NEW YORK (AP) - Comments on the Oakland Raiders by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):

OAKLAND RAIDERS (31)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 32) - Surprised that it's this bad.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 32) - General manager Reggie McKenzie expected this to be a challenge. It is.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 30)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 32) - They simply are a really bad team right now and as a former Raider, it pains me to say that.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 32) - Five straight losses and counting, and now a Thursday game against the Broncos. Just a complete mess at every level
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 30) - Carson Palmer has passed for 300 yards six times this season and the Raiders have lost all six games. Oakland has lost five in a row and Palmer has 300-yard games in four of them.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 30) - When they talk about the Black Hole in Oakland they're referring to the empty seats for the Raiders' Dec. 16 date with Kansas City.
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 31) - The NFL's worst point differential resides in the East Bay.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 32) - Mark Davis should have expected these results when he took over. The Raiders aren't quitters, they just aren't good enough and without McFadden touching the ball 20-25 times a game they don't have a chance.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 32) - The Raiders turnaround has a long way to go ... condolences to Dennis Allen and his family as they mourn the loss of his father.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 30) - Can things get worse in Oakland after a five-game losing streak? You bet - Denver (9-3) comes to the Bay Area for a Thursday night matchup.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 28) - Have they begun packing up the U-hauls yet?
