The Raiders are in talks to tear down the stadium next year

“Representatives of Coliseum City say they expect to reach a deal with the Raiders by the end of the summer that would lead to the opening of a new football stadium on the existing site by 2018.

“It will be critical to demolish the existing stadium in 2015″ if the project is to be finished on time, the Coliseum City attorney said.”

Raider Quarterback 2004-5, Kerry Collins #5

Kerry Collins #5 (2004-05) – In many ways seems like a Matt Schaub clone. Statuesque, big armed passer with a couple Pro Bowls to his credit. He even came to the Raiders at the same age (32). One major difference is Collins led a team to a Super Bowl (Giants, 2000).

He had two seasons in Oakland. The first he had 21 TD to 20 int. His second season was better with 20TD to 12int. On one hand, Collins never had a season as bad as Schaub did last season. On the other hand, Collins can’t really touch Schaub’s numbers before last season.
