When the Oakland Raiders go out and beat the San Diego Chargers on Monday Night Football, ESPN, I do not want to hear about it.

When Richard Seymour shows up at the Raiders practice facility, Adam Schefter, I don't want to hear about it.

When the Raiders win their 10 games, including five in their division, there better not be anyone except Mark Schlereth saying, "I told ya so."

When Tom Cable proves that he is worth more as a head coach than he is already as an offensive line coach, don't try and tell me that you said it would happen Bill Williamson.

When Darrius Heyward-Bey is still getting double teamed in week 16, I don't want to hear anything from you, Mel Kiper, Jr. Don't you know there is a reason why they call you junior boy, shut UP!

Todd McShay, Kiper hates you, he's jealous that ESPN is trying to replace him with a younger face, don't you take his side on this one!

When Javon Walker proves that he can be counted on, and becomes a go-to-guy again, don't tell me anything John Clayton.

When Chaz Schilens catches 80 passes, ten for touchdowns, this year, Raider Nation will be the only people who can say, "We told you so."

When JaMarcus Russell is elected to the Pro Bowl after week 13, I will say, "I told you so." And I don't want to hear anything from you Jeff Garcia butt pokers.

When Shake, Rattle, and Roll smash, crash, and dash their way to 2,600+ yards, and lead the league in rushing, Justin Fargas can say, "I told you so."

When the defense comes out after the season, and knocks the giant globs of grass and turf off of their facemasks, they will say, "What rushing defense problem?"

When the Raiders finish this season will a better record than the Kevin O'Connell led Patriots, Randy Moss will say, "How come Richard Seymour is the only one who gets to go play for the Raiders?"

After this season, many questions will be answered. There is one answer, however, that needs no questioning.

That is, regardelss of the outlet, Nobody, and I mean NObody believed in Oakland this season. I don't care what kind of garbage they want you to believe, they did not have faith.

One group did, one nation stood as a united front against the diooubts, the hate, the jealousy, the lies, the misgivings, the misleadings, one core group of hardcore Raiders' fans, and that is Raider Nation.

When all is said and done, Al's Wingman will be preaching how he said it would happen, Coach Elkins will be choking, not his chicken, no, but on his words.

All these little Denver Donkey fans who want to ruin our mo-jo will be SHHHHHHH!

All the Chargers fans who said, "there is no way you'll beat us," or "your team still sucks!" will be SHHHHHHH! 

Chiefs fans can't say anything anyway, so I won't even bother to go there.

The point is, Raider Nation, I don't want to hear it from the mass media when the Raiders start checking off W's on the schedule. That is all, take care.
