The NFL website is almost certain your team will suck. In fact your team is so bad they aren't actually sure who is going to really start anywhere save a few positions

[Oakland Raiders: Who is going to start ... everywhere?


Most teams have a few starting positions up for grabs in training camp. In Oakland, it's easier to name the guys we know will start. On offense, it's running back Darren McFadden, left tackle Jared Veldheer, wide receiver Denarius Moore and center Stefen Wisniewski. (Please add a mental "if healthy" disclaimer after McFadden and Moore.) The other seven spots, including quarterback, are up for grabs.

On defense, the only players we know are starting: defensive end Lamarr Houston, safety Charles Woodson, safety Tyvon Branch and rookie cornerback D.J. Hayden. We can guess who will start elsewhere, but the front seven mostly is up for grabs.

Matt Flynn's ability to take charge of this team will be the focus in August, but this is a roster with questions just about everywhere.]

So it appears that everyone (to include Oakland beat writers) who writes about this team (even bloggers) feels that they are going to be a complete train wreck save one washed up science fiction writer. The apparent opinion of this fool is that the Raiders are going to do the unprecedented. Be the only NFL team to pay guys nearly as much not to play for them and actually win. Don't put any money on it fake Gene Roddenberry. I would hate to see you end up in the poor house.
