Hello XCFL its me again J.T. “the Brick” your XCFL Raiders insider. Today well dive into how the Raiders are performing one season removed from a SUPERBOWL appearance.
Oakland sits a 5-6 after a horrendous start to the season. HC Doss is potentially looking at one of his worst seasons record wise EVER. His worst finish prior was a 9-7 season.
The Raiders have seemed to quit on the staff early on in the season and distractions from HC Doss fighting his Defensive coordinator Bill Romanowski didn’t help. HC Doss is an Extremely competitive person so rest assured hes not tanking.
This madden cycle has put HC Doss in a hole roster wise. Oakland traded ALL but their last 3 draft picks last season and let a lot of vets go in the offseason last yr so they’re playing with a rag tag group.
This yr Oakland has two picks in every round 1-7 and they plan on blustering this roster. The draft class this yr seems to fit perfectly with Oakland’s needs so this should be an exciting offseason.
HC Doss has decided to take a look at what he has on the sideline as he has benched vets.
Secondary benched – DRC, R. Melvin
RB benched – T. Coleman
After these moves were made Oakland rattled off 2 straight wins which is baffling given that the secondary has seemed to play better without the vets. So we will continue to keep a close eye on the happenings in Oakland being that they are only 1 gm back from 1st place in the AFC WEST.
Until next time I’m J.T. “the brick” reminding you there is only ONE nation, RAIDER NATION!
