BREAKING NEWSLane 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.
Al Davis- What is wrong with you, man?
