The Raiders are getting set to open camp, and the biggest question about the team is going to be how will the team will perform as a club that is on the rise in the AFC?
Today Peter King of SI in his ‘Monday Morning QB’ column wrote about the Raiders, and had the following to say about it.
4. OAKLAND: They’re America’s preseason darlings, but are the Raiders ready to win? Everyone loves Derek Carr, Amari Cooper, and Khalil Mack, and the free-agent signing of Bruce Irvin to help Mack rush the passer was widely praised. But being loved in August and winning in Denver late in the fourth are two different things. The Raiders are talented enough. Now Carr has to make big plays with games on the line, and training camp’s not going to show much there. But chemistry gets built in the summer. Without Charles Woodson and Justin Tuck, now it’s up to the kids to take the reins.
