Charles Woodson: “I fully expect to be in the playoffs this year”

Raiders safety Charles Woodson told 95.7 The Game on Friday that he expects to be in the playoffs next season.

“I fully expect to be in the playoffs this year,” said Woodson.

I think the Raiders have a shot.  People don’t realize how weak the AFC is.

    The Raiders last year lost five games that could have easily been won with more veteran presence to prevent some of the meltdowns – not an excuse as they didn’t deserve to win those games – but that was the difference between 4-12 and 9-7. The Raiders are already a better team than last year and we haven’t even had the draft. the Broncos got better, but the Chiefs and Chargers haven’t done anything particularly exceptional in free agency. I also don’t think Smith or Rivers can repeat their performances of last year. Looking at the likely AFC wildcard projections, I like our chances for the playoffs this season – and don’t rule out a division run. A few wins with the champion vets we signed leading the way might give us enough confidence to surprise a few people.
