This week’s episode of Two Deep Zone on 1530 Homer with former NFL players Artrell Hawkins and Charles Fisher included not only some eye-opening remarks from Seahawks receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh, but also a jaw-dropping prediction from Raiders defensive lineman Richard Seymour.
Seymour says that the Raiders are going to the playoffs.
“You can mark it down,” Seymour said. “The Raiders will be in the playoffs in 2009.”
(Upon hearing the prediction, the NFL asked Seymour to submit to reasonable-cause drug testing.)
It’s really not a completely ridiculous suggestion. At 2-4, the Raiders are only a game behind the logjam of teams jockeying for the No. 6 seed. Currently, the Ravens, Jets, Jaguars, and Texans are 3-3. The Dolphins and Chargers are 2-3.
