Dust Off Your Bulletin Boards

While many in the media are hedging their bets against the Raiders, acknowledging that the team looks improved, our friends at Sports Illustrated just can't help themselves, predicting today that the Raiders will go 3-13 in 2008 and will occupy the cellar of the AFC West, trailing the Chiefs by two wins.

In other words, despite only having to play seven games this year against teams that Sports Illustrated projects to have winning records, the Raiders will regress in 2008.

In fact, only one team, the Falcons, will lose more games than the Raiders. All other teams in the NFL, including the 49ers, Dolphins and Lions, will win five or more games.

Thanks to SI, once again, for some excellent bulletin board material.
