The Monday's Part 1: The Oakland Raiders

Happy Monday, everybody. We're almost done with the preview's of 32 NFL teams. Today we'll profile the final team in the AFC West. This morning, we have the Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders finished the 2006 season in dead last in the NFL, winning only two games. With their first pick, they drafted LSU QB JaMarcus Russell, in the 2007 NFL Draft. Russell remains unsigned and did not report to Raiders camp.

The Raiders open up the regular season at home, as they face the bottom-dwellers of the NFC North, the Detroit Lions. At home, they'll also face the Cleveland Browns, the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts.

On the road, the Raiders will face the Tennessee Titans, the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings.

Time for those burnin yearbook style questions:
  1. Most likely to start at QB for Raiders this year: Josh McCown
  2. Will JaMarcus Russell sign this season: Probably
  3. Will he ever sign: Yes
  4. Leading rusher for Raiders this year: Justin Fargas (Huggy Bear's son due for a great year)
  5. Raiders defense: Will have a field day with Rivers, Cutler and Huard
  6. Defense will struggle against: Tomlinson, Johnson and whoever the hell is running the football for the Broncos
  7. 'Kiss' song that best describes the team: 'Goin Blind'
  8. In 2007, the Raiders will go: 6-10

I'll be back later with a team from the AFC East.
