Is Maurice Jones-Drew's Super Bowl expectation with Matt Schaub realistic?

Bob Levey

During an interview on SiriusXM's Mad Dog Sports Radio, Maurice Jones-Drew indicated that 8 teams had interest in him but his final choices were the Raiders, Steelers and Patriots.

While the Patriots and Steelers have combined for 5 Super Bowls in the past 13 years, the Raiders have not had a winning season since 2002. But Jones-Drew still thinks that the Raiders can contend for a Super Bowl.

But is that a realistic feat? While Schaub has three 4,000 yard seasons under his belt. His Houston Texans were a Super Bowl favorite heading into last season and tanked badly as Schaub threw 14 interceptions in just eight starts last year and was benched midseason in favor of second year undrafted free agent, Case Keenum.

Schaub is preferable over Matt McGloin and Terrelle Pryor, but he alone cannot lead the Raiders to the Super Bowl. Other key additions that MJD spoke highly of were James Jones, Justin Tuck, Donald Penn and LaMarr Woodley. He noted that while the Raiders have a lot of young talent, their additions in free agency indicate that they "want to win now."

So, what do you think about Maurice Jones-Drew's bold prediction about the Raiders under Matt Schaub?
