lets not confuse telling a minnesoda fan "hell will freeze over, before you losers win a super bowl"

speaking of hell do they still have a sign up

, Didn't "like" Al Davis, but have to say I respect the hell out of him and what he did for Professional Football. He was key in developing the AFL. Key in developing the Raiders to a team good enough to hate. Multiple decades of good to very good football. Unfortunately his final chapters weren't up to his earlier work.

But, yes, I respect Al Davis very much.

Some caveats: They were missing key players on the O-line and linebacking corps. They [still] tend to play down to the level of their competition. In their defense they were playing on the road against a hated rival who had ample motivation to spoil the Broncos' record.

I marvel at how much talent the Raiders have on their team yet they remain a group of fuckups. Stupid penalties. Players out of position. Always underachieving.

Ten years since a playoff appearance and that was a SB butt whipping of epic proportions.

PM still throws stupid INT's.

But he also has lots of 300+ yard games.

And can throw the ball through the eye of a needle when he has to.

I think they'll need these extra days off in advance of a big game with the Ravens, a team the Broncos rarely do well against.

So, anayway, during last night's broadcast they kept showing images of Al Davis. This got me to thinking about him and what must be going through his dead mind as he watched the game someplace in hell. I'm thinking his version of hell is eternity in a small, orange-colored room with lots of photos of John Boy, Mike Shanahan, et al, on the walls.
I hope that is by design. Film study is everything in each week's preperation. Every player on every play is watched over and over by all future opponents. Its best to keep your cards close to your chest so-to-speak.

How many Raiders fans do you know? Hang out in a lot of Raiders forums?

Trust me. Raiders fans know our team sucks. However, we have faith in the future. We have a good GM. We have a young coach that is still developing but has shown some real skill this season.

We also have a significant amount of dead cap space this year that kept them from building any depth. That creates problems whenever there is any injury. There have been a lot of injuries this season and no depth. At all. 2013 has additional huge salary commitments. The Raiders are clearing cap space for their coming out party in 2014. The forums I am on all seem to acknowledge this. Of course there are the blind morons but every team has those. I mean, just look at Vanderbilt fans in the SEC. They actually think they are part of the SEC.

Don't get all snooty. The Broncos are a Manning post season overthink and a Von Miller injury away from being the Cleveland Browns.

I still see the same problems I noted before. PM and his receivers not on the same page and the D's propensity to give up cheap points late (insert photo of grumpy cat here).

Aside from that yes, I'm a happy boy and like the way Knowshon's running and that they finally found a way to work Hester into the game but it would have been sweeter had Ray Lewis been on the field.

Agree with you, especially concerning the late points. It is becoming too much of a habit. Need to stop using the prevent and tell the players that the game is 60 minutes.

if you analyze any other team as though it were your favorite....you'd come to the same conclusions in search of a bit more perfection from them.

Their record speaks for itself - they have been able to step up and get past their mistakes and subpar performance....and win games.


oh, and thank you SF for keeping NE from rallying back and winning. That was a nailbiter towards the end.

Thank doG they don't have to rely on Matt Prater to win games like they did last year.
