Radiers Run/Pass Ratio from 06 and Looking at 07

JaMarcus RussellNFLGridironGab has posted the last season ratio run to pass for each team, as well as the teams outlook for 2007.  Here is a look at the Raiders from 06 and what to expect for 07.   

Oakland 55% Pass to 45% Run

2006: Oakland’s offense last season was more laughable than a Mr. T Saturday Nite Live funhouse skit. This episode aired and came out with an unappetizing grand total of five touchdowns and whoever the QB was, got sacked an amazing 72 times. It got more laughs then that of a 1980s late comedy hour with Eddie Murphy.

2007: Expect Oakland to run more to protect rookie LSU QB JaMarcus Russell from having to be put on his back more than 70 times this year. They should get a healthy LaMont Jordan and the addition of RB Dominic Rhodes will only help. I say the Raiders will still air it out 55 to 60% of the time again with new Head Coach Lane Kiffin.
