You call acquiring Kwame Harris something that was well addressed? The guy has proven nothing but being able to draw a penalty on a big play made.
Javon Walker? If you get the Green Bay Packers Javon Walker, sure. But if you get the Denver Broncos one, have fun.
You're d-line is anchored by Derrick Burgess and Tommy Kelly... not that intimidating.
You're overrating your defensive backs. DeAngelo Hall is the most overrated corner back in the NFL. Some claim he's a top 5, he's not even a top 10. And I doubt he's even in the top 15. And you better hope Gabril Wilson doesn't turn into one of those ex-Superbowl champs that don't do anything their following year on a new team like Rhodes.
Also, say what you want about you're McFadden, Fargas, Bush combo. Fargas is good, but the other two haven't proved anything. So hype them up all you want, because that's all you can do at the moment.
And don't get me started with Russell. He played a couple games and played part time last year. So what if Jerry Rice crowned him as a good future QB? He, just like this whole new Raiders team, has yet to prove anything 'til the season starts.
I'm not saying my Niners are better. But I think it's common sense to say Mike Martz is an upgrade over Mike Nolan's playcalling and Jim Hostler's listening.
Now don't be biased and be real. Both teams have yet to prove anything yet. So stop predicting and take it one game at a time.
There's a lot of Raider hatred... in your post. But i gotten use to that from stupid Queen Nation, i mean your dynasty built by Bill Walsh was built on a lot of the fundamentals he learnt when he was a Coach in Oakland.
Your gonna be doing a lot of crying and sulking this season when Alex Smith dont deliver and Nolan is headed to the unemployment line.
Me, GSW United, Joel and Oakland Fanatic and the rest of the nation, will be spraying the breasts of supermodels with our Don Periogn and Moet cause thats what us champions do!!!
Raider hatred? Hey, you're just lucky my cousin rsxracer isn't here. If you thought that was hate, wait 'til he expresses his opinion.
And as far as Walsh "learning the fundamentals" as coach in Oakland, that's just ignorant. Why would you base one of the greatest minds ever on how he learned from his Raider days? He wasn't always a Raider. He had plenty of other coaching jobs before them. And even if he did took some ideas from the Raiders, he sure did a helluva better job at making it better than what the Raiders could've ever done.
And I won't cry when I see Alex bust. I already see the potential in that, so why worry about what has a good chance at happening?
Raiders? Champions? I'll let rsx do the talking about that statement. I'll just take it one game at a time while you keep dreaming big for your Raiders and only getting those goals crushed because you can't face the reality of your poor Raiders squad. My Niners suck just as bad as your Raiders, so no need to crown them.
