The Herd’s Colin Cowherd is known for making very outlandish predictions when it comes to sports, and he is way off with his prediction for the Raiders.

It is no big secret that the media seems to be down on the Oakland Raiders this season. Coming off a six-win campaign, the Raiders made wholesale changes to their coaching staff, and brought in a ton of new players this offseason.

To feel they could have a down year is realistic, however, some people in the media are being a little outlandish with how bad they expect them to be. One such member of the media is Colin Cowherd, who hosts The Herd w/ Colin Cowherd, which is broadcasted from 12-3pm ET on IheartRadio, Fox Sports Radio, and FS1.

Here is what his show tweeted out on Monday.

It seems like everybody is in love with the Los Angeles Chargers this season, so it makes sense that Cowherd would have them winning the division. However, this Raiders team won more games last season with an easier record, and some very inept coaches calling the plays on both sides of the ball.

Look, we know Cowherd is out to get ratings, but he is way off here. It may be Jon Gruden’s first season back with the Raiders, but he is going to have this team ready to go, and with an easier slate than last  year, there is no way the Raiders finish in the cellar of the AFC West in my opinion.
