Rejoice Nation: You have a good, scrappy team. Tougher than we've ever saw in a long time. Formidable. All you prediction article writers still feel Pitt, Balt, and the NFC East are all automatic losses? Do you really?

McFadden tripped twice, once for a turnover.

Jamarcus has not connected with his WR's til that brilliant final drive. But he's got grit. His running first down was brilliant.

Zach Miller IS ALL THAT.


Richard Seymour: you are doing good, but you joined a defense that can play without you. John Marshall had me fooled.

Even the color commentators are in shock: The Raiders are playing old-school man-to-man on BOTH sides of the ball.

TIME OF POSSESSION: Ridiculously lopsided in favor of the Raiders. Keep up this clock management, Jamarcus, keep the defense fresh and look what happens!

Huff: Verdict's out.

Tyvon Branch: of three critical plays in a row, NAILED TWO including the tackle of that 300 hundred pound runner. He blew coverage late on LT for the touchdown...but I thought LT was down on the one.

Trevor Scott--nailing Sproles after a punt. WOW.

Officiating. Overturning that TD. WTF? It was a TD. Unbelievable.

Bush---THIS IS OUR RB. Fargas I miss. Didn't see him run once.

Rankin on special teams? That's where he belongs now.

Neutralizing Rivers? SD defense burned every step?????? WOW?????????

Keep it up Raiders. We love you.



SO MUCH MORE. Incredible so far.
