Default Raiders winless at the bye?

0-4 could be a real possibility.

After facing Rivers & the Chargers, they have to go to Miami, where they very well could lose, then have to face 2 more elite QBs in Big Ben and Peyton.

Not looking good!

Sure they could lose to Miami, but I don't think they will. Still, a 1-3 start won't get it done.

I think they could beat Miami. The Dolphins aren't very good. It will be close...

I'm waiting a bit to start talking crap on this Raiders team. They still have a stout d-line and a tremendous talent in McFadden if he stays healthy.

If McFadden goes down (again), all bets are off.

They should beat the Dolphins. We all have tough schedules except Chargers this week. Raiders just are not that good to win many games with this schedule.

Chiefs play the Bills, assuming it's a continuation of last year, they are awful.

The dolphins have a poor running game and a rookie QB. I dont think the Raiders will lose.

The heat and humidity in Miami always makes it a tough place to play early in the season. I think the Faid win this game outright on by feeding the ball to McFadden 25 times and forcing a rookie QB into turning the ball over. Oh, and if they are able to get that longsnapper punter thing down. Raiders get the win 17-13, but McFadden gets dinged up and they lose the remaining games mentioned.

Dolphins rookie QB so raw I think Raiders win this one. Seymore and Kelly will get in his face and he will make mistakes.

Dolphins look a mess. I think the raiders have this game assuming another snapper doesn't go down.

I don't see the phins scoring on the faider's defense. I think this will be an attitude game for the faiders too.

Those east coast trips for west coast teams are very tough. I say the Dolphins whoop up on them!

Which is a good possibility. If he wasn't getting a hand off, they were throwing him the ball.

GL wearing black on a sunday afternoon down here. And to add the stadium gets hot as hell with no wind movement.

I predict a close game, fins squeak by on some fluke play.

They've got Frank Tripuka's grandkid flying there. Not sure if it's a tryout or if he's already signed, but he's on his way.

Short week, coast-to-coast, early start time in September is tough for any team.

Like some have pointed out they do have the heat and humidity thing going for them, but they just look so bad to me. Another 3 Int game out of Tannehill, and they are toast.

Agree, but they DO also have a handful of talented guys still.

And I think Carson has what it takes to keep pace with Tannehill's INTs
