In doing his weekly power rankings on Pro Football Talk, Mike Florio put the Oakland Raiders at 32. With this comment:
“The Raiders aren’t as bad as I thought they’d be. Somehow, they’re worse.”
It ain’t just Florio that’s down on the 0-2 Raiders.
“We suck,” veteran defensive back Charles Woodson declared after Sunday’s 30-14 loss to Houston.
“It’s disappointing. I don’t know what else to say about it,” Woodson said. “Like I said, coming into the season, felt a lot better about where we were at that point. For whatever reason, we haven’t put it together on the field.
