    Raiders still being the Raiders

    I just watched on NFL Network vs Atlanta :
    http://www.nfl.com/gamecenter?game_i...tab_gamecenter

    Some more pearls:
    -A
    total -2 yards in the 1st half
    :-*
    -His 2 RB got 3 touches for a total of - 2 yards

    -J.Russell
    did not go for 31 yards ,he went for a total of 10
    ;D (cause of sacks)
    -They got the ball less than a Q ,only 14:45 mins


    Lions fans step up!!!

    Oakland sucks! I should have won in FF but the guy I played against had the Atlanta Falcons defense and scored 26 points.

    If the Lions find a way to lose this one, you can all but book an 0-16 season.
    This game should be televised on all major networks for all the world to see the ineptness of these two teams.

    Re: Raiders still being the Raiders

    The Raiders are stuck in 1969 with their "pass long" philosophy. They continue to build bad teams "from the outside in", getting receivers first and then worrying later about who will block for the QB while their QB is taking that 8-step drop to throw the ball 65 yards. As John Gruden noted, "the QB will never get time to do that, because by that time, he will be on his back". When Gruden was coach, he brought in Rich Gannon and implemented a west coast offense which worked well. When he left, the revolving door at head coach has resulted in terrible teams and a re-commitment to "the long ball".

    Oh, did I mention that their defense is totally 2-dimensional and scares no one because they never blitz ?

    I love the Raiders because thye just remained me that Viking football life could be much worse.

    The rigors of Spartan life. Leonidas is cast out into the wild, and survives the harsh winter to return to his home, when he is crowned King ....a Viking!

    As long as a certain mad old git is running that team, they will continue to suck. What they need is a good coach, free to build his system for a couple years and the owner staying the hell away from the on-field and personnel decisions.

    Re: Raiders still being the Raiders

    Haha ya my buddy is a die hard raider fan and finally got the chance to go see them....unfortunately that was the game he chose. He said he wanted to leave after the first touchdown and the fans were all jerks.

    He got to cheer once the whole game and that was the blocked field goal that they did nothing with....

    I felt so bad.
