Raiders’ Murphy says ‘buzz’ around team is real

Louis Murphy says the “buzz” around the Raiders this offseason is undeniable.

Heading into his second NFL season, Murphy had a difficult time describing the feeling around the Raiders this offseason, but told fans during a live chat on NFL.com Friday the offseason changes have generated a different atmosphere.

“There’s a buzz going around the locker room,” Murphy said. “Everyone is upbeat and ready for the season. I think the buzz is a real buzz — it’s not false enthusiasm. … Offseason workouts were great, a lot of guys showed up. I can’t explain this buzz. Everyone is energetic and excited because we all feel we’ll have a great season.”

That buzz — led by the return of coach Tom Cable, the addition of QB Jason Campbell and offensive coordinator Hue Jackson — prompted Murphy to tell fans he believes the Silver & Black will be in the playoffs this season.

Check out the rest of what Murphy discussed with Raider Nation in the full chat transcript.
