August 8, 2010   ·     ·   Jump to comments

The 2010-11 Oakland Raiders are looking to improve on a disastrous 2009-10 campaign. For this to happen, the Raiders need improvements from every position on their team.

Ranking System
1= Push-overs
2= Bottom of the barrel  
3= Decent
4= Pro-bowl potential
5- Dominate against all competition
1: Running back: 3.5/ 5
Michael Bush averaged 4.8 yards a carry last year in his limited role in the Raiders backfield. Look for Bush to be more of a feature back this year even though he will share carries with Darren McFadden.
