They don't even have a system to make use of McFadden's versatility though. They drafted him so Lane Kiffin could use him creatively then promptly fired Kiffin for not winning immediately.

The Raiders totally piss away draft picks like no other team in history. They overvalue players for gimmicky reasons, then give up on them really early in their careers.

I don't see how a team that spins its wheels in place professionally could surprise anyone. Every year, there are tons of opportunities to improve, and every year, they throw millions of dollars at simply bad players.

I'm not disagreeing with you that the Raiders have some good young talent. You've just taken a sentimental truth about every team in the NFL (i.e. has young, promising talent) and picked the one team that is most likely to blame it's young talent for it's continued failures as a potential breakout candidate.

The Raiders model for success is to accidentally win, then find out what went right.

They did beat a TB team that was desperate for a playoff spot in Tampa. I'm just saying...

Re: 2009 Redskins Opponents

Why would you waste time trying to predict wins this time of year? While you’re at it why not try and predict the 2010 draft order and when players will get picked too?

Re: 2009 Redskins Opponents

I must say I'm looking forward to going to the Chargers and Raiders games. It's not that often that I can see the Redskins play twice in CA during the same season.

I have a question, why do we play the Rams so much?

Yup, just like when you guys thought you were going to beat the Iggles in the postseason or we thought we were going to beat the Rams, Cincy, and SF.

Correct...and that's a good thing! That is what keeps it exciting. Guaranteed wins would get boring quickly.

That's a bad thing. It means we keep finishing in the same place in our division as the sorry Lambs finish in theirs.

I'm not a newbie and I wasn't talking about you specifically, I was reiterating the point that you brought up that there are no guaranteed wins in the NFL. I'm sure a lot of NYG fans thought they could beat the Eagles, since the Giants had such a good season. Also, a lot of fans here, including yours truly, thought that games against St. Louis, Cincy, and SanFran.

That's what I'm talking about baby! It's good to see not everyone is looking for easy wins. Me, I'm looking forward to seeing if we can go toe to toe with NJG. I also want to play the Panthers and Tampa Bay who I hate. I want some pay back against Oakland. I had to treat my buddy to burgers at Nations when I was living out there over that one. Didn't we lose to Kansas City too? Pay back! Oh yeah, I want a piece of San Diego. Let's not forget, we have to stomp the shit out of Dall-ass this year.
