The 2022 Las Vegas Raiders are off to an underwhelming start after some lofty offseason expectations. Of course, that’s putting it mildly given the rough 1-4 record. Truth be told, however, many of those expectations were placed on the team by fans and media personalities as well.
The issue was that all of the above overlooked the litany of deficiencies that faced the team. At the same time, that’s not to make an excuse for these three players so far.
Going into Week 1, and in many ways up to Monday Night Football, the offensive line continued to be shuffled. Many, including myself, have pointed to Josh McDaniels’ track record in New England. He regularly did that with the Patriots.
Nevertheless, these are the Raiders. The depth of the O-line is not what it was in McDaniels’ previous job. It would make more sense to start the best five linemen and allow them to mesh, improve, and even. But I digress. As mentioned before, there is no need to make excuses.
Here, we look at the most disappointing Raiders so far during the 2022 season.
