CSN Bay Area – The Raiders went 4-12 last season and finished fourth and last in their division while the three other members of the AFC West — Broncos, Chiefs and Chargers — all went to the playoffs. 

Things won’t get any easier next year, as Las Vegas oddmakers are giving Oakland the worst chance to win Super Bowl XLIX at 100/1, even with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The amount of stars that would have to line up for the Raiders to win the Superbowl, is so unfathomable, so completely bonkers that there is no mathematical way it’d be possible. That being said, here’s what would have to happen.

  • Darren McFadden plays the entire season unscathed (won’t happen)
  • Raiders get a quality QB (won’t happen, apparently they are looking at getting Matt Schaub)
  • Janikowski’s field goals begin to count for 4 points if over 50 yards (won’t happen because it won’t)
  • Raiders draft well (won’t happen as Don Geis’ daughter runs the team)
  • Raiders bring back Gruden as the head coach (won’t happen because he still hates them for letting him go)
  • Peyton Manning’s calcium deposits in his forehead rupture, causing him to seek retirement. Philip Rivers retires to become a minister.
  • Tom Brady pursues career as fashion model. Belichick indicted on money laundering scheme.
  • Al Davis rises from the grave.
  • Entire Seahawks roster busted for PED’s
  • Jim Harbaugh has aneurism in August and leaves Colin Kaepernick with nobody to show him how to read a defense or look for a second receiver.

With all those things happening, they still will probably only get to 500.
