Default Raiders...0-16?

Has to be a legitimate question at 0-7. Their worst start since the AFL years & the remaining schedule is brutal....hard to see where they can pick up at least one win

I honestly thought they might edge Cleveland this weekend but apparently not. A big chance now I think of 0-16!

If it was a poll I'd be voting yes to 0-16. I think there's a couple of players there for a new coach to come in and work with but at the moment I don't see an end to the Raiders wilderness years to be in sight.

They're a whole level worse than all the other bad teams in the league.

Hope I'm very wrong though

Looking at the Raiders schedule, it's hard to see where they are going to pick up a victory.

They have both the Chiefs and Broncos twice. Have to go to Seahawks, Chargers and Rams and have the 49'ers and Buffalo visiting,

Only the Rams have a below .500 record and have major injury issues so that is the most likely. Seahawks are playing poorly but going up to the Clink and getting the win is a big ask. If Charles gets an injury then KC are susceptible but I would still back them with or without their main star. There is always the chance that Rivers or Kaepernick have a dud game but that is happens far less often now.

Normally you would expect a team to pick up one or two wins due to the parity of the NFL but the best chances seem to have bypassed the Raiders already.

I say they beat the Chiefs once and possibly the Bills.

I can't see us winning anytime soon. Just owing to the brutal schedule we have. I honestly feel we're better than 2/3 teams in this league but that's football.

What's more, this team is ten times better than the 2006 Raiders and those bums beat the reigning SuperBowl champs

I honestly can't see where the Raiders first win will come from. Probably the only hope is week 17 against the Broncos if they are resting players for the playoffs. Even so, there is no way the Broncos will take it easy knowing they have the chance to put a winless season on our record for posterity.

Would be typical Raiders though if they win a couple and mess up the chance of the number #1 pick. Can't even get tanking right.

The writing was on the wall when they gave payouts to too many players in the twilight of their career

I'll say again what i said in the previous version of the thread when a number of people said it was likely that the Jags also went 0-16. You'll catch someone on a bad week and things will go right. The chance of a 0-16 is just unlikely in a week to week sport like this.

I cannot for the life of me see any wins this season, this is embarrasing.
