Oakland Raiders 2009

In many ways my life through the past 6 years has been empty. No playoffs. With each win, or perhaps more often- a loss, my life has spun deeper and deeper into a black void . Not a pleasant place for me- For any one.

I love the Raiders, their mystique. . .Everything.  And this cold spell brings upon anger and depression that. . .I better stop.

-Go Raiders ...

Oakland Raiders: Angst to Anger!


Lane Kiffin has finally been fired by the Raiders. The team announced Tuesday that Kiffin was released 'for cause.'
Once upon a time ...Pre Super Bowl 2002 - The Oakland Raiders were a team with mystique.  Those days are gone- Long gone my fellow compatriots of the Raider Nation.   With the firing of Lane Kiffin, hope has been lost for this year.  Sure JaMarcus Russell will continue his development into a future All-Pro, but this season, to me is gone.

The constant angst I've felt has left me depressed every Sunday until the optimist in me arose for the next weekend.  No More     Not this year.

Was Kiffin a good coach for the Raiders?  We'll never know but I liked the way the team appeared to be gel'n.  Until the end of the season and a new permanent Head Coach is in place, I'm taking a sabaticle. 

Go Raiders.

Al Davis- What is wrong with you, man?

Look Out Lane Kiffin

To me it appears next Sunday is Lane's last day as the Oakland Raiders head coach.  If Oakland does somehow go into the the bye week with consecutive losses against the Buffalo Bills and the San Diego Chargers I believe Al Davis will fire the young coach. BAD MOVE. In my opinion. 

The team played well in Buffalo. Not well enough, though.  The prevent defense did just that...Again. 

I'd prefer to look at the positives.  I believe th team can get better under Kiifin. I don't ( Does Anyone? ) want to try Again with another offense?  Knapp has to stay.  New offensive blocking for the O-Line  will retard the progress done by many.

I hurt.
