|ESPN.com: Oakland Raiders||[Print without images]|
The rest of Oakland's line is also quite suspect and they are switching from a zone blocking scheme to more of a power man scheme. While that fits Darren McFadden's running style much better, the switch was going to be difficult enough with guys like Mike Brisiel (a pure zone blocking guard) penciled in for a starting spot. With (Jared) Veldheer sidelined, I now expect Oakland to field the worst offensive line in the NFL -- and the rest of the Raiders' offensive personnel isn't good enough to overcome the lack of top-level blocking. As poor as Matt Flynn has been under pressure, this is even more reason to get Terrelle Pryor behind center for the Raiders.
