Raiders' Chris Johnson: We can win eight in a row


Posted by Michael David Smith on November 12, 2009 9:59 AM ET


2-6 record over the first eight games hasn't given the Oakland Raiders much reason for optimism this season.

But one Raiders player is feeling really optimistic.

Oakland cornerback Chris Johnson says that after perusing the Raiders' second-half schedule, he thinks it's entirely possible that they'll win their next eight games and finish the season in playoff contention.

"If you really want to look at it, you can go 8-0 and you might end up 10-6," Johnson said Wednesday, per the Oakland Tribune. "There's a possible way you can actually do it."

Technically, Johnson is right: It is possible that the Raiders could go 8-0. It's also possible that JaMarcus Russell will get an endorsement deal with Weight Watchers, Tom Cable will be named Man of the Year by the National Organization for Women and Al Davis will stop making personnel decisions as if he's trying to put together a record-setting 4x100-meter relay team.

But as for what's realistic to expect, the Raiders will be favored in, at most, three games the rest of the season: They're slight favorites for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, and they might be favored Week 14 against the Redskins and Week 16 against the Browns.

Eight wins in the second half of the season? Sure, it's possible. But even half that many would be a surprise.

perhaps he was talking about "covering the spread" - as opposed to winning 8 games in a row ...

I doubt the Raiders could even win 8 in a row in Madden 2010.

Just try to beat KC and stop talking about pipe dreams. Seymour spouted the same crap and look where it got him the next week. He went from "making the playoffs" to "Not beating a Pop Warner team". I guess they say anything to get those retards in Oakland a reason to spend their welfare money on a wasted product.

I could win the lottery jackpot twice in a row, too.

It's not actually going to ever happen, but there is an infinitesimally small chance it could happen.

He has to say that or his head coach(considering his problems) will beat the crap out of him.
