Sick of all those rankings saying Oakland will be the worst team in 2013? Let's do one of our own



Ok, so I was just surfing the web this morning, looking for some NFL news to ease my off-season-hunger-for-football a little, when I came with PFT’s Power Rankings first piece. And guess what, they put Oakland Raiders dead last. Yeah, it’s yet another prediction of Oakland being worse than Jacksonville, Kansas City, Philly, Arizona, Minnesota and Buffalo having little argument. So what I thought to do is to make an analysis of every unit and compare it to the rest of the league, and then try to rank the Raiders a little more rationally.

I’ll be starting with the offense, since they get the most attention, and my very first piece will be on the OL. I will keep QB situation to finish the offensive part just to give it a little suspense.

Anyway, I will try to dig into the numbers but also on the intangibles and try to figure out how objective the so called experts really are.

I hope you’ll enjoy this.
