Oakland Raiders are a team in need of an identity

“We’re going to build a bully here,” boasted former Raiders head coach Hue Jackson at his introductory press conference. And a bully he delivered.

When Andre Johnson didn’t show up to Houston Texans’ voluntary workouts, speculation started to ramp up. As it turns out, Johnson, at age 33, isn’t too fond of the idea of a rebuilding.  Houston has just hired Bill O’Brien and traded their starting quarterback, Matt Schaub (and backup, T.J. Yates).  The talent of those two quarterbacks aside, that is a pretty clear signal...

Some of this is nothing more than false hope, summertime bravado that...
