I am writing this with 6:00 minutes left in the Raiders game against the Texans with the score at 29-6 Texans. The Raiders are getting better, though, scoring three whole more points on offense than they had the week earlier against Denver.
Jeff Garcia has stated what I have thought for a long time, Garcia stated that the Raiders do have some young players who want to win but have too many others that just want to show up and pick up a pay check.
The once-proud Oakland Raiders have become nothing more than a punchline and a laughing stock throughout the NFL. When you have fans that show more heart and courage than many of the players, it is a sad day in Raiderland.
I was a die-hard fan for many many years and have raised Raider fans who are now in their 30s and have (for the most part) watched nothing but very bad Raiders football during their life.
They had a few good years in the early 2000s, but let's face it; prior to that, the Raiders were bad for many years and now, going into a seven-year run of playing some of the worst football ever played in the history of the NFL, I am done.
I will make a prediction that the Raiders walk out of Texas today with no more than the six points they now have on the scoreboard. The offense during a game gains as many yards as an average team scores in a half.
Let's face it; the Oakland Raiders are the modern-day New Orleans Saints. At least the old Saints played well enough to have fans show up for the games wearing bags over their heads. These Raiders are so bad that fans do not even care to watch the games anymore.
Until the Raiders cut the punks, no matter who they may be, and start bringing in football players, nothing will change. With a loss today and the Raiders' schedule, a 1-7 or 1-8 start is looking like a good bet.
What was it, one of the old coaches fired a few years ago who said about his team, I think is was he had the dumbest team in the NFL.
The Oakland Raiders have become nothing more than a big joke and have been nothing but a joke for seven years now.
I love quality football, and to sit and watch this garbage that the Raiders put on the field and try to pass off as football, I wish them well now and in the future but I will waste no more of my time and or money watching this bunch of players who have little pride and very little heart.
The Raiders do have a few great players that do not belong in the following statement, but the Oakland Raiders have far too many punks wearing the Silver and Black than they do real football players.
The poor few players they have that are the real deal, to have to take the field with the other heartless punks week in and week out, year in and year out must eat them alive.
No more Raiders win or lose until I die, start playing something other than Bush League football and maybe I will take the time to watch again, until than see ya later.
Punt, Punt, Punt, Fumble, Safety, Punt, Fumble.
Incomplete, dropped pass, run for a loss, incomplete, incomplete, pick.
3 points, 0 points, 6 points, 13 points, 3 points.
That is what Raiders football has become game in and game out, and I am done.
