    I wonder who decided to send Oakland into NewEngland and Philadelphia, SuperBowl teams. Did they have that good of a record last year?
    No doubt, I was trying to figure out why their schedule was so hard. Oh well, at least the Vikes got their first win.

    Moss has had 1 pass thrown to him inside the opponents FIFTY YARD LINE in two games.

    Nice.

    Re: Oakland 0-3

    I guess I would like this thread to take on a serious nature for a moment...
    I think there are a lot of questions that need to be asked:
    1. Why is Collins NOT throwing to Moss more often. Is he that well covered? Have opposing teams finally found a way to cover him?
    2. Do the Raiders not have as much confidence in Moss as they first had?
    3. Can Collins even throw an accurate deep ball?

    We all know that Moss is the best wide receiver in pro-ball. Even better than TO in my estimation. But his stay in Oakland has been a bust so far. Can someone please enlighten me as to what's gone wrong?

    Re: Oakland 0-3

    Moss is #2 in receiving yards so far this season, and Collins is #5 overall in QB rating thus far.

    When the trade was made, all the analysts said Collins could throw as good a deep ball as any other QB. Maybe he doesn't have enough confidence to throw it up into double coverage and trust that Moss will go up and get it.

    The Raiders will win some games, and Moss is going to get his yards and TD's if he stays healthy.

    Re: Oakland 0-3

    I love this stat, Green Bay 0-3, Oakland 0-3 and Arizona 0-3. Can that be any better?

    I know it was only 1 win, but I am happy that we are not 0-3.

    Green Bay goes to Carolina, could be 0-4.

    Oakland has Dallas at home, Oakland probably wins 1-3.

    Arizona plays San Fran in Mexico City, toss up game (0-4 for Arizona).

    It would be great if Dallas could pull it off and they all start 0 - 4, and if the Vikes could win and go to 2-2!

    I hate that they have a game in Mexico City during the regular season, play that game in the preseason!

    Why? it is not the first time, and if I was a coach I would be pissed.

    I do not think that they should be doing it in regular season, that is preseason stuff.

    I agree, from a coaching perspective it isn't the best situation due to all the extra complexities involved with playing in the largest city in the world.

    But, as a fan, I would have fun going to a game in Mexico City compared to some of the other venues.
