we address stopping the run (which should be addressed this training camp) will be in the catagory of Balitmore and Chicago and Seattle type good D;s
]
Deangelo knows well aware what kind of team his getting himself into... he's going to a team thats on the up. not the down like Atlanta.

So you are suggesting that the Raiders will have a winning record? Or that they will make the Playoffs? Chances are that is the only way you will get 100% out of Hall...

He says the same thing year after year, always expecting 11 wins. Of course, one day it's going to happen... :wink:

imo the best the raiders can realisticly hope for is 8 and 8
they way our division went last year we have a very slight chance of making a wild card bid
