    I don’t think even Indy, Jacksonville or Miami, Cleveland, Tampa, or Miami beatwriters would come out with a prediction for last place, as a pre-season prediction.

  • theghostronin79

    The hater line is getting awfully long. I love it. All pressure on the Donks.

    =====================
    OH YEAH…..The pressure fell on them the SECOND Manning stepped in the building. Expectations just blasted through the roof. Anything less than conference Championship for them is gonna be a total loss.
    Burn Baby BURN…… I think the Donks will not live up.
    And the Raiders will leave alot of teams going “WTF just happened? I thought we were supposed to be playing the Raiders today, and we just got our A$$es Pounded.”

  • DJ Johnny

    By predicting us to be 4th, Cork is basically saying the Raiders suck…period.

    On the next chat he should be hammered with questions asking him to explain WHY?…since this is what he really thinks.

    No more BS of “well the division is wide open and sure the Raiders can win”. No…tell us all the reasons we suck and don’t sugarcoat it for us.

    He’s an unbiased writer so give it to us.

  • The Big Banana

    Why do you guys get so worked up over predictions? Let them drink up that hater-aid and enjoy the fact that nobody will be expecting anything from our Raiders.

  • guest123

    Well said DJ Johnny, Cork’s a hater if he can’t back up his comment with some objective analysis.

  • DennisAllensVisor

    Does it really matter what Steve Corkran picked us to finish?

    Honestly?

  • DennisAllensVisor

    If he picked us to take 1st you guys would be saying how credible he is…

  • theghostronin79

    Remember everyone getting all Butt Sore when Jerry would predict 5-6 wins at best? Everyone called him a hater but, at least he called it as he saw it with US too. We don’t need to be “Fluffed”. Just be consistent.

  • guest123

    Why do you guys get so worked up over predictions?

    No reason to get worked up if the predictions followed a line of analysis that is consistent. One day earlier in a chat, he tells us we can compete for the division, with it being so “wide-open”, the next we get a report from the same man telling the world we’ll finish dead last. Wow! I’m not upset at the prediciton so much as he should be more consistent. If he wants to blast the Raiders, go on record and give us a bullet list that explains why the 2012 Raiders will suck. That too much to ask?

  • theghostronin79

    If he picked us to take 1st you guys would be saying how credible he is…

    ==================

    I don’t think that’s the deal honestly. It’s more that he tells us one thing, then goes and says another. That’s the credibility part. Not that he’s gonna pick us to win it all like a Nation Homer or something. Just shoulda been telling us from the jump, that he didn’t expect much from this years team.

  • The Big Banana

    Motivation often plays a big role in the NFL. Be happy that all the ‘analysts’ expect the Raiders to suck. All pressure on Denver.

  • r8eray

    #307, no it doesn’t..what does is him feeding us all this BS and then going behind our backs on an other site and saying the opposite.

    Principal

    If dude thinks we stink then say it to face…tell us how you really feel about our team (not his) and don’t sugarcoat it either!

  • guest123

    We don’t need to be “Fluffed”. Just be consistent.

    exactly, don’t blow smoke up our a$$es.

  • DJ Johnny

    The big story today is the Wiz thing.

    What is going on?

    This is a pretty big story…or not. If he left for “personal” issues or a big rift with Reggie and/or DA.

    It could be an issue with working with Pollack. Or…maybe he hates the new “scheme”?

    Hope we get some insight on this.

  • The Big Banana

    @Guest #321. Maybe Cork does think its wide open but someone still has to finish last. Perhaps he feels all the West teams will hover around .500 with the Raiders barely finishing last. Doesn’t mean he thinks we’ll be 4-12.

    Yeah, we’re big boys. Not like it’s the first time someone predicted the Raiders to suck…

    Tell us why.

    Apparently he feels everyone else in the division is that much better…

    Again….why?

  • Marks hair

    Lol. Why cant steve make a judgment call without getting shlt on? He’s not a raider fan.. He doesnt drink the kool aid..

    =====

    For sure not 9-7 or 8-8…maybe 7-9 or 6-10!

    I say 9-7 with all the changes with a Wild Card!

  • guest123

    @ Big Banana 315;

    But even that doesn’t add up. Cork also said that all 4 teams in the division greatly improved. We would all colllectively cannibalize each other for a 4th place 8-8 or 7-9 team. That’s a load of variables to predict that. More typically last place teams are 4 to 5 win teams.

  • Marks hair

    How has he blown smoke up our a$$es?lol

    That’s all good. So instead of telling us all this warm and fuzzy stuff on the chats he can start telling us how he really feels and we can all respect him for his honest analysis.

    Was watching the Carson Palmer, ESPN piece and wanted to see if anyone else noticed one thing.

    Early they were asking him about how difficult last year was or whatever, and they show a quick sideline shot of him, Hue and Kyle Boller.

    And Boller is looking like he is trying to help him with some playcalls, and gives him the international “smoking a joint” sign, TWICE!!!!

    Was that Hue Jackson’s audible at the LOS signal?

    “Blue, 27, urkle purple, set go!!”

    ————-

    No wonder we were the most penalized team.

    Are u suggesting this might be abogus story?

  • Marks hair

    I think he is honest in his chats.. Did he say we would finsh higher than 4th in a chat?

  • theghostronin79

    Lol. Why cant steve make a judgment call without getting shlt on? He’s not a raider fan.. He doesnt drink the kool aid..

    ===================
    That’s why his insight is important, because he DOESN’T drink the Kool-Aid. His prediction of “Dead Last” doesn’t Jive with what he tells us.
    Just be straight from the beginning. That’s all

  • Marks hair

    330 so before he said we’d finish higher? I havent read that..

  • guest123

    @ DJ

    No, I think the story of uncle Wiz leaving the Raiders is completely legit. But Corkran isn’t nearly as responsive or take ownership of breaking news the way Jerry did.

  • fingers

    I wouldn’t put to much into Corks prediction….it’s just like the love Fest for Peyton manning I’ve been listening to all morning on the NFL channel… They still gotta play the games…lots of questions about all the afc west teams…. Id be shocked if they picked the Raiders to win the west…. I feel good about the Raiders direction …

  • RaiderRetribution

    Wisniewski OLines’ assistant coach cleared out his office, no longer on Raiders coaching staff;

    According to Raider Nation Times per cbs sports

    If it makes any of you feel better I predict we’re going to the Superbowl every year!

    It happened just last year. 3 teams 8-8 and 1 team 7-9.

  • raidertbone

    Hearing lots of rumors about Wiz (Sr.). Hopefully, we’ll get a new post later today or some type of press release through either NFL Network or Raiders.com

  • Marks hair

    Every analyst ive heard or read has us finishing 3rd or 4th in the division.. I think you guys just miss bashing herara, so you gotta go after steve..

  • raidertbone

    I’m feeling a 9-7 or 10-6 year. Holla!

  • guest123

    The 6 week “offseason” is over. What are they on furlough still. We should be getting new blog updates for coaching changes when they happen. Or is that not a newsworthy item?

    Twitter being down right now isn’t helping…

  • http://www.GodIsImaginary.com RaiderDuck

    Wiz is still listed as a coach on Raiders.com.

  • raidertbone

    My absolute best-case scenario is that DMac has a killer year and makes the Pro Bowl, but then he can’t play in it … but not because he will be injured, but because he will be in the Big Game!!

    If you leave it Steve, you probably won’t hear about it on this web site…but maybe on in other!

  • http://www.GodIsImaginary.com RaiderDuck

    If this is true, I wonder if Pollack brings in someone as an assistant o-line coach. Wylie would be too weird (and he has no ZBS experience), but maybe a veteran unsigned ZBS lineman as an assistant?

  • Marks hair

    On another topic. Im really disapointed that stabler has joined the lawsuit…
    I didnt know destroying my body would cause future problems…der..
    But the nfl did.. We want money..
