The comments have overflowed on the previous take, so I'm just doing a quick post to keep the conversation going.
It sounds as if Peyton Manning might land in our division, with Denver courting him hard, and Kansas City lurking.
How that might affect the Raiders depends on his health. The reports still vary. But if he's healthy, he's going to make the division tougher to win. If he's health, he's an elite quarterback, and elite quarterbacks win games.
It doesn't change my outlook on the Raiders, but there's no denying that it could upset the divisional dynamic, and not in our favor.
