Actually, I'm sure moss will do very well with the raiders. They averaged over 24 points per game in the second half of the year once collins got a grasp of the offense. They did that without anything remotely resembling a running game. The O-Line Played Extremely well despite injuries. They will surely pick up a #1 back this offseason and with moss they should put up big #'s.
The Defense on the other hand needs a lot of help, especially the front 7.

Having a defence that couldn't stop anyone didn't hurt Moss in Minny, why should it be any different in Oakland. I think Moss would be the perfect fit for Kerry Collins, Moss is great at running for the deep ball and the deep ball is all Kerry Collins can throw.

I agree. Collins and moss would make a great duo. One difference though would be that Al Davis doesn't mind spending money on his defense, unlike red. I don't see him doing well with the ravens. I think he would really go crazy with kyle boller under throwing him all year long.

Yeah AL doesn't mind spending money. But his business choices have been dead ends for a long time now. First poor choice that pops into my mind is...that dallas cowboy that caught all those ints. in the superbowl some time ago. Signed him for 18 million+ and he was crap. Larry Brown?

This past season has proven how past his prime Al Davis is. Selecting and overpaying free agents with great careers behind them. Oh well i hope he learns his lesson.

As a Raider fan i want Randy to come over. He fits right in on a team filled with individuals who think of themselves very highly. Overappreciating their football value. Reality sucks and the Raiders sucked alot this season. Especially the defense. Phillip Buchanon is one of those guys with all the 10 karat diamond earings and phat chains. That has all the talent in the world. His character holds him back. Hopefully being in minnesota will calm him down...

He wasn't crap for us... teams make a habit out of taking old Cowboys out of their prime, and being suprised when they bust (Deion, Emmitt, etc.). :-b

Anyways, your description of Al Davis reminded me of another owner in the NFL... can't remember his name though... hmm... :-P

That would be a great trade for the Raiders. The Vikings are ripe for picking as Dread McCombs is want to dump salary more than fis his team. That means a lower paid defender and a couple draft picks and that Raiders are healed. I would play hardball were I Oakland and see if the Vikes want to get rid of two troubled players and try to add O. Smith to the mix.

I'm not sure if Jerry has another season left in him. ;-)

It would me. Besides the unpleasant thought of actually having to root for Moss, I don't think the Pack has anybody on the defensive side that is enough of a stud to entice the Vikes to make the deal. Not to mention the Pack has enough defensive problems already without giving someone up.
