Oakland Raiders: Players Who Have to Improve for Success in 2012

The 2012 Oakland Raiders will be looking to get out of their own "Black Hole" and do something they have not done since the 2002 season: make the playoffs.

After the death of owner Al Davis, Reggie McKenzie, former director of football operations for the Green Bay Packers, was hired as the general manager. 

McKenzie has quickly revamped the front office and changed the mindset of the organization. He hired Dennis Allen as head coach and put the daily operations of the team in the hands of knowledgeable football people.  

McKenzie has done his part; now, it is up to Allen to get improvement on the field.

If the Raiders want to compete in the wild, wild AFC West and make the playoffs, these players need to improve their play in 2012.
