??AP Pro32 comments about Raiders??
NEW YORK -- Comments on the Oakland Raiders by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
OAKLAND RAIDERS (28)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 25) -- Need late rush like A's at end of season.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 31) -- One victory and no interceptions is not a good combination.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 24)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 30) -- A lack of depth and talent not making things any easier for first year head coach Dennis Allen.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 30) -- Last time the Raiders traveled east, they were pummeled by the Dolphins. This time, they're at Atlanta. Look out below.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 26) -- The Raiders are coming off their bye, but have not responded to the extra rest in the past. They are 9-14 coming off byes.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 27) -- Penalties aren't the issue anymore, but offense is. There's not enough of it.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 30) -- One day, in another galaxy, they will return to Pride and Poise.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 30) -- They had a bye and nothing new to report.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 28) -- If you have any questions if Peyton Manning can still play, ask the Raiders.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 25) -- Although they've gotten outscored by nearly double (125 to 67), the Raiders are still very much alive in the AFC West race with San Diego and Denver losing last weekend.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 26) -- They have struggled on defense. And here comes Matt Ryan and company.
