It'll be alright Raider Nation!

Alright guys, alot has been going on this short off season.  Never in a million years would I think that after finishing 8-8 Oakland would be in a downfall like it appears we are right now.  First, we get rid of Cable.  Yeah guys, I was pissed just like everyone else, but just like everyone else too, I think bringing in Hue would keep continuity...and I also think it's imperative that we keep John Marshall as DC.  But let's look at Cable, yeah we went 8-8, but what about the losses to Miami and SF?...just too inconsistent man.  Now here comes the news about Nnamdi, I really dont know what to think.  Why Oakland would put those incentives in that contract to void it, I mean, idk man.  It's gonna be a heart breaker if we don't resign him and I personally wouldn't blame him if he went to a proven winning team, he is about to be 30 and is running out of years.  He shut down half the field and fit perfectly in Oaklands system cause the man was straight shut down 24/7.  If Nnamdi isnt back, I'm sure we will bring in a decent free agent, not even close to Nnamdis talent, but we'll have someone out there playing CB.  Then on to all the free agents we might lose.  I don't see us losing Zach Miller, if we don't get him resigned I see him being tagged. Huff has been playing pretty well these past couple years, but if he goes, Mike Mitchell or Stevie Brown would step up.  If Gallery goes, we bring in a FA or see if Bruce Campbell can play after not playing for a year.  I think Routt could be replaced with another FA or Jeremy Ware.  If Bush goes that would be a painful loss just cause of his physical presence, but we could replace with him a rookie or FA with that same type of play, a physical back to spell McFadden.  And on to Seymour, I just don't see us letting him go after giving up a 1st round pick so he'll def. be back.  I just took a look at our main players that we might lose, all of them that is, and let's face it, we'll bring most of these guys back I bet.  But Raider fans lets look at what we'll have in 2011.  Our O will have McFadden, Reece, Jason Campbell (who will only play better next year for us, and who is in my opinion a decent game manager with an arm), Veldheer, Ford, Murphy, Schilens (finally was healthy the last couple games and if he can stay healthy, can be a No. 1 receiver) Z. Miller (we won't let him go) and our D will have almost everyone back.  ONE HUGE THING TO LOOK AT TOO IS OUR SCHEDULE.  We get NE and NYJ at home.  SD and KC both play at NE and at NYJ. Our AFC north team that we play is Cleveland, while KC gets PIT and SD gets BAL.  So out of the top teams in the AFC (oak, sd, and kc) we have the easiest schedule.  I think we'll be fine next year guys, I really do.  Let me know what you guys think.
