On the cover of Sports Illustrated: "Can Anybody Beat the Raiders?"

Where have I heard this before? Hmmm...let's see...oh yeah, it was last year when they said "Can Anybody Beat the Rams?"

Raiders = not cocky yet, I hope
Rams last year = cocky
Greatest show on turf? And yes, there are rumors coming out that Warner might not be in a Rams uniform next season.

What a dumbass headline. The Raiders are a very good team and very well could win the Super Bowl but they are hardly unbeatable. 5 teams did beat the Raiders this season.

It's typical sports journalism. And the Raiders ARE very beatable. Even their fans know it.

If the Raiders blow it this weekend, SI should be forced to print "Titans will win the Super Bowl" in big bold letters on the bottom of their next cover.

If the game went to 1,000,000,000 overtimes the Raiders would be more likely to die of old age first and have to forfeit.

Actually, the correct answer would be "the officials".

SI jinx aside, I honestly believe that the Eagles or the Bucs can defeat the Raiders.

This is a pretty weak year in the NFL. The Raiders are far from a scary team.....
