    offensive and defensive units ranked in top ten when ranking all units together. I don't like to read too much into this stuff by columnists, especially at this time of year, but it is somewhat interesting. It is also a really slow time of year.

    The Raiders have one of those defenses that is rated real highly on paper--and I think a lot of it is because their offense was SO bad that their opposition just didn't play wide-open on offense against them. Their rating as a run-defense wasn't all that great and they had fewer passes thrown against them than anyone.

    I'm definitely not sold on the Raiders defense. All they proved is that when they have the worst offense in the history of sports then their defense can place a respectable rating.

    Crisco shows he knows nothing by saying Willhelm must play in well of Donnie or the Run D will suffer. Donnie was not a strength in run stopping. We will be a better run stopping unit with Willhelm. The question is will Willhelm show the coverage instincts that Donnie had?

    I think the Raider defense is really solid. They've drafted well on that side of the ball lately. Very good cover corners and well-coached by Rob Ryan. They gave us all kinds of trouble last season.

    for all the bad things about Marty he was an absolute guarenteed Raider killer.

    I think Norv will be as good though; after having to put up with their crap for two years you don't think Norv isn't thinking about kicking the **** out of them?

    Yup. The Raiders do have a decent defense.

    With respect to these stats, the most important to me is SCORING DEFENSE, then Rush defense then pass defense in that order.

    If they do not score, we will win with our offense.

    Our rushing and scoring defense slipped last year and we were juggling linebackers to field a starting unit at OLB.

    And if Jamal goes down (as we seem to say every year).....the season is over. That sucks and yet nothing has been done.

    They gave us problems when we were banged up. Our only healthy receiver for that game was VJ. The Turds have a good D, but they don't concern me. We will put up 27+ points on them each time we play them this year.

    they do have talent in Burgess, Morrison, Howard, Kelly, Asamougha and Huff and they're good as a defense but I don't think I'd put them in the top ten units period. That's pushing it a bit

    Considering the way LT manages to shred them, I have to agree. If Norval actually manages to make good on the promise to mix in MT into the offense with LaDanian, then their defense won't be looking forward to being on the field, especially with a more seasoned Rivers and receiver corps.

    "Player needed to make unit special: Corner Antonio Cromartie can become an elite corner. If he does, it will really help the pass coverage"


    this is nice to hear
