It’s been twenty-five years since the Raiders returned to the East Bay and emotions are running high with a planned relocation to Las Vegas. Fans at Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum support their team unlike any in Football, decorated in Raider apparel on any given Sunday. Owner Mark Davis fired Jack Del Rio at the conclusion of the 2017 season; his replacement is fifty-four year old Jon Gruden. Raider nation remembers their new head coach as they architect of a Tampa Bay team that destroyed their Raiders 48-21 in Super bowl XXXVII. After making the postseason in 2016-17 expectations were  through the roof last year, can Gruden get the silver and black to the promiseland?

Quarterback Derek Carr led their eighteenth-ranked offense last season with (3,496) yards passing with double interceptions the previous season. First-year offensive coordinator Greg Olson is thrilled to have a chance to make some corrections in Carr’s mechanics; he did a masterful job with Jared Goff as quarterbacks coach with the Los Angeles Rams last year. Running Back Marshawn Lynch led one of the worst ground game in the NFL with 891 yards rushing, former Tampa Bay star Doug Martin could supplant “Beast Mode” entering the season. To strengthen things up front, Gruden drafted offensive tackle Kolton Miller with the fifteenth overall pick in 2018. All-Pro guard Kelechi Osemele will anchor a unit that must get better in both run blocking and pass protecting. Wide Receiver Amari Cooper also took a step back after making the pro-bowl his first two seasons mostly due to being double-teamed. Martavis Bryant was signed to the roster, but his conduct could determine if he stays in Oakland, Gruden’s ability to deal with troubled players could help Bryant. The bottom line is Oakland’s offense needed a new look, and they will compete in every game in 2018-19.

Forty-six-year-old Paul Guenther spent the last three years in Cincinnati with the same title and now joins Gruden’s staff, it will be different from Marvin Lewis. The Raiders defense allowed opponents (350.1) total yards per contest last year, and their pass defense ranked twenty-sixth out of thirty-two teams. All-Pro defensive End Khalil Mack has to help the secondary out but getting more pressure of the quarterback this season and Guenther will devise schemes to maximize Mack’s talent. Former Seattle standout Bruce Irvin could be the odd man out with a new staff doing things differently. Defensive tackle Mario Edwards Jr. Is getting better with each snap of the football and, former Chiefs star Derrick Johnson will help the maturation process of a young group of linebackers. 2017 first round draft pick Gareon Conley along with hard-hitting safety Karl Joseph fit Gruden’s style perfectly, and veteran Reggie Nelson has familiarity from his time in Cincinnati. The Raider defense will be aggressive and will play with discipline. Bovada.Lv, list the Oakland Raiders at 11/4 to win the 2018-19 American Football Conference West Division Title.
