Are The Oakland Raiders Super Bowl Contenders?
Huffington Post - over 1 year
The Oakland Raiders haven’t been to the playoffs since 2002. They play in the most obsolete professional sports stadium in North America and they might be moving to Las Vegas sometime in the near future. And yet, with loads of uncertainty around the direction of the franchise, GM Reggie McKenzie ― whose Raiders have won a measly 14 of 48 games since he took over in 2012 ― has compiled one of the most talented young crops of personnel in the NFL. Last season, with a second-year quarterback who used to be more famous for his older brother’s accomplishments than his own, the Silver and Black went 7-9 ― hardly a reason to celebrate, but one of the league’s best improvements nevertheless.
