Sure, I'm excited about the Golden State Warriors unbelievable season. And of course I'm still rocking and a rolling to the San Francisco Giants third championship in five years. But never have I been this hyped in June about my Oakland Raiders.
The silver and black, with Derek Carr, Amari Cooper and a defense that's being built to shut down opponents and go the distance. Can't wait to see that linebacking corps under Ken Norton, Jr.
Tuesday, Day 1 of Mini-Camp. Rookie first round pick Amari Cooper of course gets the media focus. But this team will definitely not be about one man or superstar; it will truly be a strength-in-numbers season. Man down, next man up.
There's no room in the Bay Area for non-contenders. With the San Francisco 49ers veterans abandoning the team like there's a plague aboard the ship Santa Clara, I expect all bay area football eyes to be locked in on the silver & black in Oakland. While one team is downsizing in talent, another is building upon a solid foundation. The Autumn Wind is a coming. Look out NFL.
Just Win Baby!
