Yesterday as Just Blog Baby closed its extensive 2013 minicamp coverage, we sent out a tweet for our second installment of our newFan Corner feature where we ask our loyal followers on twitter and our blog readers to give us their take on their favorite team. With mixed reports from camp last week, we were bound to get some interesting responses and what we saw was divided expectations from Raiders Nation heading into the six weeks before training camp.

Some took the negative route after bad reports on Day One and roster turnover in the offseason. With most around the league predicting the Raiders will once again miss the postseason, it is not surprising to get some negative responses when asking for fan expectations come the fall.

@JustBlogBaby too much emphasis placed on the 3 days of MC. The national media have the Raiders winning only 2 games-hoping for no wins.

Yet some disagreed with the negativity, buying into the positivity of Dennis Allen as well as a new attitude from an almost entirely new group of players for next season including veteran Charles Woodson, who has emerged as a leader in camp and seems to be focused on returning the team to the promised land. That positivity has fans thinking .500 or playoffs are a distinct possibility for the Raiders despite what the experts might project.
