  2. I'm a Raiders fan ... so typically used to years of disappointment. :(
    And after a total kick-butt season, once again ... back to disappointment with two injured big guns and working with the 3'rd string QB.

    Oh well, maybe a miracle .... :oops:

    My little Giants gnome is ready for the frozen tundra of Green Bay. Don't expect too much but I'm glad they're playing anyway.

    Umm ... you guys took Connor Cook. You had Dak Prescott sitting there waiting.

  9. Unfortunately I'm just a fan Eddie, and so I have no influence on what Mark Davis does, just as I had none with his dad when he benched Marcus Allen and stayed with Marc Wilson way too long ... 'both' for personal non-football reasons. ;)

    I would add that although a real chip off the old block, IMHO if Al was like Caligula, then Mark is like his intellectually impaired brother Nero ...

    But ... the Raiders are young, can finally play 4 qtrs of D, and although this year has shown the Raiders D is prone to making immature mistakes, they're growing fast.
    So I think Raider fans have good reason to look forward to next year ..... 'again'!

    We'll see ...

  11. Yeah Allroy, they played a physical season, and in football, well ... that's been a "live by the sword, die by the sword" sort of thing for them this year. :(

    Raiders are going home tonight. But the good thing is that they have a good young team. Few teams can win with their 3rd string QB. The future lies with Carr ... he's gotta stay healthy. Franchise QB's don't grow on trees ... if you lose one, you usually lose.

    If it makes you feel better, Brady is probably going to mop the floor with the Texans next week.

    That's not really fair - if DAK rode the bench all season and was thrown in the wildcard game - I doubt if he would have done any better - just sayin !

    Poor raiders, losing QB at worst time. Giants may be in position to make another run. I'm not expecting much out of Miami, years of mediocrity.
    I don't follow it seriously, but hopefully we'll have 3 weeks of good football.
