    NFL.com personnel guru Gil Brandt chatted on Tuesday about the latest offseason moves. Read the complete transcript


    luke, ohio

    12:42 PM ET


    With The raiders moves in the draft, and this offseason it looks like they are trying to return to old school raider football do you see them winning the division this year?

    Luke, I am on record saying the Raiders will win the AFC West. I'm a little disappointed, though, in what I've seen this offseason from JaMarcus Russell. He showed up for OTAs looking overweight -- and the Raiders need him to be in shape and ready to play if my pick is going to pan out.




    This guy has lost it... :lol:

    That's their entire problem. Al is trying to relive 70s style football and it doesn't work well with competing in today's world.

    I'm on record as saying Gil Brandt suffers from the same form of dementia as Al Davis. How could anyone in their right mind look at that train wreck and think the Raiders are going to win the division?

    Gill Burnt out might start by perdicting that the Faiders may have a chance in hell to even beat the Chargers. I think he must have gotten his medical weed smoker card this week. Party on Wayne!!

    Don't you need to win more than 4 games to win a division?

    I found multiple references to Gil Brandt being mentioned as one of Al Davis' friends.

    Maybe he has been hanging out with Al drinking the kool-aid.

    Not only that, to believe the Raiders will win is to suggest Russell isn't a complete bust, and then he goes on to rip on Russell for showing up to camp overweight and playing poorly.....for the 3rd offseason in a row.:lol:

    Guess I see it a little different, granted I have an equal amount of hate for all the other afc west teams, but I do see the Raiders being in the best position to compete.

    They can run the ball pretty well, have awesome pass defense, a decent coach which means crazy davis will fire soon, a terrible reach for speed in the draft, and a fat useless bastard of a QB that will take an almost decent team right into the ground.

    Yeh they'll be competing alright; competing with the lions and bengals for ********* team of the 09 campaign.

    In closing raiders suck and go chargers.

    Al is thinks hes in the 70's. He needs to go away retire. It like elderly people that dont like change. They like the same routine everyday. and doesnt want to change.

    The run yes, Now that they have Lorenzo Neal. Passing wise still need improvement for the raiders. I still feel that chargers will take AFC WEST title. but do you feel that The Chief will be the next Broncos this season.

    I do think the chiefs will be the broncos this coming season; good but not good enough. They just added some ties to the patsies with Cassel and Peoli, so that will automatically crown them afc champs and walk on water status with the media.

    I don't think we are going to have as slow of a start this year but will probably be a few games back of the Quefes early in the year; by the time is all set and done though I think we take the division by four games or so, quefes second with oakland close behind and the broncos in shameful last where they belong.

    People ***** and moan that we don't make enough moves in the offseason but we have a had a great team that needs to bring home a ring; no more excuses time to make it happen.

    I'm sorry... I must be on drugs (more drugs than usual) - did he just say he thinks the RAIDERS are going to win the AFCW?!?!

    Somebody post that up at Chargers Park - it'll be sure to give our boys a good laugh. Holy crap man :lol:

    If this Chargers team plays the way it's capable of playing, we could totally sweep the whole division - KC and the Raiders will have an edge on Denver only b/c Denver still has no defense. With Garcia at the helm I could see the Raider offense being pretty good but no way in hell do any of those POS teams beat out the Bolts. Not unless there is some massive pig flu outbreak that takes out 1/2 the team :p

    Gill Brandt - it's time for your meds~
