The season following their Super Bowl defeat against the Buccaneers was a disaster for the Oakland Raiders. Bill Callahan lost control of the team and ended up branding it the "dumbest team in America". Rich Gannon looked awful and got hurt. Tim Brown looked awful and got cut. Bill Romanowski looked awful and retired. Jerry Rice just looked awful. All in all, it was a season to forget.But what if history could be re-written? What if the Raiders could be taken over in the franchise mode in Madden and last season could be started afresh? What if Rich Gannon, Tim Brown, Jerry Rice, Bill Romanowski, Trace Armstrong, Rod Woodson were given another chance to RETURN TO GLORY?This is their story. And the story of the Oakland Raiders franchise for last season and beyond. They're a most intriguing franchise to take over in the Madden game because most of their star players (ie all the players named above, plus some others) abruptly retire after the first season, leaving the roster bereft of talent, so they represent a big challenge.The Cardinals "awesome dynasty" franchise rules remain. No trading (makes it too easy). The games are not played, only simulated, or watched. All player acquisitions are made in the draft and in free agency. It's all about building a franchise, and then watching it in action.
