Let me start by saying that I am not a big fan of Shutdown Corner or Yahoo sports in general. But I do use yahoo and I found S&BP from yahoo and so ocasionally I do read something that catches my eye. And this piece from MJD at Shutdown Corner caught me.
Now I have no idea who MJD is but it was a decent article but what really caught me was the last bit.
"So it will be interesting to see what they can do this year with the restrictions lifted. Opponents might have a much harder time dealing with the Raiders defense in 2012."
Now that sounds to me like the first positive press for the new D from someone other than one of us Raider Faithful! Now make no mistake I believe just by getting a legit DC our D will be better than last year! And listening to DA and Tarver is really sounds like we may have a really decent Defense! Maybe not top 10 but maybe top 15! Can't wait to see what the new D looks like!
So What do you think Raider Nation? Is getting some good press for the D a good thing or a bad thing? would we rather have it be a surprise or do we want other teams to be wondering just like we are?
