Charles Woodson Said What World Already Knows: The Oakland Raiders Suck

I'd like to take you on a trip in my time machine to a place not too long ago, May 15 of 2013. Late that Wednesday afternoon, Charles Woodson left Dove Valley, Denver Broncos headquarters and practice facility, after having spent all day with various coaches, training staff and players, without signing a contract.

Everyone now wants DA gone, but why should Reggie go too?

The future head coach of the Oakland Raiders has a potential franchise QB, a potential solid O line that will need an upgrade at LT, and some players on defense a new coach can build around plus $60 + million to spend next offseason and a full draft class. I understand Reggie has made some mistakes, but he's also has made some sound decisions.

Can the Raiders make the playoffs this season with Derek Carr?

With rookie quarterback Derek Carr not looking too shabby in his first ever NFL start last week, I started wondering, could the Raiders make the playoffs this season? As poorly as the Raiders have been managed over the past several years, like most NFL teams that have lacked a legitimate starting quarterback. They've really been a franchise quarterback away from being a viable contender in the AFC.

Raiders quarterback Matt Schaub not ready to retire

Oakland, CA, United States - Oakland Raiders quarterback Matt Schaub is not ready to end his 11-year NFL career despite his team turning their offense over to Derek Carr as he battles elbow tendinitis. But obeservers feel Schaub began losing confidence in his arm late in the 2012 season, with his velocity steadily declining to the point where he couldn't convincingly throw beyond 10-15 yards in the preseason.

Texans bring back memories for Raiders' Derek Carr

Technically, it was his brother, David, who suited up for the Houston Texans from 2002-06. But little Derek got his first taste of the NFL in those days, both on the field and off.

Oakland Raiders Head Coach Dennis Allen Needs To Take Handcuffs Off QB Derek Carr

Whether he intended to or not, when Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen opted to start the season with rookie QB Derek Carr over veteran Matt Schaub - whom the team had given up a late-round pick for - he made a bold statement. He hitched the team's fortunes in 2014 - not to mention the job security of himself and his boss, GM Reggie McKenzie - on the arm and intellect of their rookie quarterback.

Rattling rookie Carr likely plan of attack for Texans' defense

Texans coach Bill O'Brien will review Week 1 game tape, preseason film and briefly look back at college tendencies. Texans nose tackle Jerrell Powe will simply power away, turning to old-school football to answer a 23-year-old rookie quarterback the Texans and NFL are barely familiar with.

Texansa Andre Johnson proud of Raidersa Derek Carr

And, yes, the reality that the Texans will face a rookie quarterback Sunday who once traded on-field passes with the franchise's leading wide receiver and is the brother of longtime Texans starting QB David Carr is more than a little full circle. "It's actually pretty crazy, especially just seeing him now in the league," Johnson said Monday at NRG Stadium.
