big_palooka Posted August 28, 2017 Share Posted August 28, 2017 It's safe to say, this team out performed last season. A lot of late game heroics. Given the schedule this season and the fact they will naturally come back to earth in some areas, if this defense doesn't get it right.... this is a .500 ball team this season. The offense can't carry this team against this schedule. It's brutal. Looking grim as well. We're basically hoping 1) the DLine can find pressure which it's shown nothing to this point 2) The secondary can cover (and we hope Conley is the answer and Obi can cover TEs. 3) Who the heck is going to play LB and be any sort of consistent? Lot has to go right here with that side of the ball. Prediction. Raiders are middling around .500 in Oct. Pagano takes over play calling. Talent is still void in to many areas to find success.
