Darren McFadden and Marcel Reese Will Be Raiders’ Surprise Standouts in 2011

Everybody has their favorite players. This year I have selected two players who have great potential. Darren McFadden and Marcel Reese will be added to my list of favorite players in 2011. Jacoby Ford and Jason Campbell were on the list in 2010. Also, head coach Hue Jackson has my support.

Reese is said to be too big to be a wide receiver, but everyone believes he can catch the ball. Let's hope for some surprise touchdowns from a running back who seems ready to show his talent in 2011. He has posted some very positive blog comments to substantiate his belief that 2011 is going to be a very good year.

I wanted to tag this article on Reese's BR page, but I couldn't find it.

I wanted to tag this article on Hue Jackson's BR page, but I couldn't find it either.

Since Darren McFadden has my support too, I am expecting him to help create more touchdowns in 2011.

Many others are not discouraged by the preseason performance of the Oakland Raiders; let's just say that our confidence is up, and you can see from a video posted on Sept. 8 that Jackson's confidence is up.

Jackson is showing so much confidence that it makes me think that he held back some of his more effective strategies in order to avoid revealing some secrets he has on how to win more games in 2011.

So far, I trust his instincts and I look forward to many surprises in the Denver Broncos game set for Monday night.

I don't know about you, but I am going to be paying a lot of attention to the dynamics of the game because a victory over the Broncos will be an indicator of consistency and knowledge of how to overcome and defeat the Broncos.

Go Raiders! Don't disappoint us! Play ball!
