Oakland Raiders Implode

Just wanted to take a moment to unload a bit on how I feel about today's game against K.C.

Boller should be cut. Period. An absolute ridiculous show of a backup who "knows" the offense. In hindsight I think Pryor would've been a better start.


The Coach - Didn't stay with the run when Bush was doing it all.  Wasting 1 or 2 downs each and every series on the deep ball.  We could've had 200+ yards on the ground.


I'm pissed.

Oakland Raiders

We got the big win last week against the Philadelphia Eagles.  Now it's time to put together an actual winning streak. Imagine that. . .

Oakland fans have suffered for far too long. I am one of the many who has.  As big of a win that was against Philly, for me it was huge since I reside in a suburb of Philadelphia and hear their talk resounding across the radiowaves nonstop. 

This one was special to me so I could hear all the talk excuses for the Eagles loss.  Oakland Raiders win period. Jamarcuss Russell led a team possessed; especially the defense. What can I say there. A complete game.

Gotta leave it there but so many thoughts on the win.

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 ...

Red Wings Bye Week???


I like hockey - an awful lot.  Not just the Red Wings, but All teams... O.K. NOT the Avalanche OR Ducks             ...So, when the schedule came out a ways back you can understand my dismay at this weeks Detroit's game's - or should I say - Lack of game's.


I see a game on Sunday and the following Saturday but...  ?

With the Big Red Machine playing atypical on defense this actually looked good for a moment,  time to practice get the Winged Wheel running with the precision that you and I demand and expect.

Then we see that Detroit plays 3 games in 4 nights after the New Jersey Devils.

Am I  crazy - Don't answer that!

With the long season that the NHL has I do realize that there's bound to be some glitches but c'mon boys!!

I really don't like to b!+ch & moan because this week the Wings will get well.  Just wanted to vent because I want my Red Wings.

Oakland Raiders: Angst to Anger!

BREAKING NEWS

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?

Raiders Spinning Out Of Control

Another NFL season, another year of Oakland Raider turmoil.  At least this year, for the most part, the turmoil is between the head coach and the "powers that be."

To his credit Lane has done an admirable job in a "no-win" situation.  "No-win" IMO, because he refused to tow the company line.  Al Davis  doesn't respond well to criticism of his team, nor does he react well to someone else's input on personal  ala' Jon Gruden or "The Rat."

Unfortunately, if when Lane is dismissed as the Raiders coach, any continuity that has been achieved will be gone.

It pains me to no end to see My Franchise (Management & Coaches) behaving like teenagers.  When will the madness end?  How long will this insanity continue?  I see more dark days to come from where I'm watching.

How will a coaching change retard JaMarcus Russell and his growth?  Nnamdi Asoughma a franchise player again next year? (Charles Woodson flashback)

As the years progress I got more questions and precious few answers.

Go Raiders.

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.
