This isn't our year Raider fans

This is the year that sets us up for being Super Bowl contenders next year. We're going to have cap space next year and a much more appealing foundation due to the fact that we'll win 8-10 games this year. Free agents will be more open to coming here as opposed to this past off season when we were just 4-12 and the same old Raiders from the past decade. Relax my fellow Raider fans, it's not all or nothing this year, we will WIN NOW but we won't find all our cornerstone pieces this year, next year we'll take the best players available in the 1st and 2nd rounds, 2 more starters along with free agents, and then we'll be a force to be reckoned with. This is probably the most excited I've been for the Draft in a long time, we all feel like we're ready to compete right now and adding 1 or 2 more pieces is all the more exciting this year. We're in a can't lose position for the 1st time in a decade, whether we get lucky and Clowney falls to us (highly unlikely), or we draft Mack or Watkins, or even trade back and pick up Aaron Donald, Draft day will be a great day for us, an exciting day where we can't be disappointed and even less likely to be shocked. We have a GM who thinks practically, so we don't have to worry about him drafting a mike Mitchell in the 2nd round or heyward bey in the top 10. If we get DJAX great, if we don't, we're in the same position we were before he was randomly cut.
