A Broncos Fan's Take on The Raiders: Warning This Contains Anti-Raider Commentary

I'm a Broncos fan masquerading as an objective journalist for Mid-Utah Radio in Manti and Richfield, Utah so if I'm blocked forever, I understand. Of course, Raiders fans have thicker skin than Chiefs tools so I think if you give my piece a fair shake, you might actually find (ugh) a compliment or two. Feedback will be accepted although I already have a pretty good idea of what it will be.

As a Broncos fan, I hate all things silver and black. Nevertheless, since I’m also a journalist, objectivity is something I should always appertain to.

It’s time for my report on the Oakland Raiders, a team which may have its best chance at making a potential playoff run since 2002.

The reason is that in a quarterback league, the Raiders made a wise decision in bringing in Jason Campbell from Washington. I’m pained to admit this, but my archenemies have done something right for the first time in years.

It’s not often when you can obtain a quarterback on the open market who completed 65 percent of his passes and threw for nearly 4,000 yards, but kudos to the Raiders for finding a passer with those credentials in Campbell.

Additionally, I have to admit the Raiders made a good pick in selecting Rolando McClain from Alabama.

Nevertheless, until proven differently, the Raiders are the Raiders and true to my Bronco roots, I expect them to win only a maximum of six games.

Denver has markedly improved this offseason and while the Raiders have stockpiled talent, such as wideout Louis Murphy and linebacker Kamerion Wimbley, among others, the losing mentality is hard to shake when you’ve not won more than five games in a season since 2002.

Well, Raiders fans, I am what I am so don’t be so surprised. I did compliment you a little so that counts for something.

Unlike the stupid BC$ where reputation determines what you are, here in the NFL, you determine your own fate without the meddling of computers and biased voters.

I will admit that the Broncos have just as much to prove as the Raiders. I just think Denver is a bit farther along and will be for the next 30 years or so.
