Oakland Raiders: Powerful Duos Like Flores-Craig, Wilson-Allen Can Defeat Miami

Good games often have great surprises. When you look at the data, you will see that there are some records held by the Oakland Raiders that deserve more attention. In fact, paying attention to what was done and what can be done just might awaken the Oakland Raiders to do something surprising again in 2010.

Powerful duos like Jim Plunkett and Cliff Branch must rise up again. In the game against Miami, there must be a strong pass-reception bond like that of Marc Wilson to Marcus Allen.

A little help from the Jack Tatum, Gene Upshaw and George Atkinson types would add "hot sauce and Tabasco" to spice up the game. In fact, from this point on, the spicing up of the games ought to be at a level similar to the hottest spice known to man.  Mild and sweet will not get the job done.

There need to be some very hot players on the playing field. How hot? Hot like this pepper from India:

"The hottest chilli pepper known to man is the Bhut Jolokia, which also goes under various other names including Naga Morich, Naga Jolokia, or the ghost chilli. This chilli comes from India/Bangladesh and is about 850,000 - 1,000,000 on the Scoville scale. That's seriously hot!"

Here are some of the "hot" historical facts:
