Well, as a football fan, that wasn't the most entertaining game, but as a Bronco fan and life-long Raider hater, I enjoyed every minute of it.

Strange days for the Raiders. I hate to say it, but 80 year old Al Davis will have to die before the franchise improves in a fundamental way.
... they are like the Republican Party of NFL Football

I'm lost, is this a NFL thread or the F1 thread?

I won't be watching this one because the Broncos are so pathetic that the game didn't sell out.

I don't know which is scarier:

Dis-affected Raiders fans watching their team spend millions on terrible players and coaches?

Mal-contented Broncos fans looking at their team and knowing the other shoe is going to drop any game now.

C&P of a Tom Curran Op/Ed:

The Broncos are the most surprising. After an 8-8 2008 in which they crawled across the finish line, Denver went through the NFL’s most tumultuous offseason. Now, after Sunday’s 23-3 dismantling of the Raiders, they are 3-0 and looking down at the San Diego Chargers (2-1) in the AFC West. They’ve still allowed just one touchdown, that coming in their miracle, 12-7 win over Cincinnati.

The other show will drop.

Remaining schedule:
Cowboys - Home - don't think so
Pats - Home - Could be ugly as Bellicheck won't let off at all, teach Mini-me a lesson. You don't take on the master, son.
Chargers - Away - doubt it
bye
Ravens - Away - no way in hell
Steelers - Home - looking more likely all the time
Redskins - Away - I'll take this one
Chargers - Home - if its cold, there's a shot
Giants - Home - nope
Chefs - Away - They lost to the Raiders
Colts - Away - ummm, no
Raiders - Home - Unless they bring back Stabler, should be ok
Eagles - Away - Philly fighting for a playoff spot - nope
Chefs - Home - They will have thrown in the towel by then

I'm gonna give 'em the Steelers just because they are at home. There's a very good possibility of 8-8. If you would have told me in August that 8-8 was even remotely possible, I would have laughed at you. Still, not even a sniff of the playoffs, but I'll take it. Remember I said 4-12 before the season started.

6-10, that's my optimistic prediction.

No one has even scored a touchdown on the Broncos yet!

3-0!

an Apology

in advance.

While I think the Broncos have what it takes to defeat the Cowboys--namely strong defence-- I know that they will lose on Sunday. Sorry this is a near garuantee.

Why? Cause Jurgen will be there. Bronco's are like 2-20 in Jurgen attended games. Sad but true.


So to my fellow Bronco fans, I apologize.

Jurgen
