From offseason power rankings, to NFL futures power rankings to NFL head coach power rankings, the Oakland Raiders are in the midst of a mind numbing amount of negative press. As media outlet after media outlet takes shots at the prospects for the Silver and Black, one person has finally come out in their defense.
On NFL Live, Plaxico Burress picked the Raiders to go from worst to first, beating out three divisional rivals who went to the playoffs last season. Unfortunately for Burress, the shout out to the Raiders resulted in gun pun after gun pun on Twitter. Not surprising since people love to make jokes about the Raiders.
On NFL Live, Plaxico Burress said he thinks the Raiders could win their division this year. But I mean he also shot himself in the leg, so..

Plaxico Burress just picked the Raiders to win the AFC West…he can’t be serious. He obviously hasn’t seen much football from prison
