    "We almost beat you guys."

    That's what they kept saying last season. In fact, they'd say "we almost beat you not once but twice."
    28-14
    31-17
    Hardly nail biters!!!! :lol:

    This game was a nail biter.
    Who knows what would have happened if not for that Dobbins interception.

    they're getting better though. Give them 1-2 more seasons, and they'll be really competitive. I think this year and next is our window. By 2010, Chiefs and Raiders will be hot on our heals. The division is going to get a lot tougher.

    I believe raiderfans.net was the F2FA Raiders affiliate at one time, but got kicked off for some reason. :icon_shrug: :lol:

    I completely disagree with you. Without head coach continuity, and with the incessant undermining of the head coach's authority that runs rampant throughout the organization, from Al Davis not letting the HC manage the team's actions on the field, to members of the front office causing havoc during press conferences, thereby making the HC look stupid and unable to handle even the non-players, I see this organization sinking further and further into a cesspool until Al Davis finally dies or at least relinquishes his authority as owner.

    All of this makes me laugh inside. A lot. :icon_rofl::icon_rofl:

    ...The first half of this game, was one of the most frustrating things I've ever witnessed. The Raiders get up for the Bolts most of the time and they were UP for this game. They have a very quick defense and some of their athletes are much better than I thought. Kinda makes you wonder why they stunk so badly against the Donks :icon_shrug:

    I agree. And when (if) Davis ever does die, I think the raiders as an organization are going to be sold over to New Jersey and the nation as we know it will be gone.

    In light of today's developments in Oakland... I'm guessing you'd like to take this opportunity to re-evaluate this assessment? :icon_shrug:

    Kiffin's Long Kiss Goodbye makes any progress they've made irrelevant. Morale will suck. Cable is a caretaker who will manage the team, while the coordinators do the real work in games. There's just no way the guy is ready to run a team right now. He might make a great HC one day, but that day has not arrived.

    Yup. I don't see how ditching Kiffen will have any positive impact on the team.

    The press is so madly in love with the Raiders that they bought into the "Kiffen is holding them back" retric too.

    They keep saying how the Raiders have all the elements in place.
    They have a fast defense.
    A QB with a promising future
    A good solid RB that could become something good.
    What else?

    Oh... I forgot.
    If not the best, one of the best kickers in the league.
