    My only real complaint is that all that Tom Osborne worship gets out of hand.

    It's completely understandable, given what he achieved with the program. But still.

    Awww, who am I kidding, looking for self-restraint in college football fandom? :lol3

    OK Raider fans, take your shot.

    I gotta believe the Broncos win this game. The Raiders are stuck on J Russell at QB and frankly, I don't see it. They blew a #1 pick on him and although he has a rocket for an arm, he doesn't look ready to lead a team in the NFL.

    The Raiders have McFadden and he hasn't got any room to run. Sure their defense looked good against the Pats, but T. Brady won't truly be T. Brady again for at least another month.

    The Raiders will take their shots down the field. That's been their M.O. since, like, forever. Just go vertical baby! Problem is, will Russell have enough time to get the ball off and will there be any receivers open down field when they do go deep.

    I say no. Broncos 24 Raiders 10

    Broncos are going to lose both games to the Raiders this year.

    I won't be watching this one because the Broncos are so pathetic that the game didn't sell out. :lol3

    Greco, a kudo to you for caring even when your team's not very good and your opponent is even worse.

    My two favorite teams are the Broncos and whoever is playing the Raiders.

    If you grew up in Bronco Orange you know that the Broncos season will be a success if they sweep the Raiders. It's really all I care about with regard to this dismal team.

    Last Thanksgiving (spent in Omaha) was horrible.

    "Now bow your heads... Dear Tom, Thank you for this meal before us, largely based on corn based products, The National Championships and your return to Athletic Directorship. We pray in Pellini's name... Amen"

    Thank you. I have no delusions that Mini Me can take this rag tag bunch of misfits and make them a SuperBowl contender overnight, but I do see glimmers of hope.

    And I REALLY hate the Raidahs...

    ESPN is reporting that Al Davis has banned Rich Gannon from the Raider complex because of some derogatory comments he made over the years as a CBS TV guy. Of course, just to piss off Al, CBS has assigned Gannon to do the game on Sunday. This could be the best action of the weekend now that Shanahan won't be there to glare at Al for the entire afternoon.

    Raiders spokesman John Herrera's comments were juvenile, malicious and undignified. They demeaned the franchise.

    In a way, how he responded is what is wrong with the Raiders' management and ownership. Petty, vindictive, no class.

    And it starts at the top.

    Some of my favorite tv moments were during the Marcus Allen years in KC... after every good play by Allen, they'd pan to the luxury box for a view of the expression on Al's face. Priceless.

    I watched Orton choke in every big game during his college career. He'll choke again.

    Raiders sweep.
