Inside Bay Area has become one of my main sources for Oakland Raiders info, and Jerry McDonald does such a good job combining fact based reporting, and sound editorial (opinionated) like writing.

Here is what he posted yesterday.

"The Raiders didn’t look anything like a 2-5 team following practice Friday, with coach Lane Kiffin springing for individual-sized pizzas for everyone on the team.You’d think a team with a 17-54 record over the past four-plus seasons would be wary and looking around every corner just to see what could go wrong next.Not so, says the Raiders newest acquisition.It doesn’t seem like a 2-5 team to me,” wide receiver Tim Dwight said. “There’s a lot of spirit, people have a good time out there, but they go to work. Their record doesn’t represent what it feels like out there. It’s been pretty fun the last two days.”"
