Know Your Enemy: The Raiders

Hi guys, you know how this works by now. I'm Fish from Silver and Black Pride, here to talk football and the Raiders with you leading up to our teams' clash this week.

I gotta say, I'm a bit sad that this is the last time this regular season that I'll be able to have a reasonably civilised one of these (trying to converse with the mouth breathers at Arrowhead Pride can be an irritating and trying experience).

Here's the basic facts:

- Our offense is really firing right now, and it's led by our running game. If you want to beat us in our house, you're gonna have to shut down our two headed monster - good luck with that. Watch out for Marcel Reece (our FB) catching out of the backfield as well.

- Jason Campbell is getting better as a QB every week. While I still worry about him in a situation where he's forced to win a game for us, his chemistry with our WRs is coming along and he's beginning to hit the long balls.

- Our pass D does look better because not many QBs pass against us, true, but we still have a good pass defense. Nnamdi is Nnamdi (I doubt even Peyton has the testicular fortitude to throw at him regularly) and Stanford Routt is improving although he does make occasional bonehead plays.

- Our run D is also pretty good, and (with all due respect) you guys don't really have the running game to test us much in that regard.

Overall I'm hoping that we can get you guys to play smashmouth Raider football - if the game turns into a slug fest, I reckon we will win. If on the other hand it becomes a battle of QBs...I don't know if even JC's mother would back him in that contest.

My prediction? Raiders 27, Colts 21.
