Right, but all the Raiders need is a potent passing game.

Oakland Raiders' Offense is ranked in the league:

Scoring: (4th) - 26.5 points per game
Yards: (8th) - 366 yards per game
Pass: (20th) - 197.5 yards per game
Rush: (2nd) - 168.5 yards per game

Yes, I know how Randy Moss was in 05-06. However, Raider Nation should be willing to give him another chance if he is willing to lead the younger wide receivers.

He is one of the best in the game. He has experience and skill. And with our 2 (good, not yet great) QBs, Moss would certainly improve our 20th ranked passing offense to something much better.

A "reliable" receiver would take the pressure off the rushing attack. Dont get me wrong, the Raiders are a GREAT rushing team. But it is not good, when other teams disregard our passing game. It would balance the overall offense.

Who knows, with an already potent rushing attack, mixed with a "new potent passing attack", scores could always be 59-14 or 33-3.

Randy is one dimensional. He can run a fly pattern, a hitch an go, a post and a fade near the end zone. Overall he's a lousy route runner and he quits on plays. If your going to bring a veteran in then bring a guy that has a motor that runs on every play. If you bring a veteran in it's not always talent that you are looking for it's PROFESSIONALISM.

As hard as the Raiders have worked to cure "Locker Room Cancer" why the hell would bring a guy like that back?

Then, at this time, what other veterans might you suggest?

A change of ambiance can really change the dynamics of a player. Now Im not saying Randy Moss is the hardest route runner, the best route runner, or has the best attitude.

Im not saying that, because those are NOT facts. Facts leave no room for possibilities.

Now what the Raiders' do need, is a target for the pass game. Ranked 20th in passing is not going to cut it every game. We need to find a way to balance the offense. And here's an "opportunity".

Why not give Randy a chance, for the last 8 games in the season. Could it hurt the Raiders for having a "potential" passing threat?

Well, it's been done.

However, the Oakland Raiders need to boost up their passing offense to balance it with their rushing offense.

Rushing Offense: 2nd in the league
Passing Offense: 20th in the league


Come on!!!!!

I agree, They need a line that can pass block, that would help.and if Heyward-Bey would run crisp routes and catch the ball....

Another big win Raiders. Your run defense even held up well, which wasn't good for my fantasy back Jammal Charles.
