If the world really is supposed to end in 2012, it would be perfectly fine with the Oakland Raiders.
The Raiders are riding a six-game losing streak, their longest since 2007. With each week that passes, they become less of a threat and more of a joke to the rest of the NFL.
The aura of "Commitment to Excellence" and "Just Win, Baby" have been lost this season, and nobody is doing anything to restore them.
The Raiders have learned some hard lessons this season and will have three more games to decide how they will finish off 2012.
