That is all.
WTF is with the low shots on the O line when the fat lady is singing. Its his policy to try to hurt the guys because they can't lose like gentlemen. Zero class. ZERO

FUCK THAT ASSHOLE

Chiefs are trying to fuck up their draft pick.

Agreed. Yes one could make the point that the game's not over until it's over but it does seem a bit bush league to bum rush the O-line when mere seconds are left.

My initial comment about Schiano was meant more for his strategy of taking whatever points he could when he could. I liked the way to congratulated PM on his pass to Moreno as he sat on the ground.

I like how the TB defense gave them the same look every play until the snap, then they adjusted - took some of the advantage-brainiac out of the equation

it was a more solid win than it was a flawed one

The Raiders wins were a last play FG v. Pittsburgh, a kicker's duel v. Jacksonville, and a 10 point W in KC. They haven't been close in all but two of the nine losses. Raider fans should wear two eye patches tonight.

Gabbert had a far better QB rating in that game than Carson Palmer and he's since been benched. Go figure.

not impressed....sort of

Watched some of the talking heads last night and they're all agog over PM and the Broncos. Not me. Yep, they're good but too inconsistant offensively to be able to win on the road against a quality opponent.

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.

Sorry, I guess my real feelings came out. Anyway, seems to me that I've seen some pretty interesting and similar discourse between some GB and Vikings fans.....

Yeah, but Vikings fans know their team sucks, with spurts of almost. Raiders fans have not come to that realization about their existing team.
