After going 13 years without posting a winning season, the Oakland Raiders are back among the best teams in the AFC. According to FOX Sports radio host John Tournour, who is better known as J.T. the Brick, the Raiders will win a Super Bowl title in the next three years before they make their move to Las Vegas, Nev.
In an appearance on the Stokley and Zack Show on Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan in Denver Colo., Tournour made the bold prediction, and said anything less would be a massive disappointment.
“The core of this team is here to win a Super Bowl. They will win a Super Bowl before they get to Las Vegas in the next three years,” Tournour said. “If they don’t it’s going to be really disappointing. [Jack] Del Rio is coming off a 12-win season, they have [Derek] Carr starting the beginning of his prime. If they don’t win a Super Bowl in three years, that’s a disappointment. If they don’t win a Super Bowl in three years we are talking about a five-year run with Jack Del Rio without a Super Bowl. That’s not what he was brought in for.
I predict this team will win a Super Bowl, have a parade in Oakland, and then bring that Super Bowl trophy to Las Vegas.”
There is a lot to like about the Raiders’ roster. They have a franchise quarterback in Carr, an outstanding offensive line, a talented group of skill position players on offense that got even better with the offseason addition of running back Marshawn Lynch, and they have the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year in Khalil Mack.
At the end of the day though, it’s still hard not to chalk Tournour’s comments up as a ‘hot take’. Despite their talent, Oakland hasn’t won a postseason game since the 2002 season. Until they prove that they can win football games in late-January, the Raiders won’t be considered serious Super Bowl contenders.
