Ask A Chiefs Fan - Raiders Edition, Part 1

Raideers Week!  Well, for Chiefs fans it is, for Raiders fans it's always Raiders Week.  As these two teams prepare for the first of their twice-yearly battles a few things to consider ...

* Sympathies to the Raiders and all their fans on the loss of Al Davis, definitely a major force in the development of the old AFL and the state of the NFL since then

* The Raiders are now without QB Jason Campbell for at least several weeks and it looks as though Kyle Boller will be this week's starter - how confident are the fans and the team in Boller's abilities?

* The Chiefs are going the season without Pro-Bowl S Eric Berry (last year's #1 draft pick) and without Jamaal Charles, one of the top RB's in the league

As with most Chiefs-Raiders games, this one promises to be an all-out battle, with the winner having an edge in the head-to-head department, although the Raiders would still be one-half game ahead of the Chiefs in the rankings.  A Raiders win and things are looking dire for the Chiefs, who host the Chargers on Halloween and have yet to play the Packers, Bears, Jets, Steelers and Patriots in a brutal stretch of games later this season.

As always we'll do our best to answer your questions about the Chiefs, and likely have a few of our own about the Raiders along the way. 

Here's to a great game and hopefully an injury-free game on both sides.  Football.  Chiefs vs Raiders. Just the way both Lamar and Al would have wanted it.
