The Raiders have a new offensive coordinator. The old one managed to make one of the best running backs in the league (Darren McFadden), look ordinary. We also are in possession of the 3rd pick in the draft which needs to be used on a defensive lineman. I would like one those big fat bellied, low to the ground, run stuffing, animals.
I'm also not surprised to see that we did manage to retain one of our 1st round picks after the Carson Palmer deal, either by protecting it or holding onto it. This is something I recall arguing about with a few folks here in the NFL thread season before this most recent one.
