Colin Cowherd states that he ‘can’t buy the Raiders’
Colin Cowherd, the host of “The Herd with Colin Cowherd”, has been predicting win-loss schedules for teams in the NFL the past two days. Unfortunately for the Raiders, he predicts that they’ll have a disappointing 2019 season.
“The Raiders are just too much noise,” Cowherd said on Friday. “All sorts of pots and pans just thrown on a hardwood floor. They just acquired the number one diva in the NFL in Antonio Brown, they got rid of a great player, Khalil Mack, that made last year noisy. They got rid of Amari Cooper to the Cowboys, so everybody talks about that move. They hired Jon Gruden, who’s the number one NFL analyst at a network, he’s one of the more talkative head coaches. In fact, the two guys now running the organization are former tv analysts. They are moving to Vegas, and they have three draft picks in the first round, which is great, but it’s unheard of. They are built for ‘Hard Knocks.'”
They do have a couple of former big-name NFL analysts leading the team with Jon Gruden and new general manager Mike Mayock.
Cowherd explained during his show on Friday that sending the Raiders’ scouts home was unheard of and that it only adds to their difficult 2019 season ahead.
Their 2019 schedule looks very difficult. The Chiefs, Chargers, Colts, Rams, and the Seahawks are all playoff teams that the Raiders will have to face in the upcoming season.
We will find out how the Raiders will do in five months, when the regular season begins.
