At 4-4 The Oakland Raiders Will Battle The KC Chiefs For AFC West Domination

 The Oakland Raiders are playing remarkably well lately. It appears that the team has finally come together and they are ticking like clockwork.

  RB Darren McFadden has been gaining a 100 plus yards a game while the Raider defense has become simply fearsome! Opponents are feeling the hits, the hurries, the sacks of a defense that has really come alive!

  As for QB Jason Campbell, well he is playing at a higher level but is still only second string. It should be noted that a good running game will make a QB look even better. I had listed the example of Bo Jackson and Jay Schroeder years back.

   The way the Oakland Raiders are flying now, it would seem that the introduction of QB Bruce Gradkowski can only improve the offense and raise spirits even higher in the house of Silver and Black.However, since the Raiders are doing well with Jason Campbell maybe keep him in until he begins to falter.

  Either way both QBs have looked decent lately and when it comes to release, Bruce Gradkowski needs little time to get the ball to receivers while Jason Campbell needs the time. Tom Cable has already named Gradkowski as the starter and only time will see who is the better fit.

    A huge factor has been the youth of the Oakland Raiders.Lineman such as  Rolando McClain, Mike Mitchell and Matt Shaunessy have improved the needy Raider defensive line.The Oakland Raiders seem to get a sack every game and turnovers are usually in their favor. It has been a thrill to see this team go from basement to penthouse. They are playing like their legendary predecessors!

 In their last two games the Oakland Raiders have scored over 80 points! In fact, the last game was one that will go down in both Oakland Raider and Denver Broncos history! 59 - 10, the worst defeat by the Broncos.

   The Oakland Raiders are now at 4-4 and have a game next week against t...
