This would be my starting lineup. I am putting the best players in my mind that can greatly increase our chances of winning.I will give my personal opinion on why i chose them. Feel free to let me know who you would play and why?
QB-JASON CAMPBELL-With some stability, he will prove why he can be a great QB.
RB-DARREN MCFADDEN-Coming off his best season, look for him to make a statement as the best running back in the NFL.
FB-MARCELL REECE-Dynamic player. Can see him bailing out JC several times.
WR-CHAZ SCHILENS-Has the potential to be a number 1 receiver. Think this is his year, if healthy.
LT-JARED VELDEHEER-Look for him to really solidiy this position.
LG-DANIEL LOPER-Did good versus San Diego. Really wants to be a starter. I think he can and will work hard.
C-SAMSON SATELE-Wins the starting position. Experience to lead the line. Becomes a great center with Uncle W coaching him up. Saw in the preseasoner against AZ. He was playing all out.
RG-STEFAN WISNIEWSKI-Great kid. Looking for his calling. He finds it in the right side.
RT-BRUCE CAMPBELL-Finally Al Davis sees his project on the field. He shows that he can dominate and show the world they shouldnt have passed on him.
TE-KEVIN BOSS-Zack who?
WR-JACOBY FORD-To keep him off the field would be an insult to him. He becomes our leading receiver.
AND THIS WOULD BE MY STARTING DEFENSE:
CB-STANFORD ROUTT-Not Nnamdi, but he holds his own and justifies why Al paid him so much.
DE-MATT SHAUGNESSY-Stand out defensive player. Leads the league in sacks. Mark my word.
DT-RICHARD SEYMOUR-Shows what it truly means to be a Raider leader.
DT-TOMMY KELLY-Leads the team in sacks with 11.
DE-LAMAR HOUSTON-Becomes a threat to anyone on the offensive side of the line. Expect him to make key plays.
CB-CHRIS JOHNSON-Had a down year. Bounces back and really shows he can be counted on when it counts.
OLB-KAMERON WIMBLEY-Look for him to show that last season was just a warm up.
MLB-ROLANDO MCCLAIN-Becomes a vocal leader. Really starts to show some of that Ray Lewis presence when runners try to run on him.
OLB-TRAVIS GOETHEL-See great potential, needs to remain healthy.
FS-MICHAEL HUFF-With Rod Woodson the sky is the limit. Came off his best year.
SS-TYVON BRANCH- Led the team in tackles.Had an off year, but he will bounce back.
Feel free to critique any selections. I think there was a reason why Al Davis kept so many players. Unfortunately we couldnt keep all but we move on now. Like Hue says, Next Man Up!!
