Chiefs TE Kevin Boss who is a former Oakland Raider described 2011 as a strange year. He mentioned that it was up and down, and there was frustration. He indicated he wished he could have contributed more offensively when he was with the Raiders. Boss was interviewed on NFL Radio on Jun. 9, 2012.
Boss looks back on the events of 2011 and said that it was a blessing in disguise. He ended up with Kansas City.
He perceives the Chiefs as a more stable organization than the Raiders.
I disagree with this perception because major transitions in the Raiders' franchise can not be perceived as unstable if, in fact, they are goal-directed and there will be evidence that steady gains are being made toward those new goals.
Steady progressions toward strengthening the team under the leadership of Reggie McKenzie and Dennis Allen are evident. The progress has a steady and upward trajectory, and this is an indication of progress, not instability.
Change that has an upward or monotonically increasing pattern is, in my opinion, steady and positive.
Furthermore, when the Oakland Raiders encounter the Kansas City Chiefs on Oct. 28 and Dec. 16, and when they defeat the Chiefs, then that will be a measure of the stability of the Raiders and the new commitment to excellence.
When this happens, Boss and others will have to remember that they could not discern the emerging strength and stability of the Oakland Raiders new era in 2012.
