    I agree, would love a playoff run, but I'm realistic.

    Gruden starting over and he pretty
    much got a guarantee contract for
    10 years....so I can see what he is
    doing....as of now the defense is very
    Young; I think we will be better but we
    are not going to jump from 30 defense
    to a top 5....going 12-4 can be done,
    but I think we are still a year away from
    being a good team....we are going to be
    more competitive in games this year, but
    we are going to lose a lot of close games...
    Think the raiders can be a good 8-8 team
    in 2019.....even if we go 2-14, Gruden will still
    have a job in 2020

    Our schedule is very tough and the road trip from hell wont make things easier. So much for a last place schedule.

    Also good teams change quickly. But I hope the fans don't go bonkers during the learning curve. I expect a marked improvement, but a playoff run would be a bonus at this point.

    Learning curve by who? The players or Gruden? Defenses are easy to learn. Offenses more complicated but we've got players on offense who are good vets and should pick it up fairly easily. Cable and O line could hold everyone back though.
    I expect at least a playoff berth. Whatever score it takes to get there.

    we will improve by a full 7 pts a game this yr with all the talent we added on offense,that alone is worth 4 wins more and our defense has also improved as we added joiner,burfict,marshall,mayowa plus the draft,probably worth 2 more wins,that give us 6 more wins and a 10-6 record plus playoffs

    That's more like what I'm guessing.
