I know I'm going to be ridiculed by all you folks who are not using your heads.

It's time for you haters to take some sleeping pills and lay down in your beds.

If you want be a boo bird act like a spoiled turd

Then turn the TV off, we don't need your words.

The Cable guy brought the best staff we've had in several years

Yet about Randy Hanson is all we hear.



And you follow like a bunch of lost souls.

Look at the Coliseum and all it's empty rows.

Are you a friend, or are you foes?

You realize that this is a war, not a single fight.

The Raiders won the battle on Monday Night.

But how soon you all forget

Perhaps you would prefer Aaron Brooks.

Maybe Tuiasosopo should get another look.

Let's bring back that guy named Mirer

As we throw JaMarcus into the fire.

How about the journeyman Kerry Collins

Who completed 54.9 percent in his eleventh and twelfth years here.

Perhaps he could give you a reason to cheer.

Where's Andrew Walter? He was our saving grace.

His 52.6 career rating could save our face.

With his three career touchdowns and 16 interceptions

Am I starting to make a lasting impression?

How about some Daunte Culpepper, anybody, any takers

The guy that I called Josh "McClown."

He sure showed way more poise on his way to the ground.

Here we go around and round and round

It's the QB carousel, all together now

JaMarcus' "first season" he threw 66 passes. If you count that as a season, then he has played two seasons already this year. This man is not in his third year, he is in the sixth game of his second year, and he is better than all of the above mentioned quarterbacks.

So, Raider Nation, who is the lesser of evils. Let us not forget where we came from, okay?

Let us have a chat about Art Shell

Who came out of his hiatus and put us through hell.

With his bed and breakfast offensive coordinator

These two should just go and crochet a sweater.

We can talk about the success of Norv Turner

But we'd have to talk coordinators not coaches

Because if we talked about his head coaching we'd all just be laughin'.

Turner would be there bewildered wondering, what the heck happened?

What about Bill Callahan, well what about him?

All of his players back-stabbed and talked crap about him.

He was Gruden's shadow that fell off, and was cast off.

Let's forget this part of our chat because his legacy's lost

As far as Kiffin's go, too bad we got Lane and not Monte.

We might as well have hired Bobby and Terry LaBonte.

Good genes doesn't mean you can butt heads with Allen

Al was allergic to Lane like kids are to pollen.

Maybe you guys want to bring back Joe Bugel?

Coach Tom Cable has brought us the best staff in years. He is the perfect candidate to handle a problem we've had for years, our offensive line. He has brought in a great quarterbacks coach and a great defensive coordinator.

Perfection doesn't happen overnight, it's a very time consuming process. So before we tear these guys to shreds, and take out six years of frustration on a team that has done very little to deserve it except continuing the time honored tradition, let's think with our heads.

If you go to the game Sunday, don't boo at your team. That's very unbecoming of you.
