Charles Woodson: Raiders are only “scratching the surface”

Oakland Raiders safety Charles Woodson admits that not many people have high expectations after a 3-4 start to this season.

“Of course, with the way it’s been here for a while, nobody has any high expectations for this team,” Woodson told USA TODAY Sports. “Everybody’s talking about the lack of talent we have as a team. Nobody really gives you a shot.”

Woodson believes they’re only getting started.

“I see a team scratching the surface, man,” Woodson said. “Your record is what it is, but I’m standing there and I think our record would be much better than it is. We have some very talented players. We have super coaches. We just haven’t put it all together.”

The crazy thing is that the Raiders are right in the playoff hunt since they’re only one game out of the sixth and final playoff spot.
