Revival in Raider Nation

For a very long time fans of the Oakland Raiders have had a lot to put up with when it comes to the off season. Whether it is the head scratching free agent pickups (i.e Javon Walker) or poor draft decisions (i.e Tyler Brayton, Slade Norris and more). But I must applaud GM Al Davis and the front office for all the moves it has made in getting rid of dead weight players, bringing in guys who want to play football and making smarter and needed drafts unlike other drafts where they went for the flashy picks. The addition of Jason Campbell gives them stability under center and a proven quarterback which, is something they have not had since Rich Gannon. On defense, they made improvements as well with the additions of Kamerion Wimbley and Quentin Groves and the draft pick of former Alabama standout linebacker Rolando McClain.Last but not least, the hiring of Hue Jackson to call the offense will be very solid because he has proven he can develop wide receivers as well as quarterbacks giving Jason Campbell the consistency he has never had as an NFL quarterback. Finally the powers that be in Oakland have given fans something to cheer about and to be excited about this upcoming season, So I can say proudly “Just Win Baby”
